Class 42 Locomotive

Introduced in 1958 and based on the German Deutsche Bundesbahn, these were one of the early ventrues into diesel-hydraulics.

The bogies are unusual in as much that there are no axle boxes.

The model carries the motor gear wheel assembly within two plates that pivot in a cast aluminium body with rubber suspension discs.
