Eureka Blog Update

 
  Dazz Deputy Commissioner

I'm sure some here will find it infuriating, but I did have to laugh at the latest blog update.

Major Breaking News






Apparently anything that happens at the Eureka offices is of such importance and general interest that it warrants immediate publication. In light of this, attached is a photo of a box sample received today from China to be used in the BCW and BSV projects. The sample has already been approved and at this stage the factory is saying that we will receive the BCW in mid- April.

It was proposed to post this breaking news earlier today but it was decided to hold it over until this afternoon so as not to over-shadow the events which took place this morning in the National Capital.

Probably for the best. If it was in pristine condition someone might have complained the time spent staining the deck should have been used  to update the website. Rolling Eyes

Is it a deck though, it might be a outdoor wooden table, but it could still use some TLC though.  Laughing

Small update on the Eureka blog - the BSV sample displayed looks fantastic. Glad I've got some on order
  Dazz Deputy Commissioner

They do look rather nice indeed.

The bar wok is very fine and the interior detail looks good too.

Quite honestly, time delays aside, the quality of the Eureka stuff really is very good overall and at the end of they day that's probably the most important thing.


  Albert Chief Commissioner

The obvious errors that stand out are the total lack of wheel sets. How mauch are they going to charge  for this?  Shocked

Then there the colour..what were they thinking? Evil or Very MadWinkTwisted EvilLaughing

I have a couple of packs on order.  Must find some sheep to put in them.  Possibly if I try search I might find a thread on the subject of ovine passengers for BSVs and GSVs.

Since I have bought two packs of BSVs I am going to have to buy squillions of GSVs from Austrains to keep the balance reasonable.  The BSV does look nice, with the couple of issues Albert pointed out corrected, and the GSVs will be coming from the same factory so should be comparable in appearance.

Best regards,

Whetting my appetitie that picture. Whether to weather the wether carrying van or not, I haven't decided.

I thought Eureka was fitting Rp25/88 wheels.  Or is that what they are and my estimation they are fatter is wrong?  Or was I wrong and they are using fatties?

The wheels certainly appear to be more of a 110 size than 88.

I must say that based on the photo's they do look the goods, while I wont be getting any as they are outside my era of modelling, they certainly seem to have lifted standards on them although I am not fussed about the brass wheels, so hopefully they are only there for test purposes.

Looking at the lettering its nice & crisp even the metal plate with wagon number looks good as well as the wagon ticket plate on the main numbe board, I think the blue wagon has an identity problem though with it not sure of its number. It also appears as if the main underframe is possibly metal from the model thats lying down, which will make for a nice weight for them.

Anyway it looks like a thumbs up for them.    
  Albert Chief Commissioner

My guess is RC just threw some wheels in the bogies for the photos. The march samples didn't have any wheels.

I'm sure a check of their adds would answer your question.  However I do feel for those who model Victorian railways for the delays in the R, certainly hope they getter a better deal than NSW modellers did with the 38 when the R arrives.
