@Railwaygun thanks for starting this thread - I got home from TINGS put up the news item on our website about the APT-E then promptly fell asleep for a few hour...

The expressions of interest page is http://www.revolutiontrains.com/apt-e/ - as ever it will only happen if enough people want a model of an APT-E!

Cheers, Mike

Model shown on Kings Park is an APT-P (prototype - electric powered )not the APT-E (experimental) gas turbine powered.

I am so excited by this. I exchanged e-mails with Jason from Rapido a year or two ago about the possibility of shrinking the fabulous OO version (which I bought just to put on display) down to N, even if it was only to 3D print. But the possibility that we could see this with the quality RevolutioN has established is just so exciting. Let's all express our over excited interest in this iconic train! Tilt or not, I want one. But preferably with tilt. And the sarnie doorstop, of course!

Couldn't agree more! Particularly if Rapido work an engineering miracle and produce a working tilt mechanism in N!

Just as I was about to sell my blue-grey and move entirely to transition southern steam....
Rule 1 says APT-E alongside Spam Cans is perfectly acceptable!

Yes the APT-E is another must have set I would prefer it to be able to tilt as I would have liked the Pendolino to have done but never mind I still want one and a ready to run Proto type HST would be nice  now that Dapol have dropped it .

Maybe Revolution will consider a Thumper next? With prototype sound.
Another iconic model which ran over many eras. And another multiple unit, which they seem to be good at.
