Hi,

in another group back in October John Smithers announced that a running sample will be on display at the Corio Exhibition, also another model will be on display. Can a person who attended the show give some information on this, maybe even some pictures ?

I am very interested in purchasing two SCT locos, but all information that is out from Railmotor Models / Trainworld is an order sheet with some loco numbers and prices, no details of the quality of the model so far.

Cheers,

Olaf

I attended the exhibition yesterday.  Although there were many locomotives on display I did not personally see an SCT locomotive. I did see a vendor selling SCT wagons.

I was told that there has been a delay on the running model but it is coming somewhere inside the next couple months if there's no more delays to things.

Like many other modellers , I am  waiting to see how good the quality of this anticipated locomotive will be, happy to spend up big if they are a good representation and detailed etc however the SCT  wagons recently put out by Trainworld certainly required alot of work to get them up to standard. - Ie the wheels didnt turn, out of gauge, didnt swing, werent centred on the body etc..,  and the couplers were throw away and start again, all things considered at $50 a wagon is not too bad for a train that many people probably would not model.

And the PBGY's are a scale foot too high on the chassis and the bolsters are too high as well. But lowering it caused the bogies to not swing. I gave up and replaced the bogies completely.

I'll be waiting until after I see one in the flesh to judge how good they are.

I got to have a bit of a look at an unpainted SCT sample the other day and I have to say it is a very nice model. A few bits to be corrected before production starts but these are pretty minor from what I understand. Everything I saw about the model showed it to be up to the detail standards we expect these days and though I didn't get to run it, supposedly it has some good guts in it and can lug a good number of wagons around. Quite impressive to me for a first RTR loco I must say!

I now know I'll be getting one of these locos when they're released.

"Early Days"... These were due in 2010.

Interestingly, I made a comment on that Facebook page the other day and Brian Comport launched into me and then all the comments were deleted.

Apparently they cant take constructive criticism.

Piss-poor quality photos, makes it hard to distinguish between pixelation and poor production.

I'd wait for the Auscision ones!

Given how my single PBGY worked out, yes. Just wait.

On a side note they'd have to sell those RMM PBGY's for $20 each for me to get any more.

Having got them to that stage, they can't be any more than... um... 5 years away surely...       Cool

Will have to start saving

I've been hearing that they might be a mid - late 2015 release from a few sources but nothing official to be heard yet, we'll have to wait and see. I would bet they'll be out this year though

Just recieved an email from RMM:
I am very pleased, to announce we are now due to take delivery of the SCT –Gt46c locomotive, in August 2015.  Thank you so much for your continuing support of this project. We have also been advised from our factory that there will be a significant price rise.  
However I will be honouring the original price of $295.00.
But only, until the 1/7/2016. after this date there will be a price rise.
 If you wish to purchase another unit please finalise your order, prior to the end of this month.
To meet this obligation can you please pay the balance of $
as per request we are doing the LDP locomotives as well ore information on this project at a later date.

Glad they're honouring the price.  If they raised it after taking this long I'd have probably canned my order.

Considering we still have not seen any painted samples of the SCT GT46Ace I would say they are at least 6 months away, going on other manufacturers they have painted samples months before production begins so in my opinion there is no way we will see these models this year.
Remember we are dealing with Powerline here who move at Glacial speeds.
I notice they also make mention of LDPs as another project ..in other words similar to the release of 48s Tuscan two years later then candy 48s and so on.. will span about 5 years to get all the GT46Aces produced,meanwhile Auscision have already released their SCTs with all other versions to arrive in next 6 weeks I was told and they would have released all theirs and done a re-run by the time we see all Powerline/RMM GT46Aces.

The SCT is a Railmotor Models & Trainworld collaboration. Nothing to do with Powerline.
