Revolution Trains has completed CAD work on its forthcoming Class A tank wagon and the order book is open – just click on Shop to place an order. As ever the pre-order price will offer our supporters the best value.
This model is aimed at steam/diesel transition and BR blue era enthusiasts and shares a chassis with our award-winning Class B tanker. The main difference is the longer barrel, used because the Class A tank was used for lighter fraction petro-chemicals.
The first version will be the ever-popular original Esso version with original suspension, single top vent and top discharge.
In addition, the tooling is designed to allow for the alternate arrangement fitted to later versions of revised suspension supports and slightly different top details.
The line up of models being offered is as follows:
Please note that these graphic images are representative and are not the final artwork. The mock ups do not represent the exact detail variations.
In addition several Class A tanks were purchased by the Chipman chemical company and were used from the mid-60s to late-80s in their weedkiller train. We have yet to finalise the branding for the weedkiller tanks and which liveries will be offered.
More Class Bs
Revolution is also proposing another run of its Class B tankers, with new running numbers. The final line-up of possible liveries is yet to be confirmed, though we are sure Esso and Unbranded versions shown above will feature.
In response to customer feedback, we will also be reducing the weight of these wagons by about a third.
