New OO Class 25s Set For September Delivery
Updated and improved BR/Sulzer Type 2s en route to Europe and expected to reach UK stockists next month.
With interest in this superb model remaining strong after the rapid sellout of the first batch, the rerun features some new variations on the BR green, BR Rail Blue and transitional themes as well as topping up the most popular livery options from the first batch. We also complete the Scottish Region ETHEL story with a second variation of the original blue/grey livery.
The models feature enhanced cab interior decoration to highlight the superb detail inside, plus a few 'tweaks' to the specification based on customer feedback. The cab interior lights, headcode panel lights and tail lights are now be independently switchable in DCC mode. Speaker installation for DCC sound is also easier thanks to the provision of factory-fitted wire leads in the relevant plug/socket on the chassis PCB.
All models are also supplied with an additional bag of bufferbeam detailing parts, as well as etched metal step and grille plates, miniature snowploughs and couplers. Suggested Retail Price (SRP) is £229.00 for all Batch 2 models.
