Revolution goes Cartic crazy
Revolution Trains unveiled its next 'OO' gauge wagon project at the Great Electric Train Show on October 2 - Cartic-4 car carriers.
500 Cartic-4 double-deck car carriers were built in the mid-1960s for use on Motorail and automotive freight traffic. Each articulated set comprised four vehicles, sharing five bogies and operated from 1966 through to the mid-2000s, when the last examples were withdrawn.
Following the previously announced 'N' gauge model which is currently in tooling, this all-new 'OO' gauge version is currently at the CAD stage of the production process. As with the prototypes, the models will reflect detail differences and alterations over the years including anti-vandal protection.
Seven different liveries are planned covering BR blue with Motorail branding, MAT blue, Silcock and Collings brick red, Silcock and Collings brick red with side screens, Silcock and Collings brick red with side screens and roofs, MAT blue with 'Expamet' side mesh and STVA pale grey with 'Expamet' side mesh.
Prices have yet to be confirmed, although early discounts will be offered for a short period.
