Announced as part of Bachmanns' Winter British Railway Announcements they are delighted to bring you this Class 117 3-Car DMU in BR Green (Speed Whiskers) livery. With a wealth of individually controllable lighting features, this model is also SOUND FITTED for a fully authentic experience!

Bachmann has designed the Branchline models of the Class 117 and its sibling, the single-car Class 121, from the rails-up, to achieve a new standard in fidelity to prototype in OO scale DMUs. The model is equipped with a low profile, underfloor driveline that permits reproduction of an unprecedented level of interior detail, with no intrusion from the motor.
