Accurascale Bags Manufacturer of The Year and OO Rolling Stock of The Year Gongs At Hornby Mag Awards!
Thank you! Thank you to everyone who came to see us at the Great Electric Train Show over the weekend. Thank you for your feedback on our latest model samples, including the Deltics, 92s, 37s and Manors, to our Mark 5s, HAAs, Chaldrons and Irish Metrovick locomotives!
It was wonderful being back at a show once again, albeit in a smaller presence than usual. We will however be back with our main stand at shows in 2022!
On Saturday evening after the show two most unexpected things happened.
Our monster KUA nuclear flask wagons fended off some very strong competition (including our own tippler and JSA steel wagons) to take home the "Best OO Carriage or Wagon of The Year" prize in the 2021 Hornby Magazine Awards. We were simply blown away that we finished top of the class in a very competitive field.
We thought we were done receiving awards for the evening, perfectly content that our nuclear beasts had hit a sweet spot for so many modellers across the hobby.
But no, you only went and voted for us as your "Manufacturer of the Year!"
To say we are gobsmacked is an understatement! We are humbled that you saw us fit to receive such an award. For a company who are just over four years in the market we are amazed that what we do has resonated with so many of you. We have put a lot of hard work in over the past four and a half years, but it would be for nothing without you, our customers, supporting us.
Thank you so much for your votes, for showing us that we are on the right path and doing the right things to serve you. We know we dont always get everything right (ahem, delays!) but we work tirelessly to ensure you get the very best models possible for your layout or collection.
So, from all the team here at IRM/Accurascale, thank you very much for your support and recognition. Now we must push on, deliver more great models at reasonable prices, and try and stay in top spot in 2022!
