Ellis Clark postpones ‘O’ gauge wagons

Ellis Clark Trains has postponed its planned ‘O’ gauge ‘Shark’, ‘Seacow’ and ‘Sealion’ engineers' wagons.


The company claims the changing nature of the ‘O’ gauge market, “saturation of ready-to-run freight wagons”, the anticipated price of the three wagons and pre-order numbers have led it to shelve the projects – although subject to demand they could be restarted.

Previously announced projects such as the ‘O’ gauge Pullman coaches, ‘OO’ gauge London and North Eastern Railway ‘Quad-Art’ coaches and War Department 2-10-0 could now be brought forward, with announcements anticipated in the coming weeks.
