From the facebook page "Auscision! Home of the Electrics! Are there any other electric locomotives and/or electric suburban sets you would like to see us produce?". No doubt it's rhetorical and hopefully a tait set is already on its way.
Earlier in the day they'd said "A few new freight wagon announcements to come over the next 2 months. Keep you eye on our website and Facebook page".
Lets hope that the announcements and delivery are close together as per usual practice, and that duplication of classes with other manufacturers is not an issue. Their is so much to do and duplications just slows the whole thing down, in my opinion
There are few asking for the 85 class but the IDR kit is sensational.
Personally I'd vote for a K Set and 8650 tri-bo loco ( buckley's that would be done )
Im looking forward to all these future releases however!
Why hasn't anyone produced something that hasn't already been released previously or doubled up on? Yes I am aware that there have been/is going to be some items that haven't been released before but for myself, and I'm sure I'm not alone this is a brief list of what I am waiting for:
NODY open wagon
NCDY slab steel
NCMY coil steel
NCMF coil steel
NKJY slab steel
NCAF/RCAF coil steel
RCQF jumbo coil steel
RCAF coil steel
RCOF coil wire
RKDF slab steel
RKLY butter box container wagon
And all of the above are variants of ONE (NODY) open wagon!!
Container wagons I am hanging for are:
RRAY five pack articulated container wagon
RRBY five pack articulated container wagonRQQY
RQQY five pack articulated container wagonRQAY
NQIY/RQIY container wagon
NQSY/RQSY container wagon
NQAY/RQAY container wagon
Last but not least, RQYY TILT BED STEEL WAGAON!!!!!!
Why aren't any of these being produced?
I read an article on the internet a while ago that says the majority of railway modellers model what they remember form their childhood.
My first memory of trains was watching NR17 hammering through the level crossing at Cootamundra north in 1997 on BM2
. That was nearly twenty years ago and as far as I am concerned there is a hug hole with regards to availability of models covering this period! fast forward 17 years and I am now an adult with a disposable income and I'm sure I am not the only one, with a lack of availability of models that cover the time period which I wish to model. If anyone wonders why there isn't any younger modellers out there then maybe you should produce something that appeals to them!
its not rocket science. Im grateful for what we already have but at the end of the day I could care less about a 40 class, S trucks or steam engines!!
Yes I am competent enough to scratch build and kit-bash, but at the end of the day scratch-building A model let a lone ten is a feet in itself and I myself do not have the time to spend building model after model after model to make a good representation of a train from this time period.
That's my two cents worth,
I must admit that I do see Tom's point especially when I compare it to my most distant recollections of rail transportation relative to the era where I find most interest. Fortunately for me this is one that pre-dates Tom's by over twenty years which if is a correct assumption, is confirmed by what's commercially available - in RTR format at least
Should Tom be expected to display respect and patience in an era where technology provides so much more possibility and distraction to younger members of society
I'm sure that various examples to contradict this outlook will be presented, but I do believe that it is a fair observation
Does time in hobby/age demographic take precedence, is this an ageist pursuit? If so, this will prove to be self destructive to the ongoing potential of the hobby's ability to attract the attention of younger 'replacement' participants and at least maintain sufficient interest to allow perpetuity
Probably a topic deserved of its own thread...
The grain silo's were an excellent release - I believe they have sold out already.
I'd love to see a NSW roundhouse release - that would be a nice addition. A 3 stall version with additional stalls available separately.
Need somewhere to store all these tasty NSW loco's!!!!
