Revolution's Warley Update

Revolution Trains has revealed development on several new model projects at this year’s Warley National Model Railway Exhibition.


Leading the charge is the company’s all-new 'OO’ gauge FNA-D nuclear flask wagon which has progressed to the decorated sample stage, together with a first Engineering Prototype (EP) sample of the ‘N’ gauge version.


Eight differently numbered models in each scale will be available, priced at £32.95 each.

Also on display were first EP samples of Revolution’s newly-tooled ‘OO’ gauge Class 18 Clayton hybrid shunter, representing the Beacon Rail and Tata Steel variants, for assessment. Whilst these EP samples don’t feature working mechanisms or lighting, they enable the development team to evaluate the fit and appearance of parts.


The new 'OO' gauge model will feature working light functions, specific locomotive details where possible, DC and DCC sound-fitted options and a choice of Beacon Rail blue, Tata steel pale blue and Sellafield blue with yellow handrail liveries. They will be available to order exclusively through Rails of Sheffield.

Finally, Revolution Trains has confirmed that it is to produce another batch of its popular ‘OO’ gauge MMA/JNA bogie box wagons.


As well as a re-run of the DB red examples, the company has also added a selection of colour schemes representing the prototypes that have appeared since they were originally released in 2019, including Cappagh blue, Touax maroon and Wascosa/Network Rail yellow.

Some minor tooling modifications will be required to ensure the models reflect changes made to the prototypes, with release anticipated during 2023.
