The British Rail Class 37 is a favourite among enthusiasts and modellers alike and, having been a firm fixture in the Bachmann Branchline OO scale range for many years, in 2022 an all-new model of this iconic locomotive was launched. Built to unprecedented levels of accuracy and fidelity, the new Branchline model incorporates the latest technology and shares many common features and specifications with the award winning Bachmann Branchline Class 47. Finished in original BR Green livery, this Class 37/0 depicts No. D6710 and is supplied in SOUND FITTED DELUXE format.

Following in the footsteps of the Class 47, our all-new OO scale Class 37 has been designed from the rails up to ensure this classic locomotive is modelled in all its glory. With high fidelity mouldings, numerous separately fitted parts and countless tooling variations to capture the minutiae of the real locomotives throughout their lives, our new 37 is brought to life with an exquisite livery application using true-to-prototype colours, fonts and logos. Along with an exceptional array of lighting features, our Dual Fitted speaker system brings this SOUND FITTED DELUXE model to life and what’s more, it also features our award-winning motorised radiator fan and authentic tinted windscreen glazing!
