We will be adding a number of new tooling’s to our
product range in 2017. This includes:
The N7 LNER steam locomotive. An 0-6-2T loco originally designed by the
Great Eastern Railway as their K85 class. Operating out of London on Commuter
trains and further afield. The last of the class was withdrawn in 1962. A DCC
Sound variant will be offered.
Our Dean Goods locomotive gains a traditional GWR snowplough attachment
– allowing a very interesting variant to be modelled.
Our Mk3a coach range expands with the addition of the Scotrail Composite
coach. Hence we will offer Scotrail as well as Virgin and Stobart Rail liveries
On the wagon front, we offer five
new or enhanced models:
The Warwell – a Tank transporter built in significant numbers
from 1942. Initially used for the Transport of Sherman tanks from dock to
destination, the wagons continued to prove useful until recent times. We will
offer the original build plus variants operated by the Big four railway
companies, BR and MOD, together with British Steel carriers.
The Class A and Class B 35glw ton tank wagon. Made popular in kit form
many years ago in Black livery with ESSO branding. The prototype was built in
large numbers as a result of the 1955 modernisation plan.
We extend our Mineral wagon range with a 7 plank Coke wagon – including
the attractive Coalite livery.
Meanwhile our 7 plank coal wagon will be offered with new 3 hole
disk wheels and alternative end stanchions.
Lastly we extend our GWR Toad brake van range with the addition
of the AA3 4 wheel variant.
Being part of the UK’s biggest
Diecast brand means we can benefit from crossovers and synergies. Hence we will
also offer the following new static items in 2017:
Our Warwell will come with the option of prototypical loads – starting
with a newly tooled Sherman Tank, and a Steam Roller.
The Land Rover is a rugged all-terrain vehicle – even on the rails. We
will be offering a new Road-Rail variant which comes complete with access ramp
for driving on and off the track.
Plus we will offer new liveries on our
existing tooling – more Mk3a coaches to extend the BR train services, further
mineral wagons including weathered versions, and through popular demand, a
further BR livery on our 6 plank GWR Toad brake van.
