Accurascale has announced that the CAD design for the Transpennine Express Mark 5 coaches has been completed, with CAD renders made available for view of the complete rake.

The Mark 5 project has proven to be a mammoth task, with the design of the TPE and Caledonian Sleeper stock continuing over the last few months, along with survey trips to Polmadie and Longsight depots. Significant progress has been made with the completion of the CAD for the TPE Mark 5 set, and CAD for the Caledonian Sleeper sets well underway. Delivery of the OO models of TPE and Caledonian Sleeper stock is still on course for Q2, 2020.

Accurascale is offering two different TPE Packs with two different running numbers to allow modellers to have two sets of unique coaches on their layouts. Prices for the OO model is £225 per set of five coaches, which can be paid upfront, or a £30 deposit can be paid to secure an order, with the balance payable when the coaches arrive in stock. Accurascale is also working with Revolution Trains, who are offering these models in N Gauge.
