Description

This is a Bachmann 31-660DB Class 47 Diesel Locomotive No.47628 Sir Daniel Gooch in Great Western Lined Green and is a Sales Area Exclusive for the Western Region. The model is depicted in its 1985 – 1989 livery when it was being used widely across the network on InterCity passenger and parcels duties, often appearing on special trains and at BR Depot Open Days.

The locomotive was built at Crewe Works in February 1965 and first entered traffic carrying number D1663. It gained its name 'Sir Daniel Gooch' on 31st December 1973 after the first Chief Mechanical Engineer of the Great Western Railway 1837 – 1864 who went on to become its Chairman from 1865 until his death in 1889 (aged 73). The locomotive lost its nameplates for a short period in 1984 before being renumbered to 47628 on 18th January 1985 following repainting into Great Western Railway lined green livery, along with three other Class 47s, to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the opening of the Great Western Railway in 1835. In January 1990 it again lost its nameplates and after a period carrying the InterCity Mainline livery, it passed into service with Rail Express Systems. The locomotive was withdrawn from traffic on 31st January 2006 carrying the RES livery before being cut up at Ron Hull, Rotherham.

This model is a Limited Edition of 504 pieces.
