Eight fantastic Class 24 variants for your approval. Move cursor over the locos for a closer look.

A) British Rail blue (with small yellow warning panels)

An interesting and rare transition-era livery, dating from the late-1960s and featuring pre-TOPs numbering on a blue locomotive. It is understood that only two locomotives gained this colour scheme.
Detail combination: Production body, Front end doors, Later exhaust, Boiler fitted, Solebar fairings, SKF axleboxes.
Running number example(s): D5021, D5026
Notes/Period: These two locomotives were amongst the large allocation belonging to the London Midland Region’s Stoke-on-trent Division which also encompassed Crewe and provided traction throughout the North West.

B) British Railways two-tone green (with sYWP)

Providing a welcome variation to the standard but somewhat plain green livery, a small batch of six locomotives were repainted with the mid-level Sherwood green band, as part of their overhaul at Derby Works, during 1965.
Detail combination: Production body, Front end doors, Later exhaust, Boiler fitted, Solebar fairings, SKF axleboxes.
Running number example(s): D5040, D5053.
Notes/Period: Majority saw widespread use on the Great Eastern and Great Northern in the mid to late-1960s before being dispersed to the London Midland and Scottish Regions. Answers the call for an Eastern Region machine.

C) British Rail blue (full yellow ends) Glasgow Works front

Scottish locomotives are always popular and it is often forgotten that many ‘skinhead’ machines were based north of the border. From the early 1970s, Glasgow Works plated over the front doors in a distinctive style.
Detail combination: Production body, Plated front (Glasgow style), Later exhaust, Boiler fitted, Exposed solebars, SKF axleboxes.
Running number example(s):  24009, 5099
Notes/Period: A great variation for those who model the BR blue period that also provides a base model that is suitable for conversion to the majority of the Tyne Dock locos in their later blue years.

D) British Rail Research DepT (red/blue with white lining)

Arguably the best-known Class 24, the former No. 24061 had a second life as motive power for Derby Railway Technical Centre’s test trains. It received its eye-catching red and blue livery and name in 1980.
Detail combination: Production body, Front end doors, Later exhaust, Boiler fitted, Exposed solebars, SKF axleboxes.
Running number: 97201 Experiment
Notes/Period: Widely-travelled throughout the 1980s, including numerous open day visits, before being preserved on the NYMR. Has been a popular subject before, but SLW will produce the most accurate model to date.

E) British Railways green (with sYWP)

A common combination, representing a Crewe-built machine following the adoption of warning panels. Without the chromed radiator and air intake grille surrounds that were a feature of the previous Darlington release.
Detail combination: Production body, Front end doors, Original exhaust, Boiler fitted, Solebar fairings, SKF axleboxes.
Running number example(s):  D5082, D5083
Notes/Period: Probably the most prolific livery in the mid-1960s. Inclusion of free CONDOR headboards as a special extra, since these locos were recorded working this early non-stop container service.

F) British Railways green (full yellow ends/TOPS numbers)

Running number example(s):  24090, 24092
Notes/Period: The suggested locos were allocated to Glasgow Eastfield and Crewe Diesel during the period.
