Kernow Model Rail Centre (KMRC) has received the first engineering prototype (EP) samples of its forthcoming exclusive ‘OO’ gauge Bulleid 1-Co-Co-1 diesel locomotive for evaluation.
First announced in 2010, tooling of the model commenced earlier this year following completion of CAD drawings during December. The first EP samples have been supplied decorated by the factory, while refinements and fine details have yet to be added.
The first batch of models will appear as 10201 in BR black with early crests (Cat No. K2701) and 10202 in BR black with early crests (K2702). Two versions of 10203 will subsequently follow finished in BR black with early crests (K2703) and BR green with late crests (K2704).
1,250 of each model will be produced, with prices set at £169.99. Delivery is anticipated for August 2017.
