The class 58 is through EFE and is a rebadged Heljan model, built by Heljan to be distributed through EFE.

 

A class 56 is probably not on the cards in the short term unless someone else fancies taking on Hornby with a very high quality model.

 

Any challenge to the Hornby model will be met in the same manner other duplicates have been met by Hornby, agressively.

Seen now that Bachmann has produced a oo gauge British Rail class 58 railfreight livery, could they produce a class 56 diesel locomotive in BR blue? I feel this could be far more superior than the Hornby model. 

In what way do you see the Hornby model being deficient? That's not a poke im genuinely interested.

But they are sunken on the real thing.....granted not as much as the Hornby one but short of halving the thickness of the bodyshell what could they do?

Every photo here shows them flush with the top of the roof with a slightly raised surround. http://www.docbrown.info/docspics/ArchiveSteam/lococlass56.htm
