2020 looks set to be a busy year for Oxford Rail, with a range of new models announced at today’s Toy Fair.
One of the key models announced is the new J26, which will be available in three different versions, BR (Early) 0-6-0 Class J26 No.65767, LNER 0-6-0 Class J26 No. 5738 and BR (Late) 0-6-0 Class J26 No.65736, all three will have the option of sound.
The second most popular new release on the stand was the Standard Cowans Sheldon 15T Crane, which will be offered in four different guises.
- BR Stoke M.P.D No.RS1023/15
- LMS Wellingborough No.243
- BR Stewarts Lane DS.316
- LNER Sunderland No.901628
While marshalled in a train, the jib would rest on a runner wagon. Oxford has looked at these and they vary in design far more than the cranes. Fortunately, many companies simply used a 4 or 5 plank PO wagon with a wooden cradle to support the jib - and Oxford will be producing this.
Also revealed was a new PO Tank wagon, new 10T covered vans, plus a new Pilchard wagon.
More details, including delivery timescales, will be announced soon.
