In praise of the Pendolino!

Thanks to everyone who has contacted Revolution Trains to tell us how thrilled they are with their Pendolinos.

Rapido have done a truly amazing job with this model and we are incredibly grateful for the commitment, hard work, attention to detail and skill they have brought to this amazing project.

390104 Alstom Pendolino on Law Junction by the East Neuk MRC.

These are just some of the comments we have received since we started sending models out:

Just picked up my Pendolino from the Royal Mail. A surprisingly emotional moment – … the first crowd funded train and what a train at that. You chaps should be utterly proud of your vision, your bravery and of what you have built and achieved – Bob B.

I received my Pendolinos today and they are fantastic. Thank you and the Rapido team so much for your passion, commitment to detail for making this a reality – Rowland L.

Many thanks for sending the Pendolino – it was worth the wait. All credit for working this project through to completion – Mark K.

My Pendo arrived today, and wow, what an incredible model – Matt C.

This weekend we are at the York Model Railway show at York Racecourse.  Come and find us on stand 104 on the second mezzanine level.

We have brought some Pendolinos to the York show for our customers to collect but to avoid disappointment please note that for reasons of space (or lack of it!) we were only able to bring models requested before the midnight cut off point last Sunday March 25th.

If you emailed us after that, I am sorry but we don’t have your Pendolino.

If you are collecting you’ll see we’ve created space at the right of our stand so you can get your model without stopping others seeing our new Class 92 locomotive, Cargowaggon twin vans and KFA flats.

So far we have managed to post out around a quarter of the models ordered.  We are trying to do it in order, with those who paid in full receiving their models first as administratively that is easier for us.

If you haven’t yet received your model we’re sorry!

We do understand the waiting is almost unbearable but we promise are doing our best to get through the orders as quickly as possible!
