I think I could do a partial 'Rule 1' for a green one of these... :)

Definitely in for a WR Green one. As others have said, even better if available sound-fitted!
Still planning a layout...

Nice call Ben and Mike, I'll have a WR green one I think.

Although the cynical part of me thinks you just announced it because I bought the 3D printed body kit. ;)
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Two green ones for me, one with, one without corridor.

I believe I am correct in saying these had two engines so adequate power for a tail load of a BG and couple of vans?

Sound would be good, but failing that Next 18 socket and speaker in a ready made sound chamber like Farish 40s would do the job.

Yes, two engines with 460hp allowing a tail load of 64T.

A google image search shows class 128s in many intriguing formations, including other dmus, class 121 bubble cars, parcel vans and even a couple of coal hoppers!

I love that sort of stuff! I'd often attach a van to DMU's on my layout.

This is going to be a versatile and interesting model!

Thumbs up to RevolutioN!  :thumbsup:

This is very interesting, especially the red liveried version with the gangway. I have bought a Dapol class 122 for the purposes of conversion to a class 128 using a 3d  printed bodyshell, but I imagine that this model would be significantly preferable (albeit I also imagine that it will take several years to come to fruition, so the 3d printed bodyshell may yet be of use).

Prototype for everything!

During the 1970/80s (or whenever) the piles on the wooden Barnmouth bridge were attacked by sea boring worms. This placed a severe weight restriction with only DMUs allowed over the bridge. I seem to remember that DMUs and maybe even DPUs hauled a couple of ballast wagons on PWay duties instead of locomotives during this time.

A MR one in green, preferably with whiskers is just what I would like. Not bothered about sound but will take that if no other option.

I like it!
This is exactly what Revolution is all about: bringing niche models to the modellers. The beauty of the 128s is that they ran from BR green until sectorisation which makes it interesting for a large number of modellers

I hope it succeeds as I'd love to have a blue or a red one on my layout. Don't need sound...

Now, where's all the info on those units? Even the Wikipedia page seems to be quite short...

Best
Michael
