Sonic Model N Class J50

Posted by Oliver Davies on

Sonic Models have shared early production sample images of the forthcoming N Gauge Class J50!

As you can see the model is progressing very nicely, with further samples expected soon.

Please note: As always with production samples various amendments, alterations and tweaks happen before production fully gets underway. The purpose of these samples are to identify issues. Therefore please do not regard these images as final production models.

The LNER workhorse is next locomotive in N from Sonic Models.

Sonic Models are offering the distinctive LNER/BR(E) J50 0-6-0 tank locomotive, as their next N gauge powered model.

The model is being developed by Sonic Models in conjunction with Revolution Trains.

The Sonic Models J50 is based on the Group Standard design known as J50/3 (with steam brakes) and J50/4 (with vacuum brakes) and features a host of detail variations including GNR or LNER buffers, open or plated coal rails, plain or fluted coupling rods and raised or flush Ross pop valves.

The models all feature a similar drive to Sonic’s popular GWR 56xx as well as a detailed backhead in the cab and 6-pin DCC socket arranged such that a 90° decoder will ensure that the chip is largely hidden in normal use.

Models are expected Q2 2022.

The models are available to pre-order exclusively from Rails of Sheffield, who have been appointed the exclusive retailer.

The models are priced at £109.95, Pre-order now with just a £20 deposit
