AS REVEALED ON this site earlier this week, Bachmann’s has released two variants of the Class 57 locomotive in its ‘N’ gauge Graham Farish range. RAIL EXPRESS Modeller has managed to get hold of a production sample of the experimental Class 57/6 type No. 57601 in its striking purple and silver Porterbrook livery (Item No. 371-653). More pictures below.
The model is entirely new and utilises R&D from the firm’s well regarded 4mm scale release. Also now available is Freightliner green No. 57003 Freightliner Evolution (371-651). See RAIL EXPRESS Modeller’s full review in issue No. 37 (FREE with RAIL EXPRESS No. 132) out on April 19th.
