Fringford Manor BR Black with sound

An absolutely beautiful model, packaging literature and additional fittings were up to the normal exceptional high class expected of Accurascale.

Running was smooth and faultless, the 3-pole motor is adequate but does suffer a little at super slow crawl speeds, but handles the 2% inclines on my layout with a rake of 4 MK1 coaches with ease. There is a slight issue with navigating 2nd radius curves where the length of the driving wheels with the factory provided back to back settings induce a slight binding, all other radius curves are easily traversed.
Personally the sound output could be greater or an ability to increase its output would be good, as this is swamped by track noise when moving at speed (no specific track noise suppression on my layout).

With the engine/footplate crew fitted, firebox flicker and sound on, the manor is a class above all other steam loco's I currently in my stable.

I would note that maybe optional front and rear LED illuminated lamps (independently controlled) would have enhanced an already great loco but this is something I am considering to undertake myself as I accept front lamp arrangements for differing train arrangements would be hard to cater for at factory level.

Fantastic Manor

I have the DCC sound-fitted version of the Manor class steam loco and can’t give it enough stars. The detail, packaging, everything is superb. Have had it on the programming track today setting up all the options. Even straight out of the box it’s slow running is incredible. No need to run it in. Love the way the steam regulator sound automaticallly cuts off as the speed is reduced. And the open firebox door with the realistic glow is terrific. I already have the Deltic and the Class 37 and this is up there with those two marvellous models. Congratulations to Accurascale. Keep them coming. Ray Scott.

7814 Fringford Manor

An exquisite model of a GWR Manor Class steam locomotive, superbly detailed and priced for the 'working man'. I have only tested so far but runs very smoothly. First Class!!

7814 Fringford Manor

What a gem. It not only looks the part, it also runs like a dream. The level of detail is outstanding, along with the finish. Now, if an EM/P4 conversion kit was offered as well........ When the crew are added as well, it brings the model to life.

Sebastian W.

Great model, very reasonably priced. Well worth a purchase! Much better than Dapols model.


very good

An outstanding model, nicely decorated, with excellent attention to detail.

7814 Fringford Manor - BR Black

An extremely well packaged model; unboxed the detail is exquisite and the look of a Manor fantastically well achieved. Sadly I have yet to start my next layout - so not able to run it just yet - but looking forward to that. All in all, it LOOKS 10/10. Well done Accurascale! A 4-6-0 County class next please.
