First time with live steam?


If you are getting your first live steam locomotive there are a few other bits you will need.

You will need special steam cylinder oil for your loco and also a 'gas can adaptor' that screws on the top of your gas can to enable you to transfer the gas to the gas tank on your loco. You will find these on our page 'Live Steam Workshop Items'.

You can get gas cans from your local DIY store, either pure Butane or a Butane/Propane mix. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES USE PURE PROPANE. Look for the cans with a screw fitting on the top. If using a mix gently upend the can a few times before filling your loco to ensure the gasses have not separated out otherwise you could get a shot of pure Propane.

Next take a look inside your kettle. If the element is clean and shiny then your are probably in a soft water area and you should be OK using tap water. If there is any furring up then the same would happen to your loco. If so you should collect rainwater and filter out any debris (coffee or wine filters are good) or use distilled water. Water from a dehumidifier is also good.

Accucraft live steam locomotives are not children's toys, they are designed for age 18 and over. Please read the instructions that come with your loco BEFORE (!) using it for the first time, and if in doubt ask.

A lot of users have found joining a club or association very rewarding, great for help and advice as well as many new friendships to be made. You may well find Garden Rail magazine useful to kep up to date with the latest happenings in the hobby.

Technical Specification & Warranty



All Accucraft models are covered by a two year manufacturers warranty on parts and labour, as long as they are cared for and operated according to the comprehensive instructions provided. The warranty does not cover neglect, misuse, or general wear and tear.

To ensure you are covered by the warranty it is important when taking delivery of a new loco you fill in and return the warranty registration card to Accucraft UK.

For all warranty repairs, please contact us in the first instance. We will liaise with Accucraft UK who will then arrange with UK customers for the item to be collected by their couriers. Overseas customers will either need to arrange shipping of the item to and from the UK at their cost, or arrange for work to be done locally with parts supplied by Accucraft.

To make shipping easier in the unlikely event of your locomotive having to be sent for service, please retain ALL original packaging. Accucraft do not carry spare boxes in stock to return your model to you. If improperly packed by you to be sent to them, they cannot be responsible for any damage.

Most models are built from stainless steel, brass, and copper. With correct maintenance the engines will give a lifetime of pleasure.

The dimensions given are approximate only, we do not guarantee that any particular model will fit a customers loading gauge, due to variations in track profiles and curve radius. The colours shown in the illustrations are representations only and are subject to printing variations.

In particular we strongly recommend you check the minimum radius a locomotive is capable of negotiating before making a purchase. What is the minimum radius of your railway?
