We are delighted to announce that our much anticipated Western Pullman Ultima Digital Sound Train Set, has reached the Bachmann Warehouse and is being shipped out to our stockists now!
When they entered service in 1960, the prestigious 6-car Pullman DEMUs broke new ground in long-distance business commuting to London. They were the predecessor of the InterCity 125 and their influence still resonates in the operating methods of fixed formation diesel units today. 50 years after the Class 251 units received their striking reversed version of the corporate BR blue and grey livery on the Western Region, we’re bringing them back to life as part of our OO scale Western Pullman Ultima Sound Fitted Train Set, featuring directional, cab and interior lighting – including working table lamps.
Our model of the Western Pullman is an innovator too, with two SOUND FITTED power cars incorporating a sophisticated audio system, allowing a range of operational and auxiliary sounds to be played by each power car to bring true authenticity to your model railway & making this train set not only one of the biggest but also the most technologically advanced that we have produced to date!
After transfer from the Midland Region in 1967, the two 6-car Pullman units had multiple working equipment fitted, enabling impressive 12-car trains to be operated; our model faithfully captures these modifications, prototypically taking as its basis our exquisite Midland Pullman.
Included in the set is a large circle of track and our Dynamis Ultima DCC system meaning you can run your train straight out of the box and operate a range of realistic sound and lighting features from the ergonomically-designed wireless handset – or even explore the world of computer control thanks to the trial copy of Dynamis RailController that is also included!
To coincide with the arrival into model shops we have created a video to give you a closer look at some of the features of our biggest ever Train Set!
30-420 Western Pullman Ultima Digital Sound Train Set is available now!
