Classic UK Minitrix Models - Hermes
The Class 42 locos are ugly looking brutes, in my opinion. At first glance, I thought that they were similar in construction to the Class 27 models but they are most definitely not. The Class 42 is slightly longer, has a completely different chassis, the bogies are different and the electrics are arranged differently.
The Class 42 was marketed by Hornby as N206 - D823 'Hermes' in British Rail Blue as shown above. A later model was marketed as N208 - D825 'Intrepid' in Green.
Many thanks to Jeremy for his photo from his own Minitrix Collection.
