Is my research correct in saying that all of these are designed for a track gauge of 45mm? If so I'm very excited.


What sort of minimum radius is suggested for the Black 5 and A4?

QUOTE I assume the radius will be the same as the A3 they just released

I'd go along with that. I did look at the Accucraft.com website but made the mistake (?) of looking in the Gauge 1 section rather than the UK Models section lower down. The UK website doesn't feature the A3 yet.

Sorry to take a while replying re scale / gauge. This is how the Accucraft UK stuff works.

1:32 scale is Gauge 1 - 45mm

1:19 stuff is usually gauge adjustable, 45 or 32mm with either wheels that slide on the axles (locomotives) or alternative wheelsets (rolling stock)- the exception is the lovely WD Baldwin which is available "either / or" because it is an inside frame prototype. Even the multi-wheeled Garratts are gauge adjustable (grab the last ones while you can, only two retailers still have stock!).

1:20.3 (15mm scale) IOM rolling stock will be adjustable but the electric locos in this scale are set at 45mm for a true 3' appearance.
