Hi Paddy,

I hope you like your models when you receive them, though it's Mike doing the hard work with these ones!

Cheers

Ben A.

My Esso and Molasses tanks arrived yesterday to go along with the Charringtons. As others have said, they are simply superb. Fabulous detail, nicely weighted and run beautifully.
Once again a huge thank you to Mike and Ben for delivering these. A lot of hard work and really appreciated.
I only wish the HOAs were on the horizon, but they are probably over 2 years away. Still, plenty of other Revolution models to enjoy in the meantime.
Cheers,
Ged.

Hi Ged

Re the HOAs (and with apologies for thread drift) but the CADs have been complete for some time; we have just been waiting to finalise tooling and production costs with Rapido.

To be fair, we haven't really pushed them as we felt that with the IZA and KFA order books closing last month, and later this month, respectively then our customers might appreciate a breather!

We expect to open the HOA order book in the next few weeks and get tooling started once enough orders are in, not least because I am really looking forward to these ones too!

cheers

Ben A.

Finally got to run these yesterday, out of the 36 i had 2 couplings that needed re alining and one buffer which had come lose but was still in the box, so not bad at all. Straight out of the box these ran well, although a train of 30 of them was on the limit of what the class 40 could pull around the curves at the end of the layout.

As i have already said well done to all involved in these fantastic wagons, now to have them weathered.

36!  Wow, looks amazing but a small fortune in that rake.  ;)

You'll need to take a couple off and put some barrier vehicles in... :)

...but nice train, nice-looking layout it's on, too.

I received my 3 tank wagons !
Two from Revolution and 1 from Osborn because I realised too late that a third one was "mandatory".  :D
I have 1 ESSO, 1 Regent and 1 UM. They look really great ! I'm much impressed. They are amongst the loveliest wagons I have.
Bravo to Revolution Trains ! :thankyousign:

I'll try to post some photos later.


These locos and wagons are looking for a new home! (updated on 23 August 2018 - new items!)

Wanted items (only in their original box):
- Union Mills, 0-6-0 3F steam locomotive in LMS crimson (N gauge)
- Graham Farish 374-132, Mk1 GUV in BR blue ‘express parcels’ (N gauge)

Agree with Talisman... Great pic but you need the barrier wagons!

I've been guilty of the same sort of photos. ;)

Three probably obvious questions here but what sort of wagons were used as barriers?
Would a rake of wagons running in the mid 70's require barrier wagons and would it need a brake van?

I always thought they were vans, but could have been empty opens?

I'm sure we'll get a definitive answer!  :beers:

Barrier wagons weren't needed for Class B tanks. The flash point was lower and as a result they were less hazardous.

This RWeb thread gives a bit more info and several pictures.
http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/112658-br-oil-trains/

If you want to add barrier wagons then opens were much more commonly used than vans. Vans were better put to use on fee paying traffic rather than acting as a spacer.

Also common was the use of a brake van at each end. No doubt used to simplify shunting if the train needed to reverse en-route as just the loco(s) needed to change ends.

The class B tanks were vacuum fitted and so any barrier wagons used would also be fitted - i.e. bauxite in colour.

Not all Class A tank trains needed a barrier wagon. Short trips and shunting work would be done without them; Also, if a class A wagon was filled with a class B product (e.g. diesel fuel) then barriers needn't be used.
