Revolution Trains, with our friends at Rapido Trains, are delighted and proud to have been named “N Gauge Manufacturer of the Year” in the annual poll of readers of Model Rail magazine.
The award caps an amazing year for us, in which we were also named N gauge manufacturer of the year in the recent BRM/RM Web awards too.
And it’s double-bubble for us as our Revolution/Rapido Class 390 Pendolino in N has been voted as N gauge model of the year too!
As ever we’d like to thank Rapido for all their hard work on this project – from showing faith at the start to going above and beyond to develop not just a thrilling new model but also a unique coupler design and numerous all-new features such as working table lamps in first class cars and detachable coupler covers to allow prototypical “drags” for those who don’t have catenary.
And of course we would also very much like to thank everyone who voted for us, and pay tribute to the other nominees who produced fine models in what has been a wonderful year for British N.
IF you were unlucky enough to miss out on this gorgeous model first time round, as production is limited, we plan to produce some more soon in Virgin’s new flowing silk colours – now applied to much of the fleet – including the striking Virgin Pride rainbow scheme.
