Hi Colin,

The CAD designers are confident there is enough room for the bogie to pivot when the pilot is in place, but we can't know for certain until we have a first sample to test.

At the end of the day a CAD is just a 3D computer image - we won't know for sure that all is well until we have a physical model.  And if any alterations are needed, we will ensure they are made.

Cheers

Ben A.

Just placed an order for one of these..  :bounce: courtesy of SWMBO..  :uneasy: :D

Those CAD drawings look excellent... :drool:

Now all I have to do is convince her to let me order two 321's and a 320 in orange!

Cheers
Mark

Haha, didn't notice that! Did notice on the aerial footage on the BBC there was a loco on the back, presumably a 66 pushing the whole lot!

Hi all,

Yup - no OHLE and no third rail.  But pushing it in seemed an odd way to stage it!  Delighted they led with the 92 but not sure why they didn't just put a 66 on the front.

Cheers

Would love to see RevolutioN tackle some steam interest in the future!

Perhaps that last bit was downhill  ;)

I presume the '92 pulled it through the Channel Tunnel - wasn't one of the original intended uses for the '92 to run services from the UK (outside London) to the continent?

I ordered one of the Revolution class 92s the other week after I glimpsed a 1:1 version passing by locally, which qualified it for my Stockport/Manchester-based modern image layout.

Some details from a photo on Flickr about the service and why the 92 is being pushed:

"92 015 & 92 036 are seen arriving at Dollands Moor International Freight Yard with train 4073 1100 Frethun Yard to Dollands Moor. The first train to run from China to London although its not the same train that left China because of different loading gauges which meant the containers were transferred from one set of wagons to another.

The train will have passed through China, Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, Belgium and France before crossing under the Channel and arriving in the east end of London at Barking rail freight terminal on Wednesday night/Thursday morning due to the fact the train is to heavy for HS1 so will go up in two portions, one Tuesday night and the other Wednesday night. The portions will be reattached and there will be a VIP ceremony with 92 015 to be seen "arriving from China" for the viewing guests although all with not be as it seems as the siding isn't "wired" and a class 66 will be pushing the 92 plus train from the rear!

Faster than a ship and half the cost of air freight everyone is hoping this service can entice customers to rail and start new growth in Channel Tunnel Freight services which are at such a low ebb nowadays.

92 015 will take the train up HS1 and has been spruced up for the event and launch of this service."

Cheers, Mike

They'd put special vinyls on the 92, I guess it undermined that somewhat to have a 66 on the front for all the publicity shots, and there's probably something about having a diesel belching black smoke out not looking brilliant on the news, when it had genuinely been hauled by the 92!

What about a Chinese marked 92? It would look so nice on HS1 on Choates Lane. Pretty please? :)

I have just had the rather delicious thought of my four Class 92s (ordered on 31 December) arriving…
…hauled by a real Class 92…! :)

Faster than a ship and half the cost of air freight everyone is hoping this service can entice customers to rail and start new growth in Channel Tunnel Freight services which are at such a low ebb nowadays.

Although I doubt that RevolutioN will be able to choose their exact route (q.v. above), so they’ll probably be ‘shipped’ here, rather than being ‘trained’ here. :(

Just a final ‘random’ thought…
…is the route that this container train taking electrified throughout…?

I know that the Trans-Siberian is (I believe that they finished the last section a few years ago), but that it is not all at the same voltage.

I'd be staggered if it was all electrified. It's a bit moot, they swap the containers between wagons en route anyway, it's not like it's one train the whole time.
