Oxford Rail Update March 2024

Oxford Rail Update March 2024

For those of you who attended Warley Model Rail Show in November 2023, will know that we featured some first shots of the J26. We also had a 3D print of the much anticipated Cowans & Sheldon 15t Crane. Here we are updating you on the progress of development. .


Current Stage

We have just finalised the CAD for our tooling amendments and we are now looking forward to receiving new samples. We have reworked this product to ensure that it is produced accurately to a high standard.

Once we have received the latest samples, we will make any necessary amendments before moving to production.

Below – 3D render of all four versions of the J26, (Left to right OR76J26001, OR76J26002, OR76J26003 and OR76J26004).

Very interested and wating for LMS Crane project. Also waiting for the LNER J26

Stuart Levett - April 19, 2024

We need more British 1/43 scale trucks. 1940,s to 90,s. All producers make American and European trucks in this scale but no British. (there are a few Ixo ) in 1950,s 60,s 70.s there was an abundance of British manufacturers, loads of subject matter. Many thanks Stuart Levett

Chris Marshall - March 31, 2024

Stamina is what ultimately enables us to win our individual ‘wars’… one battle at a time.
All the very best to you Taff, and keep on fighting.
All the best from Bumble

Alan Featonby - March 30, 2024

Alec Revitt - March 15, 2024

Very interested in the crane. Unfortunately was unable to register my interest because the link did not work

Peter Thomas Smith - March 15, 2024

As a modeller of the Great Central and Great Northern in the East Midlands a J6 0-6-0 would be a welcome addition to my fleet of loco’s as they were a common sight on Derby to Grantham passenger services and many other duties.

Roger G - March 15, 2024
