Developed from English Electric’s astonishing 1955 prototype, the 22 production ‘Deltics’ used powerful but lightweight Napier gunboat engines to deliver a far greater power to weight ratio than any other diesel locomotive of their time. The result was a worthy successor to the legendary LNER Pacifics and their performances on the East Coast Main Line over a 20-year career made them equally iconic. Marking the 40th anniversary of their retirement in January 1982, our retooled model is designed to accommodate two large ‘earth mover’ speakers and two smoke units for that unforgettable ‘Deltic’ effect. Other new features include a plug-and-play DCC interface, interior detail and lighting and authentic detail variations for later period Class 55s.
