I had wanted a candy XPT but the Countrylink matches some other rolling stock I have. Either way, hard to pass up!

Streamliners B61 would be a given, would be nice to see CRL B75 done also.

And check out the foamy New South Welshmen who want one in Candy. You would think that they would already have enough locos in Candy Rolling Eyes

I would think these requests were just a stir. A certain other manufacturer has released a few fantasy liveries on their locos.

Can't see Auscision ever producing a fantasy paint scheme on one of their models. They tend to pride themselves on accurate models with lot's of body and livery variations as per the prototype.

HI

Hope they have some sort of traffic management plan to deal with all the traffic coming around their area on Saturday morning. People may even camp on their door step, wouldn't that be a sight.

All jokes aside, it is certainly a large consignment of locomotives.

THAT'S A RELIEF
I was beginning to think they were in the container I saw on the news on the rocks.
I was waiting for an announcement that all models had to be collected from the Evans Head fisherman's co- op.

Hello PJ,

Can you (or anyone else with the knowledge) advise how many 48/830's are in each box.  I can then work out the approximate quantity of 48/830's delivered in this run.

Happy counting,

John

Hi

Mentioned in their 2018 update, 94 different body versions/liveries and an average of 50 per body version/livery which comes to a total of 4700 models.

94 different body version / liveries (actually 47 non-sound and 47 sound models)

Average of 50 models of each version

94 x 50 = 4700

Let's call it 5000 for good measure

For "liveries" there are 11 x 830's and 36 x 48's = 47 versions. Each of those come as sound and non-sound so 47 x 2 = "94 different body versions/liveries".

There are 12 locos in a box, 42 boxes on a full pallet = 504 per full pallet. 12 pallets long and 2 abreast in a container -> 504 x 12 x 2 = 12096. But not all pallets are full. They'd said "we have 94 different body versions/liveries with an average quantity of 50 units per version/livery". So that says minimum total would be about 5000. box count using the internal shot of the container makes me say it'll be around 10000.

Deliveries ….

Did anyone here join the throng at Powers Rd on Saturday to get their models "hot off the press" ?  Was there a queue of cars blocked back to the M2 exit?  I will wait for good (??) old AusPost to bring mine.

Any first thoughts?

Happy alcoing,

DCC Instructions .…………..

Auscision have added a pdf of the DC/DCC instructions to their website under the 48 and 830 products pages.

Production Quantity ………

Thanks PJ, I thought that you would have a good idea of what is going on, well done.


However, looking at the photo taken within the container it is fairly certain that the boxes at the front of the container do not contain H0 48/830 class as these boxes are significantly larger.

Assuming that the photo of the pallets outside the container are all of the 48/830 models, then I get 12 pallets for 480 boxes (as best I can determine from the visible portions of each pallet).  Thus 480 x 12 = 5,760.  I would say, at an educated guess, that this run is probably in the order 0f 6,000 units.  But will we ever really know?

Happy counting,

John

PS;  Yes, I know my assumption could be wrong.

48' & reefer containers, along with ford/holden cars, are also due now. I'd already examined the pics to see if there was any box coding to help solve the content / numbers mystery.
