A perfect 00 gauge locomotive developed by “Hornby Model Railways” as part of their Super Detailed series.

The British Rail (BR) Class 50 diesel locomotives were built by English Electric at their Vulcan Foundry Works plant in Newton-le-Willows between 1967 and 1968. These locomotives were designed to haul express passenger trains at 100 mph on the, then non-electrified, section of the West Coast Main Line between Crewe and Scotland.

They were originally hired from English Electric Leasing, and were eventually purchased outright by BR around 1973. Before gaining their 50xxx TOPS numbers these locomotives were known as English Electric Type 4s and numbered in the D4xx series. The class were nicknamed “Hoovers”(sometimes shortened to “Vacs”) by rail enthusiasts because of the distinctive sound made by the inertial air-filters originally fitted.

This Locomotive does not and has not suffer from metal fatigue (Mazak Rot), Complete with paperwork, Sealed detail Pack and Original Box and Sleeve..
