Drawing the production line to a close after 18 years and many hundreds of locomotives was 66779. This locomotive was specially finished in British Railways lined green it was to be named “Evening Star”. The loco also carried commemorative bells above the cab windows and a plaque denoting its significance in the Class 66 story. Its appearance reflected that of BR class 9F 92220, Evening Star which famously brought the curtain down for steam production for British Railways. In an unveiling ceremony at York on the 10th May 2016, GBRf CEO, John Smith promised the locomotive to the National Railway Museum when it reaches the end of its expected service life. Still carrying its special BR lined green livery it can be seen working across the country on all manner of GBRf workings.

Our Class 66 model is based on the award winning ‘accura-standard’ platform, with all-wheel powered six-axle bogies, a powerful twin flywheel fitted motor and market leading electronics package.

Evening Star

Having purchased 66001 recently I had great expectations for the last built
I was not disappointed, the livery finish and lining are exemplary and is a great credit to the guys at Accurascale.A massive step up from the Lima and Hornby models I started out with many years ago.
Keep up the good work.

Exquisite Model

Accurascale Exclusive packaging is superb and this model is no exception. I do like the fact they fitted the bells and the packaging allows for them without damage. The sound file even has the bell ring which I like. The model arrived in perfect condition what a delightful model to own

What a treat it was to get this loco, glad I missed out on other manufacturers models of the same model. Runs beautifully and no wobble! No loose bits in the box and the box itself is a treat as well. One complaint, the paint on the bell is to shiny, I keep thinking the top light is switched on! Well done Accurascale for taking a great model and making it even better.

Another fantastic locomotive.

The class 66 is an absolutely phenomenal locomotive. Accurascale have captured the look, feel and performance of this heavyweight. Yet again i am literally blown away with this model. Running quality is excellent as is the finish and fidelity. Highly delighted with my two class 66's.
