New Accurascale Exclusive Announcement - Enparts Siphon G Van
Our Siphon G bogie vans are progressing well through development, with tooling amendments from feedback on the first sample now complete and decorated samples are beginning to arrive from the factory.
The first decorated sample to arrive from the factory is our new "Accurascale Exclusive" announcement, ADB975784 (ex-1006) in the classic "ENPARTS" livery!
(Look out for the revealing of the rest of the decorated Siphon G vans in the coming weeks. They're looking pretty special...)
Converted for Enparts use in 1978, ADB975784 was one of a squadron of at least 24 Siphon G vans used by the Western Region for transporting spare parts for locomotives and rolling stock from Swindon to the larger Motive Power Depots.
They soldered on in service until 1985, making them a favourite pre-nationalisation favourite of the corporate blue era. Our latest "Accurascale Exclusive" covers the Siphon in this condition, suitably modified and decorated for this traffic, including blocking off of the gangways and vents as well as receiving the Enparts livery of green with suitable markings.
A firm favourite with enthusiasts of this era, it seemed the perfect addition to our "Accurascale Exclusives" range of limited edition models available only direct via the Accurascale website.
Delivery is slated for late Q4 2022/Q1 2023 and can be ordered below for a price of £54.95 inc postage and packaging to the UK and Ireland, with 10% off when you buy two or more. Early pre-ordering is advised to avoid disappointment!
