Welshpool & Llanfair Railway Sheep Wagons
We have now seen samples of the finished vehicles and keenly anticipate the arrival of the batch in August, along with the associated flat wagons. The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway was well provisioned with goods rolling stock when it was opened in 1902, all of which was supplied by Pickerings and the majority of which survived the closure of the line. The flat wagons also formed the basis for the W & L sheep wagons with removable side frames dropped into sockets on the wagon floor. The body is also available as a kit for those who wish to update their flat wagons.
Available in W&L Light Grey, G W Dark Grey, 4 different running numbers in each colour; or data only in light grey and bauxite. The wagon comes with a 45mm insulated wheel set fitted but a 32mm wheel set is provided for use on ‘0’ gauge. Couplings are chopper type but have a hook fitted if you wish to remove the chopper hook and use 3 link chains. Versions available, subject to production batch:

Accucraft UK Ltd was formed in 2004 by Ian and Sandy Pearse. Ian Pearse has over 30 years experience in garden railways and a strong development relationship with Accucraft Trains. The company incorporates their former business Marches Models, best known for supplying British narrow gauge live steam locomotives for gauges ‘O’ and ’1′. Accucraft UK Ltd continues the work of Marches Models as well as offering customers electrically powered models and ready to run plastic rolling stock in 1:32, 1:20.3 and 1:19 scales. Accucraft UK Ltd has significantly expanded the range of large scale model railway goods available to the UK and worldwide market and will continue to build on this.
As well as manufacturing our own range of model products we are happy to undertake commission work in most scales for retailers and other organisations. We are the sole UK importers and trade distributors for the complete range of products manufactured by Accucraft Trains of the USA. This includes the ranges of ACL (Accucraft Custom Line), AMS (American Model Supply), Accucraft Trains Limited and Classic ranges, and American Mainline. We also distribute the models made for Accucraft Australia (Argyle Models) and Accucraft Germany (MBV Schug).
Accucraft models are designed to reproduce the prototype as accurately as possible and built to give a lifetime of pleasure in their operation, bringing the joy of affordable live steam to many for the first time. A lot of our early locomotives are still in steam today, proving that they were a worthwhile investment for those who chose Accucraft.
