This is great news for Garden Railway types. I was a huge fan of the Archangel coal-fired Baldwin but being a broke student in those days (as opposed to a broke farmer these days!) could never have afforded one. Funnily the Accucraft price is close to the 1979 Archangel price.... Please note folks that the Baldwin is going to be either 32mm or 45mm guage - being inside framed it is not going to be possible to have a gauge adjustable version.


The L & B bogie vehicles will be useful additions but the IOM stock is really looking good. After the 2-4-0s "Caledonia" is a great choice and the selection of the 4-wheelers will allow Accucraft to do what the IOM did - bolt two together on a bogie underframe!


Oh, and of course there's the Gauge One "Scotsman".....

Maybe I should put a "bib" warning on such posts! I hope you enlarged the images - the model is gorgeous in the flesh as well.....
