Interesting recollections guys.

Well, I for one would be over the moon to see Auscision do this loco to the standard we now expect from RTR. I really do want to C what they C. Wink

Sign me up for a couple in V/Line NOW. After all, there's a couple of blank spaces with "Coming Soon" on their loco page.
The loco even wore SSR, so if the 1st series G is any justification, you'd have to bet on it surely??

Regarding the RUB cars, which PHS remained in Tuscan for its entire life? I recall it being a regular in the Northern Tablelands Express consist. Thank you

I believe it was PHS 2294. I have a photo of it from Dec 1991 in Indian Red (or Tuscan) with modified doors, porthole type.

This car can't be easily modelled using the Auscision model because the doorways were moved. The sliding doors interchanged the open and closed positions of the baggage compartment doors and the door opening moved much closer to the end of the car. The guard's compartment doors and lookouts also moved. There was another car like this (2296?) but it was painted in the candy scheme when rebuilt. These two cars also lost the footboards and handrails that allowed the guard to move to the end of the car to reset the tail light on one side from red to white when stopped in a passing siding. 2294 did indeed remain Indian Red for its whole life after rebuilding, but it was painted Tuscan Red and Russet when built, so it wasn't the same colours for its whole life.

The Auscision model represents the PHS as built (if the site drawings are to be believed), with two GM-Detroit 75kW generator sets. A number of cars retained these small generator sets for their whole lives (maybe four of them) but examples were painted in all the schemes Auscision are releasing it in. However, all the other cars were all rebuilt with larger Caterpillar Generator sets which were required for larger trains, The Brisbane Limited and Intercapital Daylight and later the Brisbane Express and Gold Coast Motorail for example. Somewhat ironically, all the PHS vans illustrated in the prototype photos on the Auscision website illustrate the modified version and I think some of the numbers listed for production were modified versions.

Not all the cars fitted with Cat generator sets were modified like 2294 and 2296 but these two had Cat generators in their modified form.

That was a little more comprehensive than I was expecting - thank you

Could I safely say then that I couldn't accurately portray this power van from what Auscision are producing?

I'm not going to be surprised to see a bunch of these on ebay when they get released because not everyone needs 2.

I'd have thought a pack with one V/line red and one V/line orange might have been a good idea.
Edit: or one V/line orange and one WCR for example.

I think there is little chance of Auscision producing 2294 or 2296 or being able to modify an Auscision model to represent them.

It is possible that Auscision will produce the other Cat engined versions which only substitute louvres for the engine room windows although the drawings don't show this....

Hmm. The fishbelly cement wagons are item codes NCH-38 and NCH-39. NCH-1 through NCH-14 were the batwing coal hoppers. 22 missing numbers = Idea

Based on a photo of mine that I had the foresight to take at Forrestfield....
Peter Wilks was very pleased.
I thought they looked better with plain yellow baffles.

My wonder is if the mechanism will be gauge convertible?
  gw0071 Deputy Commissioner

Excellent!

Only ordered x8 at the EB price due to austerity measures - cannot recall which ones but can remember being able to easily order x8 more if $ permitted

You've certainly been busy Auscision

My wonder is if the mechanism will be gauge convertible?
Question on Facebook page and replies:
Arthur Robinson: Is the mechanism narrow enough to convert the locos to 1.5 or 12mm gauge?
Kevin Ryan: Sure you meant 3.5 Arthur.
Kevin Ryan: I did ask the same question a couple of years (2014) back, I haven't seen an answer yet. Gives me the impression that it might be too hard to answer "no"
Auscision Models:We don't know all our locos are designed for standard 16.5 mm HO scale track.
Arthur Robinson :The width of the gearbox on my 43 class would rule out any narrowing of the wheelsets and going by Auscision's reply the width of the mechanism on the 830 class would be the same. So it would take a revised design of mechanism for a narrow gauge versions in 10.5 and 12mm gauges..
