'Tugs' in Production!
We're pleased to report that our new batch of O gauge Class 60s 'Tugs' is now in production - and looking very impressive. Following improvements to the decoration on certain items, all are now approved and assembly is underway.
These imposing Brush-built heavy haulers are being produced in a wide range of colourful liveries, ranging from original Railfreight grey through to contemporary DCRail, GBRf and Cappagh colour schemes. Whatever your preference, there will be something to suit your needs as we've seen unprecedented demand from retailers for additional exclusive versions. Our friends at Gaugemaster, Tower Models and KMS Railtech have added seven additional versions in total, with a further exclusive livery due to be revealed soon by a well-known retailer.
