It proves thar the customer couldn't give a rats ar$e about what may be such trivial oversights

Don't take this personally, I do admire your knowledge on the subject and acknowledge that there's a wide range of aspects we all take away from this pastime. However, for me if it came down to a choice between a decalling error or an incorrectly profiled #1 end - I know which one I'd prefer

Maybe, just maybe, some people that purchased them were actual modellers that rectified those major problems through the act of "Modelling?".

While the two models are sold out, I was disappointed to note that the models described as "847 and 849 as run in NSW" had the same SAR lettering as the model of 830. It is likely that these two (or three if you count the unmodelled 848) never had the SAR style lettering in that paint scheme, and definitely not while in NSW.

A feature of the "last 6" 830s built for standard gauge for the conversion of Port Pirie to Broken Hill was that AE Goodwin used their NSWGR locomotive number stencils to paint the cab side numbers on these six units. When the locomotives ran in NSW, they were all still in the original paint, with the NSW style numbers.

I point this out because I bought a Trainorama 830 quite some time ago from this group because it had the correct style of numbers. Perhap Auscision should think about their competition more carefully.

Photos on Australian Modeller web site clearly show Auscision’s 849 carrying NSW style numbers on the cabside. 847 seems to have the SA style.

And, if M636 took the time to look at prototype photos, he would discover that the correct font style has been applied to the models.  847 has the correct "square" style 8 and 849 has the correct "circular" style 8.  If M636 did a photo search of 848 he would also discover that this loco has the square style 8 numbers as well.  

Best to check photos before you start making inaccurate statements M636.......

Master modeller or otherwise, it would be a difficult (insane?) task to perform a nose job to correct the #1 end of a Traino 48 Ted

That and the fact that Ausc may have produced as low as x50 units of some varieties

Auscision QHAH/BH Aurizon 120t coal hopper samples are now on display at Australian Modeller. They were meant to debut at Caulfield last week however someone forgot to pack them and the BDX's. I'd been advised we can expect the product page & order forms very soon.

These look good...
Here's hoping the similarities to the Victorian  ELX/VOBX is some sort of impetus to do a better version ot the ones Austrains did many years ago and are now as rare as the proverbial??

Figured I'd ask.

At Caulfield I was told they were unlikely to arrive for Liverpool, which is a shame, if that happens.

Hardly modern:

There is nothing on that list post 2004.

Where are the Watco schemes?

Only the first four 22 class are covered, what about the other ten?

Maybe even a DC in orange, if yellow DCs are to modern....

The CFCLA repaint of HL203 dates from around 2010 Smile Perhaps I should have said modernised, updated, or rebuilt to differentiate the 45yr old v 15yr old prototype versions. Anyway...  The DC22 versions are all unique with various body panel changes that would require $50k tooling outlay per loco so they'd need guaranteed sales of 300+ per loco just to break even, a risky outlay in my eyes.

The FL/HL/22 project has been going for well over 10yrs now, the first 422 tooling samples that appeared in the Auscision showcase in 2009 were in fact these beasts, not the original 422 bodies. and back then only a few 22's existed, and certainly no Watco. The later are captive to WA limiting their appeal, however there would no doubt be quite a few east coast die-hards who'd snap one up if it appeared as an unannounced model. HL203 has another livery not noted on the order form, given what Auscision recently said about masses of liveries in a production run being a problem we may well have to wait for a re-run to get the full gamut of pretty colours.

Currently in development at our factory is a small re-run of HO Scale NSWGR 422 Class Locomotives for release early in 2019.
We are re-running 4 of the popular numbers and will have 20 all new numbers amongst 4 new liveries that weren't produced during our first production.
Only 50 models of each road number are being produced so to avoid disappointment we advise pre-ordering ASAP.
The 422 has been updated to include the option for factory fitted ESU DCC LokSound Select with our all new Auscision Vandersound speaker enclosure with twin speakers creating a much deeper & clearer sound. As usual our standard DC models will be available with 21-pin DCC socket on the PCB.
Take advantage of our pre-order and save discounts by placing your order directly with Auscision before the models ship from our factory. You can save $60.00 per locomotive. Pre-order price is $275.00 per loco with the after delivery price being $335.00.

The Watco scheme is pretty easy to do yourself, just spray the whole thing black and say it's weathered Laughing

Doubt it very much..
Interestingly the G class has gone quiet and it was up on their page well before the C class.

Be nice if they can update their products page to show "Sold Out" on the N and B class. Hopefully they re run the B.

Never the less, its pleasing to see their new and re releases.

The C Class is dated to arrive some time in 2019, so they have a little while to go yet.

Auscision have mentioned they have undertaken discussions to rerun the B Class, including the 2017 Streamliners Livery. They have even asked what liveries people would be after.

Maybe the G & BL classes are taking a bit more time & effort than what they thought, it would be great to see them.

Maybe they just 'announced' the G and BL classes to try and outdo SDS who already have the Austrains tooling and will re-release them in good time.
