Dapol New Items

Previous model shown for illustration purposes only.

The British Rail Class 26 is a class of Bo-Bo diesel locomotives built by BCRW between 1958 and 1959. Overall, forty-seven were built and were used for a variety of duties including on London commuter routes into Kings Cross, with one also being loaned to the Scottish Region.

After a strategic re-evaluation of the various small diesel locomotives available, all of the Class 26s were transferred to Scotland and continued in service until 1993. 13 Class 26s survive into preservation in England, Scotland and Wales.

OO Scale LWSR B4 Steam Locomotive - Expected Q4 2019

Dapol New Items

Previous model shown for illustration purposes only.

In 1890 Adams ordered 20 powerful four- coupled tank engines from Nine Elms Works, the design being preferred to six-coupled because of the many poorly laid out goods yards and the sharply curved Cattewater and Sutton Harbour lines at Plymouth.

When the South Western gained control of Southampton docks in 1892, Adams transferred two engines there which had their cab front and back sheets cut away to aid visibility which were named 'Jersey' and 'Guernsey'. Over the next few years twelve more were transferred to the docks, including two of the five built by Drummond. All 25 engines were taken into B.R. stock in January 1948; however fourteen were withdrawn over the next year, leaving just eleven survivors, distributed to Eastleigh, Plymouth, Bournemouth and Ashford.

The last two representatives stationed at Winchester were withdrawn in October 1963, a month short of their seventieth birthday. Happily both have been preserved.

In addition to the original two versions of the locomotive, Dapol will be offering two new variants as indicated below:

Finely moulded body with many separately added fine details

DCC ready with a 6 pin socket included

Cast wheels with fine relief and appropriate colouring
