K316 - BR Class 55 Diesel ‘DELTIC’
The legendary 3300hp ‘Deltics’ were introduced in 1961 and spent their operational lives on express passenger services between Kings Cross, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Leeds and Hull. In the two decades since their final withdrawal from active service they have acquired a huge railfan following. This kit of Britain’s best-loved diesel class follows the revolutionary class 37 in featuring an alloy body, correctly detailed bogies and other underframe gear, preformed etched roof panels, fans and engine grille covers, etched windscreen wipers, sprung buffers, cab interiors and flush glazing. Optional air horns, buffer-beam pipework and other fittings are included to enable the builder to model these locomotives at any stage of their distinguished careers. A working lighting kit is available as a separate item.
