In the Feb. / March 09 Hornby Collectors Club mag they have an article on the repainted EWS / DB Schenker Class 60 No 60074. in the colours of The Teenage Cancer Trust.
Rail Express have commissioned a limited run of 1100 models of the loco .... the charity will benefit financially from the sales.
I like the model for three reasons :-
It will help a worthy charity
It is a striking model in it's bright blue livery
It will help show, if just a little, that we are a group of caring men & women who are not just 'playing with model trains'.
The real item has been out & about since this time last year and they also have a photo of it at work. Pity about the 'worn' buffers.
With DB Schenker being a German company I would have thought they may have given their 'first' loco SS buffers :-)
