BACHMANN 32-753DS 1:76 OO SCALE Freightliner 57007 Freightliner Bond Class 57 Co-Co Freightliner Green with DCC & Sound

Seeking locomotives with improved performance and reliability the privatised Freightliner company sought to re-engineer their existing class 47 locomotives. Rebuilt by the original builders, Brush of Loughborough, the overhauled bodyshells were equiped with new Electro-Motive 12-cylinder 645 series engines, delivering 2,500bhp coupled to overhauled alternators recovered from class 56 locomotives. The robust and reliable class 47 traction motor were retaind, with updated electrical and control systems to improve reliability. Freightliner later decided to invest in new class 66 and 70 locomotives, but the 57s have found new homes with DRS and West Coast Railways.

A highly detailed model of the early build Freightliner series of class 57 locomotives which retained many of the characteristic features of the original class 47 bodyshell. Finished as 57007 Freightliner Bond in the initial Freightliner green livery. Bachmanns' class 57 model features a heavy diecast chassis accomdating a centrally mounted motor with drive to all six axles. The bodyshell tooling has been designed to accomodate several of the detail changes made during the class 57 rebuild programme, these Freightliner locomotives retaining the class 47 Serck automatically adjusting radiator louvres.
