'Thompsons' in 'O' from Darstaed / Ellis Clark Trains


A range of RTR brass Thompson Mainline stock is to be produced by the manufacturer, available in a choice of three liveries.

Darstaed / Ellis Clarke Trains has unveiled CAD images of its next RTR project - a new range of Thompson Mainline rolling stock in O gauge, to be made available in spring of 2020. Based on the post-war 63ft chassis designs, the manufacturer has declared that its stock is to feature the same construction methodology as other items of rolling stock in the Darstaed Finescale range, notably its Mk. 1 coaches.

Thus far, its specification includes finely-detailed brass sides, professionally painted with brass luggage racks and a die-cast under-frame. Brake ends and full brakes will have a detachable plug-in rear light. Furthermore, super-detailed interiors with lights, compensated die-cast bogies, super-detailed door hinges and magnetic coupling corridor connectors will feature.
