Our first ever release under the Ellis Clark Trains banner was the iconic Presflo wagon. Any first project is a challenge and the Presflo was just that. The detailing, variations, and the fact it was to be our first model to hit the market, meant there was plenty on the line. Nevertheless, the Presflos hit the market in March 2022 and went on to win every award they were nominated for, a total of four to date, as below.
Model Rail - Model of the Year 2022
Jenny Kirk Choice Award 2022 Rolling Stock of the Year - O Gauge Presflo Cement Wagons
British Railway Modelling Awards 2022 - Gold Award
The perfect wagon to run both in a block, or mixed freight train, the Presflo - of which many of us have built one from the Airfix kit, continues to be something which we are very closely associated with here at Ellis Clark Trains.
"The models feature a wealth of detail, from the retaining lugs of the roof hatches to the various handrail and lamp brackets."
"From seeing CAD images of these models prior to their arrival, you get a feel for expected levels of detail and the specification, but with them in hand, I can safely say that these have been surpassed."
World of Railways
"These wagons ooze detail throughout."
Key Model World
"These are possibly the finest ready-to-run wagons yet seen in O gauge."
