Bring on the Auscision 48's !!!

They are doing the father (45's) might as well do the son's

Tired of waiting for ToR to get them out even with the early bird price I pre-paid way back when....I understand that there have been problems in China, but really should it take this long? Will the ToR 48 surpass the Eureka R class for lateness?

Absolutely!!

Have even been contemplating cancelling my TOR order of eight 48's fully paid for back in May 2008!!  Six bloody years ago!!

Even if Auscision don't do the 48, I'll wait and see what the TOR version looks like before I get any.  After all, the previous factories' quality is out the window now and who knows what the quality and accuracy will be like from the new factory.  I only prepaid based on that the models were coming from the same factory as the 47 and 44 with known quality.

TOR have been very lacking on updates on the status of this model, let alone showing us any test shots, especially painted test shots.  The pictures on their website are the same ones that have been there for many years.

I feel sorry for you that you have had to wait 6 years for one product that we have not even seen decent painted samples of.

Auscision have the right idea by releasing a broader range of schemes in their first run. I mean the 422 was a really good example with the exception of the rebuilt versions that should follow later on. Imagine the initial run for the 48 if Auscision actually do this model.....there would be at least 12 versions to start with. I agree that even though TOR have had their issues, 6 years is a very long wait. Also waiting that long for one or two colour schemes is even more frustrating.

In saying that, I was secretly hoping that Auscision would take on the 81 as their version of the 422 is just awesome. An Auscision 81 would be as good if not better. I'm hoping that this might be the case.

I would not say no to an Auscision 80 either. My Austrains are nice but would love an updated version.

Lets see what happens......

Father & son? interesting as the son came first, & in 3 other renditions in the family they never grew to the size of the father.

Good points although the Eureka 40cl according to the #16 newsletter had the 40cl as being in production, as approval was given, IIRC they had painted samples not long after that as well.

Those models are still at the old factory too, so the quality of it will be in that model as well as the Austrains latest locomotive products.

I was at the WR shop around 3 weeks ago on a Saturday, & they were doing tests on the latest samples from China, & they still hope for production in the next couple of months.  I think I would prefer the quality from their new factory that also produces models for the Heljan brand which have a fair reputation for quality in Europe.

If Auscision are going to do the 48 I wouldn't automatically assume it will be in HO.

Oh please let it be the 442. I'd kill for an Auscision Candy 442!

Maybe its the Guards van??? Is the one in the picture with the 44 the same type?

Behind the 442 is a BBP (Bogie Ballast Plough)......so that's another possibility.

Not forgetting some signals, rails, ballast, a signal box with vandal proof wire around it, the platform & of course throw in the nipper siting on the fence (good football supporter) & a needed car.Laughing

In the name of good natured humour which is what the Auscision team appear to have in spades, perhaps the page number of this thread might equally be an indication of what's around the corner...
  5711 Assistant Commissioner

I'd be laughing if they were considering all of the above mentioned locomotives.
I mean we have seen reference to the 442/81/48/44/49/80 so far. Also the 421/43 have also been touted with the confirmation of the 43.
I can see the 442 being possible with the GL in the wings - but struggling to picture the others.

Maybe there has been some kind of arrangement between TOR and Auscision which would make sense tooling wise but thats a long shot.

Anyway - count me in for 2 of each if thats the case and even more if the 81 is in the picture!!!

And while we are at it why not:
70/72/79/X200/41/90/45 electric to boot also!!!

Now that leaves nothing to be done!!

Love to be proved wrong but I think Ausicision is yanking the chain.

I'm tending to agree now - Thats just way too many 'announcements' or even rumours for one week.

Beautiful shot none the less!!!
The candy 81's really do set the standard for 80's motive power. Heres hoping that one day in the future when they are relics of days long gone that one will be preserved in this colour scheme!

It's a good point about the number of announcements and I would agree with the above. It's a good way to get us talking and guessing which model will be announced next. The only aspect each photo shares is the track; surely too ambitious a project.

If they were to produce an 81 that would be fantastic, and obviously all versions would be done in all colours.

Alas all we can do is wait and see.

I don't model NSW, so somebody else will probably be able to take this further, but is there anything common to each of those photos, beyond track/ballast/etc. and the fact that it's NSW rollingstock?

Edit: meh beat me to it by a few seconds.

Going out on a limb...

Auscision have purchased the tooling for the existing locos from Trainorama AND Austrains?

John Eassie is looking to get out after Liverpool this year, maybe his tooling will live on?

Maybe the delay with the Austrains 81's is to print the Auscision boxes to pack them it...      Cool

Now you mention these points, such speculation is not that unreasonable.

The Candy 81's from Austrains are months away 'apparently' so who knows whats on the cards.
The bicentennial versions are still very popular on ebay and still fetch good $$ and a reworked model at Auscision standards would be bulletproof!!!

Great thing about Auscision as I have said before is the variety of releases - they cover almost everything.
For the 81's, at least 4 road numbers in candy and the bicentennial versions is a great start not to mention the blue and PN versions etc etc.
Better than a fantasy tuscan version!??
