Product summary

Ffestiniog Railway Double Fairlie 'Earl of Merioneth’ FR Lined Green in OO9 gauge by Bachmann
Brand: Bachmann

Ffestiniog Railway Double Fairlie 'Earl of Merione

Ffestiniog Railway Double Fairlie 'Earl of Merioneth’ FR Lined Green in OO9 gauge by Bachmann follows in the footsteps of the award winning Baldwin 10-12-D by Bachmann Narrow Gauge. 

The Double Fairlie is an icon of the Narrow Gauge world and this instantly recognisable locomotive is now available in OO9 scale for the first time. 

The Bachmann 'Earl of Merioneth’ model incorporates a high level of detail, with tooling designed to accommodate the detail variants seen on the real locomotives in order to produce a model of the highest fidelity, which is brought to life by the exquisite livery application that combines Ffestiniog Railway-specification colours with authentic lining, crests and plates.

The precision moulded bodies are adorned with numerous individual components, including the real brass handrails and the metal tank filler cap rings, along with fine mouldings for parts such as the steam fountain, cab controls and tallow cups. 

The mechanism is similarly impressive with a twin shaft coreless motor, fitted with twin flywheels, driving both bogies, all-wheel electrical pick up and separate metal bearings fitted to each axle. 

Provision for DCC is a given and the model incorporates a Next18 DCC decoder socket, easily accessed via a removable panel on the underside of the model, plus pre-fitted speakers on all versions – or why not opt for a SOUND FITTED model and really bring your layout to life!

The Sound fitted version is equally at home on a DC analogue layout and will still bring an authentic sound to your layout.
