Announcement from Kernow
17/06/2016

Kernow Model Rail Centre have today announced at the Great Central Railway Model Event that they have commissioned Bachmann to produce the Class 438/Class 491 4TC unit.

In 1966 British Rail began the conversion of Mk1 loco-hauled coaches to create 28 four car Class 438/491 4TC units at British Rail Engineering Limited's York works. A further 3 three car units were converted at the same time - these later gained an additional coach to make a total of 31 four car units. The un-powered units were formed of Driving Trailer Second Open (DTSO), Trailer First Corridor (TFK), Trailer Brake Second Corridor (TBSK) and Driving Trailer Second Open (DTSO), and could be found working in multiple with 4REP EMUs and Class 33/1 Diesel Locomotives as well as Class 73s, 74s and other compatible 1951/57/63 built EMUs.

What goes into a Graham Farish model?
26/05/2016

Have you ever wondered how many parts go into making a Graham Farish model? We have taken a Graham Farish Class 101 3 car dmu and have counted all the components that make up the model and it amounts to a grand total of 458 parts!

But it's not just parts that make up a model, for example, each Class 101 body shell has over 15 different spraying and printing operations to apply the livery. A multitude of bespoke tools and moulding equipment is required in the production of the end product, with the final finishing process being an elaborate process carried out by hand.
