Hi,

This is one of my recent projects: the English Electric Diesel Locomotive Class 1400 of CP (Portuguese Railways) in the standart orange/brown colour scheme, built for a customer.
Portugal ordered a total of 50 Diesel Class 1400 locomotives from English Electric.
The first bath of 10 locomotives where built in the United Kingdom and arrived in Portugal in 1967. The remaining locomotives where built in Portugal.
Today the EE 1400 Diesel locomotives also operates as shunters / switchers.

The Micromodel resin cast body shell is produced to be used with the Athearn SW-1000/1500 powertrain kit.
























Hope you like!

Thanks.
Regards,
Ayala Botto

That has made up into a very nice model Ayala. I like the look of that Athearn power train, twin flywheels, very nice. That must be a very smooth runner.
