At the launch of its 2019 Bachmann Branchline and Graham Farish catalogues in London on January 14 (see page 12) Bachmann Europe Plc announced a growing input into its 009-scale range with new tooling for a Baguley-Drewry 70hp diesel locomotive and four different van and wagon types.

The diminutive Baguley-Drewry diesel locomotives were built in the early 1980s to augment the existing fleet of elderly locomotives on the network of narrow-gauge lines operated by the Royal Navy’s Armaments Depot, working trains carrying explosives and other sundries between the standard-gauge exchange sheds and the various hidden storage locations.

A model of a rebuilt open wagon like this one seen at the Statfold Barn Railway will complement the existing 009 range of bogie wagons and vans.
