Class 20 dummy chassis for Graham Farish (Poole) locos - £22 per chassis
Class 20 dummy chassis for Graham Farish by Bachmann (China) locos - £22 per chassis
After the success of my Class 24 and Class 25 dummy chassis, I was asked to look at expanding my range of Dummy Chassis kits. The British Rail Class 20, otherwise known as an English Electric Type 1, is a class of diesel-electric locomotive. In total, 228 locomotives in the class were built by English Electric between 1957 and 1968. The locomotives were originally numbered D8000–D8199 and D8300–D8327. Initially allocated in the Midlands, North of England and in Scotland, they eventually became very well known for Double-Heading trains, both on freights and even Passenger workings.
I have now made available my Class 20 Unpowered Chassis, I have developed 2 variants, to fit either the original Graham Farish Poole body or the newer DCC ready Farish by Bachmann body, It comes with a chassis, 2 bogies with retainer pins, 4 wheels and 2 couplings with springs.
The bogie side frames have lots on show including sandboxes, steps, axleboxes, etc... I have incorporated pockets for the Rapido style sprung coupling allowing you to couple to another locomotive should you wish to for double heading, top and tail or a dead in tow locomotive or locomotives.
With my Class 20 chassis you need to choose which body you want it to fit, this is due to the width of the gap in the nose of the Locomotive.
If you are not sure, the easiest way to tell is to check if the loco has lights, if it has lights and the body is a made of plastic then it's the newer Farish by Bachmann Body. If there are no lights, and it has a heavy, metal body you have an original Poole Farish Class 20 body. Please ensure you select the correct version from the buttons above.
