Where do you order these from?

 

Keep an eye on this thread, and as soon as Revolution Trains are accepting advance orders, it will be posted on here by either Ben or Mike

Did these run north of Inverness? If so I could be persuaded for one or two, I haven't come across any in pics yet though...

I've just had my refund back for DJMs stalled class 17 project so I'll take a pair of these in black when they go live.

I'll certainly be taking 3 or 4 of these in olive and Dutch. Excellent choice of wagon.

Having got my Class B tank wagons and a discount code for the Sturgeons, I'm now itching to place an order.

Hello all,

 

The first CADs of the Sturgeon have arrived. These will now be assessed and any modifications made.

We will shortly be opening the order book and once we have sufficient orders will commence tooling.

Cheers

Any news on when the web site will be accepting orders for these? I just received my Type B tankers and have been convinced to order a couple of these.

Ben said on a different forum that they are hoping to have them on the website very soon, but had a couple of things to sort out first.

Hello all,

 

CAD drawings for the forthcoming Revolution Trains Sturgeon engineers wagon are just about done.

There are two versions - with and without dropside doors - and each will incorporate other variations including different buffers, ends and we will offer versions with air-brakes for those modelling later periods.

Once the CADs are complete we will be in a position to open the order book. As ever the sooner people order, the sooner we can start the expensive process of cutting mould tools and preparing actual samples.

 

Cheers

Are any of the manufacturers looking at these for OO, is anyone aware?

 

Just as soon as the Class 17 disappears off the N horizon, these appear over it, taunting my Waverley route gauge selection yet again....   :angel:

Hi All

 

The order page for Sturgeons is now open on the Revolution website. Discount available for everyone if you order early.

Cheers,

Ged.

Hi there,

 

As built the doors were fully demountable and had to be removed for loads such as track panels.  So it didn't take long before doors from some wagons were left behind in the yard, or even occasionally at the trackside, and the wagons were left in traffic without them.

 

cheers

I will be ordering 4 or 5 shortly.

 

I know the Gulf Red was a short-lived late 60s livery and probably couldn't be seen into my era (80s), but are there any photos out there of Sturgeons in this livery? I checked Paul Bartlett's site but couldn't see any in this livery. There were many filthy ones with no discernible livery, of course!

Just tried to order a single Olive green without doors and the option to select no doors is not there, I can order with doors.  Am I doing something wrong, is there an issue with certain browsers or is there something I am not aware of?
