NEWS: Silver Fox Models to re-introduce Class 74

e3390547-afb2-474d-80c1-aab1b211f1a6

Silver Fox Models is to re-release models of its OO gauge Class 74 Bo-Bo Electro-Diesel locomotive in RTR and kit form. The RTR models feature cast resin bodyshell with flush glazing, cast resin bogie sideframes and ancillary parts. Its kit version is supplied with transfers, detailed instructions and is designed to be used on a Hornby Class 90 chassis.

Of the twenty-four BR Crewe-built Class 71s, ten were deemed surplus to requirements in 1964, withdrawn and placed in storage. In 1967, they were brought out of storage, shipped to Crewe and rebuilt as Class 74, a more-powerful version of the Class 73 which had impressed BR's Southern Region. The Class 74s subsequently worked a variety of routes across the Southern Region for the best part of a decade.

Class 74 SIlver Fox Models

RTR models are painted BR blue with full yellow warning panel and are numbered upon request. For current prices and availability, visit its website www.silverfoxmodels.co.uk
