Also looking at the shots of the display cabinet - I noticed the Tangara looks a little more complete.

Imagine it was a classic case of smoke and mirrors.....
No hint of the C as a result. Does not mean its not lurking out there somewhere but I think many folks (myself included) believed it was the loco. I still think its coming - just a matter or when.

I'm quite happy it was the SCT loco - its not my era so I can bypass this one and save some money.

Yeah I have been really lucky since Auscision has turned to NSW, I have happily not bought the 45, and I don't want these modern engines. I will not run Electric because I cant stand the idea of running pantos and no o/h and am too lazy to complicate things with o/h.
So apart from the P and X's which are all paid for, and unless they bring out the rest of the X's and C etc etc, I have nothing more to invest with Auscision. I took a thousand dollars to Sandown, bought $150 worth of signals and two books. Went to Kyneton today Spent $150 on brass bits from Broad Gauge, ordered an engine repair as well. Went to Ian Wilson and bought Taggerty in brass as well as a High nose T Class. Fancy turning up at the supposed big exhibition going home empty handed Going to the little EXhibition and going home broke. Times are a changing and if Auscision gets kicked out of Sandown next year  they should think about Kyneton a great day there A great Exhibition!!

At least the SCT is a Victorian locomotive.

The Downer EDI order had an LV prefix previously used for VR and V/Line locomotives.

So we can't have people complaining that Victoria is being ignored .....

We're not.
Personally i believe we've been very well catered for particularly by Auscision (and now so with SDS and SRM), and will continue to be as there still exists a good market in missing items, and other older tooling items perceived worthy of rerun.

The point by Fairlight about manufacturers doing other states stuff also provides a good breather in being able to save for the next item on the wish list depending on what you're after.

Perhaps the Race needs an update??

Off topic, perhaps we also need a thread if we dont have one based on (as a starter) Bogie freight wagons of Victoria (and similarly ones for NSW etc) to highlight the market for modelers with whats been done kit/RTR?? Some may know this information??

Bring on the C class order forms.

I think NSW and Vic modellers are being very well catered for.
I'd like to see the SA/WA modellers addressed as well - the 600 and AL class are waiting to be represented. I guess there are good chances that these will surface in good time.....anyway there are stacks of things to save up for yet to be released. I know the 43/421 onslaught is enough for a re-mortgage of the house....
And thats not even considering the V Set, XPT, Tangara, RUB , Southern Aurora.etc etc etc etc etc.....

The steps and handrails look little too overscale on the GT36C-ACE20 locos?

Blog update 13/3, all the colours of the rainbow... Image is also on facebook where someone queried NR16's unique livery. Graham from OTM pointed out license costs for that one livery alone was over $18000 3 years ago!

NR16 carried this livery in 2009. Part of a SA level crossing awareness campaign.

I wouldn't have thought that livery had any appeal.

And imagine what the Aboriginal liveries could command in licensing costs...? They were professionally designed, not just copied from a rock painting, so someone is going to want money I'd suspect... That's what stopped Austrains doing them all those years ago, the factory was quite happy to do them.

The licence issue is one thing but I remember that I discussed this with J.E. many years ago - topic was printing methods.
Any conventional pad printing was (or still is today) not suitable to do such a complicated print when there are so many details on a side wall of a loco. There would be white underground gaps or interruptions in the picture clearly visible.
But with the latest UV-printer technology (works similar to an ink printer) it would be easy to do - when high quality print files or suitable pictures would be available. The technical side is no longer the problem in contrary to 10 years earlier.

Well I guess if they take as long as the NSW Electric sets and the P Class (which should probably get regional H sets at the same time??)  I might see them in 2020 and at a price I will never afford Surprised Having a half empty bucket day Rolling Eyes  I hope the other mob who wants to build the Taits keeps to their plan though, I sense a certain arrogance here.

Refurb Harris train too Please!!! Laughing

Also looks like the QR LDP locos have the Camera down the No. 2 end. Hope this is only on the pre production models Confused

Almost feels like a teenagers desire to send out claim it dates for his important even coming up, which always means filling the year up with the days so as no one else is game to book a party at the same time.

How many models does this make on their "futures" list? & no doubt more to come.

These were half expected. With the question thrown out to the collectorate asking what should be next, VIC suburbans are a no brainer.
Again - I'm happy as thats two more releases I can bypass and save for something else....

These would be a while off yet I'd imagine.....if they come out before the V set I will be annoyed!!!

If it had been a K Set  - I would of been in big trouble.

Makes sense, pre-orders before 12pm can be posted today then they pack the van, drive to Melbourne, and it's full price for the Hobsons Bay release Wink
