Five new livery variations have been added to Hatton’s extensive range of brand-new ‘OO’ gauge Class 66 models – and the retailer has confirmed that the models are now due to arrive during December when pre-ordered.
The new additions model 66743 (Cat No. H4-66-033) and 66746 (H4-66-034) in GB Railfreight Belmond Royal Scotsman maroon as well as 66780 The Cemex Express in GBRf/Cemex colours (H4-66-035), 66623 in Genesee & Wyoming orange and black (H4-66-036) and 66587 As One, We Can in Genesee & Wyoming ONE Ocean Network Express pink and white (H4-66-037).
The pricing for the new additions matches the originally announced batch of 32 locomotives. DCC ready models cost £150 rising to £165 for DCC fitted and £265 for DCC sound versions. The later will be equipped with a LokSound V5 decoder.
Hatton’s has also created a new tooling option to allow 66783 The Flying Dustman to be modelled in its latest condition with a two-piece cabside window (H4-66-032).
The delivery of Hatton’s Class 66 has also been updated. In a statement on its website, Hatton’s said:
“All of the locomotives that are on pre-order will be air freighted.
“If you would like to get your Class 66 before Christmas, you will need to have your pre-order on our system by 5pm on Thursday 14th November.
