Hornby Class 121

Bocaj

 

Version

Class 121 DMU, NSE Livery. Made in China, Product code R2508A

 

Appearance

The livery paint is spot on and lovely. The NSE signs are perfect and are in the correct position.

 

Detail

It comes with nice window wipers fitted and has a destination sign on one end of one of the cabs, in this case it is Oxford. It has big buffers which are unfortunately not sprung. The couplings are the big chunky type which a lot of modellers don't like. It did not come with any extra details to fit.

 

Performance

The locomotive runs smoothly and can get over points fine. It only has to pull itself so it can pull the correct load.

 

Maintenance

Just keep it in good condition by servicing it well and regularly. The decoder was one of the easiest to fit as there is lots of room in the chassis.

 

Comments

Overall a good, cheap, model.

 

Overall ranking

7/10
