Accucraft October News

End of Season Sale!  The big news this month is that we are having an end of season clear out of older lines, ‘open box’ items and repaired stock, J&M Coaches make a welcome return, the G1MRA AGM and Show are looming and, after a very long gestation, the 7/8ths” Forney is finally in production!

End of season sale

As the summer draws to a close we like to review some of the ‘end of line’ items we have in stock as well as those which are discounted because they are ‘open box’ items (usually for photographic or show purposes) or because they have been returned to us for repair and thus cannot be sold as ‘new’.  There are some decent bargains among these offerings and most of the locomotives are one-off sales, being the ‘last of the line’.

Accucraft UK appointed J&M distributor

In association with the Accucraft factory, Bram Hengeveld of Exclusive Models is re-introducing the J&M Models brand and we are delighted to say that we have been appointed the UK agent. For those who may be unfamiliar with this range, J&M Models have, in the past, produced some of the most outstanding etched brass, 1:32 scale coaches, modelled on both British and European prototypes.  Initially there will be a small batch of Compagnie International de Wagons-Lits (CIWL) LX sleeping cars, bearing four different running numbers appropriate to the ‘Blue Train’; in the coming year all the different vehicles that made up the this iconic express train will be announced and produced.  These beautiful coaches will represent a second generation of J&M production with the use of improved materials, more detail but less weight than the originals. The axles will run in roller-bearings and the factory is working hard to produce an initial sample for the G1MRA AGM.  Exact specifications and prices will be available shortly.

G1MRA AGM and Show – 12th October, Stoneleigh

In many ways it has been a tumultuous year for our involvement in Gauge 1, bringing as it has the announcement of our new Radial Tank, delivery of the Aster-Accucraft 5MTs and Light and Heavy USRA Mikados, our appointment as the sole UK agent for the Aster range of locomotives and the consequent revelation that we will be producing not one, but two, new LNER locomotives under that banner in the next year.  Accucraft UK is now the premier supplier of 1:32 scale locomotives and rolling stock in the UK, incorporating the Accucraft US, AUS and DE ranges (and now J&M coaches) in the broad range of products we can now offer our customers.  For the Gauge 1 Model Railway Association, the focus of the year is the annual AGM and Show, held this time at the comfortably central location of the National Agricultural Showground at Stoneleigh Park.  We will be there and look forward to seeing you, showing you our new products and discussing your Gauge 1 requirements.

7/8ths” Forney 0-4-4 now in production

The Portland Company constructed 0-4-4 Forney #5 in 1891 for the Sandy River Railroad. The locomotive was named “N.B. Neal” and operated this way until 1908 when the Sandy River, Franklin & Megantic, Philips & Rangeley, along with their respective subsidiary railroads merged to form the Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes. At this time the loco was renumbered to SR&RL #6. In 1925 the loco was sold to the Kennebec Central, becoming their #4. She was again sold in 1933 to the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington as their #9. After the WW&F railroad was abandoned in 1936-‘37, it was purchased and stored near Putnam, Connecticut.

In December 1994, an agreement was reached with the estate for WW&F #9 and its return to Maine for eventual restoration. Over the course of several years the loco was restored and is now featured in regular excursion over a restored section of the railroad.
