I've probably missed this detail somewhere but how long are they please?

I'm not at home but off the top of my head around 130-135mm. Plus a small amount for couplings.

Cheers Mike

Buffers to buffers should be a fraction over 137mm plus, as red_death, says a bit for the couplings

@red_death , @Ben A,

Will the Olive green version have any TOPS codes printed on? Will it be a fitted or un-fitted wagon? (working out if I also need a brake-van or two).

Also, do you know the dimensions of the load space for the versions with drop-side doors? (length & width between planks). I'm planning on using a dismantled footbridge as a load and want to find one that fits...

Dimensions - I don't know without checking the CAD and I'm unlikely to have time to do that before Warley I'm afraid.

Olive green - we haven't made the final decision on numbers but it will most likely be a TOPS numbered version. Unfitted.

Cheers Mike

Not sure if this is what you mean but

Inside length = 19.507m
Inside width = 2.076m
Inside height (floor to top of sides) = 0.575m

So a quick bit of maths gives 126mm * 13mm * 4mm.  All rounded to the nearest mil.

Any good?

Hi

19507 / 148 = 132 not 126 rounded to nearest mm.

Cheers

Oh!  :worried:

It never occured to me to calculate it your way.

I converted 19.507m into inches, then divided to get feet and then multiplied by 2.

I was always hopeless at maths.

So an e-mail arrived today from Revolution which included, amongst other things, a reminder that the early bird price for Sturgeons ends tomorrow, December 21st.

Oops I thought hadn't done anything about that so out came the credit card and after logging in I've ordered some.  Not too many but I've saved enough to get the shipping for free.

Hello all,

Just a gentle reminder that it's... EARLYBIRD PRICE DEADLINE DAY!‬

‪The £33 EarlyBird rate for the forthcoming Revolution Trains Sturgeon engineer's wagon ends at midnight tonight, at which time the price goes up to £35‬.



Because of the rapid take up we've seen since opening the order book the model is already in tooling and we are expecting to have EP1 samples to show at Model Rail Scotland in February.

Cheers

Ben A.
