Accucraft Trains in association with KGR are pleased to announce this new locomotive in 7/8ths” to the foot (1:13.7) scale live steam.  

Kerr Stuart produced 163 ‘Wren’ type locomotives before they ceased trading in 1930 and a further four were constructed thereafter by Hunslets. The ‘Wrens’ owe their origin to the ‘Buya’ class of 1903 although the type encompassed a huge number of variations including inside and outside frames and inside and outside valve gear. Our model is based on the 2’ gauge ‘new type’ developed in 1915 with inside frames, Hackworth valve gear and cast-iron wheels fitted with steel tyres. A few ‘early’ type ‘Wrens’ survive around the world and half a dozen ‘late types’ have been preserved, five of them in the UK.

The model is internally gas fired and has slide valve cylinders with working Hackworth valve gear. The boiler is fitted with a water gauge with blow down valve, lubricator and pressure gauge. It will be available in 45mm gauge (gauge 1) only.
