Model Rail (UK) - - Contents -

We take a look at all the mod­els an­nounced dur­ing the War­ley week­end.

Accurascale has cho­sen the ev­er­pop­u­lar ‘Deltic’ as its first lo­co­mo­tive. The Accurascale team was given ac­cess to the Deltic Preser­va­tion So­ci­ety’s D9009 Aly­ci­don and D9015 Tul­yar to en­sure that its new model is the ◆ de­fin­i­tive ‘OO’ gauge take on the ◆ English Elec­tric Type 5. Tool­ing ◆ was due to start by the end of the year, with the new ‘Deltic’ due in stock by the end of 2019. The new model prom­ises myr­iad de­tail dif­fer­ences to re­flect in-ser­vice mod­i­fi­ca­tions and tweaks made to pre­served sur­vivors that have run on the main line. The im­pres­sive spec list in­cludes Shaw­plan name­plates and reg­i­men­tal crests where ap­pli­ca­ble, full ex­ter­nal and in­ter­nal light­ing, gear­box with he­li­cal gears, scale 100mph run­ning ca­pa­bil­ity, sprung metal buf­fers and a 21-pin DCC socket. Accurascale is also con­sid­er­ing sup­ply­ing ‘EM’ and ‘P4’ gauge wheelsets. It has worked closely with the DPS and sound spe­cial­ist ESU to en­sure that the sound op­tions are as re­al­is­tic as pos­si­ble.
