Exclusive Revolution Trains Class 313s and Barrier vehicles from Rails of Sheffield

Rails of Sheffield have announced three exclusive Revolution Trains Class 313 models, including the highly modified Arlington Fleet Services barrier vehicles.


In 2014 two outer driving cars from unit 508207 were converted at Arlington in Eastleigh into translator units coded T7 to enable locomotives with standard hook and shackle couplers to move multiple units fitted with tightlock couplers.


The two vehicles, 64664 and 64707, were painted bright green and named Liwet and Labezerin in 2016. Often seen travelling to and from deliveries behind a GBRf Class 66, the pair offer a complete train in a single box.


The models feature a working tightlock couplers at the cab ends and standard N gauge couplers, with working directional red tail lights, at the non-cab ends.

The former commuter unit was chosen for this role as it can operate on either overhead and third rail power and has can be used on restricted gauge routes.
