Like the class 37 diesels these Panniers are being produced "The Accurascale Way", with lots of variations and detail differences. Starting by ‘filling the gaps’ and cover variants never before offered in ready-to-run format. This means locomotives with backplate feed (not top feed fitted) feature heavily in the launch range. Another striking variation amongst the contractor built locomotives was the use of rivets for constructing the tanks. Later modifications like the large “8750” cab is also included as is the 67xx sub class that were built without steam heat or vacuum brakes – with relevant pipes and equipment missing from the model as per prototype.

One smaller but no less important change is around the cab area. When built the 57xx class didn’t have an external front handrail or bunker steps. The handrail was flush with the cab side and built into the beading, the steps were also a later addition which we have recreated on our model.

It's not just big variations, smaller features like the whistles with or without a whistle guard, types of water filler which can either be screw down or clip down, position and number of spare lamp irons, cast or fabricated brake hangers, couplings were either screw link or 3 link and right down to the route of the injector overflow pipe, whether it ran through the running plate or around the outside, has been catered for. A vast suite of tools allows the option to mix and match early and late features on the same locomotive, enabling a wide variety of prototypes to be recreated in faithful detail.

Accurascale would like to thank the Dean Forest Railway, The Great Central Railway and The Severn Valley Railway for their help and assistance in producing this model.
