Product information

Class 90 as No. 90004 ‘City of Glasgow’ in original Virgin Trains livery.

Look no further than the Branchline Class 90 if you’re searching for the pinnacle in British OO scale Electric locomotives. Combining a highly accurate and detailed body shell with an authentic chassis and bogies – each featuring a wealth of separately fitted detail – the Branchline Class 90 captures the distinctive shape and character of the real locomotives to a tee. Add to this the multiple lighting functions and their realistic operations, such as the Day or Night mode for the directional lighting and the cab lights that illuminate only in the direction of travel and when the model is stationary, and its easy to see why this model is the complete package. What’s more, when used on DCC the Pantograph, which itself is a fine reproduction featuring metal components, can be operated remotely via the built-in servo motor, meaning you can raise and lower this characteristic feature at any time, without having to intervene by hand. For the ultimate experience opt for one of our SOUND FITTED models which offers authentic sound effects and is pre-configured for DCC operation of the motorised pantograph.
