Thanks for the 8650 link. Very pleasantly surprised its only $295 (sound equipped is $395) - ie just the standard price.

Was expecting some extra cost due to the development of the potentially once-off mechanism - unless there are some QLD tri-bo electric planned for the future. Still I notice from the details the middle bogie is only a dummy bogie without even any electrical pickup. Nevertheless, an order coming in from me for a candy 8650.

Have said in the past that they have no intention of entering the Qld market, Tony and that they will leave it for others to produce models for that market.

CP vans have arrived.

Mine arrived today (13th) in Melbourne after having been posted on 11th in Sydney.  
They look good so far.  There seems to be a bit of drag on the wheels, they don't roll very freely, it's a good thing there is unlikely to be more than one on a train.  They call them "Guards Vans" on the box, the VR always seems to use "Brake Van" in any documents.

Call me slow, but I have now worked out where the drag is coming from, they have tail lights both ends controlled by switches.  The current collection devices would be causing the drag.

Two V/Line C Class locos ran through to Sydney on the Standard Gauge in the early 90's. I've found photographic evidence of C504 being one of the units. Would anyone be able to tell me what the other unit was.

Don’t buy a C class until you’ve seen our C class.

Hi Kingfisher, C504 & C505 were put onto standard gauge for through working into NSW in August 1988. Initially restricted to 80km/h if I recall correctly. During the mid 90's when part of National Rail more C class locos worked into NSW. I believe this started around the time of the Adelaide - Melbourne standardisation project. Interestingly a number of C class worked on the NE standard gauge in Victoria up till the early 80's.

Thanks for that, saved me from having to search though old Railway Digests from the early 90's stored in boxes in my garage.
