Bachmann to produce OO scale Class 205 for Kernow Model Rail Centre

Bachmann Europe Plc today announced that it is to produce a OO scale model of a Class 205 diesel multiple unit for Kernow Model Rail Centre in Camborne, Cornwall.

These unique units operated for over 40 years on a great number of services across the BR Southern Region, travelling to London on a daily basis from lines such as the Uckfield branch which were not part of the Southern Region’s extensive electrified network, thus allowing a through service to be maintained.

David Haarhaus, Sales and Marketing Manager said “Following on from our great success in the recent Model of the Year awards. We are delighted to be given the opportunity to produce this popular prototype in OO scale. We have gained a lot of experience when developing our Southern EMU models and we will use this knowledge to design a high quality model that this interesting subject deserves. Our all new Branchline models will incorporate highly detailed interiors and under frames, interior lighting and accommodation for Digital sound.”

The Branchline Class 205 DEMU’s are expected to be available in 2011. For further details on livery, availability or any other enquiry, please visit
