Revolution Trains would like to wish all our customers, retailers, model railway press and fellow enthusiasts a very Merry Xmas and prosperous and happy New Year, and thank everyone for their support in the year gone by.
Rapido Trains have sent us the first deco samples of our forthcoming Class 92 locomotives. These are nearing the end of production now, with just the sound files to be completed, and we are anticipating that these models will be completed before Chinese New Year.
Around three quarters of the our PFA/KFA container flats have been sent out; we will resume dispatch of these models after a short Christmas break. Apologies if you’re among those who have not received their models yet, but they will be with you soon!
Also, please note that models 22102/22402 (KFA Tiphook with VNH1 bogies) are supplied, correctly, with blue bogies, not the black as listed on our website.
The Sturgeons arrived a few days ago, and the first few of these were sent just before Christmas; work packing and posting the remainder will also resume soon.
Also en route from China are our HOA hoppers, and customers who have pre-ordered and paid for these can expect deliveries to begin in mid-January.
The IPA Car Carriers are now ready for production and this should commence immediately after the forthcoming Chinese New Year. This means we will be closing the order book towards the end of January, so if you are interested in acquiring these models at the pre-order price please make your selections now, or very soon.
Meanwhile, we have not forgotten our 00 supporters, and the CAD designs for the IWA/Sfins2 hold-all van and Rfnoos timber carrier conversions were recently approved.
These models are in tooling now, and available to order now with our best Earlybird price.
Also for 00 modellers painted samples of our IZA twin wagons are undergoing assessment – these are exclusively available from Kernow Model Rail Centre.
Beyond that the Mk5 sleepers, KUA flask wagon and IWA wagons continue to progress and other announced and unannounced projects are underway in both N and 00.
We look forward to these coming to fruition in 2020.
