Description

The Class 67 is a BoBo Diesel Electric mainline locomotive built for the English, Welsh and Scottish (EWS) Railway between 1999 and 2000. They were built in a joint venture between Alstom in Valencia and General Motors diesel who supplied the main drive train.

30 locomotives were ordered as Class 47 replacements for use on high speed mail and passenger trains. After several modifications the Class 67 was passed for 125MPH running in June 2003.

After the termination of the Royal Mail/EWS contract in 2003, the locomotives passed on to other operators including First Scotrail, Wrexham & Shropshire who then after the operators closure passed them on to Chiltern Railways. Two Class 67’s were used for the prestigious Royal Trains, Queens Messenger and Royal Sovereign. Other special liveries included a red livery with White Maple Leaf in honour of the former EWS and DB Schenker UK Chairman Keith Heller. This was modelled by Dapol during 2011.

The Dapol Class 67 includes:

Finely detailed moulded body, chassis and bogies
Detailed and finely printed Graphics
NEM Pockets as standard
Directional Lighting
DCC Ready
On powered variants skew wound 5 Pole Super Creep Motor for excellent slow speed control
All Wheel pick up with Tungsten Chassis for fantastic Haulage
Detailing and Accessory Pack Included
