Auscision seem to have gone to a lot of expense to produce a WAGR WBAX when there is no locomtive available to WAGR modellers with which to pull them. It may just be wishful thinking on my part, but surely an L class must be planned?

Great observation - I'd say a L class is a hot contender.

The WBAX being gauge convertible traveled all over Australia on both the SG and BG. Most of the time it would have been between Perth and other capital cities but from time to time they would have also traveled to country locations. So even if there was no sales to WA modelers there would be plenty of sales in NSW, Vic and SA.

I accept that they were well travelled but I didn't realise they would be a popular enough modelling subject to warrant investing in without a WA market. Anyway, I'm still desperately hoping for an L.  Wink

Here’s another two cents’ worth of contribution to the “What’s next from Auscision?” debate.

Looking at the firm’s current and back catalogue I see several models for which SSR group liveries are, have been, or will be buyers’ options. These include the now-archived ‘O’ scale 44 and also the magnificent CEY/SSR C44aci in the same scale which stunned us (me anyway) at the recent Liverpool show.

If there’s a bit of an SSR trend happening here then I wouldn’t exclude the C, G and even GM classes from speculation about what might be in Auscision’s middle and longer-term pipeline, even though good r-t-r models of all these types are already available or on the way from other suppliers – though not in SSR’s black and yellow colours.

Stranger things have happened. For example, Auscision’s website still carries details of a very-short-run limited edition arrangement with Austrains which apparently created two versions of the lovely little T Class in SSR’s black and yellow, and also two CFCLA examples.

Just speculating!

Nice to see. Particularly the V/Line L1156 Radio Equipped.
A pity though, that all the V/Line liveried versions seem to have the standard pantographs instead of the C type where fitted and shown, in thier prototype photos on the L class page?

That aside, a nice looking model it appears to be.

The WBAX was also used by Victoria as after a derailment that wiped off 3 VR louvre vans, WAGR was forced to give VR some of their box vans to make up the difference. So I wonder if they will do the Victorian version of them at all these were coded VLEX and there was 3 of them numbered 873, 874 and 989. They were painted red according to the photos and data on page 117 of the Norm Bray and Peter Vincent book " Bogie Freight wagons of Victoria, 1979 to 1999".  This book is volume 3 in the series of these books!

Interesting the prices that are being offered in both in full Pre delivery prices, & even the after delivery prices.

Given from what I have seen Auscision have usually stuck pretty well to their advertised prices without any sneaky "expected to be" price for the after delivery prices, I think they do represent value when compared to the opposition who are constantly making the point of price rises in China, & the models reflect that when arriving..

I guess they must have the only factory that is exempt from the salary increases mandated every year to follow the New Year shutdown, or it is highly cut to the bones efficient or that there is subsidisation from other sources for their models.

Especially when you consider that the rerun of the Austrains 442's which are firmly stuck in their Basix range are going to be priced at $245.

Perhaps the rumour about someone else doing the 442 is true then?  Mind you if another was reasonably close to production, now would be the time to announce it, to keep customers from being disappointed after wasting money on a seriously outdated Austrains one?
