Accurascale is celebrating its fifth birthday with the announcement of a second production run of the popular ‘OO’ gauge Class 55 ‘Deltics’.
The new run of models will also feature improvements and modifications following customer feedback about the initial batch of locomotives. Amendments include a revised bogie brake chain arrangement to make them more robust and the corner step mounting and fuel tanks have also been improved with stronger mountings. Nose handrails are also being upgraded for a more realistic appearance.
Six new ‘OO’ gauge ‘Deltics’ form this latest production run including D9018 Ballymoss in BR two-tone green with small yellow panels (Cat No. ACC2788), 55004 Queen’s Own Highlander in BR blue (ACC2785), 55013 The Black Watch in ‘Rainhill’ BR blue with silver fuel tanks, grey roof and white detailing (ACC2786) and 55020 Nimbus in BR blue (ACC2789).
The remaining two ‘Deltics’ will be Accurascale Exclusive models finished as 55002/D9000 Royal Scots Grey in BR two-tone green (late 1990s Virgin CrossCountry condition) with high-intensity headlight (ACC2790) and, following customer requests, a re-run of 9016 Gordon Highlander in Porterbrook purple with unique WIPAC lights (ACC2787).
Each of the six releases will reflect their prototypes at a given timeframe in their career, with nuances to their detail and/or decoration included.
Delivery is slated for early 2024, priced at £169.99 DCC ready and £259.99 DCC sound fitted. The four standard models will be available from Accurascale stockists, while all six will also be available to order at the Accurascale website.
