Morning all, I posted a short video on Facebook last night of the first EP for the class 92 that has arrived.  Unfortunately someone in China sent it in kit form so myself and @Ben A built it last night and by just before midnight on the test track (9" curves!!) we had a functioning EP and is primarily for Ben and @red_death to check all the body and under-frame detailing is correct..  Buffers still to fit ;)

Here is a short taster for those of you that do not have FaceBook!...

Hello all,

The 92 sample was put through its paces at last week's meeting of the Northants and Cambs Area Group of the NGS, running on the club's new Crowland Green layout.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMyWsGrugbg

Rapido have supplied a running sample, but the lights were added by Paul (only me) and do not represent the production version.  Thanks to Richard for filming and uploading the video.

With the layout still at the tracklaying stage, and eventually depicted a line across the Cambridgeshire Fens in the mid 1960s, this was strictly a Rule 1 operating session, right down to the train - the three samples of the NGS forthcoming Carflat, which are on show this weekend at the GCR event.

Cheers

Ben A.

Hello all,

Another important milestone in the Revolution Trains/Rapido Class 92 development schedule has been reached: sound recording.

While the samples are undergoing testing here and at Rapido HQ in Canada, Revolution Trains was very kindly invited to Polmadie depot in Glasgow to record the sounds for the DCC Sound fitted option we are offering.



Alstom, Serco and GBRf were kind enough to put 92014 in its attractive teal Caledonian Sleeper livery at our disposal and our sound engineer Legomanbiffo and his assistant spent a very enjoyable, if fairly intense, afternoon recording every sound that a 92 is able to make - and there are a surprising number!



For maximum quality and minimal distortion the sounds were recorded both inside and out; most of the time the loco was static but for some it did need to trundle up and down.  Playing with the full size train set was good fun!



Our photographer Tom Smith came along - thanks to him for allowing us to use his images.



The team at Polmadie were very impressed with the sample and we couldn't resist posing it with its full size counterpart!  (Here's a clue - the sample is sitting at the base of the doorway!)



The sounds will now be configured into a single file for "running" and separate files for switchable noises such as air horns, sanding boxes, doors closing etc.

Once the testing is concluded we will be sent a second EP sample for final approval then we will be ready to move to painted sampling and final production. 

This may not take too long now, so we would urge anyone interested in acquiring one of these models at the discounted pre-order rate to register and pay a deposit, or the full amount, at our website www.revolutiontrains.com

Once again huge thanks to our supporters, and to Alstom, Serco, GBRf, Caledonian Sleeper and of course Wabtec/Brush for all their assistance.

cheers

Ben A.
