CJM Class 89
Introduced to the model world in 1994, CJM’s class 89 set the standard and received critical acclaim! Since then the model has been upgraded and now, like all CJM locomotives, incorporates CJM’s own ‘Saturn series chassis’ ensuring that the model maintains its reputation. In 2003 flush glazing was added and for 2004 improvements to the pantograph ‘well’ have been made as seen below.
The prototype has had a chequered career, having appeared in three liveries and enjoying a period in private ownership. The unique locomotive was refurbished by Brush Traction and saw daily use on the East Coast mainline wearing the colours of GNER and looking very striking.
