Graham Farish Class 158 paint samples arrive - Exclusive close-up look
On display at the Warley International Model Railway Exhibition 2022 at the Bachmann Europe stand were decoration samples for the new tool Graham Farish N Gauge Class 158 DMU.
N Gauge News had the opportunity to photograph the samples, which comprised the two announced liveries of Regional Railways and Scotrail 'saltire'.
371-850 Class 158 2-Car DMU 158849 BR Regional Railways
371-851 Class 158 2-Car DMU 158711 ScotRail Saltire
The new Class 158 will feature the features found on all modern Farish models, including coreless motor, Next18 decoder socket, pre-fitted speaker for DCC sound and interior lighting. A low profile chassis design allows for an unobstructed saloon in both coaches, with seat and table detail clearly present in both coaches.
Working couplings are fitted at the outer ends to allow multiple working, whilst a conductive coupling between the coaches provides for all wheel pickup and means only one decoder is required for DCC users.
Release date is currently expected to be Q3/Q4 2023
Our sincere thanks to Bachmann Europe for allowing NGN to photograph the samples.
