Perhaps the buyers had to sign confidentiality clauses or risk being removed from the Austrain's Christmas card list

Yes have not seen any pics of that elusive BL in AN colours.
Apparently they won't be in stock in shops etc until after the October exhibition. With all the other releases coming out, who can afford everything!!!

...and there is F/A G on ebay already.

They've been out since Corio expo (along with the stupid VR livery). I've had mine since Hobsons Bay in Q2 of 2014

I agree the VR Blue livery is just plain ugly.
The tuscan 81 might be ok .....

I aborted and go a full refund, as the model I had ordered was not coming, and I didn't want It anymore, so It would of went straight on to ebay and most likely sold for a loss.

Never order and pay In full for a model that Is not available for sale In shops yet !!!!

I know photos have been asked but has anyone received theirs any further yet as I haven't even got a letter yet nor an update on the Austrains site.

Damn! Oh well that may explain why I haven't heard anything on pre-ordered models.

No, I haven't heard anything on my pre-ordered G Class either.

After it was announced that letters were being sent out, i waited about 8 weeks for a letter to show up
(which it didn't) and then rang them.  When i spoke to john it turned out that they hadn't received one of my orders (i placed 2 seperate orders) and he advised that they had to change running numbers of some of the locos and was able to adjust my order whilst on the phone.  My order was for V/line G class x4, a candy 81 and an AN BL.  My credit card was charged for the models last thursday so am expecting them to show up at some stage next week.

From what I have heard the candy 81's are not expected any time soon. The talk is 2015.

Shouldn't have put it up. Making me want mine. At least some Gs and a BL running on my layout anyway. Also, for those who have tried, are the bodies hard to remove?

Are these units shipping DCC with sound or DCC only?

Several years ago I installed a loksound ESU EMD chip into a Powerline G class. Works well.
