Revolution Trains is upscaling its proposed Ecofret intermodal wagon to 00 gauge, 1:76 scale.
These wagons are in service with GBRf, DB and Freightliner and can be seen in blue, red and green. There are also sets running around in VTGs own, darker blue livery.
The vehicles are widely seen in intermodal trains across the network. In a break from tradition, each deck is only 40′ long. In a market dominated by 40′ sea containers, this maximises the load that any given train can carry as there is not the wasted 20′ that can be found on trains comprising older 60′ wagons.
For flexibility in use, the centre vehicle has rotating spigots in the centre allowing the wagons to carry 20′ containers if needed. The Revolution model will replicate this.
Revolution would like to thank VTG, GBRf, Freightliner and DB for their assistance in producing this model.
We expect the order book to open in late 2019 or early 2020.
