Bachmann Europe Plc has re-released its O gauge Brassworks Class 101 diesel multiple unit. The model was first released on to the market in 1999 as an unpainted brass model.
The Class 101 was the most successful of the first generation diesel multiple units introduced by British Railways. A total of 153 two car, 54 three car and 38 four car units were by Metropolitan Cammell at Birmingham between 1956 and 1959. The last five units saw service around Manchester before being withdrawn on 24 December 2003. Over 40 vehicles have been preserved for use on Heritage Railways.
The Bachmann Brassworks O gauge Class 101 diesel multiple units are available as a two car unit pre-painted in BR green livery (BW295). It is not supplied with crests, glazing, interior, lining or numbers. Recommended retail price is £645.00.
