YEAR INFORMATION
2002 Due to the work expected of this class, seeing a clean example is extremely rare and it is more common to see one as depicted in the Hornby model shown above. What therefore could be more authentic than a ‘dirty’ 56 hauling a train of similarly weathered MGR's on a modeller’s layout? Powered by a ringfield motor.
