This collectors pack contains a class 37/4 locomotive No. 37558 ‘Avro Vulcan XH558’, a 1:144 scale Vulcan in original ‘anti-flash’ white colour scheme, a 1:144 scale Vulcan in final camouflage colour scheme, a resin reproduction of the English Electric ‘Vulcan Works’ locomotive works plate, a resin reproduction of the Avro airframe identification plate from XH558 and a set of original RAF Training Board card reproductions.
2007 saw the return to the skies of the only air-worthy Vulcan Bomber following two years of restoration by the Vulcan to the Sky Trust. XH558 delighted aviation enthusiasts at air displays around the country before being permanently grounded at the end of 2015. In 2016 a unique relationship was formed between DRS and the Trust, which culminated in the naming of a Class 37 locomotive (37424 built at the Vulcan Foundry in Newton-le-Willows by English Electric) as 37558 ‘Avro Vulcan XH558’.
To celebrate the synergy between these two outstanding examples of British innovation and engineering prowess from the late 1950’s, Bachmann are proud to produce this special collector’s edition pack which will be sure to delight railway and aviation enthusiasts alike.
