The all-new Bachmann Branchline Class 20/0 broke cover in 2021, our first New Tooling project to be unveiled in the quarterly British Railway Announcements, and now we have expanded our tooling suite further in order to offer models of the locomotives that were fitted with tablet catcher apparatus. This model of No. D8032 has disc headcodes and comes pre-fitted with the tablet catcher, decorated in original BR Green livery.

This latest generation Bo-Bo diesel locomotive from Bachmann Branchline brings the classic BR Class 20/0 right up to date, capturing the subtle lines of these distinctive locomotives. The high level of detail is brought to life by the intricate livery application, whilst the powerful drive mechanism, Plux22 DCC interface and a full suite of lighting offers the perfect complement to the model’s good looks.
