      Unique Livery Bridging the Gap

      Another 'tractor' in the collection... this time the oddball yellow fronted green livery linking the BR green and BR blue eras.
      This loco like all the rest is resplendent and another jewel in my growing crown of Accurascale built units.
      Accurascale is getting an enviable record, up there with English Electric who was at the dizzying heights of success back in the time.
      Although just a 'mere mortal' non DCC fitted loco, it does the job and am happy with my purchase.

      Excellent

      This is the third of these models I have received. All have been excellent in finish and detail. Runs well on DC with no faults. Yet another excellent product from Accurascale. Keep up the good work. Just need some more of the split head code Vulcan and RSH ones........please.

      A beautiful model. Lots of little extras from the other 37s it's sharing the track with. Very pleased.

      Derailing in one direction

      A nice model but derailed on points in one direction. Fine when the other cab was leading and no other locos derail. It looks like the pickups are not set in the correct position on one bogie and are catching on the points. Will be fitting the snowplough and running the loco in one direction.

      Very nice loco, very nicely detailed and runs well. I like the magnetic roof feature on the loco, making fitting dcc easier. Would recommend.

      Beautiful Model, Great Sound, Awful Electrics.

      What a beautiful model compared to other iterations, the paint work is perfection, the sound is possibly the best of 150 I run, alas the electrics are not up to standard. Every time you start it up after 3 seconds it cuts off. You have to run it without sound then start the sound why it’s moving, not very prototypical. I believe it’s something to do with wiring arrangement of the speakers and stay alive??. Reluctantly returned for refund.
