As for feeling sorry for Trainorama Why ?
They have had years to produce a 45/600 and have not.
The best thing for Trainorama to do is to concentrate on delivering 48 and GM locos that we have been waiting years for.
At least with Auscision we know we will see the loco.

I note that the big four Manufacturers Auscision.Austrains,Eureka and Trainorama have not produced a single QLD Loco or item of rolling stock which indicates to me they have little faith in making a return on the investment required to produce such models.

Good luck to SRM with their first QR loco and I hope it sells well for them.

I don't think its entirely Trainorama's fault that they haven't managed to get the 45/600 released before now. I'm sure it wasn't their intention for this delay! They have done the right thing and are indeed concentrating on getting the GM's & 48's done, don't forget not only did they lose the factory they were using but they have also had their own change at the helm.

Re why no one has done QR models as yet, well it's pretty clear that Austrains don't take risks, so they were never going to produce a QR loco when no one else had yet done so.  Trainorama are busy getting the aforementioned models done so who knows what they may consider in the future. Eureka are concentrating on mostly NSW steam with the odd VR steam era models so again they are not likely to change their market.  No, the only other company likely to produce QR outline other than the two who do currently, is Auscision, and I have no doubt that whilst they have said that they are not going to at this time, I'm sure they are watching things very closely.

Re Auscision and the 600's, I'd hazard a guess that they are ascertaining the potential of a 600 right now, of which the amount of comments online in various places will give them some indication, along with I daresay people emailing them and indicating what they want.  Personally I'd be quite surprised if they don't do them, but if they do, I'm very sure there won't be many made.

I'd be up for a couple of 600's, a couple of mustard pot, a maroon and silver and a couple of Green and Gold.

Given the 73 class was a hood type loco (albeit much smaller), here's hoping that the forthcoming 45 class from Auscision will be supplied to the market DCC ready and space has been designed in / allowed for a suitable speaker and decoder location.

Fingers crossed.

Er, the 45 is a fair bit larger than a 73 so there's plenty of space to fit a decoder....

Make that a "sound" decoder + a speaker enclosure. I agree that there should be ample room to fit these components under the long hood.

Er, Thanks for the heads up....but I did actually acknowledge that the 73 class was smaller.......

If you refer to other manufacturers NSW hood type locos recently released models to market (am thinking 47 and 49) were jammed packed within the body by the time the required drive train / gear towers etc. was considered and the decoder and speaker were fitted where possible - a very tight squeeze. Speaker ended up in the cabs and decoder just fitted a top of the motor / drive train

No doubt the forthcoming 40 class diesel hood type loco from another importer / manufacturer will be the same?

Having said that we shall just have to wait and see what eventuates from Auscision...in regards to their 45 class model

I've recently ordered 2 packs of TNT 40' containers from SDS. I haven't read right through my AMRM yet, so I haven't seen the ad.

Seems funny that 2 different mobs are both making TNT 40'ers.

Roachie,

Auscision's TNT 40 footers are the later variety, while SDS do the early version.

Facebook - the crap that happens when people spend too much time talking about their life, to the detriment of actually living it!.

Clearly I'm not on facebook, nor should i be required to, in order to see what Auscision has in the pipeline to guess about etc.

It is (correct me if I'm wrong) what your own friggin website is for? Yes?? Or if not, surely this page would be better than that other idiocy!

Regards

ps. the reality of Facebook aside, a good model from Auscision

having looked at Auscisions website, and not knowing prices, i'm guessing the NPS-16 set will be about $1400 +/- $100

Phew, you just beat Poath Junction by 30" in announcing the new model.

I guess a lot will now loose interest in the AMRM's articles on scratchbuilding the Aurora set. It seems like scratchbuilding will be a thing of the past soon. Just wait long enough and your required model will be produced.

You don't need a facebook account to view all the sneak-peeks and gossip on the Auscision facebook page. Just follow the facebook link from the Auscision website (it's http://www.facebook.com/pages/Auscision-Models/136260326407914 in longhand) and all is revealed. The only thing you can't do without a facebook account is add comments and 'likes'.

Wow, with every over sized packet you get a "free" set of brass horns.

Auscision might sell me something soon.  An MLV is coming along.  Then there is the 45 class diseasel.  Now an RUB set plus four stainless steel sleepers to make up a full complement Brisbane express.  Good to see their range getting broader to cover real railways.  NSWGR in the 60s, not under wires.

Best regards,
John
