And I think they would need to have a 5 chime set of horns at the A end and no horn/s at the back.....also no wind deflectors ahead of the staff exchange openings.

They & some other items are what I was referring to.

Also as delivered 4440 - 4449 came with 4 horns of the same type as fitted to 48cl at first, they were however removed & 5 chimes fitted to them.  Most M1's also ended up with 2 horns on #2 end with the 5chime on #1 end.

All paid Victorian L Class locomotive orders have been posted (with the exception of L-10 & L-11 which arrive in March). We are now making our way through the NSW 46 Class orders and should have them all in the post by the middle of next week.

Two of my L Class arrived today (the other is in the second batch due in March).

I also found my 2 L classes waiting for me when I got home.

I'm guessing this should be obvious, but I can't seem to figure out how to unlock the pantographs.

The instructions only say to ensure that they are locked in the down position before returning the locomotive to it's box.

So fat I haven't worked how to get them into the up position, let alone returning them to the down...
Has anyone worked out yet how to lock/unlock the pantographs?

I just carefully pulled them and wiggled a little and they unlock and spring up. Push down, wiggle and they click and lock down again. All model pans seem to be the same, just have a little hook or barb that grabs onto the cross piece below the pickup arm.

They did seem a little sticky at first.

Thanks for the hint. All pantographs are now up...

The little hooks seems to be the secret to unlocking them.
A very slight (1mm or less) anti-clockwise twist of the pantograph releases them, then they just spring up.

I must have been a bit over cautious about pulling and wriggling on them, (plus I failed to notice the hooks).

Ok usual thing, a existing loco in new colours one of the current offerings. Or a older model in a new colour. Perhaps a loco similar to a exisiitng new released one, ie SAR 600 class.  Maybe the VR L with short nose, love the fun of the guess and the surprise when we find out !

I think a major loco like a  VR "C" would be daring.....  Smile

Shall I  gaze into the murky waters and think NSW have electric locos and will have EMU's, wonder if us Victorian will get a Victorian EMU now that we got a Victorian electric loco ?

Only a week to go....

Not sure what the situation is on that elusive SAR 600 class. Its surely a popular loco but has been sidelined for whatever reasons.
I'd like to think that all signs point to the C class but I guess we will find out in a weeks time......

600cl is a likely candidate & one that's logical, another news item to get the foaming going though.

A TL could be a good candidate for the surprise loco, with the original versions making it cost effective to release over in Hong Kong with the help of a silent panda partner. Much like Austrains had planned with their T/P project.
  ed31880 Train Controller

They dropped some pretty big hints that they were going to do a HO 48 class and sure enough, they announced it. They have been hinting pretty hard that a C class is on the agenda and its meets their recent criteria (operated by SSR and already produced by a competitor).  I think a diesel S class might be a dark horse.

No one has guessed it yet I reckon! Laughing  Keep trying because that is what Auscision wants.  They love to stir up the foam!  The smart money might be on a loco from a rarely modelled system.

BTW it is no longer an unannounced model because it has been announced on the blog site.  While it was announced the type of engine (assuming an engine) it represents has not been disclosed.  Hence it should be described as an undisclosed model, not an unannounced model.

Best regards,

I'd also go with existing model in a new paint scheme and probably Victorian. My guess for what it's worth N468 in VLP Red and Grey:

Could also be a Cheeseburger N in a new number or an A Class in Cheeseburger or VLP2.

I notice there is a 46 Class update on Auscision's FB page talking about some numbers running low. In the comments they've advised all 46 Class preorder have been posted out. Notice Hobbyland have received their order (from their FB page).

Hobbyland always get their Auscision products in mighty quick....

I'm assuming the last to sell out will either be the reverse or blue colours!

Received my four 46's this morning, another outstanding model from Auscision and every bit as good as the 422, 45 and 86 class models. Eagerly awaiting the arrival now of the 48, 421, 43 and XPT models.

Do the top (power connectors?) retract and extend?

Yes Pantographs can be held down or released to be in the raised position and are spring loaded, same as their 86 class and L class electrics.

Best way to release the pantographs from locked down position is to push down and twist slightly and this releases them to spring up.

All very nice models.

Now had the chance to give mine a good run, very smooth and silent runners and also very heavy for their small size meaning prototypical loads are no problem even over grades.

Hi all

What decoders with sound files are available for the 46 & 86 class?

I'm thinking it might only be a generic sound avail.

Is anyone else thinking about sound for their 46?

Ive asked Mike at DCCSound but they aren't doing a 46 file.

Any suggestions or help?

Does anybody have a clip of a sound equipped 86? interesting to hear what it would sound like besides some humming and brake noises.

Gary at Blacktown is apparently working on a custom sound file for the LokSound 4.0.

Also DCC Solutions have a page up saying they are doing one but has not been updated.
