I was lucky enough to pick up a sound fitted 55017 and it is absolutely stunning. Well done chaps. Really looking forward to the next run of Deltics

No Lightweight

Class 55 Durham Light Infantry is a stunning model which looks and sounds great. Lots of details which you sometimes wonder if they will ever be seen by anyone, but you know they are there. Is this model better than whats been on offer before? I would have to say yes.


First class. Superb detail. Excellent quality.


Epic level of detail. Unbelievably good value for money.

Utterly perfect! I cannot fault this model in any way, even the packaging is perfect

55017 The Durham Light Infantry?

First class - service, delivery and quality of the locomotive. The detail is excellent and without doubt much research has gone into the design and manufacture. A couple of parts had become detached during transit but easily rectified and a written note enclosed within the packaging to state that this can happen due to the nature of the fine detail - apologising if it should happen. Highly recommend.

Non sound Deltic

This is my third Deltic and first non sound loco and I’ve been equally impressed with it compared with the sound models. I do plan to convert it to sound when chips are available. A few issues noticeable chains loose at both ends, small details loose in the packaging but this is some all 3 of my Deltics had which was easily sorted, so be careful when unpacking your model as you can loose these parts easily. I like the headcode sheets as I will change this to a domino dot version.

It a really good model, highly recommended.

My first Accurascale sound Deltic

The loco arrived with just one tiny detail piece off and looked absolutely stunning. Well after buying a few DCC ready Deltics this time I went for a DCC sound version and all I can say about the sound is it's absolutely amazing, it's got a nice reverberation and bass to it just like the real locos. Looking forward to the second run and if you read this Accurascale could we please have D9000 TTG as run on the mainline in 1997 and 55008 in blue as 1978 condition. Thank you for producing a truly amazing version of a deltic.

The wait was worth it!

The detail on this loco is amazing! I was very impressed by the way this item was packaged too. I thought that Accurascale had sent the wrong item. I’m still getting to grips with the sound functions but most of it seems to be working great.
