    Hornby Brighton Belle 1967 2 Car Pack (2 X Drive Mtr. Brake 3rd) Operating between London and Brighton, Brighton Belle 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 travelling 51 miles between London and Brighton in 60 minutes 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. Includes: Drive Motor Brake 3rd (Powered) and Drive Motor Brake 3rd
