Revolution Trains is offering the widely used MMA/JNA-T box wagons as its next model aimed at 4mm scale modellers.
More than 500 of these large bogie box wagons are now in service from Cumbria to the south coast, and from East Anglia to South Wales on stone, sand, spoil or other aggregate traffic.
They can be seen in the liveries of railfreight companies DB Cargo and GBRf, as well as VTG, Mendip Rail and Ermewa/Tarmac.
This model follows delivery of the Revolution Trains 4mm TEA tankers and will feature our customary levels of detailing.
The prototype wagons have either 9 or 11 vertical strengthening ribs with or without bodyside doors. Revolution is offering all four configurations.
The models feature exceptionally high levels of underframe detailing and depict accurate variations in buffers, brake gear and end panels.
The bogies have been designed to be the correct width and facilitate straightforward conversion to EM or P4 standards.
Versions are also being offered with factory-fitted battery-powered flashing tail lamps.
The model has already been tooled and samples were on display on the Revolution Trains stand at Warley National Model Railway exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham.
Revolution is offering the models in DB Cargo red and Ermewa grey (with and without Tarmac branding), while those in VTG/Mendip Rail silver and GBRf dark blue will be available exclusively from Kernow Model Rail Centre.
Revolution Trains would like to thank DB Cargo and Tarmac for facilitating access to the Barrow Railhead to measure and photograph the wagons.
To encourage early orders Revolution is offering an early-bird price that will increase after six weeks.
The models will be produced in these formats and liveries:
MMA DB Red 9 pillar with side door
JNA-T Ermewa Grey 9 pillar, no side door
JNA-T Ermewa Grey + Tarmac branding 9 pillar, no side door
JNA-T VTG silver with Mendip branding 11 pillar, no side door*
JNA-T GBRf blue 11 pillar with side door*
*Exclusive to Kernow Model Rail Centre.
Images attached are of the EP1 sample and some adjustments will be made before production commences – eg ensuring there are no mould sink marks in the buffer heads.
