Accurascale's Co-Co electric is chosen for the model retailer's latest OO gauge exclusive locomotive.
Kernow Model Rail Centre has commissioned exclusive models of 92017 Bart the Engine for 4mm:1ft scale from Accurascale. Models will feature a heavy die-cast metal chassis with all-wheel drive and electrical pick up, while other features include dual motorised pantographs, sprung buffers, separately-applied etched metal and plastic detail parts, including grab handles, steps, wipers and nameplates.
Lighting includes directional lighting in both DC and DCC modes, lighting clusters with appropriate day and night-time modes, red and white marker lights and separately switched cab lighting. An illuminated driver’s console will turn on and off automatically with movement. Provision for sound and DCC is via a 21-pin MTX socket.
Models are expected to be delivered in the third quarter of 2022, with a choice of DC, DCC-fitted and DCC sound-fitted variants. Further information about the models can be read here. For full details, including full specification and pricing, visit the Kernow Model Rail Centre website.
