Mickleover Model Railway Group (MMRG) has taken delivery of its latest exclusive Bachmann ‘OO’ gauge limited edition, 37026 Loch Awe in BR blue (Cat No. 32-779X).
Built at English Electric’s Vulcan Foundry in 1961, the locomotive went on to be named Loch Awe in a ceremony at Glasgow Queen Street station on October 6 1981, as it was regularly used on West Highland Line passenger and freight services at the time.
MMRG’s latest limited-edition portrays 37026 in this early 1980s condition with correct Class 37/0 body tooling, open boiler port, split headcode boxes, gangway doors and includes the distinctive small Highland Terrier emblem carried by locomotives allocated to Glasgow’s Eastfield depot, together with printed nameplates. A set of Shawplan etched ‘plates and a limited-edition certificate are also included.
Priced at £169.99 plus postage and packing for pristine Digital Command Control (DCC) ready examples, just 512 models have been produced. DCC sound-fitted and weathered models are also available on request at additional cost.
Complementing this latest arrival, MMRG’s previous Bachmann limited edition BR Mk 1 BG finished as Eastfield depot Breakdown Train Unit tool van ADB977155QRV, is also still available, priced at £49.99 each.
