Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot to admire with these Manors, most of
which has already been covered elsewhere.
The one bugbear for me is the loco to tender connection, uncoupling to
get to the dcc is awkward and having to check that the loco and tender are
connected with the bar before placing on the track (similar to early
Bachmann steam tender loco’s) is frustrating.
Another wonderful Accurascale Manor joins the fleet. Really pleased with the quality of the loco as per all other Accurascale locos I have.
5 stars well earned by Accurascale. A very premium product at a reasonable price. Look forward to Accurascale's next Steam locos.
As expected, this loco is first class in every way, highly recommended.
What a gorgeous loco. The juxtaposition of the two blacks of the smokebox and boiler are exquisite and the detail is exceptional. The running improves with use.
Accurascale manors are second to none
It’s fantastic value compared to other manufacturers the detail is second to none this is my first steamer from accurascale I already have 2 55s a 92 and a 37 a rake of MGRs I’m still waiting for my second 37 from the first run I’ve also got 2 50s 2 31s and an 89 on order know the detail and value accurascale put in to there models I would love them to produce a class 124 and 123 transpennine in 00 there was only Trix that ever did one inHO
What a fantastic engine. Attention to detail is second to none. The finish is top class and it runs as smooth as silk. I gave mine 15 mins of running in and the performance was silky smooth. I now have 3 accurascale Manors and all perform admirably. Can’t wait for the next accurascale steamer.
Quite simply a superb model locomotive. So good I purchased two more.
Absolutely brilliant, it arrived intact, well packed, a smooth runner after rolling road treatment, I have added only the crew, included coal load and buffer beam pipe work and it has become pride of place in my shed. Very pleasing DCC sound to a sensible and realistic volume, well done Accurascale !!
