The new Graham Farish ‘N’ gauge Class 40 made a step forward during May with the arrival of decorated samples of the centre headcode version in BR green and BR blue.
These are two of four versions which are to be released – all of which will have directional lighting, a Next18 decoder socket and provision for simple installation of digital sound. In addition, one version – Cat No. 371-183DS.
This pair of samples are D369 in BR green with small yellow warning panels (371-181) and 40159 in BR blue with full yellow ends (371-182). The new tools also cater for the pilot scheme disc headcode locomotives modelling D211 Mauretania in original BR green livery (371-180) and the split headcode bonnet front as 40141 in BR blue with full yellow ends and sound (371-183DS).
Priced at £139.95 each (£209.95 for the sound version), release is expected in September/October.
