The model has been tooled from scratch to replace the aged Graham Farish version of the same class. The new version will be available with disc and centre headcodes while also featuring a Next18 DCC decoder socket, directional lighting and cab lighting. It is also to be DCC sound compatible. It will also be the first Graham Farish range diesel to be built around the coreless motor – previously the coreless motor has only been used in steam designs by the manufacturer.
