Order placed and email confirmation received, no bad gateway message, but sent to wrong email address.

Somewhat confusing

Hi

I didn't get an email so I'm now wondering if it's gone to my old free serve account which has been closed by ee. I did update my email address in my account however it appears that the billing address also has the email address and that is used when placing an order.

Cheers

Thanks Paul,

I'd not updated that one, hopefully all sorted now.

All the best

Done! 

I'm assuming that being 1:148 this will be slightly larger loading gauge than (say) the old Roco Cargowaggon, but shouldn't look too overscale in amongst my other continental stuff.

I may need to just redirect my salary to Revolution trains soon.

Thanks Mike and Ben, another great addition for the modern modeller.

Hello all,

A complete twin is 27000mm over buffers, so in 1:148 they should be a smidge over 182mm.  We are aiming to get the gap between the vehicles in the pair to scale.

cheers

Thanks Ben and Mike for the dimensions info.  I did eventually find a basic drawing on the Touax website, where they are classified Hfirrs in their sliding door van fleet.
     Yes Ben ,they are 27000 mm over buffers for the pair which in old money is just over 7" in 1/148 scale with the couplings. Inside loading dimension of each van is 12440mm. The drawing did not show the wheelbase of each van but would seem to be about 30' or 60mm in scale when I measure the drawing.
     I have vans at 55 mm. wheelbase at the mo so the extra bit should be OK in tight curves (hopefully) which I have in hidden storage areas on my layout (about 11" radius) but it is quite a long wheelbase for each van.

Evening all.

Another winner here Ben and Mike, Shall I just arrange for my salary to be paid directly to you?!

Does anyone have any date details for each livery variety? I'll certainly be putting my name down for all of the revised livery varieties, but I could be persuaded to the others depending on timescales.

Cheers

Ollie

OK

I'm in for 2 triple packs plus a single flasher.

If you don't do a weathered option, I'll be taking my ball home.

Pretty please, I'd be happy to pay extra for weathered, even if you need to pass that on to someone like Mercig.

Thanks,

And stop coming up with new models ( for now)

Hi John,

Thanks for the support but at the moment we have no plans for weathered versions.

This is primarily because the only way we can be sure of producing a good weathered model is to take a factory painted model, get it weathered here, return it to the factory, ask them to copy it and then assess their work.

This would probably add several months to the process.

It would of course add to the cost too, though you did say that would not be an issue.

Having said that, since I will be planning to weather some of my own what I'll probably do - if I am happy with the job - is add some "how to" images and text on our websites.

Cheers

Ben A.

If it wasn't for all the comments and information posted I would have thought you had started making wagons up.
Everyday is a school day.
Interesting looking wagon  :thumbsup:

Hi all,

Saw a rake of these at DIRFT from a passing train on Friday but sadly too busy gawping to get a snap on my phone!  Almost certainly on mineral water service.  Most were dirty, but a few pairs show evidence of having been cleaned and touched up recently.

Cheers

Hi Tim,

The consensus seems to be that the revised livery started to appear in the mid-late 1990s.

We have had a few people asking about the flashing light on the original livery - keep an eye on our website as we may add it later if we can.

Cheers

Ben A.

Cheers Ben

I'll order original livery then but will get a tail light in original if that ever becomes available

Best wishes

Tim
