Bachmann Regional Exclusives


Bachmann’s limited-edition range of regional exclusive ‘OO’ gauge models has been boosted with the announcement of four new Class 37s to the range.

The latest additions include Class 37/4 37425 Sir Robert McAlpine/Concrete Bob in Direct Rail Services ‘Compass’ livery (Cat No. 32-370NF/32-370NFDS), Class 37/5 37685 in InterCity ‘Swallow’ livery (32-392RJ/32-392RJDS), Class 37/0 37055 Rail Celebrity in Mainline livery (Cat No. 32-775TL/32-775TLDS)** and Class 37/0 37032 in weathered BR Railfreight red stripe livery (32-775SD/32-775SDDS). Each will be offered in Digital Command Control (DCC) ready and DCC sound-fitted formats.

Pristine Class 37 models are priced at £164.95 for DCC ready and £254.95 for DCC sound-fitted, while weathered examples are priced at £174.95 and £264.95 respectively, with delivery anticipated later this year.

Selected by Bachmann’s area sales representatives, each limited-edition model is only available from retailers within specific geographic areas of the UK.
