BREL Class 58

      The 50 members of the BREL built UK class 58 were built between 1983 and 1987 and have been seen in a number of liveries over the years. ElDavo's Railway Emporium plans to offer most if not all of the livery combinations as "payware" models. The models have a reasonably high level of detail but are not "super detailed" and are designed to be usable on a wide range of computers while retaining enough modelled and textured detail to produce something representative of the class. All models are delivered with multiple versions of the selected livery ranging from clean through to downright filthy selectable by the user or randomly via Chameleon.

For details of the extensive range of features incorporated in the class 58 model and for images go to the features page.

The system that delivers your license key by e-mail used to be automated but due to changes in EU VAT law now has to be manually triggered by me to avoid having to charge you VAT. Please allow a few hours for delivery. In normal circumstances I would expect to deliver your license key within 24 hours but in exceptional circumstances there may be a longer delay. Feel fee to e-mail us if you haven't received anything within 24 hours.
