Exclusive - IT'S TWINS FOR REVOLUTION TRAINS!

IT'S TWINS FOR REVOLUTION TRAINS!

The long-serving IZA Cargowaggon twin ferry van is the next model being proposed by Revolution Trains as a crowdfunded project.



The wagons have been in service since 1986 and been used for all manner of goods, from petfood to paper, mineral water to metal, and beer to bagged clay.

And there are few layouts depicting the last 30 years that would not benefit from a twin or two... they can be run in block trains on their own, with other ferry vans, or in representations of enterprise services when as few as one twin could be found with tankers, flat wagons or hoppers.

100 twins were built for Cargowaggon in 1986.  They were designed to be permanently coupled with the brake equipment shared across the wagons, meaning they cannot operate independently.  The success of the design led to further builds of 50 pairs in 1989 and 1991, though to very slightly different designs,

Our model is being produced with the full cooperation of present owners Touax and will feature the usual levels of detailing and specification with correctly modelled brake gear, wire handrails, NEM couplers in NEM sockets and separately fitted detail parts.  Like our tankers, they will be weighted to US NMRA standards (significantly heavier than British modellers are used to) to ensure top performance and track holding.

The crowdfunded price for a single twin will be £36, for a triple pack £108 and in another first we are offering a version with a factory fitted, battery powered flashing tail lamp for £40.

Please don't delay signing up - the sooner we reach our target of backers, the sooner we can get started.  See our website for payment terms.

And, as ever, we will only produce enough models to satisfy pre-orders so don't miss out!

Crikey, didn't realise there was more on the way!

Interesting choice, like the tail lamp idea.

An excellent choice. Chipboard, mineral water, electrical goods.....I have a use for these. Guessing that the tail light will use the Rapido latched on/off switch actuated by a magic wand. Hopefully will look good alongside my amateurish 2 axle Cargowaggon that I made 30 years ago, and the Minitrix continental gauge one with sliding doors in 1/160.

Nice choice.

Can all the liveries still be seen (even if heavily weathered)?

Thanks

Hello all,

I have only just got back after a busy day at the DEMU show.

I hope this wagon will prove popular; it's one I have long wanted and there are so many flows, uses and routes that I am sure most people modelling the last 30+ years can find space for at least one twin.

Mike will be adding the order buttons to the website in the coming week; either he or I will certainly update this thread when that is done.

I know the Perrier wagons are still running about in service; as are the Cargowaggon types of course but I think that the original Cargowaggon livery gave way to the newer one progressively over the last twenty years.

The differences are fairly minimal TBH - the revised livery is identical to the original except for the additon of yellow axle box covers and small round hazard signs on the door.

Cheers

Ben A.

Excellent news.

These would look awesome on a Speedlink rake.

Silly question, we're these the wagons used to move Guinness flows out of Park Royal plant?

Look forward to seeing updates

Me too.

I, too, hoped it was going be a couple of black/silver items of motive power.
Good luck with it, Ben & Mike, but this one's not for me.
