Accurascale plans Class 92 and Mk 5s

ACCURASCALE has revealed that its next ‘OO’ gauge ready-to-run projects are the Class 92 Co-Co electrics and Mk 5 carriages - the latter covering both Caledonian Sleeper and TransPennine Express vehicles. At the same time Revolution Trains has announced its plans to develop Mk 5 stock for ‘N’ gauge.

Above: The Class 92 will be released in a number of version of Railfreight grey including with EWS branding as 92036 Bertolt Brecht (Cat No. ACC2199-92036).

A fleet of 46 Class 92s were built between 1993 and 1996 as part of the Channel Tunnel project. They were designed for freight and sleeper trains between Britain and France across the 25kv AC overhead and 750v DC third-rail network, but later found most of their work hauling freight traffic on the West Coast Main Line. Most recently the class has been used to haul the heavy Caledonian Sleeper service between London Euston and Glasgow/Edinburgh in Scotland where the train divides into portions for Aberdeen, Inverness and Fort William. ‘92s’ are also operated by DB Schenker and GB Railfreight for freight traffic.
