Mickleover Model Railway Group (MMRG) has commissioned a new ‘OO’ gauge limited edition with Bachmann to model one of Eastfield depot’s re-railing train tool vans using the manufacturer’s BR Mk 1 Gangway Brake (BG). The vehicle has been chosen to link with MMRG’s recently-arrived Scottish themed ‘OO’ limited edition of 37114 Dunrobin Castle.
The tool van is being released in engineers yellow with black chevrons as ADB977155QRV and will include Highland terrier motifs of Eastfield depot on the bodywork, as demonstrated by this hand-painted sample. It models the BG in the 1980s/1990s period and is expected to be released in late 2018 or early 2019 priced at £47.95.
All profits from the model will be used to fund the rebuilding of MMRG’s clubrooms to keep the club and the Derby Model Railway Exhibition going.
