Got an email this morning, IP and Ghan cars are coming this week. Bs are expected to leave China in 3 weeks. Excited for my B75!

According to their Facebook post overnight they expect the container with the IP cars etc to arrive "in the next week or so". So by the time they unpack them and post them off - and then considering the considerable Aust Post delays at the moment - I would not expect these to be actually delivered to customers for another 2-3 weeks at least. But its good they are at least on the way.

I hope they fixed the

  • Side grills coming off
with the B Class models

I don't know about other cities etc in Australia but here in Adelaide mail is only being delivered every second day so as has been said you might have to wait a bit longer. Posties are also being used to deliver some parcels usually the smaller stuff however larger parcels are still being delivered by the parcel side of Aust Post.  The other thing that could make it take longer is the Covid 19 restrictions what used to fly might now have to go by truck and might not go the usual way either so that also could add a lot of extra time to the delivery of something.  I have had quite a few parcels over the recent weeks that have gone past even the time put up by Post tracking as to when they will arrive, one parcel took a week longer than what the tracking actually said. It got here eventually though, you just have to expect delays though in deliveries.

AK cars for NPS-55, perhaps??  Who knows but those FAMs look amazing.

Poath is back on the ball. Well done my friend.
With Auscision I have some questions (Covid excuses aplenty I'm sure - but) the C class, and in particular the G class Shocked...... Some delays??
G class was announced ages ago, but the sounds of crickets I hear. Why?

VPS is used for the Victorian passenger rollingstock, whilst NPS is used for New Southern Welsh (?) rollingstock. So if it was for "the Melbourne crowd" it'd have to be something that either ran in both states or ended up in Vic.

Something like a Tangara lookalike that ran (occasionally) in Melbourne and was purchased by Railcorp before being stripped and scrapped perhaps?

"Unannounced HO Scale Model available tomorrow at Australian Modeller both In store & online.
2 Different liveries available in limited quantities" - via https://www.facebook.com/auscisionmodels/

Facebook page one hour ago says unannounced HO scale model available.

Here's hoping one is V/Line B76 or B80 with the number board in the guts like the VR ones, and not the diagonal ends like the V/Line ones. Only B76 and B80 in V/Line were like this.

One can hope. Take my money if you dare?"?

I'd love more Victorian grain hoppers. Hit us up with the VHHF. Then re run the other whilst you're at it. All with V/Line Grain quantities more than last time. Underestimated the demand ratio for VR vs V/Line Grain poorly with the other liveries a distant 3rd

Figured I'd demand something. Again, take my money if you dare.

Auscision tell me, in their email at 5.30 this morning, that the early-bird prices for the Tangaras and the NR locos ends at midnight on the 31st October.  Also, there will also be an unannounced model, short production run, available at Australian Modeller on the 1st of November.  This may fill in the vacant NPS-13 slot?  My guess is maybe the long ago promised PHS Powervan.  Or, . . . .

Or could it be a set of the AK cars from the FAM cars they did as the unannounced model would be great if it was true and give you something to run behind quite a lot of Australian locomotives. A complete train in one box less locomotive of course.

On further thought, David, I agree with you, it'll probably be the AK Cars - all three cars in the one set, only one number required.  If it was to be the PHS, more than one number would be required - from memory, I think that there were six PHS vans and they ran in four liveries that I know of, so if they were to do all six of them in all four liveries, twenty-four numbers would be required and I cannot see that happening as Auscision say that it will be a small production run.  So, logic tells me that it may well be the AK Cars this time.

They've never said they'd release a PHS (that's part of the RUB cars project) it's the PHA you're thinking of.

Also it's not NPS-13, so it doesn't have to be one item.

Not really. As you say "yet". I would think its almost certain they will release them as "unannounced" versions when the NRs arrive. Especially given that SDS have already indicated they will be doing the two Great Southern NRs.

45 Great Southern sets were made available to purchase at midnight, only 13 now left (6 sold in the last hour). They'll all be gone before the day is over.

Set APS2567 is actually set APS25 (10 cars), APS26 (3 cars) & APS 27 (1 car). That means sets APS23 & APS24 are still unknowns.
(edit: fixed set numbers)
