Accucraft March News

After something of a drought for Gauge 1 followers we have bumper good news for you!  We have received our stock of Mk1 coaches and the 14 ton oil tankers as well as four production samples of the new 43XX, delivery of which is expected in April.  We will be attending the Midlands Garden Rail Show this coming weekend and will have examples of all these with us. We look forward to seeing you there.

Production samples of the GWR 43XX 2-6-0

We think you will agree that the factory has done a wonderful job of capturing the clean lines of Holcroft’s mogul.  The model is built to1:32 scale for 45mm gauge track, gas-fired with a single flue boiler.  Built to a similar formula as our very successful 61XX 2-6-2T, the chassis is constructed from stainless steel, the wheels are un-insulated. The boiler is copper, the cab and bodywork are constructed from etched brass. The gas tank is in a water bath in the tender.  The model will run round 4′ 6″ radius curves and is happy on code 332 or code 250 tracks, however, we do not recommend running through LGB code 332 pointwork.

At last!  The Mk1 coaches have arrived!

Much delayed because of Covid-19 and the subsequent rise in shipping costs, we can report that the Mk1 coaches have finally arrived, including the long anticipated RMB buffet cars.  Dealers now have their stock of these lovely Gauge 1 coaches but be advised, the maroon ones are nearly all sold out!  At the same time we also took delivery of the black 14 ton oil tankers and, again, these are rapidly selling out – don’t forget that the silver G1MRA 75th Anniversary tankers are still available (direct from G1MRA).
