Graham Farish (Poole) Class 50 - £25 per chassis
Dapol Class 50 - £25 per chassis
A choice of two chassis's to either fit the older Farish model or the newer Dapol locomotive body.
The British Rail Class 50 is a class of diesel locomotives designed to haul express passenger trains at 100 mph. Built by English Electric between 1967 and 1968, the Class 50s were employed hauling express passenger trains, quite frequently in pairs, on the then non-electrified section of the West Coast Main Line between Crewe and Scotland. Initially numbered D400–D449 and became Class 50's. Once the WCML was electrified North, the Hoovers, as they were affectionately known, were then sent down to the Western Region where they continued to haul expresses and occasional other duties where needed.
The chassis comes with underslung fuel tank detailing and generators on either side and is designed to fit inside the body of your chosen locomotive.
The Dapol kit also comes with a Bufferbeam with a pair of Oval buffers with steps on the side of the buffer too.
The bogie side frames have lots on show including sandboxes, steps, axleboxes, etc... I have incorporated pockets for the Rapido style spring coupling allowing you to couple to another locomotive should you wish to for double heading, or for a dead in tow locomotive.
