Chill out – with Revolution

Regular customers will know that Revolution has a tradition of teaming up with C-Rail Intermodal each year to produce a new container model unveiled fully complete and ready to buy at The International N Gauge Show (TINGS).

Covid may have put paid to TINGS, however Revolution’s ambition remains undimmed and this year we are delighted to offer a completely new range of 40′ hi-cube refrigerated “reefer” containers in 1:148 scale. These are ready to ship and can be ordered by following the link below.

These models join the 40′ hicube, 20′ tank and 30′ bulk containers we have produced in previous years.

The models are highly detailed, as we would expect from C-Rail, and are designed to fit the Revolution KFA and FWA container flats, as well as the KTA ‘pocket wagon’ and forthcoming FSA/FTAs from C-Rail, and will enable N gauge enthusiasts to add yet more variety and accuracy to their container trains.

As an added refinement, they also feature protypically accurate refrigeration units mouldings for both Daikin (left) and Thermo King with photo-etched grilles.

These containers are available to buy now from Revolution and C-Rail Intermodal and are priced at £9.00 each.
