GOLD COAST EXHIBITION
The Gold Coast Exhibition is on this weekend. Southern Rail will be represented by PGC Scale Models & Black Diamond Models at STAND 11. Phil Hadley & Glenn Wright will be carrying the flag along with Barry Spencer & Bob Richardson. Drop over & see the boys. Unfortunately the Rocket is a bit slow & can’t be there.
By The Way, – Phil & Glenn have organised some great specials so “bring your money with you”
XPLORERS & ENDEAVOURS
Apart from a few stragglers all the Xplorer & Endeavour models have been delivered. The models have been very well received and the team at Southern Rail would like to thank the many customers who have taken the time to compliment us on a fine model.
We are delighted to advise that the Fuel Depot is on the water and should arrive in two weeks with distribution taking place the week after.
Time to place your order now. $275.00 plus postage
Southern Rail will have a new display module on show for coming exhibitions to show just what you can do with this fabulous Track Side scene
We are also pleased to advise that the ALY main shipment will ship on the 25Th July. We apologise for the slow delivery due to the many decorations we have undertaken with this model. Like the VAK/VGK project we just don’t supply a decal sheet of numbers for the customer to fiddle with, Southern Rail goes all the way. Two versions, two gauges , 36 numbers, 12 special graphics, super detailed & lettered – all beautifully pad printed + some super-duper sheds – every layout should have a shed of 2.
Pre delivery price remains at $175.00 pack of 4 + free postage. Offer ends on 25th July
VICTORIAN/ SA RAIL TANK CARS
Now very much behind schedule due to some specific tooling requirements, these will not be on time for the Caulfield Exhibition and will now arrive probably in time for Liverpool. Bad timing we know but this unfortunately is beyond our control. We anticipate the test shots to be available for the Exhibition.

Work continues on the Vlocity sets which are also experiencing the same delays as the tank cars. With the release of the Xplorers one thing is for sure, Victorian modellers will have an absolutely superbly detailed model with some fine tuning to the operational qualities ensuring an even better model than the Xplorers. Unconfirmed delivery at this time will be early 2014
Southern Rail will be attending the following Exhibitions during August
Act – Malkara – August 3rd – 4th
NSW – Newcastle – August 17th – 18th August
VIC – Caulfield – August 24th – 25th August
Best wishes & good modelling. No doubt we will catch up with many of you over the next month
