New Accurascale Exclusive - Tango Tractor! HN Rail 37405

New Accurascale Exclusive - Tango Tractor! HN Rail 37405

Last week we saw the exciting announcement of our second production run of Class 37s, along with the news that the first locomotives are very close to arriving at our warehouse. 

Eight locomotives made up the announcement, but we did leave one out. Our Accurascale Exclusive of course!

Continuing our theme of modern era 37s and paying tribute to over 60 years of hard work completed so far by these stalwart machines, it seemed only right to introduce a current era tractor to the line up. Something bright, different, something that stands out and is easily recognisable. 

There could only be one candidate; 37405 in the very colourful HN Rail livery!


While Harry Needle is most closely associated with Class 20s, his eponymous railway company has now acquired 11 Class 37s as they have slowly come up for sale by Direct Rail Services. ETS-fitted 37405 was the first member of the Class 37/4 fleet to be divested by the Kingmoor-based operator, joining the second batch of locomotives for tender in February 2022, exactly one year after it was placed into store.

Resurrected at Barrow Hill, it returned to the main line in November 2022 in an extraordinary shade of 'tango' orange that originally debuted on his former Class 20/3 machines in 2012. Now on hire to Colas Rail, it has principally been working infrastructure trains out of Shrewsbury Coleham depot with Network Rail's fleet of Class 97/3s.

The configuration of this model matches our 'modernised' Class 37/4s from our first production run, complete with plated bodyside windows, LED tail lights, DRS multiple working socket, speedo cable and rectangular-style buffers.

With the inclusion of the Heavy Tractor Group (HTG) limited edition model of their loco 37 714 (which you can pre-order here!) we will see a total of ten new Class 37s in run two with the addition of 37405. 

Like any Accurascale Exclusive model, 37405 will come in special presentation packaging with certificate and is only available direct via our website. Modellers can pre-order the locomotive, or any other Accurascale Exclusive model via the Accurascale website, without the need to purchase any club subscriptions or incur any additional fees, with a price of £169.99 for DC/DCC Ready and £259.99 our splendid "Accurathrash" set up. Delivery is Q1 2024!
