The new CADs incorporate improvements to the windscreen area, front air dam and also feature interiors.

There are a few further refinmenents required.  Once the CADs are approved we will be ready to move to tooling.  At this time we would encourage anyone interested in this model who has not already pre-ordered to sign up.

PENDOLINO PROGRESS

Rapido are making more progress on the Class 390 Pendolino models which are now in production and still scheduled for delivery toward the end of the summer.

This image from a couple of weeks ago shows power cars awaiting their final black and white passes and then tampo printing and assembly.

 

PATRIOT DELIVERIES

Project Railway Honour class 66 pre-production sample

The Dapol model of Class 66 66418 “Patriot” which is raising money for ABF the Soldiers’ charity through Project Railway Honour has proved remarkably popular.  As well as providing web hosting and an ordering interface, Revolution Trains stepped in to send out these models when Gareth, the man behind the project, was deployed overseas.

Unfortunaely, the recent arrival of the Class 92 sample and Class 321 CAD drawings, along with our attendance at the DEMU Showcase last weekend, has meant that there have been delays in sending out orders lodged in the last few weeks.

These will be sent out as soon as possible and we would ask supporters of Project Railway Honour to bear with us.
