Has anyone else wondered what might be in the crates in front of big Pete?
To me it looks like red and blue new product both with a clerestery type roof.

Taits and parcel van's perhaps???? Don't recall hearing a rerun of E cars.

Thoughts?

Regards

Rod,

You would know better than I do.  Are there any hills between Melbourne and Albury?  They could say they are following prototypical operation and it is intended for flat country. Laughing

I was extremely disappointed as a kid in 1954 when we moved to near Albury and I found the S class had been replaced by a bloody diesel!  Point is how many 30s and 40s modellers are there?  One thing for sure they shouldn't run a streamlined S on a tourist train, but then we can dream can't we?

Best regards,
John

I saw Poath's response and was hoping for a special AUS Day announcement. Oh well

You mean something like "Wohoo, Silverton container wagons!!! Alright!!!!". One can live in hope.... The RMX and JLX projects could both deliver such wagons.

It's been available from their web site for many weeks now but what I would like to see is the 48 Class shown on their 'Products' page like all their other undelivered products so I can see which of the Candy units come with buffer plates before I place my order.

Your wish came true! "Auscision are currently developing a new HO Scale locomotive that will be available with sound and will work on both DC & DCC. The sound has been recorded from the actual locomotive here in Australia." - via  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Auscision-Models/136260326407914

I like the reference to LNER 4472 "Flying Scotsman"...its a long shot but geez that would be a cracker of a release if it was true...always wanted the PSM version but it was just beyond any reasonable budget.

Even assuming they do an A3, why would it sell well abroad?

The only real market for it would be in the UK and they already have the very nice Hornby model which is to the 4mm scale that the UK use. Cant see much of a market there I am afraid.

In Australia it covered most states....
Its been to the USA.....and in the UK there would be quite a few who would get it ( i am assuming of course ) as the level of detail and its identity would be enough......talk about global appeal.

If it would be anything like the brass PSM version it would be a home run......

It did operate in the US and Canada for about four year after undergoing some modifications so there might possibly be a market there.

You may recall how popular Hornby's 20th Anniversary Bicentennial was a few years back albeit in UK's 'native' OO scale...

................ and where does it say this is a steam engine???

Happy daydreaming,

John
  kingfisher Chief Train Controller

I appreciate that getting a HO model is difficult. All I am saying is that any idea of a HO model having lots of appeal is probably vastly overstated. There are already very good 4mm scale models of the A3 available and you can count the number of 3.5mm scale UK modellers modelling UK railways on a few hands. It may have some appeal in the USA, but the main market will have to be Australia.

There wouldn't need to be much of a market in the US for a Scottie in HO to dwarf the Australian market for the model.

Exactly.

If it was recorded here in Australia, then it could be any type of locomotive that has run in this country for XX years, also the method of recording would need to be up to the standards required of today's decoders.  Perhaps the best option is to look at the fleet of SSR locomotives not yet done, or ones owned by others that SSR have or are using now, or recently.

I doubt very much that the scotsman would have much of a market in the U.S, OO mayb make the model look better beside the U.S types after all it looked smaller than 3801 when they ran together. Also Americans rarelly model other than their own, as there is nowhere in the world outside the West & East Coast of the U.S.

G'Day John,
The track climbs all the way to Seymour (SOP behind an S in my day spent more time under 40KPH than 115KPH (almost Smile Most of the way till Tallarook, then a long easy climb to Mangalore before reaching the flatland's. Coming out of Melbourne with speed restrictions and a steady climb the old Diesel S and X Class never got much of a run, and tended to slog. I have had to hand sand  a GM  over Jacana!! (although an exceptional thing to do) The run out of Benalla gave a chance to gather up speed before the short climb over Glenrowan.
My old mates who did operate the S Class Steamer told me they ran much faster than the Diesels up the grades and in fact the Diesels struggled with the steam timetables even though many stops were abandoned by the 70's. I liked to believe that too Very Happy
Particularly as a C Class restricted to 80KPH would make so much time on the hills, and accelerating, that the arrival into Albury, could be on time if everything (including new wheels) went right Smile
Cheers

I was going to say just the Great Dividing Range, nothing too major in the way for the S Class steamers haha

Also, any updates on the V/Line P Class?
