Wickham Trolley EP for 'O' arrives
Ellis Clark Trains (ECT) has received the first Engineering Prototype (EP) of its forthcoming 'O' gauge Wickham Trolley and planked trailer for evaluation.
These all-new ready-to-run 'O' gauge models will include a wealth of detailing including etched metal grilles, dials and handbrake, die-cast metal chassis, drive unit, 'stay-alive' capability, directional lighting and will now be offered in Digital Command Control (DCC) ready and DCC sound-fitted formats. DCC Sound models will feature a pre-fitted ZIMO decoder and cube speaker located in the engine bay.
ECT has also taken the opportunity to add a separate Wickham flatbed trailer vehicle to the release schedule. These will be finished in plain black with wooden planking and can be attached to the Wickham Trolley using its hook coupling.
In addition, ECT has added extra variants to the list with three new 'as-preserved' liveries including Didcot Railway Centre's chocolate and cream example (Cat No. E1020Z), the Somerset and Dorset Railway's B40W in BR maroon with white roof (E1021Z) and Mangapps' Wickham in black with 'wasp' stripes (E1022Z). Four new un-numbered examples have also been added in BR maroon (E1016(U)), BR green (E1017(U)), BR yellow (E1018(U)) and Engineers' yellow (E1019(U)). These un-numbered models will also be supplied with a transfer sheet of pre-configured and individual numbers. See table below for further details.
Prices for the Wickham Trolley and planked trailer are set at £159.95 DCC ready and £259.95 DCC sound-fitted. Extra Wickham planked trailers are priced £34.95, while the newly-announced flatbed trailers are priced at £32.95 each.
