The Class 40 Diesel Locomotive has long been a highlight of the Bachmann Branchline OO scale fleet, and for 2023 this popular model has been upgraded to bring you more features than ever before. This model depicts preserved locomotive No. D345 which is presented in its current condition, carrying retro BR Green livery with small yellow panels but with the modern adornments of overhead warning flashes and orange cantrail lining. The locomotive’s unique nose end combination, with central headcode panels and high intensity headlights, is also modelled faithfully.

With the DCC decoder interface upgraded to Plux22; new lighting features and enhanced speaker arrangements have also been employed on the Class 40 to enhance the operating experience. On track the model has a mighty presence, just like the real locomotives and, with its five pole, twin flywheel motor powering all six driving wheels, you can be sure of a performance to match too. This Class 40’s good looks are enriched by the superb livery application using true-to-prototype colours, fonts and logos to produce a model fit for any collection.
