                  Another fantastic loco

                  This is my sixth Accurascale class 37 and I can't wait for more! These models are one of the best on the market. Detailing is awesome. The fade livery has been applied very well. Lovely runners and the sound fitted ones are certainly worth the extra cost and really bring these locos to life.

                  Outstanding DRS Class 37/6

                  This model is another great offering. The Class 37 is one of my favorite diesels and Accurascale have captured all the subtle details of this variant as used in DRS service. It is an excellent runner and the details from the bogies to the lights are outstanding, as is the finish. It looks at home with the many Accurascale nuclear wagons - PFAs, FNA-Ds, and KUAs. If you model DRS, this is a 'must have' loco.


                  Superb as ever

                  DRS fade livery

                  Finally getting to write my review of this fantastic loco and livery, and what a winner both livery and loco are, I think a lot of people were really looking forward to 37609 and Accurascale certainly did not disappoint. Well done everyone.
