Project Update - Decorated Mark 1 Subs Arrive

Our beautiful Mark 1 suburban coaches have reached decoration sample stage and are looking very nice indeed.

The 56ft 11" Mark 1 suburban coaches have been high on the wishlists of many modellers for some time and required a 21st century model of these distinctive carriages to match our forthcoming Class 31 locomotives. We were delighted to take on that challenge, and have given them the full Accurascale treatment, particularly when it comes to the interiors.

As previewed with our recent announcement of the Accurascale Exclusive BR BTU Tool Van ADB 963952, the decorated samples for the subs have arrived and while they show how attractive the coaches look with a lick of paint, they also show that there is room for some improvements.

Firstly, the footboards will be corrected, with the samples using wavy parts that will have much better rigidity once on the final models that run on your layout.

On the whole, we are very happy with the colour shade of the coach bodies, between BR Blue and Carmine they look excellent and faithful renditions of both liveries. However, the shade of brown used for the BR Blue coaches is incorrect, and will be a much darker shade on the finished models. There will also be improvements to the shade used on the battery boxes.

Lots of lovely detail though, right?



Interiors are also shaping up nicely, with the decorated samples showing the lengths we have gone to when producing accurate representations of these coaches. With fully painted interiors, etched luggage racks and printed detail such as route maps, all visible via the removable magnetic roof and fully lit, they promise to add something a bit special to the coaching stock on your layout.

With the corrections now fed back to the factory production can now commence and a delivery date of Q4 2023 is envisaged. With a museum quality specification of full diecast chassis, next level interior detailing and lighting, beautifully smooth running characteristics, a wealth of detail both internally and externally, and close coupling system, these aim to set yet another benchmark when it comes to OO gauge coaching stock. 

Pre-order yours today, with each coach priced at £64.95 which represents excellent value for money considering the high specification, via your local stockist or direct via our website. Remember too that you get 10% off when you order two or more coaches and free postage and packaging via the Accurascale website, as well as loyalty bonus points off future purchases!
