I think SDS Models were considering releasing some VR ones that have the same 38' welded underframe as their VR RTC program. Timeframe unknown.

I see a number of the N Car, E Car and RY Wagon sets due to be re run in Jun 16 have already sold out on pre order.

Best get in quick depending on what you're after.

I did ask Auscision about the possibility of the 600 at an exhibition when they released the 45 Class. They said not in the first production run but will look at it in the second run.

Similar to th ...

[quote=David Peters]Yes today is the last shift at the Leigh Creek mine and so an era comes to a halt and probably so does the coal trains as well. They might run the trains till they clear all the co ...

The JX / VPCX Cement Hoppers were at Forrestville in VR and V/line. 2 Wagons per pack and 2 different packs per livery. Price $165 per pack. Wagons were all in new running numbers.

I'd also go with existing model in a new paint scheme and probably Victorian. My guess for what it's worth N468 in VLP Red and Grey: ...

G'day All,

Don't know what it's worth but I drove along the neighbouring highway yesterday (23 Dec 14) and saw a Landcruiser Ute Hi-Rail cruising along the tracks at Tutye at approximately 1125 h h ...

Cut away valance T Class T1 Product Page up and running. Can't get the link to work.

Anyone had any joy contacting Austrains recently?

I've been trying collect the rest of my order of G Class since the Liverpool exhibition but had no luck via email or phone.


And hopefully a 700 Class too for the SA (and to a lesser extent Vic) modellers.

[quote=AdelaideHills]exactly - there are many modifications to do on more recent versions and they need additional sliders and inserts - and money as a matter of fact.

That's why I'm waiting on more ...

Great news. Just need the 830 Class order list to be put up so I can pre order them!

Thanks Pressman.

Got any photos of your time working there?

Interesting your comment re the Northern entrance. I recall seeing an ATLY Boral Gas LPG Tank Wagon parked there intermittently during ...

G'day All,

Just chasing some more info about Soda Ash traffic originating in SA.

My understanding is it used to be shipped by rail from ICI/Penrice at Osborne. When did this traffic cease? Also  ...

I spoke to the Auscision guys at the Thornleigh exhibition about the 600 Class and they said it wouldn't be done in the first run of 45s but would be covered in a second run down the track. Timeline n ...

Not sure how long it has been up there for but anyone checked the new additions to the future release page lately:

Johnny's Pages has some links to various IP lash ups in the 80s. A few examples below.

My BLX / VLXs showed up yesterday but did not get them from the post office till today.

They look the goods.

My parents passed through Pinnaroo today and advised there was grain train behind a GM and a 700 loading at the complex opposite the quarantine checkpoint. Sadly no pictures.

G'day All,

Spoke to SDS at the Thornleigh Exhibition.

They were most disappointed with the factory and looking forward to a corrected version as previously mentioned.

SDS have spare parts ava ...

WBAX wagons arrived in the post today.

G'day All,

With the pending release of the Southern Rail Models L Class can anyone advise of their operations in SA?

I have seen pictures of them in the late 1980s on hire to AN during loco shor ...
