This Hornby OO Gauge BR Class 50, Co-Co, 50044 'Exeter' locomotive is designed with exclusive Era 7 detailing accuracy and comes ready to use on a digital layout with Hornby 21 pin decoder. Precision engineering ensures reliable performance and full compatibility with other OO gauge locomotives.

D444 as it was originally known was introduced into service in 1968 and allocated to the Stoke Division, being renumbered 50044 under the TOPS classification system in 1973. In 1974 50044 was relocated to the Bristol Bath Road Shed where it would remain for the remainder of its life. In a nice mathematic and literary coincidence, exactly 50 of the Class 50 locomotives were built and all of them named, 'Exeter' receiving its name in 1978.
