The arrival of 66001 on to British soil at 08:53 on the 18th of Aprill 1998 heralded a new dawn for British rail freight, the first of several hundred locomotives of a type that would revolutionise Railfreight across the UK (and Europe). There were a few subtle differences between the first two and the rest of the production batch which have never been replicated before on a model. Firstly the lashing eyes to secure the locomotive to the ship were in a different position to later models. The horn grille was also mounted almost flush with the body. Visually 66001 looked more striking owing to its red grilles which were later changed to black.

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.

The perfect Shed!

From opening the box to hearing the sounds for the first time. This 66 blew my mind and beat all expectations. Runs really smoothly and the sounds are incredible! You can even hear the TPWS/AWS system test and the GSMR registration sounds when changing direction. Sublime

Class 66 EWS 66001 in Norway

The EWS 66001 are running on an HO scale modelrailway in Norway. No one of the menbers have react to its scale in OO. It runs good with about 40 wagons, ordinary with 10 EWS wagons (with bogies). It is better than my old one from Hattons. Sorry that I have no picture of it, but I have a picture from the modelrailway. Place named Speyside.

A work of art on the class 66

Given accuracsales other products I knew this would be a good one. Indeed i was correct it's perfection in my opinion it has everything you could possibly need on a class 66 and the quality of the DCC sound is astonishing absolute beast of a model. Well worth the money and the wait !

The First of Many Sheds!

This EWS liveried class 66 is totally not my usual era for modelling - but having seen how good the pre-production models looked I decided to get one.

The whole item is superb - a fabulous model along with a brilliant presentation box etc. Clearly a lot of effort has gone into producing such a top class item - I can't wait to give it a run!

I'll definitely be in the market for DB and another EWS one in the very near future.

Wow what an awesome model. Takes me back to when I saved up for my Lima one back in the day - of course this is on another level. Perfect

Beautiful Class 66

Shipped very quickly to the Netherlands. Beautiful locomotive with very realistic sound. Runs great on my 60s Fleischmann rails. Keep up the good work Accurascale.

Simply a Superb Shed

Another fantastic looking detailed model that looks the business. Clearly a market leader in design, performance and detail. The whole package had me thinking Wow ! Well done accurascale, well worth the wait. Best Class made 66 model I own out of my fleet looking forward to the others when they arrive.

Scott C.

Absolute perfect representation of the EWS 66 I used to see all the time growing up as a child by the railways. Can’t wait for future releases to buy more in different liveries and grow a collection of these beautiful 66’s.

Another top model from Accurascale
