Our ‘Wickham Warrior’. A charming, likeable and minute model.
The design, testing and engineering to create a self propelled model of this size, all while keeping the maximum amount of detailing was by no means an easy task. Alas, this award winning model hit the market in March 2023 and continues to be a popular means of transportation for model figures on many layouts!
Hornby Magazine Awards 2023 - Best 'O' Gauge Locomotive of the Year
"It has succeeded, even exceeded expectations."
"Ellis Clark deserves to be applauded for bringing to the market what must be one of the smallest motorised O gauge ready-to-run models to date."
"If there's a prize to be won for the smallest RTR model of 2023 in 7mm:1ft scale/O gauge, this new release from Ellis Clark Trains surely takes first place. Cramming a mechanism that can provide reliable traction under the small vehicle - adding a sound decoder, and speaker - is a significant accomplishment."
"For such a small and open model it is incredible that the mechanism for the Wickham Inspection Trolley has been completely hidden from view. On our test track we were totally impressed by the performance of these models. Both ran faultlessly straight from the box and the DCC sound version is even more enthralling as it offers engine sound with gear changes, horns, staff communications and even ambient sounds such as birdsong and a distant dog barking."
Key Model World
"In summary, Ellis Clark Trains has produced a little gem of a model. The range of Presflo wagons set a very high standard for ready to run models. The Wickham Trolley shows that these very high standards are being maintained."
