CJM Class 59
Built between 1985 and 1995, the General Motors class 59 heralded a marked change in British rail freight haulage. In the same way, 1997 saw the biggest leap forward in British ‘N’ gauge with the introduction of CJM’s Class 59. This was the model that CJM had promised for many years and its arrival caused a storm of interest and demand. The press seemed lost for words but settled on ‘PERFECTION’.
GBRf bring back 59003 from Germany and rebuild her!
Promised earlier this year, with the prototype spec finalised CJM is pleased to announce this model is now offered in the spectacular GBRf livery. Great care has been taken to incorporate as many of subtle differences as possible with the correct livery, new LED style lights, window frames and rectangular buffers, even the silencer has been weathered and contrasts with the ex works finish of the new livery!
Available in standard and super detailed versions.
This particular launch model was commissioned last Autumn with a second man in the cab and two empty seats in the rear cab. (this is an extra cost option)
In all areas, performance, detail and finish this one takes the crown and leaves no one in any doubt that N gauge has become very serious. Every conceivable detail, from rivets to pipes, cab interiors to unequal axle spacing, is there! Now available with driver/second man and optional super detailed buffer beam with scale coupling and air pipes at one end. From 2005 all models feature body mounted couplers and end plates with drivers as standard. An optional super detailed buffer beam with scale coupling and air pipes at one end is available.
All the liveries that have graced the real class 59 are available from CJM models. Numbers and names are available as appropriate. As always, please ring to discuss your requirements.
