Wow!
Now thats seriously cool!

Considering I already have a few 49er's - I'm seriously tempted to boost the fleet!!
looking forward to seeing the blue and red terror versions that we never saw from TOR.

Now where are those 81 class samples!!!!!

I think you will find they're the O scale (7mm) 49 class bodies.

Check the Auscision web site & you find they are in fact O scale.

Just done my bit for the longevity of the hobby....emailed off my scanned order form for 4304 and 4305......to be stable mates for my Mansfield 4306.

Now to save up another $1,100- to pay for 6 decoders from DCCSound (4 for the 45 class locos I am waiting for + these two 43 class!!!).

Oh well....they say you can't take it with you!!! hahaha

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 Sad

There's too much of the creeping mystery emanating from Auscision, they would certainly have projects that they would like to do & just as likely they have done a degree of pre work in those areas, the 43 is a good example as to have a sample model out in a matter of 3 months showed how far down the track they were, likewise the 421 is likely not far behind.

What Electrics would the modeller like, given that NSW have many of their EMU's already listed, except perhaps for the SS suburban carriages, Oscar, & M sets, the only loco not included is the 85cl.  Does it mean the early VR suburbans, & I guess QR could come into the equation as another competitor has highlighted there is a RTR market to be had up there.

When it looked liked I'd stopped giving cryptic clues they had to take over the role for themselves.  Wink
  5711 Assistant Commissioner

I just have to laugh my head off reading some of the comments under the ' what do you want next regarding electrics?"
I mean here are a few sterling examples of 'going right off track"

Indian Pacific cars?
CPH ?
Tangara?????? Are'nt they already doing it?!
S Class steam loco?

Some folks just don't read the question!!

Anyway it seems that the leading contenders are the :
Vic Harris cars
S Set
QR Tilt train


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 )
  Tom66 Assistant Commissioner

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'm still more-than-half hoping that 8650 would be a surprise addition to the 86 Class run. The tri-bo mechanism could then be used as a basis for the QLD electric locos (as it was in real life).

I think there are a lot of modellers who would certainly appreciate the models you suggest as well as you wanting them, likewise there would be many modellers out there who like you who share the same view about models as you don't care about.  Having said that, there are also a lot of modellers who do care about getting those same models & who have waited patiently for a lot longer than the modern image modeller for them, along with other models that have not as yet been produced, yet have been promoted for near as long as your 1997 memories as being future projects.

The younger & more modern image modeller have a bit more time on their hands to have their wants satisfied than the older ones out there.
  Tom66 Assistant Commissioner

Not disagreeing with you at all, and I am one of them (austrains 81 for example) but I think your missing my point

Which is?
  gw0071 Deputy Commissioner

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...

Which only goes to show that what I said is also relevant.  In no way am I suggesting that older modellers have an pecking order rights, but I for one do not put down those who want the modern era only in their modelling interests, that is their right, just as it is for others who desire to model other eras as well.

The aspect that is interesting though is how some of the companies have actually changed paths over the years, some from predominately modern image, to the older transition era, while others the opposite.  Shows that there is a broad interest in the hobby & that is also very much across the age groups of modellers, where some older modellers prefer the modern image as they changed over from early era's for the primary reason was that there is more stuff available for the modern image.

I also know of young modellers who dearly want to get into the early era's rather than the modern times, the issue that is against them is the cost of models, especially those of steam loco's.

I think its evenly split between old and new era modelling.

Either that or some more grain silos.

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!!!!

There are 2 kits available, but not exactly cheap, & leave a bit to be desired as well, reason I took the bit between fingers & built my own, a not too easy but not overly hard task, but fiddly & time consuming though.
