32-725WDS Bachmann Class 66 Diesel Locomotive number 66 062 in Euro Cargo Rail livery.
This model features all-wheel drive, directional LED lights, cab lights, sprung buffers and a wealth of fine detail. Close attention has been paid to the plethora of authentic small decoration on the body and cabside. Period of operation is current.
Euro Cargo Rail was founded by EWS to operate open access freight trains in France. Now part of DB Schenker, the company employs up to 60 modified EWS Class 66/0s outside the UK, although the locomotives return as required for maintenance and to bolster the DBS British fleet at busy periods. ECR branded Class 66s have become a common sight, and can be identified by the various additional markings and data panels required to run on the French network. Bachmann has modified the front skirt tooling to incorporate the characteristic snowploughs – a feature exclusive to this limited edition model. Euro Cargo Rail branding is produced under licence from DB Schenker.
Limited edition of 250, these models produced exclusively for Model Rail by Bachmann.
Fitted with DCC Digital Sound
* Class names often change over the lifespan of a locomotive, so this is not necessarily the class name used by the operator in the period modelled.
