They all look the same to me.
Yeah, I tend to find all this steam powered stuff looks the same, too!  :P  ;)

Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Chill out they are on the way.

Unfortunately we don’t know what ship they are on so we have no idea where exactly on the journey the ship is. We also don’t know if it has multiple drop offs on the way. They will be here when they get here.

Give them a break, Ben and Mike have said they are on the way so they are on the way.

Thank you for this informative and positive post, I think that was alibuchan's point. I don't expect you'll trigger updates from revolution this way, they don't have any news, they won't say much...

Yep, if that wasn't your point then what was it? You've been very vocal about delays and implications that Ben and Mike are somehow withholding or not sharing information.

We're all looking forward to them, no point resurrecting threads with pointless comments.

Hello all,

If anyone has any questions just ask - we'll do our best to answer.

In the meantime, we (like everyone) are waiting for notification that firstly the ship has docked, and secondly that the consignment has been released by customs.

Once that happens (probably in another 3 weeks or so) then we'll have news and will share it.  Otherwise I try to avoid cluttering up threads.

Cheers

Ben A.

Please dont start another post like previous ones they will get here when they do and Im sure we will all be told that as soon as they are in this country ,as allready said it will depend on if the ship makes other drops on the way ,no one can tell not even Mike or Ben so dont keep worrying them they do have other things like paid jobs to do as Ben said as soon as THEY KNOW so will we at least we know that we WILL get them because we have all seen pictures from Rapido and they have said they are on there way ,so lets all be patient and wait it wont be long time flies by .

Thanks - I've not seen the Rail Express review yet (or some of the others!).

Cheers, Mike

Nor I!  Hoping to pick up REx today.

I have seen the reviews in Railway Modeller and Model Rail; they and the N Gauge Journal were the first to receive review models (we currently have three - one 9-car, one 11-car and one 5-car.)

Once those models were returned they were sent to Rail Express, BRM and Hornby Magazine; hopefully their reviews will appear in due course.

For anyone who still hasn't seen a Pendolino for themselves we will have them at Model Rail Scotland at the SECC at Glasgow next weekend on our stand.

And after something of a hiatus, while we focussed on existing projects, we are now in a position to propose a new model that, though primarily a transition era vehicle, can be used by those running Pendolinos.  As ever, it will only happen if enough people sign up.

Cheers

Ben A.
