Hi All,

Late this afternoon we received painted samples of the BOB Cars from our factory.

We'll post photos of these cars over the weekend as soon as we get a chance to.

First impression is that they look great.

The delivery date is still to be advised, but they're a step closer.

Hi All,

We've just posted the first image of our new BOB Cars, the terminal car from Set 72 HLF 444.

It's been uploaded to our Facebook, Flickr, & Blog sites.

We'll post more images over the weekend of the Tuscan & Russet, Venetian Red, & Indian Red colour schemes.

We hope you like it.

Just. Wow.



I don't even want these cars and I think they look amazing. I wish the Austrains car interiors looked this good, though I suspect it will be reflected in the price of the cars? In any case, top marks OTM team!

Hi Ben and all,

We've had to adjust the spoked wheel mold (new tooling) and bogie mold (minor change) to fix the running capabilities of the cars.

This has added around $5,000 to the cost of tooling for the cars.

We're currently working out the revised price for these cars while being mindful that they come in a 8 car set.

We should have a new price devised in the next days and we'll let you know when the order forms will be available.

We're currently checking the painted samples to let the factory know what changes are required for the production run.

We'd actually hoped to have them here by the Queens Birthday Exhibition but at this stage the dispatch date from the factory has slipped probably until late August / early September this year.

I hope this helps,

We've added photos of the Indian Red & Venetian Red cars to our Facebook page and will update the Flickr and Blog later this evening.

Another supposedly uninterested modeller but I must admit - they look mighty fine. May have to give the money tree a shake...

Couple of questions - are they still coming in 4 packs and more importantly, toilet bowls?

HI gw0071,

The models come in our standard OTM packaging.

There are 4 models per pack, there will be 2 packs supplied to make up the 8 car set.

We're just sorting out the postage rates now to finalise the order form so it can be posted online.

Yes it has toilet bowls and wash basins for your convenience, but you'll have to supply your own overhead water tank as we can't ship liquids through Australia Post Laughing

Doesn't appear to have been mentioned that set/livery details and order form are online http://ontrackmodels.com.au/models/BOB . My order is already in the mail Smile

Now I'll get back to pondering how many TRC's I need if anyone announces them in RTR Wink

Hi All,

Thought I had hit send on the button but apparently I didn't.

Yes the BOB Car order forms are now available on our website.

At this point they're currently due mid to late September.

Our next project the TRC 38' Refrigerated Van are currently being designed with Engineering Samples due around the Liverpool Exhibition.

More details on this project will be released in a couple of weeks.

TRC CAD drawing had been posted to OTM's facebook page last night - http://www.facebook.com/pages/On-Track-Models/194547763973725 so it was out in the public arena before I mentioned it. You don't need a facebook account to view the drawing, info or comments. You can also view pics of the BOB cars and other models on there too.  Well worth a visit.
