Model Note

Class 58 Diesel

Type: Review

Note: I was lucky enough to receive this model - 58001 - from a friend and it is a nice sturdy model, with that eye-catching grey livery. The loco had no problems running forward and reverse, and that with it un-lubricated after sitting in storage for a number of years..
I can highly recommend this workhorse and it looks great on any layout.
