The arrival of 66001 on to British soil at 08:53 on the 18th of Aprill 1998 heralded a new dawn for British rail freight, the first of several hundred locomotives of a type that would revolutionise Railfreight across the UK (and Europe). There were a few subtle differences between the first two and the rest of the production batch which have never been replicated before on a model. Firstly the lashing eyes to secure the locomotive to the ship were in a different position to later models. The horn grille was also mounted almost flush with the body. Visually 66001 looked more striking owing to its red grilles which were later changed to black.

Our Class 66 model is based on the award winning ‘accura-standard’ platform, with all-wheel powered six-axle bogies, a powerful twin flywheel fitted motor and market leading electronics package.

Class 66 (66001)

This is the second Class 66 Diesel I have purchased from Accurascale, and as with the first model, the level of detail is superb. The colour scheme is very impressive. There was a slight issue with Royal Mail in that they lost my parcel in transit, but having contacted Accurascale this issue was resolved. Consequently, the delivery time was longer than expected (three and half weeks).

Wonderful model

I have several of the Hattons Sheds and I was keen to see the results of the Accurascale magic wand - and I was not not surprised. Excellent detail and a superb model in every way. Will Accurascale be selling any 'upgrade' parts for the old Hattons model? I hope it is possible!

Another Class 66 Review

Accurascale does it again 💪🏻

Another absolutely stunning model from accurascale! They are seriously pushing the standards of modelling through the roof! Roll on the class 50s & 60s now! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


Just AMAZING truly the best class 66 produced by far.

Top quality model.

Class 66

Still boxed up ,new layout getting set up


Wow, Accurascale, the punked up Hatton's models are superb. The body livery colours of the EWS are bright and bold. Chrisp edges and fine lining are prevalent all around the locomotive. The detailing, well, what can I say, Accurascale really do put a lot of effort into their releases. A look along the sole bar at the fine cable/conduits etx are outstanding, as is the norm from the company. With so much detail to look at, they are an impressive model loco to see. The Class 66s are defaintly not the first and last to come from Accurascale's warehouses in the future.

Exclusive EWS class 66001

Blown away once again with another high standard model from my favorite model railway company!!!
You nailed it with these class 66s 👌⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Looks and runs perfect on both my club exhibition layout at Merseyside model railway society and home layout Colmoretraction👍👍

Even on Dc this is a remarkable loco, probably as good as it gets and for a very reasonable price. The effort Accurascale make on their exclusive locomotives and rolling stock just makes it a bit more special. Well done.
