CLASS 320 EMU Limited Edition Model
To celebrate the return of the show after its enforced absence in 2021, AMRSS Ltd have commissioned a Limited Edition N gauge model of SPT Class 320 306 ‘Model Rail Scotland’ from Revolution Trains.
On 18th February 1997 at Glasgow Central station SPT Class 320 306 was named ‘Model Rail Scotland’ which was the first occasion when an item of British main line rolling stock had been named after a model railway exhibition and the ceremony launched the introduction of the new Strathclyde Passenger Transport Carmine & Cream livery.
To acknowledge this important part of the shows history AMRSS Ltd have teamed up with Revolution Trains to bring 320 306 Model Rail Scotland back to life in its SPT Carmine & Cream livery as a limited edition model in N gauge. Find out more about our Limited edition 320.
