Season’s Greetings from Revolution

Revolution Trains would like to wish all our friends and supporters a Merry Christmas and an enjoyable 2018.

We’ve received an early Xmas present from Santa Rapido in Canada – this image showing the latest samples of our forthcoming Class 92 model.

These models show several refinements over the first samples received a few months ago, with a finer fit to many of the parts, more crispness in the mouldings and a tightened up drivetrain improving smoothness and power.

Having just arrived in Canada, these models will be thoroughly tested before being sent to us for assessment.

Once that’s done, and the fit and performance of the models is approved, we will check liveries and be ready to close the order book and begin production.

Our IZA Cargowaggon twin vans  are the perfect models to run with your Class 92.

The IZA samples have now been thoroughly examined and approved, and livery diagrams finalised for all versions.  We are expecting to receive painted samples early in the New Year, as well as a set with our flashing tail lamp option.

We anticipate closing the order book and beginning production as soon as the factory reopens after Chinese New Year in mid-February, so please consider ordering soon if you haven’t already and want to take advantage of low crowdfunder prices.

As this project was only unveiled at the DEMU Showcase exhibition in June we feel progress so far has been remarkable and are very grateful to the team working on this model in China and those in the UK who have provided invaluable assistance!

Look out for our Revolution round-up next week when we will have more news of all our projects, and a look ahead to our plans for 2018.
