Class 25/2 BR Blue – Bodyside TOPS
SLW 2533B: 25216 (Western Region)
£185.00 – £345.00
With the BR Blue Class 25s being snapped-up at an incredible rate, we are pleased to add another example to the range. Providing a number of fresh detail differences, No. 25216, represents a vacuum-braked Western Region loco from the mid-1970s. This Plymouth Laira-based machine is a Class 25/2 with the original mechanical speedometer. It carries a bodyside number position indicating its last major overhaul was at Glasgow St Rollox. It performed a mixed traffic role in the Deep South West encompassing freight, parcels and local passenger workings. It is offered with headcodes set to ‘0000’ after the cessation of loco-based train reporting in 1976. It later moved to Crewe at the end of the decade. Expected late 2022.
