Bachmann reveals Class 45 limited editions


Five new Sales Area Exclusives – models produced by Bachmann for sale through retailers in specific areas – have been announced covering the Class 45/0 in ‘OO’ gauge with a sealed beam nose end, as modified in the second half of the 1970s.

Each version will be available DCC ready and DCC sound fitted (catalogue numbers with SF suffix) with the locomotives selected being 45022 Lytham St Annes (Cat No. 32-683RJ/32-683RJSF), 45040 The King’s Shropshire Light Infantry (32-684DB/32-684DBSF), 45041 Royal Tank Regiment (32-685DB/32-685DBSF), 45046 Royal Fusilier (32-686NF/32-686NFSF) and 45049 The Staffordshire Regiment (The Prince of Wales’s) (32-687TL/32-687TLSF).

Prices are set at £144.95 for DCC ready versions and £234.95 for sound fitted versions – a release date is to be confirmed. This will be the first large scale release of the Class 45/0 by Bachmann with a sealed beam nose end, as the previous issue was only released as a limited edition.
