Exclusive Class 320 EMU for Model Rail Scotland
The Association of Model Railway Societies in Scotland (AMRSS) – organiser of the annual Model Rail Scotland exhibition – has commissioned an exclusive limited edition model of Revolution Trains’ newly-tooled ‘N’ gauge Class 320 three-car Electric Multiple Unit (EMU), as 320306 Model Rail Scotland in Strathclyde Passenger Transport (SPT) carmine and cream.
Named at Glasgow Central station in February 1997, 320306 was the first item of British main line rolling stock to be named after a model railway exhibition, launching SPT’s new colour scheme in the process. It retained the distinctive nameplates until refurbishment in 2011.
Revolution Trains’ ‘320s’ are set to feature a low-profile coreless motor, Next18 Digital Command Control (DCC) decoder socket, directional head and tail lights, inter-vehicle power transfer couplers, detailed interiors, switchable cab lighting, illuminated destination blinds, interior saloon lighting and poseable realistic pantograph. Etched nameplates will also be included with 320306 for those wishing to upgrade the factory printed versions.
Priced at £295 per three-car set, they will be available to purchase at Model Rail Scotland on February 25-27 from the AMRSS limited edition sales stand. Just 150 packs will be available.
