Welcome to our September update. After a successful Llanfair show we are now looking forward to attending not one but two shows over the weekend of 30th September/1st October, the relocated Elsecar Show to be held at Barrow Hill Roundhouse and the G1MRA AGM and Show in Woking. We hope to see you at one or the other! We are pleased to bring you news of a new generic model from Accucraft US, ‘Mabel’, further detail of the 16mm scale Bagnall saddle tank and some great videos from Bram Hengeveld of the new 1:32 scale 43XX Mogul.
Accucraft Trains is proud to announce our next freelance narrow gauge steam locomotive in 1:20.3 scale, 45mm gauge. The model is based on a 3ft gauge Baldwin style locomotive and will be available in both kit form and ready to run. Joining the ranks of the classic Ruby, Dora and Forney 0-4-4, we hope ‘Mabel’ brings the joy of live steam to both novices and experienced collectors alike. Special thanks to Marc Horovitz for our concept drawings. The anticipated UK RRP is £1275.00 for the kit version, £1495.00 for RTR models. Please contact our office to place a pre-order.

New for 2024 – 1:19 scale (16mm) Bagnall 0-4-0ST
Encouraged by the success of the Quarry Hunslet, scaled down from our 7/8ths” version, we have decided to shrink the Bagnall saddle tank in the wash as well! With its stepped boiler, the little locomotive should have ample run time and will be available in either 32mm or 45mm gauge. Fitted with simplified Walschaerts valve gear, a removable cab roof and choice of chimneys, we feel this little engine will be a winner for 2024. Once again David Fletcher has drawn the locomotive for us and illustrated a variety of attractive liveries and lining schemes. UK RRP is anticipated to be £1795.00.
Bagnall were renowned builders of industrial locomotives for both standard gauge and narrow gauge. They developed a huge range of designs and built numerous engines for the ‘big four’ and the MOD. The 7″ x 12″ saddle tank was a mid-range narrow gauge design that could be supplied in a number of different formats. Several examples of the type have been preserved, one of the most famous being the Rev. Teddy Boston’s ‘Pixie’ which ran round his railway in the garden of Cadeby rectory!
