Bachmann 32-462 Class 170 Turbostar DMU ‘ONE’ Livery
The model has working head/tail lights but sadly isn’t DCC ready so any DCC decoders will have to be hardwired into the model. The model has a five pole motor with twin flywheels, all wheel drive & all wheel power pickups. Couplings are the small removable euro lock & loop type with NEM pockets. The motor is located in the centre car with the driving trailers being non-driven. The driving cars have power pickups for the head & tail lighting.
Other features include finely detailed parts, brass etched grills, flush ribbon glazing, windscreen wipers, under chassis details, interior details, fine profile wheels. Separate fans are located under some of the roof vent grills. A heavy diecast chassis helps to give good traction so no traction tires are needed.
The model is still good for its age but due for an upgrade shortly by Bachmann.
