Class 158 / 159

The class 158 / 159 DMU came to Graham Farish in 1992 and 1994/5 respectively. The chassis design was a departure from previous models, with a drive coil instead of a shaft. The brass pinion gear was dispensed with and the drive coil meshed with a cog gear in the bogie tower. This enabled quite smooth running. The 158 / 159 was only really released in two liveries, Regional Railways and Network Southeast respectively. A livery was made for the Thai Railways, but quantities are unknown. Bachmann released various liveries shortly after the takeover.
