FERRY VANS ARE AWAIT­ING OR­DERS

Model Rail (UK) - - Model News -

Rev­o­lu­tion Trains has un­veiled its next ‘N’ gauge ready‑to‑run wagon project: the Car­gowag­gon ‘twin’ ferry vans, built by Duewag be­tween 1986-1991 for cross‑ Chan­nel freight traf­fic. Due to their flex­i­bil­ity, the per­ma­nently cou­pled four‑wheel ‘twin’ ve­hi­cles have been used to carry min­eral wa­ter, newsprint, bagged clay or ce­ment, whisky, cider, pet­food and nu­mer­ous other goods to and from des­ti­na­tions as wide­spread as Corn­wall, the High­lands, North and South Wales and des­ti­na­tions in South­ern France and Ger­many. They can op­er­ate in blocks, or in smaller num­bers in mixed ‘En­ter­prise’ trains. Three liv­er­ies are planned ‑ orig­i­nal Car­gowag­gon, Per­rier wa­ter, plus re­vised Car­gowag­gon and re­vised Car­gowag­gon with a work­ing flash­ing tail lamp. Guide price is £38 for each twin, £108 for a triple‑pack of twins and £40 for the sin­gle set of twins with bat­tery‑op­er­ated flash­ing tail lamp. Once Rev­o­lu­tion has ad­e­quate in­ter­est in the model, it will be­gin work on CAD de­sign and tool­ing. If de­mand is strong enough from ‘OO’ gauge mod­ellers, Rev­o­lu­tion would con­sider pro­duc­ing a ‘OO’ gauge ver­sion. For more in­for­ma­tion, see www.rev­o­lu­tion­trains.com
