Welcome to our August newsletter. The production prototype of the WD Hunslet broke cover at this year’s very successful ‘Tracks to the Trenches’ event in July.
Double debut at ‘Tracks to the Trenches’!
We managed to effect a ‘double debut’ at this year’s hugely successful ‘Tracks to the Trenches’ event at Apedale last month. Alongside the War Department Locomotive Trust’s WD Hunslet No. 303 making its first public passenger carrying runs, we unveiled our own, 1:19 scale model of the class and were able to display the two together. We are grateful to the WDLT for their assistance in creating the 16mm scale version and a percentage of the retail profit from the sale of these will be donated to the Trust. The image shows Ian Hughes of the WDLT, Graham Langer (Accucraft UK) and No. 303 – both large and small! A percentage of the retail profit from each UK sale will be donated to this locomotive, a greater percentage if ordered directly from us, Accucraft (UK) Ltd. You can find full details of the model here but don’t delay ordering one, there are only a handful left available.
