- Detailed body with etched grilles and separately fitted handrails
- Finely detailed cast wheels
- Metal sprung buffers
- 5 pole Super creep motor with twin brass fly wheels for controlled pulling power and incredible slow running speed
- All wheel drive and pick up
- Independent directional and cab lighting
- DCC Ready with provision of an MTC 21 pin socket
- Accessory bag with optional fitted components
British Rail Class 29
* 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.
