A brand new 00 gauge example especially developed by “Bachmann Model Railways” as part of their latest DCC ready series. This Bachmann Class 24 Diesel BR Blue Weathered Model Zone Exclusive 32-425W.

The widely travelled British Railways Class 24 diesel-electric locomotives, also known as the Sulzer Type 2, were built from 1958 to 1961. One hundred and fifty-one were built at BR’s Derby, Crewe and Darlington Works, the first twenty of them as part of the British Railways 1955 Modernisation Plan.

Initial deliveries were for operation in the Crewe and Derby areas, but fifteen of the initial twenty were diverted for use on the Southern Region to cover for delays in the Kent Coast Electrification scheme.

The very first Class 24 to be withdrawn was in November 1967 when a fire broke out on D5051 while it was working a train of empty coal wagons in Scotland. By January 1979, only three locos remained in use.
