Manufacturer description

The first diesel railcar was introduced by the GWR in 1933. The innovation was to prove extremely successful and they continued in operation well into the 1960s when their use was eclipsed by the introduction of the BR first generation DMUs. The railcar’s art deco air smoothed styling has lead to their nickname of `Flying Banana’ although later variants were produced to a more angular style. In all 38 GWR diesel railcars were produced from 1933 to 1942 at three different sites with three surviving into preservation.

 

The Dapol Steamlined Rail Car includes the following features:

 

• Accurately moulded body and accurately applied livery and decoration • Finely detailed cast wheels • Metal sprung buffers • 5 pole Super creep motor for superbly controllable slow running speed • All wheel drive and pick up • Directional lights • Interior lighting • DCC Ready with provision for a 21 pin decoder
