Hello all,

EP 1 samples of the Sturgeon are here, both with and without doors.



The door handles are all in wire - 14 each side! On the production models we will have them a little less proud.



Other than a few minor niggles we are very happy indeed with these.  Next step is deco samples, probably in about another 6 weeks (allowing for Chinese New Year, which has just started) and then we can close the order book.



More information and ordering here: https://www.revolutiontrains.com/news/

cheers

Ben A.

Quick question - the deck looks shiny. shouldn't it be textured in some way - planking etc?
Otherwise happy to have prepaid.

Yes - itís steel checkerplate on the prototype. This will be engraved in once we are happy with the rest of the part.

FANTASTIC

After missing out on class B tanks i knew we needed these and Mike confirmed we did so orders placed, triple with doors, triple without.

I cannot wait, my plan was to have this part of the layout built and running ready for Sturgeons, we start building baseboards on Saturday, track is all here ready to lay.

Hopefully I'll achieve it.

Has a decision been made on whether the olive green ones will have TOPS era data panels, please?

If someone can find an olive green example without TOPS panel then we'll consider it but photos are thin on the ground.

Cheers Mike

You can always put a wipe of olive over a black one - and it will probably look nicely weathered that way too.
