Full Details

Constructed between 1903 and 1920, the Victorian Railways DD/ class locomotive was designed as a mixed traffic locomotive, with capabilities of also hauling mainline passenger services. Eventually numbering 260 members, the 'D series' locomotives were constructed by both the Victorian Railways and outside locomotive builders, including the Phoenix Foundry in Ballarat, the Baldwin Locomotive works in the USA, and others. Over time, many of the class were rebuilt or modified with superheaters, larger cylinders, and larger boilers, which in turn lead to the introduction of 'sub classes', these being 'D1' (original DD class locomotives), 'D2' (superheated, with larger cylinders), and 'D3' (larger superheated boiler and electric lighting). 

The DD class locos also saw a number of variations in the early years of the class, whith this pack representing the 'Type 1' variants of the class.

The 'Type 1' DD class locomotives had low running boards, with 'splashers' over the wheels and crosshead guides, along with a narrower cab similar to those used on previous Victorian Railways locomotives. The DD class wore a number of liveries through their lives, with the first 3 variants arriving in the VR's 2 tone green, and with DD 560, the class leader, also receiving polished dome, brasswork and boiler banks. The DD class then wore the 'Canadian Red' livery, which included white lining and chocolate 'background'. From the 1920s, the Victorian Railways painted all locos in plain black, which all surviving 'D' series locos received.

The models feature five liveries, with both prototypical broad gauge (5ft3in), and fictional standard gauge (4ft8.5in) gauge locomotioves. The liveries included are 2 tone green V1 (DD 560, with polished brasswork), 2 tone green V2 (DD's 582/584 with simplified livery and painted over brasswork), Canadian Red and Chocolate, Works Grey (fictional), and Unpainted Brass (Fictional).
