Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1995 In their earlier days, these locomotives, of which there were 327 built, had the classification code of Type 2 diesels and were used for passenger and freight work in all parts of Britain. The Hornby model represents the locomotive in its early days and has a Type 5 ringfield motor.
1996 Before they were called 25s this class of locomotive were given the equally imaginative name of Type 2. 327 were built and used to pull goods and passenger trains throughout the UK. The Hornby example shows the 25 in the livery of its formative days with the power being provided by a ringfield motor.
1997 First they were named Type 2 locomotives, then they became Class 25. Some 327 were built to pull goods and passenger trains throughout the UK between 1961 and 1978. The model bears the livery of the early 1960s. It is powered by a ringfield motor.
