Revolution is delighted to be supporting Project Railway Honour
This ambitious scheme will see Freightliner unveiling one of their Class 66 locomotives in a new “Genessee and Wyoming” version of the PowerHaul livery, and giving it the name “Patriot” to commemorate the centenary of WW1.
Dapol have agreed to issue 250 N-gauge models of this locomotive soon afterward, and proceeds from these models will go to the ABF – The Soldier’s Charity.
The project is the brainchild of Corporal Gareth Atkinson who is also planning similar events next year, to raise money for Royal Navy charities, and in 2018, the centenary of the end of WW1, for the Royal Air Force.
If you are interested in supporting this project please follow the link above. Note that images of the new locomotive, its distinctive nameplate and other details of the prototype and the model will be added after the naming ceremony.
