CIE Livery R.758 Hornby

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

I have come across a CIE Orange Livery Hymec Diesel Locomotive Model  and two carriages. When I search on line this appears to be an R.768 but mine reads R.758 on the base. I thought at first it was my eyes but no it's definitely R.758. Anyone know if this  is a different model.

My understanding is that R758 was the original British Railways model of the Hymek while R768 was used to the Irish "variant".

If my memory is correct this one was part of the 'Slainte Express' train set.  The BR blue one came as part of a container train set complete with an operating container crane.
