Product Information

Product Description

We are proud to present the iconic Quarry Hunslet as the launch locomotive for the new Bachmann Narrow Gauge NG7 Scale range. Depicting ‘Margaret’, built originally for the Penrhyn Quarry but now a popular performer at the Vale of Rheidol Railway, this new model builds on the success of the smaller, award-winning Bachmann Narrow Gauge OO9 scale cousin. The larger NG7 scale affords a higher level of detail, along with an enhanced technical specification which includes a Next18 DCC decoder socket, pre-fitted speaker and firebox lighting system – which comes into full effect when the hinged firebox door is posed in the open position.

With a diecast metal chassis and gearbox, coupled with a precision moulded plastic bodyshell, cylinder block, frames and footplate, the 0-4-0ST wheel formation is faithfully modelled, with authentically profiled wheels running in metal bearings which ensures smooth running. A wealth of separately fitted detail parts complete the model, including handrails, valves, springs, brake shoes and cab controls. All of this is finished with a high-fidelity livery application, using the latest techniques to capture every aspect of the prototype’s decoration. Coupling solutions provided with this new NG7 model include two types of chopper coupling and the hook and loop type used on Bachmann Narrow Gauge OO9 scale models – all of which attach via the NEM coupling pockets.
