GE­ORGE DENT and BEN ANDO pro­vide the low­down on what RTR mod­els are avail­able for a sec­tori­sa­tion fleet and how they can be im­proved.

Model Rail (UK) - - Railreight at 30 -

The buoy­ancy of the ready-to-run diesel and elec­tric out­line mar­ket is re­flected in the fact that of the many classes to wear the ‘triple grey’ Rail­freight scheme, all are avail­able in model form. How­ever, not all have been of­fered in this liv­ery op­tion, so a re­paint­ing job may be re­quired. Fur­ther­more, some mod­els are not cur­rently in pro­duc­tion (or are due to be su­per­seded with all-new ver­sions).

Be­ing the only lo­co­mo­tive class to re­ceive all six sub-sec­tor schemes, the Class 37 makes for an es­sen­tial ad­di­tion to a late BR freight fleet.
