Bachmann BR MK1 BG in Engineer's Yellow
For our second OO gauge limited edition model, we have chosen to continue the classic theme of the 1980s and early 1990s. We are proud to release our second model today at the Derby Roundhouse, and once again it has a Scottish connection which will please existing customer of our 37114. It is one of the Eastfield re-railing train tool vans, in the form of a Bachmann BR MK1 BG in engineer's yellow with black chevrons, accurately depicting number ADB 977155QRV featuring the iconic Highland terrier motifs of Glasgow Eastfield depot.
The model is accurate for the period, and faithfully represented as per our philosophy of providing the 1980s and 1990s modeller with sought after, accurate locomotives and rolling stock which they can put straight into service or renumber to something else with minimal work. In addition to this, we will be announcing another locomotive shortly which will continue the same theme, so watch this space for that release.
For those of you who have ordered our previous class 37114 Dunrobin Castle, you will have been sent advance notice of this release via email as a thank you, so you will be able to get your order in straight away on the release date so you don’t miss out. As per our class 37114, there will be no money payable up front and we will be in touch when the models arrive to arrange payment. The current expected delivery date is 4th quarter 2018/1st quarter 2019.
The estimated RRP is £47.95* + postage & packing, and all profits from this model will again be used to fund the urgent rebuilding of the clubrooms of Mickleover Model Railway Group (MMRG), and therefore keep the club and the Derby show rolling, so we’d like to thank you in advance for your continued support. We really do appreciate it! It’s a big task but things are looking bright thanks to your support.
Optional weathering is available at a cost of £10 extra. This will be done by Alex Carpenter of MMRG/Rail Express magazine, tick the box on the paper/online form when ordering if you want this option.
Artwork has been received, checked and approved in April, and things are well underway. We will have the mock up model along with sound fitted and weathered production samples of 37114 on the club stand (featuring temporary ‘diorama’ layout Meadow Lane TMD). Come along and say hello! We’ll be happy to chat about the models.
*anticipated price subject to any increase applied by the manufacturer: Bachmann Europe PLC.
