Not really rollingstock, but i've been installing the purchases i made at Caulfield exhibition from Southern Rail.
Putting up the poles is strangely addictive, still to add the wires though.

Funniest part is i still don't have any electric locomotives. Doesn't hurt to be prepared though!

Love those stanchions for the overhead wires....looks very local!!!!!!!

Picked up these two on the weekend, Auscision A78 in the Vline Freight livery which i've been really keen on for quite some time.

Also picked up one more Powerline VHGY hopper to add with my others Smile

Hi all,

Just updated the blog (it's been a while) with my more recent purchases.

The mighty 521 lives.
seen here at the Kaleen Model Railway Expo held on the weekend here in Canberra.
The layout is from my club (ACTMRS) is called Yendys and is based loosely on outer Sydney suburban.
The loco is a Model Design Studio (rock river casting) resin body kit with a very heavily modified and partially scratch built mech.
The tender is scratch built from styrene (the second one I have made) and the loco is fitted with a TCS WOW sound decoder along with a high bass speaker in the tender and a small PMD speaker in the loco body just behind the funnel. It also has working headlight front and rear, marker lights front and rear and a cab light along with a chuff sync cam for spot on chuff sounds.


Here are 2 more clips of the NSWGR C32 class kit I built for the club. This loco is also running a TCS WOW Decoder again being fitted with headlight, marker lights front and rear and a cab light, chuff sync cam and also a firebox flicker light.

Got a tax return present in the mail, and I'm most impressed. Compared them with the OER M vans and noticed they were a darker shade of grey, which I think actually looks more realistic, but the bogies aren't as good as the OER offerings. Than I came to realise, this is how NSW and Vic modelers must feel- to be able to nitpick and comare RTR models- It's finally happened to us SAR enthusiasts! Before we know it we'll be criticising 600B steamers in RTR.....

Also something else thats not often seen is the much elusive 85 class electric.
This model is an IDR release and is a one piece body with Austrains bogies and mech. Instructions are on dvd and are probably some of the best instructions I've come across.

Awesome locomotive.....
