Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1977 Fitted with Magnadhesion.
1978 The 308 English Electric built class 37 locomotives were originally introduced as early as 1961 onto the Eastern and western regions of BR where they still perform a wide variety of tasks ranging from fast passenger to merry-go-round duties on coal trains between collieries and power stations. The Hornby model has been enhanced by the incorporation of the Silver Seal Ringfield motor mounted in a new heavy chassis and runs smoothly on its traction tyres.
