Revolution Trains is teaming up with highly-regarded new modelmakers Accurascale to offer the PCV “Cemflo” wagon in N gauge.
The wagons were built for Associated Portland Cement Manufacturers (APCM) and introduced in 1961, lasting in service until 1988.
They were famously associated with the long-distance flow between Uddingston, near Glasgow, and Cliffe in Kent but were also widely used elsewhere by Blue Circle.
The models will be available in both pre- and post-TOPS liveries, with several different running numbers.
The Cemflo is Revolution’s third wagon aimed squarely at the popular Transition Era and follows our well-received Class B tankers and forthcoming Sturgeon engineer’s flat, and reflects Revolutions enthusiasm for collaborating with other manufacturers to bring models produced in other scales to N gauge enthusaiasts.
Accurascale have made a big impact on the 00 market since launching their first model, the HUO hopper, and their 4mm Cemflo is already well underway. This CAD rendering shows the 00 model, and we anticipate as far as possible similar levels of detailing in the N gauge model:
We believe this model will offer customers not just an interesting and distinctive model, equally at home behind steam or diesel traction, but also the chance to bring an exciting new manufacturer into the N gauge fraternity.
If successful we look forward to further collaborations with Accurascale, but as ever we need supporters to step forward and order to ensure this model proceeds.
