Unfortunately this project has been indefinitely postponed.

Rapido Trains UK is delighted to announce its first ‘OO’ gauge diesel-outline locomotive: the Drewry 204hp 0-6-0DM, better known as Class 04.

This is one of the few BR diesel classes not yet produced to contemporary standards in ‘OO’ and our new model is expected to boast all those features that modellers now demand, including lights, ‘plug & play’ DCC interface and factory-fitted sound-speaker.

This will be a very complicated project, with many different detail options. Over the next few years, we plan to produce the first batch of ‘04s’ with 3ft 3 1/2in wheels and original cab design, the main production batch with 3ft 6in wheels and cab with larger windows as well as the Southern Region version too. Skirted and non-skirted options will also be available.


The project is at a very early stage and liveries and prices are yet to be confirmed. However, development work is underway and we have already undertaken a photographic survey of D2298, courtesy of the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre.
