Hi all,

Lots of really useful information in this thread about braking, train marshalling and so on.  I wonder whether it's worth putting in a thread of its own, so those who aren't necessarily interested in the Revolution Class B tankers don't miss it?

Cheers

Ben A.


@martyn  started a thread on this earlier, maybe put all the info in there ? Can an Admin copy some of the relevent posts on this one it and put it on his thread ? @Tank

I've no objection if it is moved to the thread that I started yesterday.

I'm no expert-its just things I have picked up from various sources, including past railway men, and books/web articles. But I hope it has helped some people; but I also acknowledge there may be some errors, though I have checked as far as possible.

Over to the administrators.........

Hello all,

Ran our painted Class B samples on Only Me's Tormouth at the Canterbury MRC show today, and will be again tomorrow.

Not sure if they're marshalled correctly.... barrier wagon either side but maybe not needed for Class B tanks not running with Class As?

Regent in a mixed goods train heading east:


Two branded and one unbranded Essex tank heading west over the Tormouth viaduct:


And a pair of molasses tanks in this consist of a short mixed freight:


Cheers

Ben A.

Have seen pictures of a derailment in 1963 of a mixed freight on the Didcot, Newbury & Southampton where Class B tanks did have barriers.  Each set of three tanks had their own barriers, loaded 16t coal trucks, so it was

barrier
3 tanks
barrier
barrier
3 tanks
barrier
etc

Oh and the train also contained a Class A tank but I couldn't work out what barriers it had.  Most of the derailed wagons were in the dirt at that point and were quite muddled up if not in lots of pieces.

My 'Molasses' tanks look brilliant, (at least I think they are part of my order).   :thumbsup:

Could be mine too, but I don't want mine played with, so I'll happily wait for the container

What is it with these Molasses tanks...they really are lovely and a real rule 1 purchase for me! (farthest south i think they got was Avonmouth)

Hello folks

The good news is that the first batch of our forthcoming Class B tanks is due to leave the factory in the next few days, unfortunately this batch will only be the attractive Mobil Charringtons Class B tanks and the bad news is that the remaining liveries narrowly missed completion before the factory scales down for Chinese New Year (16 February).  The main batch will follow in March April (were waiting for final confirmation from the factory).


NB: pre-production sample

We have decided to airfreight in the first batch of Class B tanks and subject to them arriving and clearing customs in time then they will be available for collection from Model Rail Scotland in Glasgow on 23-25 February.

The split delivery gives us a few challenges in terms of delivery:
  • if you wish to collect from Glasgow then no action is necessary (you dont need to tell us and we will refund any P&P charges after you have collected them)
  • if you placed an order only for the Mobil Charringtons livery then no action is necessary we will send them out once we are back from Model Rail Scotland
  • if you placed an order for a mixture of Class B liveries then you can:
        - either wait for the main batch to be delivered and we will send them all out together no action necessary
        - or if you prefer to get them as they arrive we can send them out after Model Rail Scotland but we will have to charge you a small additional P&P fee (as we will have to send two parcels first and main batches) if you would like us to do this then please get in contact with us after we have confirmed on our website that they have arrived
For that reason we need to start invoicing people for balances. If you paid in full no action is required, but if you paid a deposit then we will generate invoices for the balance payments which are due now please check your account if you do not receive an email. The balance payments will generate an invoice for each line of your deposit invoice and unfortunately not a combined invoice this is a pain for you and us but outside our control.

Cheers, Mike

Of course the Chinese completed the Red ones before the New Year, they are good luck  :)

But red is also not so lucky in a Dog year of the Chinese calendar so they also wanted them off the premises.

Can't help thinking that you're probably over thinking this.
