New AEC GW railcar in 00


Recommended Posts

The custard part of the blood and custard on the BR ones looks decidedly more yellow rather than cream. Think the blood needs to be a shade darker too.

I'd agree that the custard has too much custard powder in it - but the blood looks spot-on.

I think we've become too accustomed to other makers' rendering of "blood" which has, all-too-often, been significantly too dark.

 

This looks good to me, also.

I haven’t read thru all the posts but does anyone know if there will a sound version?

 

 

Heljan don't do sound-fitted versions of any of their range at present.

I note that the second batch of Class 25s will be provided with cables and connectors for speakers. Given they are still in production, will this also apply to the railcar/ will they be available as spares?

Heljans ads can get a bit ahead of themselves. We're still waiting for the OO9 Lynton & Barnstaple Baldwin that their ads claimed was available last autumn. Their website may be more helpful.

Does Ben know when these will be arriving in Denmark. The Heljan advert in the June RM says they are due in May.


Hattons have updated their pre-orders to show May or June now.

 

Ben @61661would be able to give the definitive answer, but it looks like they won’t be long. The images look very good.

 

One question I have for Ben though, where is the motor? On one of the images it looks as if it’s visible in the brake compartment- like the old Lima pancake motor....

 

Thanks.

When the CADs were posted on here the text said - ...A centrally-mounted, low profile motor under the floor will drive both bogies..... So hopefully that is what we will get.

There looks to be something in the parcels area - unless of course its parcels :-)

Hello All,

The OO railcar motor is set low in the chassis between the bogies, driving all four axles. The luggage van area contains the 21-pin decoder interface and open space where a speaker can be fitted. 

 

Hope this helps

 

Ben
