The Class 52 diesel hydraulic locomotive was introduced by the BR Western Region in 1962 to provide high speed passenger and freight services.
Twin Maybach engines were fitted, driving a Voith 3 speed hydraulic transmission. This had the added advantage that the locomotive could still run if one engine failed.
Problems with the transmission however, meant that the locomotive experienced very high maintenance and operating costs, and could only achieve the acclaimed 90MPH top speed under certain circumstances. In the end these disadvantages meant that the class was replaced in 1977 with the more efficient and faster Class 50s and Class 43 HSTs.
The classic elegant design with sweeping curves and unmistakable presence has always meant that this locomotive has been a firm favourite with Diesel aficionados.

Dapol have managed to capture this character through detailed laser scans and in-depth collaborative research with fellow modellers.
The model features:

  • Detailed body with etched fan grills and separately fitted hand rails
  • Finely detailed and cast wheels
  • Superb weathered finish
  • 5 pole Super Creep Motor for controlled pulling power and fine slow speed running
  • Directional light 
  • DCC ready with provision for a 6 pin decoder
  • Accessory bag with optional fitted components
  • Fitted etched brass name and number plates
  • Magnetic and traditional couplers supplied
