Accucraft November News

Sorry about the somewhat late delivery of this newsletter, we have been awaiting news from the factory.  The good news is that the Gauge 1 rolling stock is now on its way  We have also been offered another collection of Aster locomotives to sell with unbeatable provenance and already half has been sold, the balance is listed at the bottom of this bulletin.  We are also listing some ‘open box’ and offer items from our own gauge 1 stock.

GWR 43XX 2-6-0 Moguls

After a seemingly endless gestation period we are pleased to be able to report that the GWR Moguls are nearly finished and we anticipate shipping them in December for delivery in the New Year. We are also happy to report that we have been able to hold the UK RRPs to those originally advertised, £2500.00 and £2595.00, although we may have to apply a small shipping surcharge depending on the rates current at the time.

BR Mk1 RMB Coaches + SK and BSK variants

The Mk1 coaches are now on their way, make sure you have a pre-order placed since they will be a one-off production run with some more SKs and BSKs to mop up residual demand. Delivery will also be in the first week or two of the New Year. The UK RRP will be £295.00.

1:32 Scale oil tankers in black

Coming with the Mk1s is another run of the Gauge 1 oil tankers, this time in black and white! The following versions will be available, UK RRP £95.00: R32-3A Plain Black R32-3E Esso R32-3F Shell-BP
