Havn't run them yet but if they run as good as they look should be good

Beyond words

Simply amazing wagons. The fine detail & finesse is like no other wagons I’ve owned and is simply the best quality and an pleasure to watch the rake working it’s way round the layout

James Makin
Beautiful & accurate models

The wagons all arrived well packaged and with a wealth of detailed parts all attached, they are smooth and free running, and represent the prototype much better than anything that's gone before. The printing on the model is crisp and coloured accurately, and I can't wait to supplement these with examples from future batches to grow the collection - highly recommended.

Simon Walker

Tim Maslin

Excellent hopper wagons. Quality is great and they run really well. Had to deal with a squeaky wheel but can't really complain with that.

Steven Maxwell

Fantastic wagon! Detail is amazing, these are lovely wagons produced to a high standard

Ashley Knowles

Exceptionally fine detailed wagon, really knocked ball out the park, excellent value for money. These aren’t just models these are engineering precision models that link with my historical mining heritage. So I expect quality I pay for and accurascale delivers in spades. I’m absolutely delighted with my prestigious wagons not because of what they are but because what they represent to me. Cost wise is irrelevant because of the priceless sentimental value. Detail is just incredible it’s all there. In my view your products are premium engineering models some of the best money can buy, the sprung buffers, the instanter screw link coupling, the break hoses even the underside is detailed an area not normally seen yet it too has the same level of detail. I love mgr hopper wagons, especially these ones with there shark shaped hopper bodies. These are some of thy most prestigious incredible wagons I have in my collection

Another superb wagon

Very pleased with the quality of these wagons - superb detail and trouble free running. I love that they even include sprung buffers at this price.
