Revolution goes green with Eco-fret…

With delivery of our KFA intermodal wagons imminent Revolution is ready to offer our next container flat – the new and innovative VTG FWA “Ecofret” in twin and triple format.

Outer and centre vehicle

These wagons are shorter than traditional container flats, meaning that in a market dominated by 40’ containers they can carry a greater load per train length.

This video produced by VTG explains the concept:

Currently in service with DB Cargo, Freightliner and GBRf the wagons can be seen in DB red, Freightliner green, GBRf blue and VTG dark blue. 

The models will feature a solid metal spine for weight with moulded deck and spigot details.   They are the ideal accompaniment to our existing 40’ hi-cube containers and will be designed to accommodate them.

CAD has been completed and we expect to open the order book soon.

Holdalls and timber carriers in N too…

Revolution is also confirming that in response to demand it will be offering the IWA holdall van and timber carrier conversions in N. These will be to a similar specification as our other wagons.

We will open the order book for these models in due course.
