390156 “Pride and Prosperity” – Pendolino in Avanti livery
The Revolution Trains – Rapido Trains Class 390 Pendolino in N gauge caused a sensation when delivered in 2018 as the UK’s first fully crowdfunded model train.
Packaged in attractive book sets, the model features motors in both driving cars, directional lights, working table lamps in first class, accurate interiors and power couplers to distribute power throughout the train and make poor pick-up a thing of the past.
It received rave reviews and numerous accolades including Model Rail’s “Model of the decade”. Now more Pendolinos are coming – in exciting new liveries!
