Dapol Announces N Scale Class 86 Locomotive

Dapol Announces N Scale Class 86 Locomotive

Published: 19/04/2017 11:14:08

Locomotive available to pre-order in four new liveries, and DCC-Fitted option.

Dapol Class 86

Dapol are delighted to announce the production of 4 more N Gauge Class 86 Locomotives.

The British Rail Class 86 Bo-Bo electric locomotive was the first large scale standard electric locomotive brought into service and was developed from the earlier Class 81 to 85.

One hundred locomotives were built by British Rail at Doncaster and English Electric at the Vulcan Works, Newton-le-Willows between 1965 and 1966 to operate a high speed passenger and freight service on the newly electrified West Coast Line. Some of the class were named after towns or counties that the lines they worked passed through.

The class underwent some substantial modifications during its long life including suspension changes, power and speed upgrades and the ability to operate push-pull services with Mk3 Driving Van Trailers. Post BR privatisation the fleet was divided amongst many operators including Anglia Railways, EWS, Freightliner, Virgin Cross Country and West Coast. Currently, Freightliner still has a small fleet of Class 86s in use and four survive into preservation.

The Dapol Class 86 features:

  • Finely detailed body with many extra fitted items
  • 5 pole Super Creep motor with incredible controllable slow running speed
  • All wheel drive and pick up
  • Directional lights
  • Finely detailed and posable pantograph
  • DCC Ready with provision for a 6 pin decoder
  • Accessory bag with optional fitted parts
