An ex-display 00 gauge example especially developed by “Hornby Model Railways” as part of their Super Detail DCC Series. This Class 73 Pullman Car Company (BO-BO Diesel Electric) running number 73101 is named “”The Royal Alex””! This example is complete with packaging and paperwork.

These locomotives were ordered as part of the British Railways 1955 Modernisation plan which included the extension of the Southern Region electrification to various main lines.

The Class 73 is a British model of electro-diesel locomotive. The type is unusual in that it can operate from the Southern Region’s 650/750 V DC third-rail or an on-board diesel engine to operate on non-electrified routes.

Following the withdrawal and scrapping of the more powerful Class 74 electro-diesels in 1977, the Class 73 is now unique on the British railway network. 10 locomotives have been scrapped.
