Aster-Accucraft

Accucraft UK, in association with Accucraft Trains, has a track record of producing high-quality British outline locomotives and rolling stock for the Gauge 1 market, as well as distributing the US range and the products of Accucraft (DE) and Accucraft (AUS) in the UK.  The acquisition of the Gauge 1 Model Company’s range further expanded the company’s commitment to 1:32 scale, bringing affordable, ready-to-run rolling stock to the market.

As a consequence of the recent collaboration between Aster Hobby Co. Inc. (Japan) and Accucraft Trains (USA), we have been appointed the sole Aster-Accucraft agent and distributor for the UK, further enhancing the range of products we can offer our customers.  Aster Hobby needs no introduction, their locomotives are often regarded as the bench mark for 1:32 live steam and the release of a batch of 9Fs was the first co-operative project between Aster Hobby and Accucraft Trains. Aster’s experience and expertise in producing the finest kit models has been combined with Accucraft’s component manufacturing and production skills to produce a new range of 1:32 scale locomotives.  Accucraft UK is now the source of spare parts for older Aster locomotives (as long as Japan has the component in its inventory) and Aster-Accucraft products will only be available direct from Accucraft (UK) Ltd.

After much consideration we have decided that the only way we can continue to serve the Gauge 1 market is to sell 1:32 scale locomotives direct.  This has not been an easy decision but it has been forced on us by new entrants in the market (models which are being sold direct into the UK by their importers) which have under-mined our ability to sell through our dealer network.  All future Accucraft 1:32 locomotives will only be available direct from us although our dealers will be happy to continue to supply you with our range of rolling stock.

The full listing of Accucraft (US) standard gauge stock is available on the Accucraft (US) website, please check with our UK office for prices – in the UK the range is only available through the Accucraft office in Herefordshire, items may have to be shipped from California with a lead time of four to six weeks.  Accucraft (US) manufactures a range of equipment using 1:29 & 1:32 scales for standard gauge prototypes.
