Interesting weight, compared to my Baccy. cl 37 which weighs in at 540g, non DCC, wonder what the Accura. 37 will weigh.

If we chart the way things are going, 102t to 107t, with a 37/7 and 37/9 about 122t.

TBH at 800 grams it is what the weight of our large model diesels/steamers should be…..too many years of lightweight “toy” trains in the past.

 

Then again this is coming from somebody who has a cupboard full of 7mm Heljan Diesels…..it’s a VERY strong cupboard! :D

I was just wondering the same thing.

 

This depleted Uranium alternative must have limited applications!

Is it only the 55, or will it be the 37 (40) 92 as well?

Hi Al,

 

We believe in consistency across our range, so our diesel and electric locomotives will feature similar setups, governed of course by their sizes. Our IRM metrovick for instance is around the size of a Class 25, and is over 500g.

DELTIC PRODUCTION PROGRESS

 

Our Deltics are advancing through production, with moulding complete and painting currently taking place. We have been sent these images over the past couple of weeks, where you can see BR blue complete, with BR green and Porterbrook Purple underway.

There have been further advancements since these images were taken, with green and purple locos receiving their other colours and chassis assembly beginning.

 

After painting is complete the tampo printing process will begin. Then it's onto final assembly, testing and shipping. This leaves is in good stead to deliver in Q1 2022.

Excited? We certainly are! A long road is coming to an end. Don't miss out on an Accurascale Deltic, with several already sold out and others moving fast. Pre-order yours direct right here: https://accurascale.co.uk/collections/class-55-deltic 

 

Cheers!

Only a dozen of each? That’s a very limited edition. One of the purples must be mine.

Hmmm Chinese New Year , year of the Deltic , is 1st Feb . Are you hopeful these will have shipped by then ?  If not I fear q2 is more likely .  Not that it’s an issue , but like others , just can’t wait to get my hands on one .

Hi @Legend,

Let’s hope they don’t get mixed up on a pallet with the Hello Kitty waving cats on the adjacent production line :o
