Some "into the wagon" shots - hard to get accurately as the train is doing 60/70mph as it passes !

Hi Das,

Those are really useful, thanks. They definitely help with the contour of the interior curved baffle.

Cheers

Hope you don't mind me asking but could you please advise whether there are any updates on how these are progressing and when the order book will be opening to order accordingly? Thank you in advance

Hello all,

Apologies for the lack of updates - an oversight.

The CAD drawings are nearing approval. This is where they are at the moment:

Original with parking brake wheel on body: This for EWS Construction, Cemex, DB red and Ermewa/Tarmac.

Revised VTG version with parking wheel on bogies and extra biodyside strengthening panels:

IMG_5561.PNG

There isn't too much left to do. Once the CADs are completed to our satisfaction we will be ready to open the order book. Assuming people sign up in accordance with the numbers seen registering expressions of interest, and there will be a staggered payment option, then we may have first samples by the Warley National Model Railway exhibition at the NEC.

Cheers

Ben A.

Although its abit late on i do have some shots from hayes and harlington, looking at my photos from about London, they do seem to be mixed in with other workings, some are mixed in with the crawley and purley portions to acton and onwards to merehead or whatley, some going out to Dagenham dock.

Hi Ben,

Nice shot - and yes, definitely HOAs involved there!

Hi Ben,

A friend of mine was asking me a few days if I'd heard anything of the proposed Cemex (oops, nearly typed something else there that could have been an explosive comment!) hoppers, and just suddenly remembered your topics on here - are you still on track (no pun intended) to have the samples at Warley? Also any ideas on pricing or staged payments? Did have a look on the website, but there was nothing obvious unless I've missed it!

Hi Rich

 

I'm afraid there is no chance that we will have samples by Warley.  We haven't started tooling or opened the order book yet (we can't until we have a price!).

 

Apologies

 

Mike

I had meant to post this at the time, but just found the TOPS consist in a pile of papers at home. Might be useful for those wanting to justify a few to add to an existing rake if they can't afford a full set.
9th August 2017, 6A21 Whatley to Acton had 66152 (DB red, modelled by Farish and Dapol) at the head of 15 RMC JGAs (Farish and NGS), with 4 HOAs on the rear, 19 wagons total. The empties ran as 6V33.
Consist was:
13707
19221
13708
17247
17208
17206
13712
17246
19246
17215
17219
19243
19227
17218
19245 (all RMC prefix)
320007
320002
320028
320044
A quick Flickr or Smugmug search should confirm the livery of the HOAs.

And, as if by magic, I have exactly 15 RMC JGAs, and 66152. What rot.

I'm still photographing every wagon (most times) in the Mountsorrel - Trowse stone trains (normally 16 but occasionally less) so have plenty of reference material when the time comes (if anyone wants it !) - including defaced examples.

Hello all,

Rapido surprised us at Warley by unveiling a pair of 3D prints taken from the approved CAD for this models. They show both variants - the originals with four reinforcing plates on the sides and the handbrake wheel on the body (at the back) and the latest VTG versions with six plates and the bogie mounted handbrakewheel.

IMG_0158.JPG

Please rememember these are prints and lack the finesse and strength of plastic moulded parts. Some thin or narrow parts are distorted slightly due to the limitations of the material, but they certainly indicate to me that Rapido have got the shape pretty much right, and that the models sit nicely on the bogies which are being reused from the TEA tanker wagons.

We hope to open the order book for these in N very soon, and they are scheduled to go into production late on next summer once the Class 92s are completed.

There are more images and information on the Revolution Trains website.

Cheers

Ben A.

Tuesday 19/12/17 saw a set of the Tarmac/ Ermewa wagons head west of London, for possibly the first time. The train was 6V98 Wembley - Whatley, which as far as I can ascertain reloaded for an additional train for St Pancras. Since St. Pancras is a Tarmac site, using the Tarmac wagons into Whatley is less bizarre than it sounds.

Anyway, the consist was 21 empty wagons as follows:

66167 (EWS)

706957013-0

706957045-2

706957017-1

706957041-1

706957039-5

706957025-4

706957050-2

706957042-9

706957008-0

706957011-4

706957021-3

706957019-7

706957047-8

706957009-8

706957005-6

706957052-8

706957030-4

706957028-8

706957015-5

706957007-2

706957027-0

 

Have a good Christmas all!

I have just noticed this post. Bogies reused from TEA tanker wagons? There’ll be those bogies underneath the 00 tankers too. :)
