Accurascale has revealed details of further planned exclusives for its all-new ‘OO’ gauge Class 31 and Class 50 diesel locomotives, as part of its Accurascale Exclusives range.
New to the Class 31 fold are 31407 in Mainline Freight livery (Cat No. ACC2835/ACC2840-DCC) and 31466 in EWS livery (ACC2834/ACC2839-DCC). A further pair of exclusive Class 31’s are set to be announced shortly.
31407’s eye-catching aircraft blue colour scheme was revealed at an event at Toton Traction Maintenance Depot (TMD) in 1997 and was often seen in combination with similarly adorned Inspection Saloon DB999504. Similarly, 31466 received its English Welsh and Scottish Railway maroon and gold livery ahead of the company’s Toton TMD open day in August 1998.
Both models will be available DCC ready and DCC sound-fitted.
Accurascale has also unveiled plans for two additional exclusive Class 50 diesels as 50007 Sir Edward Elgar in GW150 green (ACC2211/ACC2239-DCC) and 50149 Defiance in BR Railfreight General sector livery (ACC2216/ACC2244-DCC). Sir Edward Elgar is set to appear in 1988-1991 guise with full length orange cantrail stripe, while 50149 will reflect the colourful makeover it received in 1987 for use on freight trains in the South West. Both will be available in DCC ready and DCC sound fitted form.
Prices for the newly-announced Class 31s are set at £169.99 DCC ready and £269.99 DCC sound-fitted, while the Class 50s are priced at £189.99 DCC ready and £299.99 DCC sound-fitted.
Both sets of models are expected to arrive after the main batch of standard models in each case, during the first quarter of 2024.
