Accurascale launches new ‘OO’ gauge Class 50

A ‘OO’ gauge Class 50 diesel is Accurascale’s next ready-to-run locomotive project. Join us for the exclusive video announcement of Accurascale's latest brand-new 'OO' locomotive. 

Built at English Electric’s Vulcan Foundry at Newton-le-Willows in the late 1960s, 50 English Electric Type 4s were built for use on the northern section of the West Coast Main Line (WCML) in a bid to improve timings over this stretch following the introduction of the accelerated electric service on the route south of Crewe. During their time on the London Midland Region, they could be found on passenger and freight trains.
