Using IRM B4 Bogies to convert Murphy Cravens coaches to 21mm

Bought these as Murphy bogies cannot be converted without major surgery. IRM can be converted to 21mm but fiddly to get gauge right due split axle construction. Any chance you could do axles set to 21mm? Also why are brake shoes moulded to 16.5mm gauge? That said once adjusted and fitted they look great and my Cravens look and run well on the correct gauge.

Leyland Olympian - Dublin Bus Cityswift - 13A

Recently got the Dublin Bus Cityswift 13a route from IRM and once again I wasn't disappointed, lovely Leyland Olympian in Cityswift livery ,loads of detail on the model, delighted to have one in my collection, great service from IRM as always.

Stunning Class 66

This is my 3rd Accurascale Class 66 purchase after being so impressed by the first two. Detail, weight & performance all top quality.

The Perfect Class 66

I have been looking for class 66 from other manufacturers including Hatton, Bachmann since some time and lucky I got this one.

Fastest delivery possible at that price point to Australia, and once I ran it, was very smooth and had a nice weight to it as it should for a freighter.

I played with the sound slots and functions a little as I got the LokProgrammer, and you may see in the video that I added some random functions while the drive is on, to make it more convenient and alive, but you won’t need to otherwise. The brake sound does not play in loop (it is an one time hiss than a squeal as it is in the original one), maybe it would be great if Accurascale tried to give us that as a small update to the project file.

I made the axle box rotation (they should be credited for that perfect thing as it is a first time accurate implementation in British Rail modelling IMO) visible by some soft acrylic paint touch, that just adds that extra detail visible. Some people have commented on absence of the spirax valve sound, it has that sound while shutting the engine down, and really that is all you need. My other wish was if they added the dial lights in that otherwise beautifully done cabin, but maybe in the next run?

If ESU makes it possible to unlock individual sound slots while allowing us to add more sound in the free slots what would open up a new window of opportunity for modellers, but that is beyond control of Accurascale so no complains about that. Finally, this seems to have a powerful motor needed for a heavy loco. It has the perfect balance for value for money.

66122 sound Fitted

Another faultless loco, thank you guys.

The sounds of a Shed

Cracking clear crisp sound

Fine looking model

Not tested yet as waiting for the 8ohm speaker to arrive but it looks great.

Excellent Sound

Great having 2 unique sound files for the 66's . Excellent ESU quality chip along with a well integrated Sound file with a raft of functions. Excellent!!

Great decoder

This decoder is well worth a 5 star rating.

Beautiful model

You open the box and Wow, what a beautiful model, perfect satin sheen. You lift the loco out and it feels like quality - heavyweight, detailed but not fragile. You put it on the track and it runs perfectly straight from the box. The assurance of a lifetime warrantly. £170 and worth every penny. This is what buying a model should feel like every time. Thank you Accurascale for making me feel that valued as a customer and for allowing me to enjoy such a beautiful model.

Another 66!

This is my 4th Accurascale class 66! All have been received in perfect order. A superb model in every respect. Looking forward to the next production run. Will no doubt treat myself to another!

Better than Before

Love the new Accurascale Class 66's. This one in Freightliner Orange 66415 is especially impressive and the colour matches well with the Hattons Original Freightliner Class 66 66623

The box is also a work of art, very pleased YouTube video placeholder
Class 66 sound decoder

Sounds great,easy fit. A little quiet but waiting for the speaker upgrade. Maybe a cv list for basic changes would be good, as I have no idea how to change the volume.

Replacement Bogies

Handy items to replace bogies on coaches so to have the correct width.

Class 66 You are not alone

This was an impulse purchase. Never really wanted a 66, but the charity donation swung the deal.

It is a really impressive locomotive and the packaging as always was beyond belief.

There were a couple of issues getting it to Nova Scotia but Patrick and team were helpfulness itself and it was well worth the wait.

Wonderful Model

Really quite exquisite model. The manufacturing is to a high standard and the decoration is flawless, despite the complexity of the livery on Evening Star. Lovely rendition of colouring. Very fine bell fitted uniquely on this example. Arrived with all bits attached to the model. Runs generally smoothly although slight judder which I hope will disappear with running in, otherwise I've no doubt Accurascale support will resolve. Box is very attractive.

Another great model

Another great model from the Accurascale team. Swift despatch and arrival as usual.

Very Unique

Initially only wanted to get one or two packs to go with my Hornby Merchant Navy. Now I keep buying more because of how good they look! I do believe the reason why this pack in particular sold out so fast is because van No. S50869 is the only van to have a Red Label Jamaica Banana decal on it.

Beautiful loco! Absolutely stunning! And works perfectly straight out of the box. And the box is a masterpiece, too!

Twin led buffer stop

This is a well made lighted buffer stops. The twin lights on top are bright and the model clips on to the track ( code 100) easily. I will fix the buffer to the track with pins or glue as a over running train can dislodge them.

Evening Star⁸

Chip works ok, but the sound needs to be loader. Set too low. Need to have information about CV code and values to change settings.

Magnetic dellner coupling

Good product. Could do with being a couple of mm longer tried on mk3 coaches and on 3rd radius bends the coaches derail. Due to coaches catching each other
Strong magnets

Nuclear Flask Wagons

Quality wagons, only complaint would be the need for a battery for the rear light

As close to the real thing as it gets!

This decoder brings your class 37 to life. Lovely sound with seamless transitions and excellent function implementation.
