Following on from our popular pair of existing battery electrics, we have 5 additional kits in development with an additional 1 planned. BME-003 Bowaters Paper Railway Bagnall ‘Superb’, BME-004 Monson Railroad Number 3, BME-005 RNAD 60hp Diesel, BME-006 South African Railways Class 91 and BME-007 Bowaters Paper Railway Hudson Hunslet ‘Victor’ are all in current development with plans to have two of them available soon. All 5 kits are designed to run with our existing BMB, BMP and BMS ranges plus our upcoming BMR range in the case of the Forney. All 5 kits are 16mm scale and are designed to operate on both 32mm and 45mm gauges. Both use a multimedia approach to build them. Full specifications are to be confirmed for all of the models however they will be similar to our current range available now. The specification for BME-005, BME-006 and BME-007 promises to be our best and highest specification yet and are all due during 2019. BME-003 and BME-004 have no expected release dates at present.

The South African Railways Class 91 was a class of 2ft gauge diesel built for operation on the Avontuur line out of Port Elizabeth in the eastern cape. These engines at first operated alongside then replaced the Beyer Garratts which were then sent to work on Natal. Until recently, most of the class survived however in recent times, a number have been scrapped with a number surviving into preservation. It features laser cut construction, 3D printed sections and plenty of etched detail! It’s suitable for 32mm gauge and 45mm gauge. The engine features PDF Models power units and comes complete with Accucraft Chopper Couplings as standard! Its due to be released in late 2019.
