Revolution Trains has received images of the first samples of its forthcoming N-gauge “Cemflo” PCV cement wagons.
They’re being produced for us by Dublin-based Accurascale; responsible for the same highly-regarded models in 4mm scale. Our smaller versions promise similar levels of detail and refinement, with photo-etched chassis reinforcing fillets and numerous separately fitted detail parts.
One end has the brake vacuum tanks, while the roof features a finely detailed walkway and separately fitted valves.
Underneath, the wire pipe runs and discharge equipment can be seen. In service, these wagons operated across Britain, being particularly associated with the flow from Cliffe in Kent to Uddingston, outside Glasgow.
They were introduced in 1961 – making them ideal for transition era modellers – and lasted until 1988.
The models are available to order now in either original blue circle livery – with the distinctive lozenge plaque – or the later version with the placard removed and TOPS numbering.
Once these samples have been checked over and approved we will be sent decorated samples, then the models will go into production.
As ever, we produce models to satisfy pre-orders only, so order here to avoid missing out and to qualify for our low EarlyBird prices.
