Bachmann Europe Plc has highlighted identified a small number of its limited-edition 'Pride of Britain' Train Packs remaining, which includes a Capt. Tom Moore Class 66 in GBRf’s ‘Thank You NHS’ livery and two model aircraft. The aircraft included in the pack depict the two planes that participated in the flypast for Captain Tom’s 100th birthday.

Not only does our 'Pride of Britain' Train Pack celebrate Captain Tom Moore and his fundraising achievements ahead of his 100th birthday, but it also honours the outstanding efforts of the NHS and all key workers during the Covid-19 pandemic."
Three packs are available, each including a 66731 Capt. Tom Moore in GB Railfreight’s ‘Thank You NHS’ livery and two Easy Model 1:72 scale aircraft – Hurricane LF363 and Spitfire MK356. The three packs available are: (371-396K) N scale, (32-980K) OO scale, (32-980KSF) OO scale sound-fitted.
