Your in luck..

I believe the flyer details the first three models to be made, including a Virgin Trains..

A Freightliner Grey and Green pair would be good for a liner train... :D

Heljan have some CAD images of the class 86 on their website.

Here's the link:-

Well worth a look I think.

I cannot believe that there have been no posts on this thread since my one submitted last June!!!!!

A lot of correspondance on another forum recently - http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index. ... -class-86/ which you may possibly find interesting.

Particularly with Bachmann's announcement yesterday of a Class 85.
