Stop it, stop it, stop it!!!

At this rate I'll owe more money to Revolution than to the mortgage company.

As for liveries, I would prefer the all over mucky grey that seems so common on all Cargowagons.

Seriously, heavily weathered, would suit the contemorary modeller more.

John P

It's a good shout, if there was ever a wagon where a heavily weathered option would be good it's these.

This is great news gents. I'm sure it's these that run through Reading on the Tilbury to Trostre Works services along with the bogie cargowaggons that Dapol do. Heavy weathering is a huge must in the modern scene.

Cheers, Timmo

I agree about the weathering, would be great to see that as an option. Don't think I'd even seen a clean one until these photos! I remember seeing these through Ely regularly 15 odd years ago on the paper train so will definitely be ordering some for memories sake.

Great I'm very interested in these.

But....

I've just had a quick look at revolutiontrains.com and spotted that they have expressions of interest for HOAs. I missed that! Does that mean I cant any? @BenA

There may have to be a tagged option too. A lot seem to have suffered attention of the graffiti "artist". That would be a fresh challenge for the artwork designers and those doing the tampo printing!

Expression of Intrest form is just to say you would like some, as long as you make an order when they are available for sale, you will be ok.

Interesting choice of wagon with the twins, might order a 3 pack but not many more would be needed.

Hi folks

The order details are now up in the Shop section of our website (I think!).  The IZAs are coming out of the same factory as the Class B tanks - seeing the high quality of the Class B tank sample gave us confidence to use this factory for the twins.

Just to clarify - the HOA order book hasn't opened yet for a variety of reasons outside of our control though hopefully now that we have the first CAD we can open orders very soon.

We are going to send out a newsletter over the next week or so with a short update on each of the projects and what stage we have reached and an estimated production/order deadline schedule.

Cheers, Mike

Placed my initial order. In spite of the "bad gateway" message my account shows a processed order and payment. Will check tomorrow that the payment has been processed fully. Thanks to Mike and Ben for this initiative.

Thanks Mike - it has gone through.

At some point over the summer I'm going to try and find time to re-build the site on a different web host to get rid of the Bad Gateway error.

Cheers, Mike

Ben or Mike , Do you know the length of the twin waggons. I have tried to find drawings on google but with no success. Kind of important for my loops knowing how many to order..

Hi Bret

IIRC from the drawings each half of the twin is 12400 mm so divide by 148.

Cheers Mike

Just to say. I too had the bad gateway error but checked my card which payment had gone from and my orders had it all listed correctly, so good heads up on the website  for that one! Very exciting!

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

Somewhat confusing
