Accucraft (UK) was delighted to support the Moseley Railway Trust’s ‘Tracks to the Trenches’ event in September.
Accucraft will be running a special edition of the highly successful War Department Baldwin 4-6-0T during the course of 2015 and a percentage of the sales profits from these models will be donated to the Moseley Trust.
Commenting on the project, Graham Langer of Accucraft said, “We are pleased to be able to help another preserved railway in this fashion and look forward to working with the Trust and the War Office Locomotive Trust on future projects. The model will be available through all Accucraft retailers as well as the Moseley Railway Trust. As part of the events to mark the centenary of the conflict, the Moseley Railway Trust has worked with Railway Gazette International to re-print the 1920 special edition. This month we are able to bring you a breaking story from Australia, including the announcement of two new 1:32 scale live steam engines.
Following the successful production and imminent delivery of the Victorian Railways NA Class 2-6-2T, Michael Ragg and Gordon Watson of Argyle Loco Works have formed Accucraft (Australia) to develop a range of live steam and electric models based on Australian prototypes.
For over a decade, Argyle has supported and represented Accucraft products throughout Australia and New Zealand and cooperates with Accucraft in design and development work. We look forward to working closely with Michael and his team and wish them the best of luck in a growing market.
Accucraft (Australia) is offering three versions – Live Steam Alcohol fired with locomotive boiler, Live Steam Gas Fired and Electric.
Also from Accucraft (Australia), to be offered as a set of Motor and Trailer (as pictured) with extra trailers available separately. Steam trams were introduced to Sydney as a temporary transport for the International Exhibition of 1879. Following the success of their coal-fired K-28, Accucraft (US) are producing a limited run of the attractive little C-25. The D&RG purchased this locomotive from the Crystal River in 1916, numbered it # 432, this number subsequently being changed in 1924 to # 375.
The C-25 was affectionately known as the “Baby Mudhen” because its pulling power was close to that of the K-27 class, those engines being known as “Mudhens.” The 375 when it was put into service in 1916 was the best steamer on the railroad at that time. Just a quick reminder that we will be attending the Llanfair Garden Railway Show on the 30th & 31st August and news of yet another new American locomotive! We will, as usual, be bringing our stand to Llanfair but this year we will also be bringing a selection of items for sale!
We will also be revealing some brand new additions to the range and will be supported by a team from Accucraft (US) and the factory. The event is being held on Saturday, 30th August and Sunday, 31st August 2014 at Llanfair Caereinion Leisure Centre, SY21 0HW, and in addition to numerous layouts there will be over forty traders present. Accucraft Trains is proud to announce Southern Pacific P-8 class 4-6-2 locomotives in 1:32 scale, 45mm gauge live steam. Constructed by Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1921, Southern Pacific’s fifteen P-8 class 4-6-2s #2461-2475 were obtained primarily for passenger service over the Ogden-Carlin segment of the railroad’s famed “Overland Route”. In 1976, a group of volunteers began work on full restoration of SP #2472 back to operable service. The model certainly captures the power and elegance of the prototype and with a UK RRP of just ?5630.00 we feel it represents incredible value for money. The Accucraft (US) 1:32 scale Norfolk & Western #611 will be their 20th anniversary locomotive! Unusually for a passenger design, the class were only equipped with 70 inch driving wheels which required perfect balancing of the wheelsets and drive train and the adoption of light-weight rods to allow 100mph running.  However, the relatively small drivers and 300psi boiler pressure gave a very high tractive effort, 80,000 pounds, making the J’s the most powerful 4-8-4’s built without recourse to a booster. After twenty years of inactivity, #611 was taken to Birmingham, Alabama for overhaul in the Southern Railway’s Norris Yard workshops, emerging in 1982 to haul specials on the newly created Norfolk Southern railroad until 1994.  In 1995 it was once again confined in the museum at Roanoke, although there are moves to steam the loco once again, and a committee is hoping to “Fire up 611”! In production now for delivery later this year is the ideal locomotive the haul these nice hoppers and cabooses, the incredible Allegheny 2-6-6-6 – don’t miss out! This month we bring you news of a new dealership in Derbyshire, a re-run of the W & L cattle vans, the announcement of a lovely new Canadian Pacific locomotive and a reminder about warranty returns. We are pleased to say that we have recently added Malc’s Models to our list of dealers. Due to overwhelming demand we will be running the Welshpool & Llanfair cattle vans again this year.
Accucraft (US) is proud to announce the Canadian Pacific 2-10-4 ‘Selkirk’ #5935 in 1:32 scale, 45mm gauge live steam in an edition limited to 50 models. Another ten were built in 1938 and the Canadian Pacific Railway assigned these T1b class, numbered from 5920 to 5929. All Accucraft Trains models are designed and built to exacting standards from carefully researched plans and prototype measurements. Unfortunately we have had a number of casualties among locomotives coming in for warranty repairs.
At the 2014 National Garden Railway Show at Peterborough we announced another addition to our collection of W & L rolling stock, the sheep wagon!
As ever the Accucraft stand drew huge crowds and, this year, was enhanced by video unit scrolling images of the entire UK and US ranges.
Mike and Jennifer Lowe have taken over the premises previously occupied by Bay Models on the platform at Carnforth Station and are trading as Carnforth Models. With production about to start at the factory this is the last chance you have to guarantee getting the livery you would like. While we were attending the National Garden Railway Show, our friend Bram Hengeveld took the engineering sample of our soon to be delivered GWR 61XX 2-6-2T to the Gauge 1 Model Railway Association Show in Bakewell. We would like to remind you that we will be attending this year’s National Garden Railway Show in Peterborough on 12th April and look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible. Designed by Henry Bowen and introduced in 1937, the semi-streamlined Hudson was selected to haul the 1939 Royal Train that carried King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on their journey across Canada.
Although designed as express passenger engines and capable of over 90mph, the Royal Hudsons were also used extensively on freight duties, but it was on the prestigious passenger trains such as the daily Dominion that they made a name for themselves with 1250 mile runs between Calgary and Ft William (Thunder Bay). The highly detailed Accucraft model is still available for an astonishing ?3595.00 from your local retailer and would grace any Gauge 1 line. This month we are able to bring some exciting news from Accucraft (US), their first commercial electric model of a diesel locomotive in 1:29 scale and some amazing bargains to be had in their Mad March Sale!


Developed and manufactured between 1985 and 1992 by General Motors’ Electro-Motive Division (EMD), the four axle GP60-series locomotives produced 3800 h.p.
To appeal to railroads requiring slightly less horsepower and wanting to conserve fuel, EMD also built three GP59 demonstrators.
The model has a rugged plastic body, individually powered die-cast trucks, Plug-and-Play modular PC boards, directional LED headlights, front ditch lights, battery power connectors, lighted front numbers, cab interior lights, realistic driver figure, sliding cab windows, cab mounted mirrors, rooftop mounted air conditioner (specific road names), see-through steps, sturdy plastic handrails and stanchions, front pilot plough, coupler lift bars, grab irons on sides and ends, MU hoses, rotating rooftop fans, cast brass rooftop lift rings and a brass underframe bell. We are able to pass on some incredible discounts for Accucraft (US) live steam and electric models! Modular is the market leader in providing powerful information management solutions to meet the needs of both open pit and underground mining operations worldwide. Avoca Resources announced that it commenced placing cemented tailings (paste) into underground stopes at its Trident mine, Western Australia’s third largest underground gold mine, following the successful construction and commissioning of its paste plant.
All too often, a mining agreement that is vital to a country’s development and that will boost economic opportunity and job creation is an occasion for vilification by NGOs. Ventilation has always been a concern in underground mines.  For many years, there was very little understanding of how ventilation could be used to remove harmful contaminants from the air, or how to control airflow and isolate worked-out areas. Today, ventilation schemes typically consist of a complex network of open and sealed areas that provide fresh air to working faces while pushing dusty and gaseous air out of the mine.
In addition to the new 3-day cure for Tekseal®, Minova also unveiled new packaging that allows bulk handling of its standard-setting Tekseal® products. The new Minova bulk bags, constructed of a reinforced nylon material with a heavy-duty plastic liner, are tear- and water-resistant. The company has developed comprehensive documentation for the 3-day cure for Tekseal® and new bulk packaging systems. TM, designed to enhance mine site safety.  The system was developed after extensive research by Caterpillar showed that 70% of haulage truck accidents at mine sites occur during initial machine startup and low speed movement.
The system has been purpose-built to integrate with Cat large mining trucks-models 785, 789, 793 and 797-and is intended to aid an operator when starting to move a truck and during low speed maneuvering. Using a combination of short range radars, medium range radars and four cameras, the system monitors and shows the operator the areas immediately around the truck. Unlike basic camera systems, the Cat Integrated Object Detection System provides the operator with multiple types of warnings, both audible and visual.
The system is wholly contained on the machine and does not require any off-board infrastructure. Of course radar detects both moving and still objects, and camera views are available at all times.
The Cat Integrated Object Detection System will be available for many current models of large mining trucks in early 2010. The firm had a stand in the marquee for the duration of this action packed and extremely successful event which featured half a dozen locomotives in steam and numerous petrol tractors in action, as well as infantry, cavalry, armoured cars, lorries and even a Mk IV tank!
Orders placed through the Trust will be accompanied by a copy of a reprint of the 1920 Railway Gazette ‘Special War Transportation Number’, produced to record the role the railways played during World War 1. This was a war unlike any which the world had seen before, not least in the application of mechanical means to transport. The original has been professionally scanned and enhanced, to maximise the reproduction of the many original pictures. We feel sure that the NA Class will come to be regarded as the benchmark for accuracy and quality in Australian outline models. This streamlined locomotive was designed to haul express trains such as the ‘Newcastle Flyer’ and ‘Melbourne Limited’ for the New South Wales Government Railways. 3801 was the first steam locomotive to cross the continent of Australia when it hauled the ‘Western Endeavour’ special train from Sydney to Perth in 1970. The steam tram motor is basically a small enclosed saddle tank locomotive steam motor with four driving wheels in an 0-4-0 arrangement.
Originally the locomotive was a class 112, this number reflecting the total weight of the locomotive, but eventually the D&RGW changed the classification numbers of their locomotives to reflect their tractive effort, and thus the classification of C-25.
Sadly, on June 21, 1949 the one and only C-25 on the D&RGW was scrapped at Alamosa, Colorado. Over the route’s maximum gradient of 1.5%, a single P-8 was rated for a trailing load of 875-tons, approximately an eleven car passenger train. SP #2467 was donated to the City of Oakland in 1960 and placed on display at Harrison Railroad Park. For our US partner’s 20th anniversary, they are working with the N & W Historical Society and the Virginia Museum of Transportation’s ‘Fire Up 611’ project, to produce the most accurate model of N&W #611 to date! Delivered in bright red, beginning in the late 1950s they were repainted into overall yellow with blue lettering. The T1b class was ten tons lighter with the boiler pressure increased from 275 to 285psi.The final six Selkirks, classed T1c, were built by the Montreal Locomotive Works shop in 1949. Painstakingly hand-crafted from brass and stainless steel, the model is designed to give a lifetime of enjoyment. No 2850 was chosen and was turned out in a spectacular Royal blue and stainless steel livery to match the 12-coach blue and silver train. On the cross-country runs it was common to have several express reefers at the head end between the engine and baggage car.
These units were delivered in Santa Fe’s famous aluminum & red “Warbonnet” paint scheme.
However, World Growth International and World Growth Mongolia are clearly NGOs of a different cut - NGOs with people at the forefront of their considerations and with no hidden agendas.
But even in the most controlled environments, mined-out areas continue to generate dangerous methane gases.  Continuous ventilation of these areas can strain fan systems and is not practical for continuously monitoring mines in operation for 30 years or more. The bulk bags can be placed above the placer unit to provide material previously contained in individual 45-lb bags. The radar information is processed by a new on-board touch screen display, which alerts the operator with a visual indication followed by an audible alarm if the truck is put into gear. Three different levels of alarms indicate the proximity of an object or the urgency of taking action to avoid an object.
The system is scalable, allowing miners to start with just the four cameras and add radars later.


Additionally, any critical zone warning that has not been acknowledged will trigger an audible alarm. Radars used include both short range radars, which detect objects as far away as 23 feet (7 meters), and medium range radars, which have a range of 66 feet (20 meters).
Both standard and narrow gauge railways played a vital role supplying the front with ammunition, food and equipment and we will mark this contribution with appropriate releases. Commemorating the role played by narrow gauge railways behind the trenches, the Apedale Valley Railway had been transformed into a field railway network serving a trench system, military camp and supply depot. In 1920, The Railway Gazette published a special edition to record transport used in the war.
This attractive set will make a welcome addition to the Gauge One model fraternity offering an appealing balance to the much larger models normally associated with the scale. The P-8s thrived in this service until delivery of the larger, more powerful Mt-class 4-8-2s in the late 1920s.
In April 1959, SP #2472 was donated to the City of San Mateo and placed on display at the Fairgrounds. In the early 1990s, the Pacific Locomotive Association acquired SP #2467 and began its restoration. Peate’ versions of this popular wagon, Trackshack have commissioned an additional four private owner liveries and a bauxite example. The cabooses will be of all brass construction and come factory painted and lettered to represent the late 1940s to mid-1950s era.
The hoppers will also satisfy discriminating modellers who desire interesting rolling stock to operate behind their 1:32 scale locomotives. C&O obtained 1000 cars in series 105000-105999, constructed on builder’s Lot # DF-152, between January and March 1951. The first of the ‘Selkirks’ was built in 1929, in total twenty were constructed during this year numbered 5900 to 5919. They were the last standard gauge steam locomotives built in Canada for a Canadian railroad. Couplings are chopper type but have a hook fitted if you wish to remove the chopper hook and use 3 link chains. In addition to the paint schemes announced for the GP60s and GP60Ms Accucraft (US) will also be producing the very similar GP59 in Norfolk & Southern colours. These two have applauded the Government of Mongolia for signing a landmark mining agreement to develop Oyu Tolgoi.
A display screen in the cab provides visual confirmation of the objects detected by radar, which enables the operator to make informed decisions when moving a truck. When the audible alarm is active the camera view will switch automatically to the zone that has a detected object.
With appropriate rolling stock and locomotives drawn from a number of other railways, the scene was set for a well organised weekend displaying the workings and hazards of a WW1 light railway.
This would have been the first time that most readers would have become aware of the machines and techniques used to achieve the recent victory – much of it had been secret until then.
It was a standard Baldwin design, and other narrow gauge locos of this size and type were built for railroads in the Western Hemisphere. Most P-8s were then transferred further west for service between Oakland and Sacramento, along with the demanding Peninsula commute service between San Francisco and San Jose. Completed by July 1999, the locomotive made its operational debut at Sacramento’s Railfair in 1999.
Much the same as the T1b except that they incorporated two cross-compound air compressors for rapid recharging of the air brakes. The 1:1 scale CP #5935 is preserved and on display at Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum in Saint-Constant, Quebec. Subsequently all 45 members of the class carried a cast Royal Crown on their front running board skirts.
Including the three demonstrators, EMD constructed a total of 294 GP60s for seven different U.S.
Santa Fe initially assigned its GP60Ms in sets to their most time-sensitive intermodal trains. EMD’s GP59 demonstrators were sold to Norfolk Southern, who also purchased an additional thirty three units. The system is integrated with VIMSTM and other on-board computers, enabling it to switch into camera-only mode when the machine travels beyond 66 feet (20 meters).
In the event of multiple objects, the camera view will toggle between camera views in zones with objects.
Espee’s P-8 class 4-6-2s lasted until the mid-1950s, at which time they were replaced by diesels and retired.
SP #2467 is currently on loan for static display at the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento. A Minova bulk bag contains the equivalent of a full pallet of individual bags and requires no manual handling.  An added safety feature is the significant reduction in airborne dust and waste material handling. 3801 achieved the fastest journey from Sydney to Newcastle by rail (2 hours 1 minute 51 seconds) for a non-stop run on the 28th June 1964. 103a, (1891) is preserved and operates a regular public service at the Valley Heights Steam Tramway west of Sydney. The tenders held 12,000 imperial gallons of water and 4,100 imperial gallons of fuel oil and were equipped with six-wheel trucks.
The GP60, GP60M and GP60B were the last new four axle high horsepower freight locomotives built by EMD. The Minova bulk system also reduces the time and labor required to install a seal and helps to ensure a consistent mix. Purchasers of this model will also gain similar benefits as those donating ?178.10 to the new construction.
However, the 3-bay hopper can still serve as fine ‘stand-in’ model, particularly for those interested in operating coal trains behind their Virginian edition 2-6-6-6 “Allegheny”.
