Seems so. Been debited accordingly.

Regards

ps this only leaves their G class as the only Vic loco to be delivered. Wonder if they'll do another besides a rerun of previous locos?? Time will tell, but a C class with a little more than a  tease would be great.

A week on, has any one seen their T's yet? I know it could be another week yet.

Yes. Mine is the APM yellow.

It seems to run well like the P class and X I got recently too.

I suppose the only way to get an order in before the cutoff time now other than by post would be by fax(?) or by email.

I do normally use the post method, but having said that....

Whats the best email address that people use in order that it is seen in time by Auscision?

I note on their order forms they list an "information@auscision" address? Do people use this one to send order to>?

I emailed information@auscision last night with a photo of the order form, Auscision replied quickly and they have already processed it and issues the tax invoice to me.

I normally use snail mail, but forgot that they were due.

RE 73LJWhiteSL's pictures of Victorian's T-Classes & the 42-class looking (that's looking like, not are).

73LJWhiteSL, how did you take such clear pictures inside?

2. Why do model companies bother with details underneath, where they can't be seen?

I can see with some of the wagons, that due to all the details underneath, it may be hard to handle.

I note the wheels on the JLX/NJLX's aren't black.

They model the details underneath because they are "scale models" of the real thing not "toy trains".

I have never been a fan of models produced in the past by companies like Austrains that asked for premium prices but lacked a lot of the detail that Auscision go to the trouble of including in their models.

I have seen many complain if companies do not include interiors inside passanger cars even though in some cases they can not be seen. I guess the companies like Auscision just try to be as accurate as possible.

The wheels look to me to be blackened on the JLX and appear to be exactly the same wheels as used on wagons previously produced looking at pictures on Auscision Website.
  Newcastle Express Chief Commissioner

I can understand modelling the interiors IF they can be seen, but when can't see anything underneath, except at the side, then I think it's going over the top. Just because rolling stock may not have detailed detail underneath doesn't mean they would be in the "toy train" category.

And going by the looks, rolling stock looks to be easier to handle with only the "needed" details,

Newcastle,


I use a tripod and a DSLR with the aperture as small as it will go and usually a 5 - 10 second exposure to get a nice sharp picture from one end to the other. Opening all the blinds and getting lots of light in helps as well. There is some good tips on this website. http://nevardmedia.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/model-railway-photography.html


Yes the 42 looking things are actually meant to be GMs factory painted Lima units that I will remotor and superdetail one day. Unless Trainorama decide to release the GMs in GNR.

We're curious now, what's the difference between the JLX's & NJLX's carriages?

I will stand corrected, but the only difference is the coding.  JLX is pre 1979/80 and NLJX was the new RoA coding (Railways of Australia).

Hi All
I noticed that Auscision are only doing RCJY coil steel wagon that has the square holes in the
side. Are there no real RCJYs with the round holes? Or are Auscision thinking the RCJY wont be
a big seller.

Looks like the car carriers aren't faraway,  got my invoice for them yesterday.

These guys just keep churning out the models, but I'm not complaining.

receiving an invoice from Auscision isn't necessarily a strong indication that a models arrival is imminent.  in my experience, the time taken from receiving an invoice to when the model actually arrives can vary anywhere from 3-6 months.

Agreed, and we haven't  seen painted samples yet. I have received invoices in the last couple of days for several projects Auscision have on the go at the moment.

They are going to need something to release at Sandown. They don't like Exhibitions without new releases, do they?
