Revolution Trains has received decorated samples of its forthcoming Class 320 and 321 electric multiple units in N.
Some amendments are needed but these are relatively minor and we are now ready to set deadlines for ordering so the models can enter production.
The models feature high levels of detailing, full interiors, low profile motors that do not obscure the windows and switchable head and tail lights and interior saloon lighting as standard.
The pre-order price is just £195 for the 3-car Class 320 and £220 for the 4-car Class 321.
In addition, it is nearly time to finalise the totals, and this means some options that have not reached minimum order thresholds will be culled.
We are expecting production of the models to begin in October, with delivery expected in Q1 2021.
To manage this process we are setting TWO deadlines:
DEADLINE 1 – August 30th 2020. Last chance to order models on the ‘at risk’ list. After this we will assess order numbers and decide whether these models are proceeding or not. If not, anyone who has ordered will have the option of switching to another livery or receiving a full refund.
The models on the ‘at risk’ list are:
DEADLINE 2 – September 20th 2020. Final deadline for all model orders before production. Models already confirmed for production are:
IMPORTANT – CANCELLED LIVERIES: the following liveries have been cancelled due to lack of orders: First Capital Connect (FCC), Plain White and Northern.
If you ordered one of these and specified a second choice livery that’s already confirmed, or still in the running, you need DO NOTHING NOW.
If you did not specify a second choice livery (or ordered a First Capital Connect Class 321) then TELL US WHAT YOU WANT clicking on the livery change form button below. If we do not hear from you by 30th August 2020 you will receive a refund.
When completing the livery change form please include all the details requested and complete a separate form for each cancelled order.
Note there is no Class 320 livery choice form, since anyone ordering a Strathclyde PTE model has already registered a second choice.
Of course, if you ordered any of the confirmed liveries you don’t need to do anything other than relax and wait for your model to arrive!
Class 321 to 600? It’s a breeze!
Incidentally, as we near production Alstom and Eversholt have revealed that the Class 321 units are themselves about to enjoy a rebirth as hydrogen powered trains – the very first of the all new Class 600 series classification on TOPS.
