Accucraft Bagnall
Many of you will have seen the engineering sample of the 7/8ths Bagnall unveiled at the Llanfair Show. We think you will agree that it is an outstanding model.


Bagnall were renowned builders of industrial locomotives for both standard gauge and narrow gauge. They developed a huge range of designs and built numerous engines for the ‘big four’ and the MOD. The 7″ x 12″ saddle tank was a mid-range narrow gauge design that could be supplied in a number of different formats. Several examples of the type have been preserved, one of the most famous being the Rev. Teddy Boston’s ‘Pixie’ which ran round his railway in the garden of Cadeby rectory! The model is gas fired and fitted with a water gauge with blow-down valve, miniature pressure gauge and a water top up valve can also be fitted; constructed of stainless steel and etched brass, the loco has an enhanced level of detail made possible by this scale including a brake stand / gas control valve.


It is not gauge-adjustable and is only available in 45mm gauge.


UK RRP £1,100.00 – delivery will now be in the first quarter of 2016.
