Model Rail / KMRC News


We, Model Rail, and Heljan have joined forces and are pleased to announce a ready-to-run Class 97/6 in OO gauge - better known as the 'PWM'!


Five Ruston & Hornsby 0‑6‑0DEs were ordered by the Western Region for use in replacing 60ft track panels with continuously welded rail. They were designed so that they could be hauled from depots to work sites in permanent way trains where the traction motor would be re-engaged to enable them to shunt wagons. The ‘PWMs’ were never part of the capital stock list and were only ever allocated to Departmental duties. EWS withdrew the final two, 97651 and 97654, in 1998.

Our tooling will only cover PWM651-654 (97651-97654), which were delivered in 1959. The pioneer, PWM650 (97650), built in 1953, had smaller wheels and other differences.

The tooling is being split three ways:

---> Model Rail will offer pristine versions in five liveries.
---> Kernow Model Rail Centre will offer weathered versions of the Model Rail liveries.
---> Heljan will produce versions in industrial‑inspired colour schemes, which are still to be confirmed.

Work has already started. Paul and Peter (don't fly away!)  Martin graciously allowed Model Rail’s Richard Foster and Heljan’s Ben Jones to measure and photograph their PWM651 at the Swindon & Cricklade Railway in mid-August.

Final specifications have yet to be finalised, but it’s hoped that the ‘PWM’ will have a Next18 DCC decoder socket, factory‑fitted speaker, working spot lamps and interior lights (as well as marker lights, where applicable).

Prices have yet to be confirmed and we’ll let you know when the order book opens! It is hoped that the ‘PWM’ will hit the shelves in early 2021 but we will keep you updated on progress and when the pre-order books open! Visit our dedicated page by clicking here.

Things You Didn't Know You Didn't Know (or maybe you did?!)

Since writing about the wonderful Narwhal a few weeks ago I have become particulary fond of the creature! I am also shocked at how many people do not believe they exist until I show them a photo! There are some other creatures out there that are also hard to believe exist - especially when you see a photo of them! So if you get a chance later today do a little search on the following...
The Glaucus Atlanticus. The Venezuelan Poodle Moth. The Bush Viper. The Indian Purple Frog. The Red-lipped Batfish. The Panda Ant. The Atretochoana Eiselti (or more fondly known as, and I have to admit that I feel rather rude writing this, the Penis Snake...).
