History

The Class 87 locomotive design resulted from a requirement for a more powerful mixed traffic electrical locomotive by British Rail, needed to cope with the route gradients of the West Coast Main Line between Weaver Junction and Glasgow. Electrification had been newly authorised over this section in 1970 and was scheduled for completion by May 1974, leaving little time to design a completely new locomotive from scratch and so British Rail decided to base the new class on the existing Class 86 locomotives.

Other info:

This locomotive is DCC ready, so will work on your normal analogue model railway. An 8 pin chip is require to convert this loco to DCC, available here.

**In the event that you cancel. If we have to cancel due to stock limitations or any other reason beyond our control, the £20 will be refunded via the payment method you paid with.
