A beautiful new addition.

Just getting a new model railway up and running in my retirement. This A Class 027 engine will be the centre piece. It is a beautifully detailed crafted model. Runs very smoothly. Next project to upgrade to full DCC.
Thank you IRM!!

027s Review

It’s a magnificent model, lots of detail and a smooth runner. The only negative was the trailing bogie upper superstructure was catching on the bottom the locomotive body on #2 radius curves. I also bought an A15 locomotive and that’s perfect, no issues with it.

all A class i bought are of excellent quality,and great detail, as well as very good and smooth runners. Well done on getting the A's so accurate. Now the big question what is next ? Park royal dmu, sulzer, baby metro vicks, deutz ?
Laminate, park royal, coaches.

Joachim Kardorf-Kovacs A class

Its my 3. A-class (Q-kits 1995, Silverfox 2010)
Yes, fantastic, no comparison to the other models,
Sadly had no time to regauge it (to much work with all that Corona stuff).

Best wishes from a cold but sunny?! Bochum

A Class 027

The packaging and display of this model is superb! It feels heavy, especially when I compare it to my old Silver Fox Models. The attention to a detailed reproduction is truly magnificent. I haven't run the loco in yet. It's almost too good too take out from its presentation box! Exceptionally well done to everyone who helped create this brilliant loco!!! I had the great fortune to be on the A Class way back in 1965 and continiued up until 1989, when my father retired from driving. Such fabalous memories for me hauling goods and latterly passanger trains. P. S. I very rarely seen them this clean!!
