More Mk 2b deco samples surface


Accurascale has received further decorated samples of its all-new ‘OO’ gauge BR Mk 2b carriages for scrutiny by the company's project development team.

Amongst this latest batch are examples in BR blue and grey, Network SouthEast, Trans-Pennine and Northern Ireland Railways (NIR) colour schemes.


Whilst providing an indicator of what is to come, these samples of the BR Mk 2b carriages will be further refined with a series of amendments to the decoration, bogies, interior and exterior detailing before production commences.


Accurascale is producing a selection of individually numbered BR Mk 2b Corridor Brake First (BFK), Corridor First (FK), Corridor Second (SK) and Open Second (TSO) vehicles for ‘OO’, together with a collection of NIR Mk 2 models through sister company Irish Railway Models, including the Mk 2b Generator Car, Mk 2b Grill/Bar Car, Mk 2b Driving Trailer, Mk Mk 2b Corridor First (FK), 2c First Open and Mk 2b Second Open (ex-First Open).


The NIR vehicles will be available in triple carriage packs in NIR InterCity, NIR grey/blue, NIR grey/blue with InterCity branding and Railway Preservation Society of Ireland (RPSI) lined green, while the BR blue/grey, NSE, Trans-Pennine and West Coast Railway Company vehicles will be available singly.

Prices range from £59.95 for single carriages, to £172.96 for the NIR triple coach packs and £189.98 for the RPSI triple pack.
