      Accurascale models just keep getting better! This 37 will feature as a fixture powering my engineering stock from today on... Simply the best!

      Good work guys looking forward t o the Class 50's. I may even buy the new class 31 if I can squeeze the cash out of my wallet!

      Not out of the box

      Had a quick sneak peak of it, when it arrived and looks impressive with the amount of detail on it. Just hope it sounds as good as it looks when it finally gets on the track.

      This is my first purchase from Accurascale, and even though it took a long time to arrive it certainly was worth the wait. A very smooth runner in both directions, the detail is absolutely first class, and very good value for money. I look forward to receiving the further two locomotives I have on order.


      Yet another impressive model from Accurascale. Finely detailed especially the ETMR equipment underslung below the chassis. Great colour rendition too.


      Superb model as I have come to expect from Accurascale.
