Revolution Trains reveal Class 59 paint samples

Revolution Trains has received decorated samples of its forthcoming N Gauge Class 59 diesel locomotives. These models are now in the final stage of development before going into production.

Revolution Trains N Gauge Class 59

The Revolution Class 59 will have a full suite of lights, factory-fitted speakers in every model (and DCC Sound versions of all our variants available) and the DCC socket is accessed by a removable centre section – which replicates the arrangement of the prototype.


The switches that enable DC users to deactivate the red tail lights when running with a train can also be seen.

Revolution state that these decorated samples will be assessed and some small amendments to colours will be made. They also say customers should be aware that the samples shown here were assembled and painted by hand using components from the first test mouldings, and as ever some small adjustments will also be made to improve fit and finish, especially of the etched parts.
