Welcome to our March bulletin. This month we bring you news of the first 7/8ths” ‘Wren’ off the production line, our 2019 open day, an announcement at the Midlands Garden Railway Show, an extension to the offer of discounted rolling stock to accompany the new Aster-Accucraft Mikados and some discontinued UK stock still available from California.
The first ‘Wren’ off the production line!
The first ‘Wren’ off the production line is a green one! Showing the small modifications made following feedback from social media, mainly to improve the cab ergonomics and reduce the visual impact of some of the cab fittings, we feel this image is worth a thousand words! However, if you want these, take a look on the appropriate page! Delivery of the batch is expected in April/May – make sure you don’t miss out.
Accucraft’s 2019 open day – Saturday 8th June
The format will be much the same, once again at Unit 4, Long Meadow Industrial Estate. We will have factory seconds, damaged items and test samples to sell. as well as many ‘end of line’ items. This stock will be offered for sale on a ‘first come, first served’ basis without prior reservation and will include ‘open box’ locomotives, rolling stock and track components as well as sundry ‘kits of parts’ with potential for re-assembly! As they say, “everything must go!”
We will be supported by associated traders and stands. We will be running Accucraft locomotives in 1:13.7, 1:19, 1:20.3 and 1:32 scales. Opening times are 10:30hrs to 16:00hrs and there will be an on site café offering refreshments and light lunches.
Accucraft will attend the Midlands Garden Railway Show – 16th – 17th March
At the show we will be announcing our new 1:32 locomotive – we feel sure that this one will be a winner! Make sure you drop by the stand to pick up a data sheet and place an order.
