Revolution takes gold in Model Rail awards!

Revolution Trains is proud to have been awarded a number of Gold and Silver awards in the Model Rail model of the year 2023 awards.

Revolution’s Mk5 Caledonian Sleeper coaches took first place in the N gauge Rolling Stock category, and our IIA-D Drax hopper wagons came second in the poll voted for by readers of the magazine. Together, these models accounted for 43% of the vote.

Other N gauge results saw our Class 128 Parcels railcar take second place in the N gauge powered model category, just 3 percentage points behind the winner, Rapido UK’s Class 28 Co-Bo diesel locomotive.

In the N gauge Manufacturer of the Year category Revolution Trains took silver, coming in behind Graham Farish by Bachmann.

In 00 gauge Revolution also enjoyed success, with our Southern Region General Manager’s saloon ‘Caroline’ taking silver in the Coaching Stock category, behind Accurascale’s 4mm Mk5 Caledonian Sleepers. The sleepers were clearly a popular prototype with modellers, and again the winning margin was just three percentage points.

In the 00 wagon category our FNA-D nuclear flask wagon was very unlucky to be nudged into fourth position; with 9% of the vote it was an agonising half a point behind the second and third placed models: the Rapido Trains UK SECR six-wheel brake van and GWR ‘Toad’ brake van, which each polled 9.5%.

As ever we’d like to thank all those who voted for us, and offer our congratulations to all fellow winning manufacturers in all categories and scales.
