Orders are now being taken for Revolution Trains’ forthcoming ‘N’ gauge Associated Portland Cement Manufacturers (APCM) Cemflo/PCV powder cement wagon, which is being developed in association with Accurascale.
Almost 300 Cemflo powder cement wagons were built in the 1960s, split between the Gloucester Carriage and Wagon Company and Metropolitan-Cammell (Met-Cam). Revolution Trains’ model is based on the prototype developed by Met-Cam.
With CAD work now complete, tooling will commence once the threshold for orders has been reached.
Seven triple packs of individually numbered wagons are being produced – four pre-TOPS and three TOPS packs – with each wagon featuring subtle decoration differences to elements such as numbering positions. The TOPS era wagons will be offered in silver without name boards, while the pre-TOPS examples will include the distinctive Blue Circle Cement boards.
The wagons will feature a highly detailed body and chassis, separately applied pipework and small parts, etched metal solebar details and blackened metal three-hole disc wheels.
Priced at £79.50 per triple pack, they are available to order now. As with previous projects, production is subject to sufficient orders being placed.
