Hornby has released two new liveries for their line of British Rail ‘OO’ 1/76 0-6-0 Class 08 Shunter.
The British Railways Class 08 0-6-0 diesel electric shunter, developed from the similar LMS design, eventually became British Railways’ largest, and probably most recognised, fleet of locomotives. The Class 08 used the same English Electric EE6K 350hp power unit as the LMS designs. 996 units were built between 1952 and 1962 at BR’s workshops in Crewe, Darlington, Derby, Doncaster and Horwich and over 100 still remain in service.
