DETAILS

The first of BR's heavy Type 5 freight locomotives introduced to cope with an increase in coal traffic after the 1973 oil crisis. The first 30 class 56 locomotives were built by Electroputere in Romania under sub-contract from Brush, while the rest were constructed by BREL Doncaster (56031-115) and Crewe (56116-135).
Although they were retired by EWS in 2003, a number have been reactivated for use by freight companies such as Colas, UK Rail Leasing.
Our model is based on the alter Doncaster and Crewe variant (56070-135)
