Revolution Trains has received decorated samples of its forthcoming IPA car carriers in N.
Produced with kind permission of operator STVA, we are offering flat, staked and covered twin sets in original and revised liveries covering their service from the early 1990s to the present day.
As th image above shows these wagons can be loaded with appropriate models from Oxford Diecast or other manufacturers.
We are also offering the models in prototypical covered quad sets in both original and revised liveries.
The models are still available to order here in all versions.
Each type is available in two different numbers. As can be seen from this massively enlarged image virtually all the numbers and letters are legible.
The models feature our usual high levels of detail with NEM couplers, photo-etched footsteps, wire handrails, lots of separately fitted underframe details and a diecast deck to ensure the models are heavy enough to run well.
In what is becoming a tradition, Revolution will be attending the International N Gauge show at the Warwickshire Exhibition centre on September 14th and 15th and these samples will be on display.
On first inspection we are very happy with the look of these models, but of course we will check them carefully against the livery diagrams and photographs and notify the factory of any corrections.
These wagons can be seen running together in mixed formations, though the covered versions also operate on their own in block trains typically carrying high-value vehicles from car plants to ports.
Immediately after the show we will be closing the order book for the HOA hoppers which are ready for production; we anticipate the car carriers will follow them around 6-8 weeks later in an effort to give our valued customers a little breathing space!
