@Bob G  @emjaybee

Reference your seeking of non-door Sturgeons for track panels, this thread may be helpful.  Bulking up of the inside for the panels to fit over the top of the doors. May be an alternative solution:

Nice reference. Thanks Scott.

Hello Mike,

Please forgive my ignorance here, this is the first time I have seen your Sturgeon models; do they include bogies or will I have to source these myself? Thanks.

They are all complete wagons. The only bit I point out are the liveries available
 See revolution trains website for details

Thank you.

The reason that I ask (what might appear to be a daft question), is that I couldnít see any bogies in the photographs and Iím sure I have bought kits in the past without them and had to acquire them from other sources.

The bogies are TINY but magnificent RTR wagons!!!!

Just a point that caught a few people out, IF you want to load with track, buy the doorless version as the panels wont fit inside the doored version!!

You won't be disappointed with them!!!!

Thank you  :)

Not sure if I will get any just yet, trying to decide what rolling stock I actually want in addition to what I already have.

I must endorse what others have said, the Sturgeons are exquisite models and it's well worth adding even a couple to a PW train.

They are only made in batches according to how many were bought when first crowdfunded, and there were not that many spares for sale in many shops. If you dont get them now you probably wont get them first hand, and will have to buy on EBay or other secondhand route.

If you end up passing on them and look to get them later on places like eBay chances are you will pay a lot for them, the original TEAs go for hundreds, there was an 11car DCC/Sound Pendo that popped up today starting at £750.
Support crowdfunding - itís the way forward

Revolutions class 321 needs your help, letís make it happen.

They definitely come with bogies and wheels - all our things to date have been RTR!

We've got a small number of Sturgeons available for sale following our recent stock take if anyone is looking for any: https://www.revolutiontrains.com/product/sturgeon/

I'm afraid that we don't have all the versions as some are sold out - C&M, Colletts, Kernow, Osborns, East Somerset Models and Rails might have any versions that we are missing.

Cheers Mike
