GRAHAM FARISH 372-980 1:148 N SCALE BR RTC 97201 Experiment Class 24 Diesel BR Railway Technical Centre Blue & Red Livery Weathered DCC Ready

British rail established a technical centre at Derby for the scientific investigation of many aspects of interest to the railway industrry. The centre operated a number of special test trains looking into metallurgy (eg rail wear), vehicle dynamics and the dynamics of the wheel/rail interface, becoming a world-renown centre of excellence for scientific research. To power these test trains the RTC adopted several locomotives, including class 24 locomotive 24061, which received service stock number 97201 and the name Experiment along with the RTCs' blue and red paint scheme.

Retired in 1988, the sole remaining class 24 in BR service, 97201 was purchased for preservation.
