new 'OO' Siphon G
Paul Isles, Project Manager at Accurascale UK joins Mike Wild in the Hornby Magazine workshop to reveal the manufacturers latest 'OO' gauge project.
Accurascale has revealed that its next ready-to-run ‘OO’ gauge model will replicate the Great Western Railway and British Railways built Siphon G bogie milk and parcels vans.
The first of these distinctive bogie vans were introduced by the GWR with inside frames in 1906 and these were later updated with inside frames from 1926. They were built for the transport of milk churns but were later used on parcels, mail and newspaper traffic.
Above: Accurascale’s next ‘OO’ gauge ready-to-run model will be the Siphon G bogie parcels van. A Class 45 recreates a newspaper train with the engineering samples on Topley Dale.
