Brilliant model

Really impressive model - a cut above the alternatives.

Best Steam Loco……….ever!

Smooth runner straight out of the box. Exquisite detail and robust enough to be handled without anything falling off! The sound is top quality and runs like a dream. I can’t wait for more steam locos from Accurascale, rock on👍

The Manor of all Manors!

After purchasing Iford Manor a few weeks ago, I noticed that Accurascale had more stock of Dinmore Manor available. As I wasn’t quick enough to pace an order originally for Dinmore Manor, I was delighted and quickly placed my order.

Dinmore arrived very promptly and is a real stunner. I have travelled behind the real life Dinmore Manor many times and can say that the model captures her beautifully. The model also runs like a dream just like my Iford Manor.

Together they will be regularly hauling trains on my up and coming heritage line model railway.

Thank you Accurascale.

Looks great, however would like a works weathered option. It looks a bit too pristine and would benefit from a dust coat of mat varnish. But that's just my preference. The sound quality is something else, brilliant firebox glow, especially when stationary and the shoveling coaling sound kicks in. Would also like a smoke unit fitted, but that depends on avaliable room, may be on future steam models.. The slow running is fantastic you wouldn't guess it was a 3 pole motor, it behaves like a five pole. The metal cast body is excellent, I enquired if a spare body shell is available but it's not. That's a pity because I wanted to weather the loco, but at this price I am reluctant to take the risk. Over all very pleased with my purchase. How about a set of coaches to complement it? I run it with a set of blood and custard Hornby Collet corridor coaches which gives it the perfect 1950 s look.

Exceptional models!

Dinmore Manor is the third Manor class model I've purchased from Accurascale. Easily one of the best RTR models on the 00 gauge market and a new standard setter for future models!

A very revolutionary loco

A very nice loco, bought this loco back in November last year am just amazed at the specs and the immense level of detail this has gone into making this.
Diecast body and chassis, painted cab detail, firebox flicker, stay alive, chrome plated chimney and safety valve bonnet.
A very smooth running loco, very quiet in both directions at variable speeds.
Until you turn the sound on and brings the whole experience to life, what a treat, not to forget the stay alive, which really comes in handy, no losing sound, no stuttering from the loco, Accurascale have done really well with this as their first oo gauge steam loco to the market.
So glad I went for the sound version, if you haven’t bought a manor or still undecided, you won’t be disappointed. Almost certainly, I will be buying a 2nd in the near future, mostly to be in this livery, gives such a smart appearance and gives the loco character.
Great Value for money, looking after the customers.

If this could be improved/ideas for other future steam related loco projects, I would include the following as standard:

• Pre-grouping/southern Route discs/Lamps as standard in the accessory pack (most steam locos released to the market don’t come with these as standard).
• Loco/Express headboards (as Standard) in the accessory pack.
• Where possible, maybe a five pole motor if needed?


Looks fantastic exactly like the real thing. Performance is good at medium to high speeds however the crawl is poor hence the 4 stars.

Hi accurascale i am very happy with the loco very well be together well done accurascale top marks

GWR Manor

Excellent model, grate detail, as with all detailed models, you have to be very careful how you handle them, might be an idea if the detail that is likely to brake was a bit more flexible, wich could have added benefits for everyone, keep the costs down. Smooth runner at slow speeds, great paint job, crew fits well into cab, not sure about the glittery effect on the crew, sounds are good, but can get drowned out by my other loco's, so might upgrade the speaker in the tender, check out roads and rails. Had a problem with one of the manors i purchased , it would only move in one direction, but accurascale were quick to replace, all in all 10 out of 10. Keep up the good work all. 👏
