I was at Rose Hill Saturday, and did not see the Phoenix S and E wagons. Were they actually there? I note that at Melbourne's Waverley Exhibition, they were on sale. Ah well, might have to wait till Caulfield Wink

Rod.  The S trucks were there on the SDS stand but the E wagons were on the Casula stand.

SDS/ Pheonix was at the Adelaide exhibition and had the S trucks there, as well as pre production models of the indigenous NRs among other things. Very nice indeed they are. They had most of their models there and I got myself a JHG brakevan from them. I did not see if they had the E wagons though.

A little late as Rosehill is Shut.
I attended Sunday AM.
The E open wagons were on display.
I had a brief conversation and I did not take notes.
What one of the fellows behind the counter "said it would be a bit rich if we are selling wagons and the mail order People are still waiting".
Makes sense.
The E wagons looked top notch. On reflection I did not see the S Flats on display.

The S flatcar version could also be used as a SAR wagon as when the Webb  steam loco's were transferred from the ship to Islington some O wagons had the sides and ends left of of them to transport the bits for assembly and later in life some o wagons did get cut down to just the same thing almost. Here is the SAR plan for the FO flat car.

Well if you want to cut down a SAR O wagon to get per the original way you can but a simple repaint of the VR S class flatcar version would get you the same result almost and a bit cheaper as well.

Another update on the Phoenix Models website... Laughing

Thanks Ardglen.  

So it now appears that Phoenix Reproductions are to do the D53 with Wampu and Commonwealth tenders.  Is Eureka still in the picture for these models?  It appears that the Eureka D50 mechanism will be used.  The drawings show the centre pair of drivers as flangeless.  This is incorrect for most D53 engines as far as I am aware.  The term 'TF' stood for 'T Flanged' as I understood it.  Or is this merely a suburban myth?

Happy standard goodsing,

John

The drawings of the D3 class by Phoenix are correct as far as wheel flanges go for every member of the class after 1954. Work to remove the flanges on the centre wheels started in the 1940's. The eureka mech is correct for the 53 as it was designed for use for all standard goods classes. Yes the Eureka D50 class centre driving wheels are a scale 3 inches to far apart, but it a minor compromise of no consequence.

Interesting - but perhaps better posted in the SDS thread rather than this Phoenix thread.
