I would love to see the TPO 325 but it is definitely not transition.

A 310 would qualify but only if you're getting a 9 car Pendo.

Class 501 was a huge part of my early travelling life and is certainly transition but died long before the Pendo. Not sure if they were re-purposed for anything?

Good call, I just so happen to have a 9 car Pendo ordered as well.

One of these was made into the V train for line testing for the Javelin

That's why I thought a class 303/311 as they "almost" sat along side Pendalinos at Glasgow Central, and were transferred to the Manchester area before scrapping, and after all they are announcing at the Scottish Model Railway Show.  :)

There could be six liveries possible. :thumbsup:

The Pendos have such a huge area that they cover this new model could be anything, would really like to see the 313, 314, 315 or 317/318 produced, however the struggles with the 320/321 make me think they wouldn’t want to put those eggs in that basket again and would look for something that is more appealing to modelers.

Pendos ran alongside loco hauled rakes and of course many Multiple Units, Dapol cornered the loco hauled market (Mk2s still need to be done) with the Mk3s and 86s, the 87/90 would be a risk as Farish could retool at any time, that brings us to EMUs and DMUs, EMUs have proven to not sell very well (except the Pendo), commuter EMU seem to lag behind, DMUs have just about been covered by Farish and Dapol (101, 108, 142, 150, 156, 170).

So on to Freight stuff, are we missing any locos? Maybe the class 88 (unless Dapol are doing it with the 68) so freight wagons are left, and those I never really took much notice, was more interested in passenger stuff.
Support crowdfunding - it’s the way forward

Revolutions class 321 needs your help, let’s make it happen.

 i tend to look forward to the new announcements, hoping for a new up to date pullman steel side type coaches as these would certainly cover late big four, transition period , early late br and privatized on charters and can / would go anywhere , and i really cant for the life of me see why the big manufactures haven't had a go as you have really old poole  or the farish 1 mk type not for me  , would love to have the orient express running around, and i really dont want to butcher a couple of brighton belle sets just in case

From earlier posts from Ben A which included

"a transition era vehicle"

and

"a useful missing model"

Not the singular phrases

My final guess is

Caroline aka TBD975025

Built in the late 50s and taken into departmental use in 1970
Goes almost anywhere due to its narrow profile body
Three liveries blue / grey, NSE and green
Two styles of front, bagpipes and headcode box or flush with modern headlights

Advantages of said model

Won't need a powered chassis
Only one vehicle to make albeit with three fronts
Plans probably available from Hastings Diesels Ltd

and

Everyone will want one

The new idea thats transitional and used with Pendos?...

It's a RevolutioN Special Class 47/57 upgrade so you can tow all those Pendolinos around when they grind to a halt when there is a line power failure!!  :smiley-laughing:
