It’s a clean sweep for Revolution!

Revolution Trains is proud and delighted to have been voted N gauge Manufacturer of the Year for the second time running in the Model Rail Model of the Year Awards.

Incredibly, Revolution won twice as many votes as the next nearest rival. The full results are:

These awards are voted for by the readership, not chosen by a panel of experts, making them especially valuable.

But wait – there’s more…!

Revolution’s Class 92, produced by Rapido Trains, was voted N gauge Locomotive of the Year in a much closer contest – just pipping the Kato CLass 800/0 at the post – 25.9% to 25.2%!

And to complete the hatrick, Revolution’s IPA car carriers took gold in the N Gauge Rolling Stock of the Year category!

IPA twin sets – flat, flat with stakes, covered wth side screens – in STVA red and original pale grey
IPA quad set in Groupe CAT blue

Second in this category was the EFE Rail ‘Shark’ ballast plough, and the Revolution PCV Cement hoppers, produced for us by Accurascale, and our own FWA ‘Ecofret’ container flats were third equal.

PCV ‘Cemflo’ wagons in TOPS and Blue Circle versions
GBRf FWA ‘Ecofret’ triple set. Freightliner twins and DB red triples also available.

We still have stocks of the IPA quad sets in Groupe CAT blue livery and PCV cement hoppers plus very limited numbers of some of the other models. If you wish to acquire some of these award winning models then go to our shop:

Naturally we would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who voted to us, and offer our warmest congratulations to all the other winners.

Revolution on the road again

Next weekend (February 25th-27th) we will be at Model Rail Scotland at the SEC in Glasgow. It’s our first chance to visit Scotland since 2020, and we are very much looking forward to catching up with everyone who can attend.

The Scottish Exhibition Centre (just out of view) is in the shadow of Glasgow’s famous Finnieston Crane, now preserved but once used to load North British locomotives for export around the world.

We expect to announce a new unit and new wagon on the opening morning, plus we will have a *free* catalogue for show-goers to pick up which includes the new items and summarises our current ongoing projects.

See you there!
