I realised last night we accidentally made a Revolution advert!

Ok, disregard the Falcons, but they are at least available in N so the whole train can be modelled. 59003, super tench and 14 Falcon. This would all become Friday's (22/10) 6O41 to Eastleigh

Whilst browsing Flickr, I stumbled across these gems (clicking the picture will take you to them on Flickr).

59003

 

22.11.19 HUNGERFORD COMMON 7A09 07.17 MEREHEAD TO ACTON YARD.

59003 on a double portion 7A09 Merehead - Acton, on hire to Freightliner at the beginning of the Mendip contract. Both Ealnos JNAs and HOAs included in the consists.

 

What appears to be a wagon maintenance move, modelable in N with the megafret and KFAs available.

 

59003 - Portway Lane, Elford, Staffordshire

A 00 version would be nice,we have waited long enough for a high spec of the super shed.

 

Never say never, but given Dapol have a OO model fully tooled it really wouldn't be a good use of money for any other manufacturer to duplicate the 59 in OO.

Yes that i know and today there is a guagemaster announcement of 59003 in GBRF in europort so not as it is now for Q1 2023. The Revolution N scale looks more inavative than there N so they may aswell have an 00 one.

 

It's not something that we're looking to do at the moment Eric, we've got lots of other projects that we need to finish of first. Perhaps a 5in Gauge one would be a good idea? :D

It’s small enough in 4mm Eric, let alone trying it in 2mm!! 
 

In truth, we do genuinely have a lot of projects that are higher priority than a 4mm 59. I’ll be making do with my Hornby / Lima conversions.
