Heljan Finescale O Gauge Class 53 Diesel No.1200, DCC Sound

1 item left

New in 1961 from Brush Works Loughborough as D0280 and named 'Falcon', this prototype  loco had a chequered existence but was eventually taken in to BR service in 1970 and numbered '1200'.  It spent much of its life from then in the Bristol and South Wales areas before withdrawal in 1975.   This is a superb model of the type in the increasingly rare BR Blue livery.  It is fitted with DCC sound including a large 40mm speaker giving excellent tone.
