Interesting announcement on RMWeb.

When I was with CAIB these rated as some of the most reliable wagons in the fleet.

Cool! I like these. May replace my old Farish PCA rake.

Hi all,

To say I am delighted about these is a massive understatement.   I have always loved the Castle Cement rakes and this model looks set to represent them superbly.



Ignore the ladders and platform, this pre-sample has the moulded tank that the final model will use, but 3D printed ladders, chassis and catwalk.



Also, the fit of the barrel and ends will be tightened up before production I believe.

EIther way, well done Realtack and Accurascale!  Another new kid on the N Gauge block.
 
Cheers

Ben A.

Hi

I’d expect the N ones to be a similar price to the OO ones. My two TPM kits cost £20 each many years ago.

Cheers

Wonder what the quantity rates will be. That’s a great idea, as these run almost exclusively in block workings these days AFAIK, could be tempted by 25.

I can’t see any details of livery options yet. I’ll be in for some if they're available in STS grey or Caib white.

It's hard to imagine them doing any more liveries in N than they are in OO, where they're doing Rugby Cement, Castle Cement and STS dark grey. So you're half in luck!

I’ve just read on RMWeb that the N version will be released in the same three liveries as the OO version. So, some STS grey ones for me!

You can scratch that one off of Revolution's “to do” list then, Ben.  ;)

do these only in run rakes or could you find them mixed with other types of PCA'S

I believe the Castle Cement ones tend to only ever operate in block trains (it's the only way I've ever seen them certainly), I would expect the STS and Rugby Cement ones to be more likely to found in mixed rakes, but no specific basis for that.

It depends... From what I can tell, the Rugby and Castle Cement wagons seem much more likely to run in complete rakes, whereas the plain grey ones can be seen in mixed rakes. I’ve seen at least a couple of pictures of this type of wagon running in a block train with the Metalair type (that Farish produce) and the depressed centre type (that Farish used to make).

Edit (1): njee20 beat me to it! Have a look on Flickr (try searching for Cement PCA); there’s almost a thousand pictures to choose from.

Edit (2): for some reason the cement depot at Exeter seems to have been a good place to see all three “main” types of PCAs together

The ordering page has gone live:-

https://realtrackmodels.co.uk/index.php?route=product/category&path=73_89

3 liveries, in 3-wagon packs, though it is not obvious until you get beyond the front screen that there are multiples of the 3 packs. 7 different packs in total.
