Quick Look | OO9 Scale Quarry Hunslets

Last modified date

Bachmann Narrow Gauge OO9 Scale Quarry Hunslets Break Cover!

We recently unveiled the first Engineering Samples of the highly anticipated Bachmann Narrow Gauge OO9 Scale Quarry Hunslet locomotives in the Autumn 2021 Bachmann Times magazine, and we’re delighted to share these with you now. Barely larger than a 9V battery, these diminutive locomotives still pack a punch with their diecast boiler and running plate, accompanied by a wealth of separately fitted details including handrails, valves, springs, brake shoes and cab controls. The 0-4-0T wheel formation is faithfully modelled, with authentically-profiled wheels running in metal bearings ensuring smooth running, powered by a coreless motor with flywheel, and with a 6 Pin DCC decoder socket for those wishing to use the models with a DCC system. NEM coupling pockets feature at both ends, into which standard OO9 scale couplings are fitted.

Four models will be available initially, each unique with detail variants (some obvious, others not so) to accurately capture the character of each of the chosen prototypes. Etched name plates and builders plates will also be included with the finished models. (please note these photos show the first engineering prototypes which are subject to change with improvements to be made
