I will be using this in a forthcoming review. I must say that it is a fantastic model. Runs very well and is solid and strong. Perfect for hauling rolling stock around any layout.

As I don't know much about these Class 20 locos. Can anyone please tell me something about them? There are versions with disks and versions with head-boxes. When doubled-up, were the disk locos and head box locos ever mixed? Were they from different periods? Were head-boxes added to the disk versions to upgrade them?

I have a BR blue one and it is an excellant runner you wouldnt know it was their and It never derails even on the most foul trackwork
As for some information while they near always ran in pairs in the Blue period I have seen a picture of 2 class 20s running a sprinter replacement service consisting of 2 mk1 Sks and a Bg aswell as the 2 class 20s
