Better looking than a class 70 :-bd


Just about! Lol


The 68 is an upgrade on the 67, with a new power unit and made from lighter materials (the 67 has a bit of a weight issue, restricting it from lots of lines)


The strange one will always be the 70, as on the tops numbering system number 70 and above was traditionally for electric traction.


It'll be interesting to see who does a model of it 1st. The livery looks well, not sure about the face. A bit like an ugly but well dressed lady!

I don't know about ugly the more I look at it the more it grows on me. Any word on Bachmann brining out a model of her yet


Bachmann announce their products for the year in March. I'd say they'll announce the rights to do it (ala like they did with the 70) and it will come out in about 18 months time or so. That's if they choose to do it. I read that some will be delivered in Northern Belle livery too so there will be 2 liveries to do.
