TYPE 4 MAIN LINE LOCOMOTIVES (Class 40 to Class 43)

Class 40


40001 (Lima) heads through Wibdenshaw with a northbound freightliner train.

The Bradford Forster Square to Manchester Red Bank parcels at Wibdenshaw behind 40128 (Lima).


40 129 is based on the Lima product. After some adjustments to the pony-wheel set-ups this loco (and stablemate 40 118) gave stirling service during the Alexandra Palace appearance of Wibdenshaw. Re-inspired by this improved road-holding, plans to add etched fan grills to these two models are now progressing, and work on a third example has resumed.

Canada Road - 40 179 pictured in progress OMWB many months ago but now finally completed. The Class 40 is modelled as it would have appeared after a run through the washer plant in 1975 when shedded at Healey Mills. Based on the old Lima ‘OO’ product, frost and fan grill details have been added from the Extreme Etchings range. The conversion to EM has made use of Ultrascale wheelsets, with several extra pick-ups added using 0,45 nickel silver wire (Lima).

Class 42/43 (WARSHIP)


The re-work of Mainline Warship class 821 ‘Greyhound’. The loco is pictured with the Bachmann chassis and etched fan grills installed. The EM wheelsets are by Ultrascale, and really look the part next to the re-spaced brake gear. With much improved running qualities, this model should now see more frequent use on Canada Road.

Steve Harrod is normally associated with gauge 1 models for his 'Worcester Road' layout, but has spent time on some 4mm scale diesel hydraulics. Here's a Bachmann Warship model of D861 Vigilant, with extra detailing and weathering (Bachmann).
