Avanti West Coast, Class 390 Pendolino Train Pack
'OO' Gauge
Released: 12/06/21
DCC Ready (8 Pin)
Era 11
During the 1970s, British Railways had pursued the concept of tilting train technology for the West Coast Main Line through the Class 370 Advanced Passenger Train concept, allowing for higher speeds to be taken through curves. By minimizing lateral forces on the passengers, the tendency to slide sideways was reduced, which in turn allowed passenger comfort levels to be maintained at higher speeds. Even with the cancellation of the APT project, the idea of train tilt was still being considered in the 1980s for the InterCity 225 project, and again during the 1990s for the aborted InterCity 250 concept. In 1997, when Virgin Trains were awarded the franchise to operate the West Coast Main Line following the privatization of British Rail, it was on the proviso that new rolling stock was to be introduced, replacing the ageing Class 86/87/90 locomotives and Mark 2/3 coaches and so a £500 million order was placed with Alstom/Fiat Ferroviaria to construct fifty-four, eight-car tilting train sets, later increasing to nine, then eleven car sets. The current Pendolino fleet of 52 sets comprises 31 eleven-car sets and 21 nine-car sets and all have been transferred to Avanti West Coast, the operating name for the new West Coast Partnership between FirstGroup plc and Trenitalia UK that took over the operation of the existing West Coast Main Line services on 8 December 2019, from Virgin Trains.

DCC Sound
Era 7
The Class 24/1 locomotives were a development of the BR Sulzer Type 2 design (later Class 24/0), which had been first introduced in 1958. Built at BR’s Derby Works from 1960, the Class 24/1 diesel-electric locomotives were produced in various batches until 1961, with a total of 151 Class 24 locomotives produced by the BR workshops over this period. The batch of locomotives numbered D5133-D5150 (latterly Nos. 24133-24150), upon which this model is based, were fitted from new with a four-character train indicator headcode box above each cab and they were delivered new to the London Midland Region and North Eastern Region, where they were used as mixed traffic engines, replacing steam locomotives. Like all Class 24s, they were powered by the reliable 6LDA28-A Sulzer engine which gave an output of 1,160bhp. The design incorporated some electrical changes from the Class 24/0s, along with a reduced fuel and water tank capacity resulting in a reduction in weight, giving the locomotives a better availability. In later years, the former North Eastern batch of locomotives were sent to Scotland for use in the Edinburgh/Glasgow areas. With a lifespan of up to 18 years, these small and versatile locomotives gave excellent service in all manner of roles on both branch line and main line duties, either singly or working in multiple. Withdrawal from service began in 1968, with the final locomotive No. 24133 being retired in March 1978.
