Among the latest releases from Bachmann Branchline and Graham Farish are five members of the 22-strong fleet of Class 55 ‘Deltic’ diesel locomotives.

Two new locomotives have joined the Bachmann Branchline OO scale range – both of which are also available with SOUND FITTED – with No. D9010 ‘The King’s Own Scottish Borderer’ in BR Green with small yellow panels and No. 55003 ‘Meld’ in BR Blue with white cab windows. OO scale models of these East Coast icons from Bachmann Branchline remain as popular as ever with modellers, with all versions having already sold out, so don’t delay in contacting your local Bachmann stockist to secure yours today!

Deltic enthusiasts can indulge in the Bachmann Branchline model now and enjoy the prototypical Co-Co drive arrangement which results in a powerful six-axle drive mechanism capable of hauling the heaviest of trains – all powered by a 5-pole motor with twin flywheels. The models also incorporate directional lighting and a 21 Pin DCC decoder socket with space for a speaker too – or why not indulge in a SOUND FITTED model and cut out the hassle of fitting your own.

32-532A – Class 55 ‘Deltic’ 55003 ‘Meld’ BR Blue (also with SOUND FITTED – 32-532ASF)

Each of our SOUND FITTED models is equipped with a ESU Loksound V5 DCC Sound Decoder, providing authentic sound effects when used on both analogue and DCC layouts. On analogue control, SOUND FITTED models will produced prime mover (engine) sounds – which will vary with speed – plus any other automated sounds, whilst on DCC the full suite of sound effects can be played via the corresponding function keys.

Like all Bachmann models, the livery application is exquisite with attention to detail extending as far as the fuel tank gauges. Authentic reproductions of the nameplates are printed, with etched-metal versions also supplied for optional fitting. Era-specific details are modelled too, such as the different horn arrangements and the addition of Electric Train Heating (ETH) connections on the BR Blue machine.

In N scale, three ‘Deltics’ have joined the line-up with D9001 ‘St. Paddy’ finished in weathered BR Green with full yellow ends and No. D9009 ‘Alycidon’ in BR Green with small yellow panels. Completing the trio is No. 55015 ‘Tulyar’ in BR Blue livery complete with white cab windows – the first N scale Deltic to feature this eye-catching livery.

The Graham Farish model is also engineered with a prototypical Co-Co drive arrangement, providing excellent haulage capacity whilst directional lighting and a 6 Pin DCC decoder socket mean that these models can be fitted with a decoder and put to use on DCC in no time at all.

371-285A – Class 55 ‘Deltic’ D9009 ‘Alycidon’ BR Two-Tone Green (SYP)

Fine detailing is apparent throughout the model, with a full complement of bufferbeam detailing supplied in the accessory pack along with era-specific details such as ETH connections and bonnet-mounted horns on the BR Blue version.
