Award winning OO Gauge Beattie Well Tank - further models announced for delivery towards the end of 2014!
We own the tooling for the LSWR (SR) Beattie Well Tank 2-4-0WT in OO gauge. Associated for many years with the Wenfordbridge branch while based at Wadebridge these models were commissioned in response to customer demand and each model is unique with all having the differences of the prototype.
This model was initially designed using the very accurate ‘Laser’ scanning technology with the original scan taking place at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre in 2009.
Following many requests we have decided to produce two more versions of our award-winning Beattie Well Tank models. We will be using the same upgraded coreless motor that will be incorporated into our Adams O2 models and the economies of scale from this mean we can keep the price of this batch of Well Tanks to £94.99 for pre-orders. The Well Tank will be produced in the same factory and by the same people in China as previously, which is also the same factory producing our Adams O2 models. We will be making these Well Tank models to order and guarantee to supply every order placed by 31st August this year. At this stage we will decide on the final quantity to be produced but there will be at least 250 of each version. As always, no deposits are required and we do not charge for the models until we are about to despatch the orders. We will be offering DCC Fitted versions which will have the Gaugemaster DCC 23 Decoder fitted. We expect delivery by the end of this year and as soon as the models are on the way to us the price will rise to £99.99 for new orders.
