Accurascale is to release a new addition to their OO/1:76 range of Deltic with a Class 55 runing for Irish Railways
”New Accurascale Exclusive Announcement! The Irish Deltic!
We are delighted to announce a new addition to our Class 55 Deltic range, the little known Irish Deltic! After English Electric delivered the 22 production Deltics to British Railways, CIE, the Irish transport authority, contacted English Electric with a view to converting the design to 5ft 3 gauge for evaluation purposes.
English Electric duly obliged and D3333 was delivered to Dublin a year later. In honour of the class and their association with famous horses, CIE named the locomotive after the most famous horse in the land. The locomotive was duly tested on services to the west of Ireland, including the famous 'Craggy Island Express', which is faithfully replicated on our model with appropriate headcode display.
Very few photos of this locomotive survive, but we are delighted to offer it in OO gauge form as part of our Accurascale exclusives range. Price for DCC sound is £333.33 and is strictly limited to 333 pieces.
Order today!”
