sides and resin details and full interiors

The model will be powered by a Hornby motor, picking up off all eight wheels of that coach and will be DCC ready.

The 312s were based on the successful  Class 310 design with their introduction being in1975. The lessons learnt from the 310s meant that the jumper cables and sockets were now fully exposed and the wrap round driver windows were replaced with flat screens.

There were three sub classes of units, but externally all looked the same.

312/0 - 26 four car units to work out of Kings Cross on the outer suburban services.

312/1 - 19 four car units to work out of Liverpool Street on outer suburban services.

312/2 - 4 four car units to work with class 310s in and around Birmingham.

Both the 312/0 and 312/2 sets would eventually be transferred to work out of Liverpool Street

The units carried a wide range of liveries, from Plain BR Blue, through Network SouthEast to First Great Eastern.

As we produce models in the schemes, these will be added to the gallery.

All of the units were withdrawn by the summer of 2004 along with other “slam door” stock.
