Hornby R2988, 'Brighton Belle Pullman' 2 car set (1967) in Pullman Blue and grey,

DCC Ready 8pin Socket/Plug provided.

Additional Brighton Belle Pullman coaches will be available to complete the train.The Brighton Belle was a named train which operated between London Victoria and Brighton and was the first electric all Pullman service in the World. The service commenced in June 1934 and continued until withdrawal in April 1972, however the service was suspended during the Second World War. There were three 5 car units designated 5BEL which were specially built for the service and were able to travel in 60 minutes the 51 miles between London and Brighton without stopping. Recently under the patronage of The Transport Trust a group was formed to restore a 5BEL unit into a fully working and operating train. Their goal is to have the train ready and in service by the London 2012 Olympics, a goal which is well within their grasp. The stunningly elegant Hornby model initially produced in two distinctive livery periods captures perfectly the opulence and style of the Brighton Belle Pullman. Each Car is lit and complete with detailed interior.
