CAD work has been completed on the forthcoming N gauge Caledonian Sleeper Mk5 coaches being produced by Revolution Trains in association with Accurascale.
The coaches are now in squadron service with Caledonian Sleeper, on both Lowlander trains from London to Glasgow and Edinburgh and Highlander trains from London to Aberdeen, Inverness and Fort William.
There are four different types of vehicle in the fleet, and our models will replicate each.
Each train leaving Euston comprises 16 vehicles, in two 8-car sets. Standard sleepers form the majority of the fleet, with 9 in each 16-car service.
There are three accessible sleepers in the rake – two in one half-set and one in the other.
There are also two club cars, with distinctive wi-if dome, and two seated cars in every train.
As ever, Revolution and Accurascale have not skimped on the underframes and these will feature numerous separate parts. We understand tooling has started and we are looking forward to reporting on progress following the Chinese New Year shutdown.
Revolution is offering the Caledonian Sleeper Mk5s in multi-packs configured to allow complete, accurate formations to be recreated of the full train, or the “split” portions that run within Scotland to their final destinations.
The TPE Mk5 CADs are already approved, and will go to tooling at the same time.
You can order all versions here at our great early bird price.
Revolution Trains would like to thank Caledonian Sleeper, Serco, Scottish Ministers and Beacon Rail for their kind assistance in producing these models.
