                      Probably the best model of a 37 ever made

                      What can be said that hasnt already. Easily the finest detailed 37 in oo gauge to date and a fine addition to the layout

                      Best OO gauge Class 37 !

                      One of several Accurascale Class 37’s that I have bought.
                      The level of detail is amazing and the loco runs smoothly.
                      Highly recommended.


                      Love this loco with great attention to detail and livery application.

                      Waited a long time for this to turn up, I knew it was gonna be worth it after seeing looking at my KUAs. Definitely don't regret getting it and can't wait to see if I can get hold of a large logo one now as well

                      Accurathrash at its best....

                      Fabulous detail with awesome haulage power and performance....
                      Oh and that sound....

                      Dylan C.

                      They’ve done it again! Another fantastic model by accurascale yet again. The sound file and speaker sounds utterly amazing and the detail and finish looks fantastic.

                      It’s that good I’ve had to order another one!

                      Highly recommended

                      Steven B.
                      Great Loco

                      Excellent representation of WIPAC fitted Class 37, sounds great and can easily customise the lighting functions.

                      Best rtr loco.

                      This is the best rtr UK loco I have ever seen. The detail is fantastic and running performance is excellent. Even the box with booklet is such high quality. Well done Accurascale team!!

                      Spirit of detail

                      Stunning detail runs smoothly more ordered

                      Paul S.

                      DRS Operations are one of my favorite railway subjects. One aspect of that is the long-time employment of early diesel classes such as the Class 37. Accurascale has not only captured the overall look of the class but has also incorporated all the subtle detail variations within the class as modified by DRS. As expected, the modelling has been executed to a high standard - the details and finish are all excellent.
