QUOTE (Bachmann Europe Plc)Bachmann Europe Plc has been asked to clarify by Geoffrey Allison the situation regarding nameplates for this limited edition model (32-381X) of No. 37425 'Pride of the Valleys'.

At the request of Geoffrey Allison models the names were not printed on to the side of the locomotive but etched plates have been supplied and these are packed inside the locomotive header card, inside the box.

The reason from deviating from the normal Bachmann practice of printing nameplates and supplying etched ones for application by the purchaser is that this particular locomotive carried them whilst in service with Arriva Trains Wales and was named 'Pride of the Valleys' at Caerphilly on 28th November 2005.

The locomotive also carried the large logo blue livery (but without nameplates) whilst working in Scotland during the 1980s. Those who have Scottish layouts based during that period can also, therefore, operate this model.

Only thing is, 37425 has modern (Yellow) Electrification flash warning signs, so these would have to be changed to the older red ones.
