AVAILABLE SOON! ACCUCRAFT’S TWO NEW
NOW IN STOCK – KERR STUART ‘WREN’ 0-4-0T
IN 1:13.7 SCALE (7/8THS IN: 1 FT) Now available for 7/8ths”, the much-requested Kerr Stuart ‘Wren’ 0-4-0ST. In the UK the model has been produced in association with Kent Garden Railways and will only available from them or direct from Accucraft (UK). Kerr Stuart produced 163 ‘Wren’ type locomotives before they ceased trading in 1930 and a further four were constructed thereafter by Hunslets. The ‘Wrens’ owe their origin to the ‘Buya’ class of 1903 although the type encompassed a huge number of variations including inside and outside frames and inside and outside valve gear. Our model is based on the 2’ gauge ‘new type’ developed in 1915 with inside frames, Hackworth valve gear and cast-iron wheels fitted with steel tyres. In due course ‘Wrens’ were sent around
NEW FOR 2020! 1:19 SCALE QUARRY HUNSLET As soon as we had a chance to run Dolgoch last March we realised that the design brief for this small locomotive had produced an almost perfect balance of performance and duration and, having instinctively avoided some of the smaller designs, the possibilities for new engines were now numerous. With Talyllyn No.1 designed and signed off we immediately re-drew our 7/8ths” Quarry Hunslet as a 16mm model, a design whose characteristics will be much the same as the TR models and should prove to be a real crowd-pleaser. The more generous proportions of the ‘Large’ type Quarry Hunslets will prove beneficial to the locomotive’s run-time although to avoid compromising the look of the model we will only be offering it in 32mm gauge. The model is gas-fired and fitted with a water top up valve, water check valve, miniature pressure gauge; constructed of stainless steel and etched brass with a copper boiler, the model will, as usual, be covered by our two-year warranty. The anticipated UK RRP is £1595.00 (subject to the usual provisos), available Q4 2020.
GENERIC LOCOMOTIVES IN 1:19 SCALE Talgarth the tank engine and Sabrina the saddle tank are on their way! Both are freelance locomotives with design inspirations from Manning Wardle aimed at providing a robust, entry level model which is easy to maintain and operate. Although the design is still outside-framed it now has the sophistication of simplified Walschaerts valve gear and slide valve cylinders for a smoother performance and enhanced delivery of power. As before, we will also be offering the power unit (complete with boiler) as an ideal starting point for those who might wish to scratch-build their own body in 1:19 or even 1:13.7 scale. The locomotive is internally gas fired with a centre flue boiler. The model is gauge adjustable from 32mm (‘O’ gauge) to 45mm (‘1′ gauge) and has insulated wheels as standard. The axles run in bronze bearings and all the rods and valve gear are manufactured from stainless steel. The cab roof flips up and over sideways to give access to the cab controls. The boiler is fitted with a water gauge. The model is built from stainless steel, copper and brass. The model will be available black, green and red and blue. UK pre-order RRP £1050.00, post-delivery £1095.00.
the world, many to Africa and Asia whilst in the UK they found homes with construction companies and the MoD. Half a dozen ‘new types’ have been preserved, five of them in the UK. The model is internally gas fired and has slide valve cylinders with working Hackworth valve gear. The boiler is fitted with a water gauge with blow down valve, lubricator and pressure gauge. It is available in 45mm gauge (gauge 1) only. The model can be ordered in black, blue, green and red with a UK RRP of £1650.00.
