WEATH­ER­ING HEIGHTS FOR OXFORD MOD­ELS

Model Rail (UK) - - Opening The Box -

Oxford Rail has un­veiled a new range of weath­ered mod­els un­der the brand ‘Weath­ered in Wales’. As the name sug­gests, th­ese mod­els will be hand-weath­ered at Oxford’s Swansea head­quar­ters and no two fin­ishes will be iden­ti­cal. The ini­tial range com­prises East Kent Rail­way-liv­er­ied Adams ‘Ra­dial’ and two open wag­ons. The first mod­els are due in stock by mid-novem­ber. Oxford Rail’s Tim Mul­hall told Model Rail that ‘Weath­ered in Wales’ lo­co­mo­tives will re­main the same price as un­weath­ered mod­els, but that wag­ons will in­crease in price by £1. He added that the only part of the lo­co­mo­tive not to be weath­ered will be the driv­ing wheels, in or­der to min­imise dis­rup­tion to elec­tri­cal con­tacts.
