Somehow I can not see those SAR SOC type wagons being a real seller unless of course you model SAR/ANR standard gauge that is. As they were captive to that gauge almost and very rarely seen anywhere e ...

Whilst on the subject of pre-production models or actual production models it is stated on the Eureka blog site that the three models in the photographs are actual production models so if the body doe ...

Also rather ironic is that the L class steam locomotives where almost built alongside the diesels for Commonwealth Railways at Clyde Engineering. There is a photo of a L class and a GM diesel standing ...

Here is a link to a photo of an Algerian RSC2 which is almost a 40 class even having a tapered cab side and buffers etc. Not quite a 40 class but very close to it!

Someone has a death wish by the looks of it!  I have no sympathy for some fool doing this though my sympathy lies with the train crew that hit him though and those that have to remove the remains!

Other than the nose of the Trainorama 48/830 the only other things wrong with them are the coupler heights but nothing that a Kadee of the underset type I think it is will not fix and then there are t ...

Unfortunately new models in this day and age all go for what some call outrageous prices as the detail on them gets better and finer. So be prepared to be shocked a bit on some new carriages prices. T ...

One hopes that it is just the fact that the bodies were just plonked onto a chassis to photograph them though, but as previous people have pointed out it seems every Eureka locomotive seems to have hu ...

Also what app do you use if the car becomes bogged. It does happen now so it will still be a problem or are they going to include an app in the car to get you out of a bogged situation. If the car is  ...

[quote=NSWGRules]You're all making terrific observations on the 40 class. I'm learning heaps. Thank you.

I'm also not one to overly criticise model coys for producing HO scale models for us to go ...

Hmmmmm I was hoping to get one or maybe two 40 class locomotives but so far what I have seen does not make a good impression really. Shiny wheels, brass strips not blackened, possibly sitting too high ...

The stainless steel cars might get bought by one of the big players in the railway game though, relay cars anyone!
