Revolution Trains is once again at The Internatonal N Gauge Show at the Warwickshire Exhibtion Centre this weekend, on stand 16.
It’s our fourth year at the show which has established itself as the premier calendar event for N Gauge enthusiasts, and the obvious place to take stock and look to the future with new announcements and suggestions.
The last 12 months have been very rewarding for Revolution as we delivered our much-admired Class 390 Pendolino (with Rapido Trains) and our first model aimed at the transition era modeller – the well received Class B 35T tankers. We have also enjoyed increasing take-up of our ongoing crowdfunding projects as more modellers see the potential in this approach for obtaining niche models that may otherwise be uviable for the mainstream manufacturers.
Our IZA Cargowaggon twin vans have just arrived, while the 00 TEA tankers are in the final stages of production and we are expecting to close the order book very soon on our KFA container flats and Class 92 electric locomotives.
This all gives us the confidence to increase the ambition and scale of our operations. At TINGS we will be offering up five all new models, including our first non-crowdfunded wagon.
They are the Class 128 Parcels DMU, 20′ tank containers (with C-Rail Intermodal), IPA car carriers, Cemflo wagons (with Accurascale) and VEA vans.
We will also be offering new runs of our Class 390 Pendolino in Virgin’s new white livery, and the award-winning TEA tankers in new liveries and as reruns.
The VEA is being produced by Sonic Models, a new company set up by a former Kader engineer and not crowdfunded.
To publicise all this we are also producing our first “catalogue”, though actually it’s just a folded colour A4 brochure, but we are still very excited about it!
We would like to thank everyone who has supported us and helped us to make this happen.
In celebration of this, and reflecting Revolution’s ambitious plans, our first ever “catalogue” will also be available to collect at the show. This features all our ongoing projects and offers our supporters a good way of tracking our progress.
In reality, our first catalogue is just a folded A4 leaflet, but we are proud of it and we hope our supporters will enjoy browsing and considering which of our projects they may wish to support.
We would like to thank everyone who has supported us and helped make this happen.
During the day we will be adding more detailed information about these planned items, and over the coming weeks opening the order books – but please remember that, with the exception of the VEA van, while we have done preparatory work they all need orders to move from dreams to reality!
And if you can’t come and see us at the N Gauge Show, we will be at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition at the NEC in November!
