Revolution Re-runs
« on: September 08, 2018, 11:42:05 AM »
I've not seen this reported in amongst the new models.

https://www.revolutiontrains.com/news/

Details of  new run of Pendolinos in the latest white livery, and another run of TEAs, some original and some new liveries.

The newsletter also shows some painted samples and artwork of the other models.

Best

Anxiety is a lot like a toddler. It never stops talking, tells you you’re wrong about everything, and wakes you up at 3am.

I get nervous about just about everything. Sometimes I literally don’t know why I’m anxious. I just am and no-one seems to understand that.

Thanks Scott.  Yes, I just found this out myself.  Ben and I had some trouble with emails reaching me, so perhaps this one disappeared.  :(  Still, great news!

Chris, it wasn't a reflection of yourself, I just assumed it was missing info.

Great work on getting the posts up earlier.

Thanks for this Scott. :thumbsup: I was about to post on the other thread, asking "what about reruns?" but the thread was locked before I got a chance.

Quite a few new Pendolino options being done by the looks of it

Looking forward to the rerun of the TEAs, missed the last lot and just cant justify the £60 ea the EWS ones have been getting on eBay

Hi

Will the light bars for the Pendolino be re run? I didn’t order any originally but now I have my Pendolino I would like some.

Cheers

I’d love more Pendo’s and TEAs, just got even more saving to do... or a lottery win of more than a lucky dip line ...

I think I’ll resist another Pendolino, but would love another rake of EAs. Pricing will be interesting - will it be similar now tooling costs have been amortised, or more expensive with inflation’s and currency fluctuations.

Given the latter, plus the fact the market will clearly pay a lot more, given resale values, I’d assume a fair old price hike!

I think I agree njee. I paid £27 each for my TEAs. I would imagine they will be somewhere near the £40 mark. Just speculating.

£40 is still a damn site better for me as someone who wants some than the prices they are commanding second hand!

GF ones are showing at the 40 quid mark less a bit when they hit the shops.

Scary to think that instead of insuring your overall layout, you'll now be insuring each rake.  :'( :'(

If they can stick to £35 or so I’ll probably have another 15, otherwise I imagine I’ll get a smaller rake.

The pricing for the second batch of Pendolinos should be roughly the same as the City of Birmingham sets which were £365 IIRC? The DCC sound fitted versions will be slightly more than £95/set but not much more.

The TEAs we're in negotiation with Rapido about and ultimately some of the cost may depend on whether we need to amend any of the tooling or make assembly more costly to do other variants eg different catwalks/discharge gear/ladders.  We'll definitely do more EWS and we've suggested some others eg Petrochem Carless, the new VTG light grey batch, VTG in FL green ie no FL logo, the other 3 Enviro-blue slogans that we didn't do in the first batch but I think what we'll do is stick a poll up later this week or next on our website to run for say a month asking people which versions they'd like.

Cheers, Mike

I was tempted to sell my Greenergy rake now for a vastly inflated price and repurchase in the second batch, but maybe I'll hold fire as I'd want to replace them.

Can't decide between EWS or VTG grey for a second rake. Decisions, decisions...

Would you include 'Greenergy' in the poll too please Mike - perhaps weighting the 2:1 ratio of Blue:Green in favour of Green this time?
