The Revolution Trains N gauge TEA tankers, produced for us by Rapido trains, are now dropping through letterboxes - or rather, being delivered in signed-for parcels by Royal Mail.
Announced in March last year, these models have taken just over a year and a half to go from dream to reality and we could not have done it without all the supporters who looked carefully at our plans, assessed our credibility and decided to trust us with their money.
We would also like to thank Rapido for their hard work, in many ways going beyond the call of duty to deliver models with prototypical detail differences around catwalks, discharge chutes and brake gear.
From prototypes to packaging, they have not skimped or spared any effort to make these models as good as they could be, in my view.
These are the first ever RTR crowdfunded models for the UK market, and while there is a separate thread on the wagons here, but it seemed appropriate to mark these first deliveries with their own post.
It may not seem like much, but to us it's a small piece of model railway history!
