Revolution Trains is producing a limited number of N gauge models depicted 59101 in its eye-catching new green Heidelberg Materials livery.
The locomotive was previously in Hanson colours, however, the parent company has now decided to apply its own branding to locomotives serving its giant Whatley Quarry in Somerset as they fall due for repaints.
Revolution’s Ben Ando and Mike Buick were invited to Whatley on December 5th last year – the day the locomotive arrived after being repainted at Arlington, ready to pull its first service train.
At the time of the repaint, the models were in full production, however, the factory agreed to produce a small number in this new livery, offering N gauge enthusiasts the opportunity to keep their fleets bang up-to-date.
The models can only be ordered directly from Revolution Trains and are expected to be in the UK by the end of February or early March.
