Description

The class 05 diesel locomotive was designed and built in the early 1950's by the Hunslet Engine Company. 69 of this class of locomotive were built between 1955 and 1961 and having a top speed of 18mph meant that they were an ideal shunting locomotives for BR. Most of them were shipped off to the Eastern and Scottish region of BR. Unfortunately they had quite a short life span as by 1968 a vast majority were scrapped leaving 4 in preservation.

This stunning replica features stunning exterior detail including applied handrails, brake pipes, fuel cap and working headlights. All the wheels pick up power from the track and being quite a heavy locomotive it has excellent traction and hauling power. The buffers and screw couplings are sprung for added realism. A varnished wooden base is attached to the locomotive for both transportation and display usage.

For DCC use; a 21 Pin Decoder is required and for sound you will need a suitable Sound Decoder and Speaker.
