Revolution Trains Show First Class 59 Test Shots
Revolution’s upcoming Class 59 diesel locomotive model in N is a step closer with their manufacturing partners in China advising that tooling is complete and providing images of the first test mouldings.
The images also show the lift-off centre body panel to allow straightforward installation of a Next-18 DCC decoder and control of switchable lighting functions, and the fuel tanks with speaker recesses. Speakers will be factory-fitted to every model so upgrading to sound is simple.
The pin-point axle power pick-up can also be seen in the images, with the ‘floating’ centre axle designed to maintain optimum contact even on uneven track sections.
EP samples are likely to follow shortly to allow Revolution Trains to inspect all the components for accuracy, crispness and fit, and to begin testing the chassis.
