There's a bloke on Facebook has put up a video of his two...in SSR and BHP colours. Very nice.

Aust Post sent me an email today saying my package (4 locos) will be here in SA on wednesday.

Regarding the fitting of a Kadee to the front....

Just reviving my old thread.

I have been using the Trix version of NZZA800 for the past 7 years or so. The only alterations I made to it previously was the bogies in their little short frames with  ...

[quote=c3526blue][quote]Like 2LaGrange said, you'll need to configure the new decoder to suit the lighting outputs.

[quote=qldchook]Help..

Has anybody experienced issues or problems with their non sound 48 class after fitting a DCC decoder. I am having problems with the headlights and marker lights not functioni ...

Set each of the boards up the way you want them, but upside down.

Use 4" steel hinges with the pins removed....and replaced with a suitable steel rod (I found that a cheap tent peg works). This ro ...

[quote=brissim][quote]The 48s available from Australian Modeller are also available with sound; those sold out on Auscisions site are only available as sound versions from AM.[/quote]Well that's confu ...

They must be going to work all weekend if they reckon they can get that lot posted out by Monday arvo!!!

Good on 'em!!

Looking forward to my 7 locos arriving!!

What is the material that the floor of the model is made from and what type of screw/bolt is supplied?

It may be possible (if it's a plastic floor) to add a nut to the top/inside and still use the  ...

Brian, Whilst I agree the loco is not perfect, saying that it is not "fit for purpose" is probably a bit of an overstatement.

I don't know your age, but I'm old enough to remember when we paid a ki ...

Just driven back to Kadina from Adelaide.....drove down specifically to have a look at the exhibition at Greyhound SA Park.

There was a good crowd; shoulder to shoulder as usual.

A diverse group ...

It's been a few months since I raised the issue of the 48/830 and the 442 projects.

Former was due around CNY and 442 shortly after that.

Does anybody (Poath Junction??) have any inside info.

They're also listed on Facebook.

Hey...!!! When does Chinese New Year end??

I only ask because the 48s and 830s were slated to arrive after Chinese New Year.

Then again, I suppose technically speaking, that could mean Christmas ...

I built two of those 400s back in the days when they were manufactured by (I think) Stephen Johnson Models.

[quote=NSWRcars]

Regarding electrical pickups, are the bogies wired to the locomotive, and how is this done? In the case of the Southern Rail 10 class there are double sided pickups fitted to the ...

Thanks Tony, Somebody has since put something up on Facebook which indicates they will be available in March.....so not too long to go now.

Last mention by Auscision about the 48s and 830s said they expected to have them just before Chinese New Year....that was back around September.

Well, I just checked and there's only 13 days to go  ...

[quote=DJPeters][quote][/quote]I am glad to see someone agreeing on this matter, all we did was point out a simple discrepancy in the finished model and all hell broke loose. I never said I disliked t ...

Well spoken Bob.... I agree wholeheartedly. You've done a fantastic job and those who criticise have, more than likely, never built anything more complex that an Athearn box car kit!!!

It turned out to be a case of the front driver tyre having come adrift from the wheel and was jammed in the "motion" gear. I had to use t ...
