Glad you guys enjoyed the NZ version of slow TV

For starters the Adelaide Station is broad Guage.

Secondly there is only one return service to Broken Hill per week.

Also the XPTs are standard Guage.


It must be going ahead, there are details on it on the GSR website.


From what I have read, yes there will be a sound equipped version available, they are just waiting for a price from ESU. They will come equipped with a factory installed speaker.

They look a ...

I'm heading up to Newcastle for a few days and would like to capture a few trains.

Having looked at the timetables it looks like Sandgate is a good location, does it get both Carrington & Koo ...

I'm heading down to Wollongong for a few days & wanting to catch a few freighters/coal trains while I'm down there. I've had a look at the lineside locations, and I'm guessing that Coniston, Cri ...


If it is true then I feel sorry for OTM, from what I have seen they had been in discussions with their manufacturer a few months ago with a order form due to be released this weekend. Maybe a c ...


It all depends on what damaged has been caused due to the hole in the turbo inlet. Unfiltered air entering the combustion chamber is never good, especially when dust is sucked in, as it goes lik ...


Only a small run of curtain siders, and they think most will sell out before the end of the exhibition. For those who cannot attend you can order direct from OTM, for $35 those that are still av ...

I have been on The Overland three times and I have enjoyed every trip, even though the last trip was delayed by a few hours due to a failed 5PM9 crossing the Adelaide Hills. The journey is a ver ...


And also the two other 40 footers released last week.

It is unfortunate if you missed out but you had plenty of time to get your orders in. The release had been delayed many times over the years, hence giving people a longer opportunity to order. I wonde ...


If anyone is holding out till the last minute to order their 46ft 6 inch reefer containers you have till midnight to get your order in before they go up to $39.95.

Aren't the XR/VL/BRM based on a similar under carriage?


Looks like they are still available from Australian Modeller though.
