I'm struggling to find a reason for one of these finding its way onto LSWR lines (I was Large Chicken :)-a-hoop when I found out City of Truro used to be used on runs from Didcot to Southampton) so maybe by the time these come out I will have found an excuse :)

Otherwise congratulations to the Welsh coal tank. Iechyd da!

Great news, except for my wallet, because like buses you wait a long time for one you want and they suddenly 3 come along.

I paid a deposit for a DJM KING, then earmarked a couple of Revolutionís Parcel locos and now I want one of these (2 if they do a Shirtbutton version).

I look forward to seeing more detail but will it be on Revolutions web site or will Sonic launch there own web site?

Oddly enough there's this announcement from November 15th on RMWeb: http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/139428-revolution-announce-56xx-in-n/ though it doesn't seem to have attracted much attention.



Oh, that is an Admin trick!  I do the same, but slightly different.  To save time, we create the posts/threads in a hidden area, and then publish onto the main forums when it is the right time.  I tend to copy and paste into a new thread to make it 'new', rather than looking older.


I'm always ecstatic when we become the first to announce something new to the hobby. :claphappy:


Aha!  :thumbsup: :beers:

You lovely people. Every time there's a wish list this loco is my vote. I have no clue if any reached Oxford but I don't care as in my world they did :D I can appreciate those who model other regions feeling a bit hard done by, but with this and the DJ Models Mogul my ship has come in.

My feelings exactly - I've had to rely on Union Mills to add to my Western Region loco stock (suitable for secondary lines, anyway)!!!! :bounce:

This: http://shedbashuk.blogspot.com/2015/06/oxford-1936-1966.html seems to indicate so, if I'm reading it right.

I'd agree with that analysis.

Stunning news,  especially when it's followed up with a 72xx :P

Going back about 20 years ago I started collecting US outline N-scale, because of its better quality, and have acquired a far bit over time. With all this quality British outline about these days and announcements like these, I foresee a rather big rationalisation of my US stuff over the coming months.

Oh dear.

That's next year's Christmas pressie sorted.


Quite.  A very common loco on WR lines in the Birmingham/Black Country area.

Some were based in the Leamington area. Close enough?

Very nice, though as with others, not my region.
Looking at the wheel arrangement though, would be nice seeing some alternative bodies to fit onto the chassis to do other region's 0-6-2T engines.

Hello all,

Three pages of comment before I was able to have a look at this thread....!

We are delighted that people, for the most part, seem enthused with this loco.  Not our choice (we know next to nothing about steam) but one that came from Colin Allbright and Sonic models.

There will be more information on our website in due course and usually cross posted here too.

In answer to the question about the APT-E - this has now reached minimum numbers and once we have finalised the exact specification with Rapido we'll be opening the order book properly.

Cheers

Ben A.

Woohoo

At last a ready 2 run version. I've got the white metal kit stashed away somewhere (safe  :D) but haven't been able to find a chassis for it at a price I'm prepared to pay. Looks like I don't have to now. Way to go Revolution
