3813 Running at GRITH
05 May 2017


NSWGR 'C38'


Our 3813 with a ceramic gas burner made its debut at GRITH last weekend. With a rake of 8 large bogie wagons in tow it was wonderful to be able to hold such a powerful and responsive loco on the very limit of its traction while starting the train from a standing start on an oily track, then to gradually adjust the throttle to accelerate the train to express speeds. I later learnt that the guards van at the end of the train had a 6volt lead acid motorcycle battery in it to give added weight. This loco just delivers the most amazing driving experience. It is so responsive to the touch through the RC on the regulator.





It's here...
24 April 2017


NSWGR 'C38'


Accucraft have done it again. First it was the Victorian Railways 'Na' class Puffing Billy modelled to perfection, now it's the magnificent NSWGR 'C38'. Here it is as 3813 with a ceramic gas burner. It takes time to achieve this level of detail, scale and performance. We'll be running it this weekend at 'GRITH' (Garden Railways in the Hunter) then showing it at the Brisbane Model Railway Exhibition the following weekend.

    ARGYLE / ACCUCRAFT NSWGR 'C38' 4-6-2

    ARGYLE / ACCUCRAFT NSWGR 'C38' 4-6-2


    Good things take a while. Producing a sample model of an important locomotive like the C38 is not just a matter of having something 'to show'. It is an elongated process that takes teamwork to reproduce every item of detail and performance of the real locomotive. The pilot model must also satisfy and prove every part of the engineering process that will be required to manufacture it. Our pilot model of the C38 will soon be ready but we will only show it when we are satisfied that it is a true representation of both the real C38 and the production models.

    We have now come sufficiently along the process to declare that the Argyle / Accucraft model of the C38 will be available from A$ 4,860 inclusive of GST.

    The C38 is progressing well and is on track to display shortly. Gordon Watson has just returned from a week at the factory working with the design crew to perfect the mechanical design. With original design and research by David Fletcher the model is being developed with the same exactness and attention to detail as the Argyle 'NA' Puffing Billy model. Two firing options are being offered for the live steam model - Alcohol or Butane Gas with a ceramic burner. The model will embody several operating features unique to the prototype that have not yet been seen in commercial models in this scale. Standard to the model will be working cylinder drain cocks, axle driven water pump with bypass valve, tender hand pump, water level sight glass, pressure gauge, a functioning firebox door for light up and an opening smoke box door. Price and production delivery will be announced with pilot model. Production to begin early in 2016.

    Baldwin Steam Tram
    28 September 2015



    Baldwin Steam Tram


    Sydney's famous steam tramway system employed small standard gauge Baldwin 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotives hidden under wooden tramway cabs. Several models of trams have been done in the narrow gauge scales of 1:19 and thereabouts but no commercial model has been produced in 1:32 scale. The Argyle model will make an interesting addition to the Gauge One collection, offering an appealing balance to the much larger and faster models normally associated with the scale.
