Product Number:



Class 158 is one of British Rail’s most successful second generation Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs); first introduced in 1989, all but one of the original units remain in traffic to this day. This all-new Graham Farish model follows in the footsteps of the brand’s award winning Class 319 Electric Multiple Unit and captures this iconic prototype to a tee.

Driven by the low-level drive mechanism, each vehicle sports uninterrupted views of the interior which is fitted out with tables, chairs and even metal luggage racks – made visible thanks to the saloon lighting. The inter-vehicle coupling system ensure that the two vehicles work together in harmony and enables the use of a single decoder for DCC operation. This SOUND FITTED model comes pre-fitted with a DCC sound decoder, providing realistic sound effects when used on both analogue control and DCC straight out of the box.
