Product Code: 2D-004-008D
Dapol Class 56 (Doncaster Built) Construction Livery 56056 DCC Fitted. (British N-Gauge, 1:148) The British Rail Class 56 is a type of Co-Co locomotive designed for heavy freight work and was introduced between 1976 and 1983. In all, 135 Class 56ís were built, the first 30 by Electroputers in Romania, but due to poor quality of construction the remainder were built by BREL at theirDoncaster and Crewe works. The Class 56 was considered to be a successful locomotive and had a long service life, however performance and maintenance costs savings made from the deployment of the new imported Class 66 resulted in most of the fleet of Class 56ís being decommissioned or sold on by 2006. 7 Class 56ís are currently preserved including Frank Hornby at Barrow Hill.
