Welcome to our first bulletin of 2019. This month we bring you news of changes to the supply of Gauge 1 locomotives, the arrival of the Baguley Drewry diesels, an update about Dolgoch and the discovery of some discontinued UK inventory in California!
1:32 Scale, Gauge 1 locomotives
After much consideration we have decided that the only way we can continue to serve the Gauge 1 market is to sell Accucraft locomotives direct. This has not been an easy decision but it has been forced on us by new entrants in the market (models which are being sold direct into the UK by their importers) which have under-mined our ability to sell through our dealer network. All future Accucraft 1:32 locomotives will only be available direct from us although our dealers will be happy to continue to supply you with our range of rolling stock. The immediate consequence of this is that we are delighted to be able to offer the next batch of ‘Victories’ with a set of four RCH 7 Plank wagons for the original RRP of £1275.00, effectively reducing the price of the locomotive to just £975.00 (*wagons to be a selection of ‘Big Four’ or BR types); the power unit will be available with two wagons FOC on the same basis. Rest assured this does not mean that we will abandon 1:32 Scale since, in addition to the Aster-Accucraft locomotives now available through us, we will be announcing new Accucraft (UK) types in the future as well.

1:19 Scale Tallylyn Railway 0-4-0T Dolgoch
We are now able to share some of the final CAD renderings of Dolgoch with you. Certain refinements have been carried out since we originally unveiled the locomotive, notably the moving of the reverser further forward in the cab to a more prototypical position. UK RRP £1550, available in either 32mm or 45mm gauge, a percentage of the retail profit from each sale will be donated to the Talyllyn Railway for the future overhaul of Dolgoch, a higher percentage if the model is bought direct from Accucraft UK Ltd. We would like to acknowledge the help we have received from Talyllyn Railway members in preparing the drawings for this model. You can see full details of the model here.
A review of the inventory of UK outline stock remaining in Union City has thrown up some pleasant surprises. In consequence we are able to offer a limited number of the following locomotives.
