Class 89 - expressions of interest!
« on: May 27, 2020, 12:17:00 PM »
Hi all

After last night's announcements the initial expressions of interest in an N gauge Class 89 have gone through the roof - 25% of what we would need to produce in less than 12 hours! Thanks to everyone that has let us know their interest - the challenge (as we found with the Pendolino and APT-E in different circumstances) is always keeping up that momentum!

Our friends at Accurascale are producing the 89 in OO for Rails of Sheffield and we've long wanted to do one in N!

To put the icing on the cake in terms of timing - the 89 is currently at Toton being repainted with the expectation being that it will be put back into mainline use!

So if (like us!) you'd like an 89 in N then please let us know at: https://www.revolutiontrains.com/class-89-in-n-expressions-of-interest/ (it works better on desktops/tablets than mobiles though may work better on mobile in landscape). There's more history in our recent FB Live video and on our website.

The quicker that we get interest the quicker we can make a decision. Expressions of interest are just that - they are not binding or committing you to purchase (though obviously we hope that people will!).

Cheers Mike

I don't think you will have any problems getting to the numbers you require.

Just it is not my era or region!

Why can't you do other icons like the LMS twins. At least they travelled a bit further south!

Best regards
Bob

Delighted to see the response has been strong for the Badger. I have wanted one for ages and was going to get a CJM after my last 92 from Chris but life got expensive and I had to pass. I even bought a 3d print kit to build at some time but hopefully now I don't have to. As a modeller of the ECML from roughly 1990 to 2000, the GNER livery will be perfect with my various rakes of Mk3's and 4's borrowed from their respective 91 and HST power.

Thanks chaps for another great choice.

Yes! I'll take all 3 (or 4 when its revealed if there is a new livery) please!

Just got to hope the interest remains high and you guys get to the level you've set for interest, of which i have registered mine.

Definitely a swallow, not a GNER as I have a CJM one and if the NEW is something else one of them.

Yes EOI submitted for this iconic loco.
I am particularly interested in the current repaint of the real thing and the livery that will emerge.
Cheers,
Ged.
