The Class 70 Diesel Locomotive returns to the Bachmann Branchline range in the stunning yellow, orange and black colour scheme of Colas Rail Freight. Carrying the running number 70811, this locomotive sports the air intake modifications undertaken after the first Class 70s were delivered to Freightliner, but which were incorporated into the locomotives ordered by Colas as they were built – the distinguishing feature of these modifications being the air boxes mounted prominently on each side of the body, below the cooler fans.

This Bachmann Branchline model captures the unique looks of the Class 70 to a tee and is adorned with numerous separately fitted detail parts, including dozens of metal handrails fitted around the cabs and to the bodyside panels. The vibrant livery really brings the model to life, the striking tri-colour scheme is littered with logos and safety warnings, and we’ve spared no expense in capturing this stunning livery and the myriad associated printed details to bring this current day locomotive to your model railway.
