Class 40

A total of 200 of these locomotives were built between 1958 and 1962. Fitted with 2,000hp English Electric engines they were intended for express passenger work and were provided with steam-heat boilers for the purpose. They were to be found in many areas of the country during the 1960s. The locomotives were built with, or modified to have, a number of different features for train reporting. These different nose features are included in the models which will be included in TC3. This locomotive was built by Rob Hill (Lielestosbrat).
