The model manufacturer satisfies growing demand on human resources by recruiting its third employee.
Revolution Trains has gained a third full-time member of staff. Model railway enthusiast Mike Buick has joined the company as a third full-time member of the team.
Having previously designed couplings and detail parts in N, OO and O gauges, his role at Revolution Trains will be primarily project design and customer service. “With more and more projects under development it was becoming clear we needed to recruit someone to help Revolution grow,” explained Revolution co-director Mike Hale. “We are confident Mike’s enthusiasm and skill are what we need as we move forward with our plans.” He’ll be the third permanent member of the team, joining company founders Ben Ando and Mike Hale, and will also represent Revolution Trains at exhibitions alongside long-time helpers Paul Churchill and Gareth Atkinson. “Mike will be a familiar face to many,” said Revolution co-director Ben Ando, “and we are confident he’ll be a good fit in our small but dynamic team.”
Revolution Trains has said that Mike is a keen railway modeller in all scales and his 4mm:1ft scale layout 'Oak Road', which depicts a stretch of the present-day Great Western Berks and Hants line has been admired on the exhibition circuit since debuting in 2017. “I have been interested in railways for as long as I could talk,” says Mike. “Joining Revolution Trains is a fantastic opportunity and I am looking forward to bringing my passion, CAD design skills and eye for detail to the job.” As well as being a popular attraction, 'Oak Road' has also raised money for the charity Meningitis Now. Having survived meningococcal meningitis at the age of 20, Mike is dedicated to supporting research into the disease. Mike is formerly a member of the Fareham and District Model Railway Club and says he ‘has a passion for HSTs.’
