I’ve just read the information on Rainbow railways how it got the colour for Caroline, Myself and another apprentice worked at RVEL at the time and we was the only Apprentices. The information is untrue so I liked to know where it come from?

How long have you worked on the railway?  Surely in the greatest traditions of the railway, when something goes wrong you know that you cover it up by blaming the most inexperienced, if at all possible!  Or as I always say, crap only ever falls downwards!  God blesses those coated in titanium.....

Why not ask Rainbow directly if you really want to know? Can't imagine anyone here will know.

Where does Hatton's get their historian from?

 

Wikipedia.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/975025_Caroline

 

The references to 1036, 1978, 2012 and Victa Westlink Rail are all in that article.  It appears that Hattons have simply summarised what is on Wikipedia.

 

I wonder where they got the idea that it is to be an 18 pin decoder.

Hi Rory,

 

All the information we post is provided from the direct research that Revolution obtain from the close working relationships they have. This was a story they have been told about how it got that shade and creates interest to the history of the coach. Fairly typical of the workplace tales that are folklore in some industries. The real truth is probably a wrong paint code at some point whether it was written down wrong or the error came when it was mixed. The important thing is capturing the correct shade on the model which the Revolution team have obtained. 
 

Thanks

Mark

Having never caught 'Caroline' out on the network I initially didn't have much interest in this, but I finally crossed paths with her in York last month along with 37401;

After asking very politely I was also allowed to pop my head through the door and have a look inside;

It's a lovely bit of kit and all I will say further is I've just secured a sound fitted Bachmann 37401 and have put in a pre-order with Rails for Caroline. I'll be getting both weathered to just like this! 

 

Cheers,

I can never tell if that applause emote is being used genuinely or as sarcasm haha - the joys of the internet. Let's just say I was quite happy to finally catch Caroline and I'm very grateful for being able to have a brief look inside.

I don’t Disagree with getting the right livery. Obviously somebody was telling Porkies!

I can say in the case of the post with the pics on the station I meant it as "well done".

I only use it genuinely when I'm impressed.....we clearly need a "slow hand clap" for more pejorative purposes.....along with that "groan" button....

The pictures are a joy. I used “applause” because a mere “like” didn’t seem strong enough.

Is there any confirmation on the DCC socket in the 00 version and how many functions will be required to operate all of the various lighting combinations?  There was a suggestion earlier in this thread that it was to be 21 pin and this article confirms that.

 

https://www.keymodelworld.com/article/caroline-breaks-cover

 

However, I note that Hattons are describing it as having an 18 pin socket, so that implies a Next18 decoder is required:

https://www.hattons.co.uk/stocklistdatabase/779734/revolution_trains_oo_sgmis_002_inspection_saloon_975025_caroline_in_network_southeast_blue/stockdetail

 

Obviously both sources can't be correct.

 

Hi all

 

Apologies for the delay in replying - I have only just seen this. 

 

The DCC interfaces are 21-pin for 00 and Next-18 for N, I suspect that is where confusion has arisen.

 

cheers

Well, half the ensemble is here! The sound of a tractor ticking over in the kitchen had the dog going nuts haha.

Will you be supplying a sound chip for Caroline with a bunch of NR higher-ups nattering and scoffing sandwiches and crisps?

Era is everything. In previous times, I suspect Caroline may not always have been 'dry'.

I'd happily have one in N gauge for Draxbridge if they are still doing one. 

 

The N Gauge version is still available to pre-order direct from Revolution: https://www.revolutiontrains.com/product-category/pre-order/ngauge/caroline-inspection-saloon-n/

EP samples are expected soon according the their latest news update.

Stumbled upon this, looks just perfect! Hoping for an Accurascale DRS Compass 37423 and a Bachmann DRS Compass 47818 to be announced to run with her! Bachmann's 37409 shall do for now!
