Welcome to our September update. Firstly, we’d like to apologise for further delays to the delivery of stock. A combination of lockdowns in China and shipping issues continue to dog the progress of our projects and we thank you for your collective patience – as soon as we have definite news of arrival dates we will publish them here. Secondly, we are afraid to say that the recent falls in the value of Sterling will have an impact on future retail prices and although the current batch of ‘Lawleys’ will be sent out in the third week of September at their RRP of £2995.00 the next batch is likely to carry a UK RRP of £3250.00. Finally the office will be closed for the Llanfair Show and annual holidays from 2nd September until 20th September, email will be monitored but the ‘phone will remain unanswered.
With the first batch of ‘Lawleys’ now complete, we can share some factory images of the three liveries.
Another new dealer joins the Accucraft ‘family’!
We’d like to welcome Footplate Models of Kidderminster to our growing list of dealers. The shop has been established for over ten years now and continues to grow – going from strength to strength. The business is run by the father and son team of Derek and Richard – both having extensive knowledge of the hobby and the real thing! Just down the hill from the Severn Valley Railway’s terminus, the premises is perfectly located for anyone visiting the railway.

We have recently been offered several collections of both narrow gauge and Gauge 1 stock, among which are many sought-after locomotives and items of rolling stock, particularly older Aster models.
