Class 20/9 No. 20901 (DRS blue with red solebar)

Limited Edition No. 7

THIS CLASS 20 LOCOMOTIVE made the TV and newspaper headlines in 1999 when it, and two classmates, powered the ‘Train for Life’ humanitarian aid train on a 2,800-mile trip from the UK to Kosovo. Later that year it was also used to haul important materials on the Kosovo system under the control of NATO. The model proved the continued popularity of DRS as a subject, especially when the loco returned home and was employed alongside the company’s fleet of Class 20/3s. Etched ‘Train for Life’ stainless steel headboards were included in the box.
