Hi John,

You're right.  We have kind of outgrown the website - which was originally designed when we were just doing a Pendolino - and it is on our "to do" list of things to sort out.

While we'd encourage you to look around the whole site (of course!) the best one stop shop is the news page - this is where I always post the latest information first.

Cheers

Ben A.

Also noticed that this item is still not included in the drop-down projects list although there has been plenty of information in the News section.

John


There is actually a project page: http://www.revolutiontrains.com/projects/cargowaggon-twins-iza/

I just forgot to add it to the menus - now fixed.

Cheers, Mike

Hello all,

For anyone attending the Warley National Model Railway Exhibtion at the NEC this weekend we will have the first moulded samples of the Cargowaggon twin vans on the Revolution Trains stand, B029.

I will post photographs after the weekend here and on our website, though other photos may appear beforehand of course.

Cheers

Ben A.

Hello all,

Here are some images of the first samples of the IZA Cargowaggon twins.  Considering we only launched this model in June, to have tooled and moulded samples by Warley doesn't seem like bad going!



The models will have standard N-gauge couplers on the outer ends, with a representation of the screw coupling on between the cars, in kinematic coupler pockets to ensure buffer locking isn't possible.

The underframes correctly are different for each of the pair of vans; with both air tanks on one and the handbrakewheels on the other:



In the image above one of the handbrakewheels appears to have vanished but they were only pushed into position for the show...

These wagons have been in service since the mid 1980s and are still in use.  Over the years they have carried many products, but I believe they are primarily used for mineral water from France these days.  And they are ideal for use behind our forthcoming Class 92, though I apologise for the poor quality of the pic:



There are a few minor niggles to sort out, then once liveries are checked and approved we will be ready to start production some time early next year.

More information and images on the Revolution website where these models can still be ordered.

Cheers

Ben A.

I've got about £400 spare in the railway fund so now the dilema for me is this

NGS Rover cube kits at £33 each

or

A combination of ready to run IZA twins for between £36 and £108 per pack

 :hmmm:

Even though I've been waiting for the Rover cube since like forever I'm going to have to go with the IZA twins.  Sorry NGS but I've already got a backlog of kits to build.

On the other hand I could always sell some stuff and have both.

Hi all,

Thanks for the kind words.  The factory has done a fabulous job with these, in an amazingly short period of time.

While there are a couple of very tiny niggles (blue on the van's "shoulder" in the middle should reach to roofline, tie-down loops should be blue) for a first painted sample I am delighted.

Cheers

Ben A.

Sorry about being late trying to join this party due to a change in my modelling interests.  I would like to order at least two pairs but would like one (pair) with the rear light.  I see I can only order the triple pack without the lighted one or a single pair with light.  Would the answer be to order two single packs with lights or is there another way?  I would be happy to order a triple pack if I could have a lighted one.

Hi David,

I am not quite sure I follow.

You can order original or revised Cargowaggon twins in single packs or triples, you can order a single Perrier twin (there were only three of these out of 100 pairs anyway) or you can order the Cargowaggon revised livery with flashing tail lamp.

There is certainly the option to order singles in all liveries without flashing lights...

cheers

Ben A.

Hi Ben, 
What I would like is a triple pack of revised livery but one with light.  The answer might have come to me. ::) :doh: Should I place three orders:  two orders for single pairs in revised livery.  One order for a single pair in revised livery with light.  Sorry if I'm being hard work

One order containing three items should suffice, those items being

Single pair in revised livery
Single pair in revised livery
Single pair in revised livery with light
