Its first production run under the Ellis Clark Trains name will see detailed ready-to-run models of the 22T 'Presflo' wagon in a variety of guises and liveries.

Skipton-based O gauge specialist model shop, Ellis Clark Trains, has unveiled plans to produce its first ready-to-run wagon, using its own brand name. Expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2021, its models represent the 'Presflo' wagon in 1:43.5 finescale O gauge.

Its specification promises finely-detailed wagons with an impressive specification, including

  • Fine detailing throughout
  • Carefully researched and designed using original drawings and dimensions, cross-referenced with pictures of original and rebuilt wagons.
  • Fine pipework, handles and small detailed parts in plastic and metal
  • Die-cast chassis
  • Sprung buffers
  • Three-link couplings
  • Sprung axle boxes
  • Will run on Peco second radius curves (1028mm)
  • We are producing six different liveries, with a choice of running numbers and, for each livery, an un-numbered version with a transfer sheet

The following versions have been announced:
