With the arrival of our new Narrow Gauge OO9 scale Baldwin locomotives, you may be wondering which control system is best to use with these models. The technology inside our OO9 Baldwins is similar to that found in our current range of Graham Farish N scale models and as with the Farish range, we recommend using a modern control system for operating these OO9 locomotives.
For analogue users we recommend the Bachmann Train Control & Transformer (36-565), or other analogue controllers with a similar specification to this. Customers using DCC need look no further than our Next18 DCC Decoder (36-567) which fits neatly into the Next18 socket fitted to the model. Visit your local Bachmann stockist to pick up the right accessories to ensure you can start enjoying your Baldwin locomotives straight away!

Included with these arrivals was our Class 3F Tank ‘Jinty’ No. 7365 in LMS Black livery with sound (32-227DS). This highly detailed model, which is now on its way to Bachmann stockists, features a new chassis, sprung buffers and factory fitted sound. As with all of our factory fitted sound models, in both N & OO scale, the sound features on this Jinty locomotive are not only restricted to DCC layouts. A selected range of sound effects will play on analogue layouts bringing a new level of realism to your model railway – whether it’s DCC or analogue controlled. Watch our video below to hear the full range of sounds available when using the model on DCC!
This model joins two other classmates in the Branchline OO scale range, with No. 47673 currently available in BR Black weathered livery with Late Crest (32-235) and No. 47619 in British Railways Black livery (32-236) which is due for release in the coming months – keep an eye out on our homepage for further updates.
