Caroline steps out…

EP1 samples of the SR General Manager’s Saloon ‘Caroline’ have passed running tests, showing no issues being both pushed and pulled, with the kinematic couplers performing as expected.

A list of tooling improvements has been compiled – primarily confirming the addition of details such as rivets and engraved lettering which is often omitted before first mouldings are approved – and once these have been completed decorated samples in BR Blue Grey, Network Southeast ‘toothpaste’ and Network Rail Brunswick green will be prepared.

Once decorated samples are checked and approved the order book will close and Caroline will go into production, with shipping expected by the end of the year.

Revolution Trains would like to thank Trains4U in Peterborough for allowing us use of their 00 test track.
