Release of Adams Radial OR76AR001

29th June 2015

We've just returned from a great weekend at the Bluebell Railway, custodians of the full size Preserved Adams Radial steam loco. It was a chance to compare our models with the real full sized version!

Work continues apace with the above picture showing a engineering sample which has been tested for running qualities over the last few weeks.

(It's a bit battered after a lot of handling, so please excuse a few knocks and bumps!) The model body is a combination of several  tooling options and does not represent a specific loco from the class.

The first examples of the models in the correct body styles for  each of the first three versions were received and also on display - they're now being carefully checked by our research team for accuracy and further enhancements.

Whilst we await the pictures of those versions, here is some of the artwork we are working with:


  OR76AR001         BR Late Livery No 30583
  OR76AR002         BR Early Livery 30584
  OR76AR003         LSWR 488
20th January 2015 The development continues apace. We are seeing some first shots of the Adams and we are still on target for showing producing samples in April. I have just left the factory and can confirm that all test systems are in place to my satisfaction. It will retail at £99.95 and the first liveries will be:


BR Late 30583


BR Early 30584


LSWR 488

For some years the development team at 'Oxford' have been examining the possibilities of producing accurate and detailed models for the UK model railway market and have now decided that the time is right to launch the first model, under the Oxford Rail banner. 

The first 00 scale Oxford locomotive will be the much admired Adams Radial 4-4-2T Class 415 of the London and South Western Railway. This new Oxford division will not just release random locomotives, however; a detailed plan of future releases is already in place. 

CEO Lyndon Davies explains, "I, along with my development team, have for several years been closely monitoring the model railway field, especially in the UK. I now believe that the time is right for Oxford Rail to enter the market, but I am not interested in just introducing the occasional locomotive model. We have a rolling planned introduction program based on extensive market research, as well as talking to (and listening to) railway modellers. I am determined that Oxford Rail will be judged on the integrity and the quality of our models that we will be offering. Our first exciting model is the Adams Radial, Class 415 designed by William Adams in 1882 for the London and South Western Railway. It continued in service with the Southern Railway and British Railways. Although the intention was to withdraw these locos by 1929, three remained in service on the Lyme Regis branch line until 1962, and one survived on the Bluebell Railway. 

More new model railway items will be announced in the near future, not all of them locomotives. First shots of the  Adams radial will be available in the first quarter of 2015". 

The Oxford Rail website www.oxfordrail.com is now active, with updates on new introductions and their development. All enthusiasts and modellers will be invited to comment. Oxford Rail products will be available through all good hobby shops and specialist outlets.

Further announcements will be made soon, but for now Oxford Rail is now open for business; the business of providing excellent quality models.
