A limited edition Class 37/0 has been commissioned to help fund a new clubroom for the model railway group.
IN a novel piece of fundraising, the Mickleover Model Railway Group has commissioned Bachmann to produce a limited edition Class 37 in ‘OO’ gauge, the proceeds from which will help to pay for a new clubroom. The group, which organises the Derby exhibition, is currently housed in a pre-fabricated building but this is now in poor condition and needs to be replaced.
The exclusive model will portray Inverness’
No. 37114 Dunrobin Castle in BR large logo blue with Highland stag emblems, a livery that has long been overdue for production on the current Class 37/0 tooling. This will be priced £149.99 and is expected to be released in late 2017 or early 2018. As usual, it is limited to 512 examples and will feature the correct combination of body features, while etched nameplates from Shawplan will be included.
Reservations were opened at the Derby show at the beginning of May with strong interest shown throughout the weekend and can now be made online at the club’s website www.mmrg.org.uk
