Maybe a daft question but should I fit the large grill covers - does anyone have an idea on dates for such things?


For accuracy yes.... Flickr photos show her outshoppped with them in 1970 and still carrying them in 1976 by which time she was 40033

 

No sign of mine yet.....

Have Bachmann redesigned the pick ups on their class 40s?  They are much more visible on this model than any of my other 8 class 40s

Yep frost grills to winter 1979/80, and nameplates to at least October 1974.

 

Still waiting on mine too!

Having sent 233 on a visit to Churchdown works tonight I can see that additional wiper pick ups have been added to two axles. Top marks to Bachmann for listening... thank you

233 has now been through works ... light weathering, replacement of moulded lamp irons with etches and removal of extraneous detail that wasn’t there on this loco ? Headboard brackets .
