Revolution Trains was delighted to be invited to Polmadie depot in Glasgow to record the exclusive sounds for the DCC Sound version of our forthcoming Class 92 model.
We were hosted by Serco, Alstom and GBRf who very kindly put Caledonian Sleeper liveried 92014 at the disposal of our sound expert Legomanbiffo to record both inside and out, with sounds ranging from the loco being switched on to the sanders being actuated.
And, sad as we are, we couldn’t resist posing our test sample on the real thing:
Revolution would like to say a huge thank-you to Alstom’s team at Polmadie and to Serco and GBRf for supplying the locomotive and driver to make this possible.
You can still order a Revolution Trains Class 92 in Caledonian Sleeper and 5 other liveries in both DCC Sound and DC silent versions. The sample is continuing testing and once it has passed we will be ready to move to production.
This video offers a low-res preview of one of the horn combinations…naturally the sound recording made today is of significantly higher quality!
