Accucraft November News

Welcome to our November update.  It was good to see many of you at the Exeter Show which, despite the weather, was an excellent event.  This month we bring you news of the new US generic locomotive, Mabel, a flurry of new items for sale through the Clearing House and changes to the way in which Aster spares can be sourced in future.

Introducing ‘Mabel’

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.

Aster spare parts

Having done our best to support Aster customers since we gave up the UK agency for the brand we have reached a point where we are no longer able to devote as much time as we’d like to the process.  We’d like to thank our former Aster customers for their loyalty and hope they enjoy the new releases from that company.  In future spare parts can be sourced from or
