Just received mine after a friend collected them from DEMU show today, and all i can say is these are fantastic little wagons, they haven't made the layout yet but had to open every box just to look at them all, (all 36). Very well done and many thanks to all those involved in bringing these fantastic wagons to life.

Maybe not.
27 ESSO + 4 fuel oil + 7 UM = 38, but not all are same period so wonít all be seen at once.
Doubt if Iím the worst offender for purchases either.

The Postie brought a lovely package today, my Class B tankers.
My triple pack comes in a rather natty outer card board sleeve.


The outer sleeve holds 3 individual clear plastic boxes.



In the box is a rather wonderful wagon and 2 little baggies one containing 2 brass curved Esso signs to overlay the printed ones giving the real feel of the shields as on the real thing, the other baggie holds 2 very fine vacuum pipes and 2 equally fine dummy 3 link couplings.


The wagons themselves are great, the first thing you notice is the weight, these are pleasantly heavy, the detail is astounding as can be seen in the photos, the walkway grills are open, the catches on the filler cap are clearly visible as are the spokes on the vent hand wheel. These wagons are close coupled and go around my 12" curves very well I do not have any R1 curves to try them on, they pass thru' Peco code 55 small radius electrofrog points with no problem.





The underside is equally finely detailed, over all I would give these wagons 12 out of 10 and hope other manufacturers up their game to match. These are probably the best wagons I have seen in any scale.

Well, as one of the original sponsors I did want them really badly.
And the UM ones were really rule 1 as they are so pretty .
Could possibly justify UM  down to Avonmouth perhaps.

It would be interesting to see a 'league table'! I've purchased at least one of every Revolution product so far (including the 92s and 321), which I feel deserves some sort of loyalty bonus :D

A lot of people got together and helped these succeed and as they were seen in rakes of 1 to 51 everyone who bought them has a truly prototypical rake, so thank you everyone for helping me get my Fawley oil train to run behind my green 33s, with a NGS QM brake at the tail.

Thank you also to Ben and Mike for delivering these beauties.

Now how about class A tanks in weed killer livery next year? That would get the era 8-9 guys going, while us transition types can have some grey ESSO class A tanks to mix it with our black ones.
