Truly brilliant.

Fringford Manor is my second Accurascale Manor purchase. I was so impressed with the appearance and operation of Draycott Manor that I decided to buy another. I can't wait for further additions to the Accurascale GWR/WR stable.

Fringford Manor 7814

Currently only run-in on a rolling road where all testing worked well. Running backwards the loco moves side to side a little more than I expected (could this be a gear train issue?) but driving forward I'm glad to see this side motion is minimal. Sound levels could be louder but have not tried to adjust the level values to give a higher pitch yet. The added crew figures are great. Taking into account all the other amazing details on this loco I'm hoping this model alongside my first Manor (Draycott Manor) will prove to be an enjoyable addition to my fleet.

My first

As this is my first ever steam locomotive with sound, I was blown away with not just the sounds but the looks and the way it moved.
Also the packaging was sturdy and the delivery was included in the price. Fantastic.

The best manor yet.

Accurascale accuracy triumphs again.

What an outstanding loco. High end engineering has it running so smoothly and quietly and the detail is phenomenal. The two blacks of the boiler hold your gaze for ages. Magnificent - well done Accurascale.


Excellent quality madel as always.

A great model.

Excellent loco, very pleased with it! Probably the best quality of any manufacturer out there. You cannot beat the class of solid die-cast construction, which also seems to promote a superior paint finish.

Looks and feels excellent , not yet run it, so far so good

Dave S.
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.
