At the World of Railways virtual exhibition, KR Models revealed they are inviting expressions of interest in a OO gauge model of Clayton DHP1.
The Clayton DHP1 was a demonstrator ordered by Rolls Royce to showcase their engines and hydraulic transmission, with help from Col Fell of 10100 Fell Loco fame.
Clayton modified the Class 17 drawings to suit the requirement as they were designed around the same time, although the 17 was about 4 feet longer, but the general layout was identical, testing didn't go to plan and it was soon relegated to works shunter for the final 2 Class 17's being built (the 2 with Rolls Royce engines).
- 21-pin DCC socket with easy access Directional LED Lighting
- Heavy die-cast metal chassis with central motor and flywheels giving a powerful performance
- Separately fitted wire handrails and sandpipes
- Etched grilles
- Sprung buffers
- Flush glazing
- Available in OO Gauge. DCC Ready (£165.00), and DCC Sound TBC.
