Revolution’s second first, and third show of 2022!

Revolution Trains was delighted to be awarded N Gauge Manufacturer of the Year in the BRM/RMWeb/World of Railways British Railway Modelling Awards 2021 at the recent London Festival of Railway Modelling at Alexandra Palace.

It’s Revolution’s second such honour of the year, coming soon after we were given a similar accolade by the readers of Model Rail magazine, and again we would like to offer our sincere thanks to all who voted for us. Naturally we’d also like to extend our congratulations to all other winners and nominees.

The show itself was enormously enjoyable and one of the busiest we’ve attended; during the weekend we were able to meet many dozens of existing, and hopefully future, customers and we saw significant interest in the new generation of high-fidelity N gauge models from visitors who told us that until recently they would not have considered the scale.

Although we had numerous N gauge samples on display, we also took the opportunity to give one of the decorated samples of our forthcoming 00 gauge model of the SR General Manager’s saloon 975025 ‘Caroline’ (albeit missing its nameplates!) a run on Mike Buick’s excellent ‘Oak Rad’ layout.

Please note this is a pre-production samples and some aspects will be improved when production starts soon. Although the Revolution order book is closed this model will be available at selected retailers.

Revolution’s third outing of 2022 is in just a fortnight’s time, when we are delighted to be supporting the first full exhibition organised by Britain’s Biggest Model Railway, the enthralling Heaton Lodge Junction built by Simon George.

The enormous 0 gauge layout forms the centrepiece of a new show at the Bath and West Country showground running from April 8th-10th, and among other layouts and exhibitors the Revolution stand will be present with decorated and EP samples of all our forthcoming models on display. More details can be found here.
