Hi Ben & Mike
We are privileged to part of something special.
We shall be forever grateful for your outstanding vision and courage in establishing Revolution for our benefit with little personal gain except in admiration and reputation.
These are exciting times, full of eager anticipation, and the delivery of the Pendolino is a great accolade. You will deservedly experience a great deal of pride when we have the joy of handling our very own Pendolinos.
Can't wait!

I find it is better to put off procrastinating until tomorrow. Works for me.

All the Pendolino discounts should now have been applied, though the £10 refund may take a few days to hit your account.

If you think that you were eligible for the discount and it isn't showing on your order (you can check by logging in to your account on our website) then please drop me a note.

Cheers, Mike

Do we know how many there were to start with?

If it's quite a small number of sets then I hope those nice Revolution guys could produce a certificate saying which one each buyer has.

We would have to do that for each of the Pendolinos which makes it fairly meaningless - the only one we might do that for is the Poppylino (though we haven't decided). I think that we have said roughly how many Pendolinos were sold in total and we offered 9(or 10?) variations so you can work out the approximate number per variation - City of Birmingham was very much in that same range of number produced.

Cheers, Mike

Gah - please don't find extra work for us! 

After three full weekends spent on the TEAs I am already anticipating the picking, packing and posting of more than 1000 Pendolino sets.  Though we have a couple of volunteer helpers standing by who clearly don't know what they are letting themselves in for!

cheers

Ben A.

For those transition modellers who haven't ordered a Pendolino then eat your hearts out as I can confirm they are steam, yes, steam driven (gasp,horror, shock, probe)
The 2nd car is entirely given over to being a coal bunker/boiler as can clearly be seen here........

Your actually worse than me Mick I new it wasnt a Pendolino but I wasnt sure what it was called . Most of my stock s steam but I just couldnt resist having a Poppylino and helping out on a project like that and at the price it was an absolute bargain   cant wait to see it snaking round my layout ,of course it wont be stopping at Stonehouse station  and it will eventually have a class 57
Thunderbird  in front as there is no way Im putting overhead wires in .
My mates have allready demolished nearly all my signals as it is .
