EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
We are considering producing a NSW Coal Loader and would like to know whether or not this is something you would be interested in purchasing from us.
It would be sold for around $310 – $350 with an optional conveyor costing an extra $89. We’re going to need a minimum of 100 orders to go ahead with the tooling so please take the time to fill in this form expressing your level of interest in this model and either email or post it to us.
Return your form to:
Address: PO BOX 427, SALAMANDER BAY, NSW 2317
We would like to officially announce you can now choose from an extra 16 Australian domestic containers.
These models cost just $38.75 per 2 pack
Available mid-January 2018.
‘LL’ COAL HOPPERS
We are delighted to announce that we are ready to go to tooling on some ‘LL’ Coal Hopper, to match our incredible 10 class locomotive!
A rake for a single 10 class is 32 hoppers. Accordingly, we are packing the models in boxes of 10 (with weight & removable coal load – each model fitted with 158 Kadee couplers) and in boxes of 2, which will only be available when ordering a 10 car box.
We have tried to provide the most comprehensive selection to cover most situations and, of course, accuracy of Branding as many of the known collieries did not have the ‘LL’ wagons in their fleet. It has also been thoroughly researched with the help of several well – known authors and historians. Our selection includes wagons from BHP, including John Darling & Golins, both of which were seen at Hexam yards regularly.
There will be no pre-delivery price for this model.

WOULD YOU LIKE A GUARDS VAN?
Although this model is essentially the same design as the NSW Government railway’s CHG brake van, there are noteable differences in the panel work of the 9 Richmondvale vans constructed & multiple numbers.
We’re looking at a small run of about 500 units. The alternative is a resin model which we are also currently exploring, however we have no estimated cost at this stage.
10 CLASS REVIEW
We have been absolutely over-run with positive comments and feedback for our South Maitland Railway’s 10 Class. Thank you to everyone who took the time to tell us what they think – it’s much appreciate.
Have a read of our latest review:
“After displaying our 10 class at the Epping MRC’s Exhibition in June, I bumped into Gerry Hopkins and had a discussion about the 10 class. Although I am well acquainted with Gerry and his standing in the modelling community, both as an outstanding modeller and sound guru, we are just acquaintances. It was for both these reasons that I asked Gerry if he would consider making an independent review of the model when an production sound model was available if I loaned him one. Gerry willing accepted the offer and here is his review’.

2300 CLASS LOCOMOTIVES
The tooling is proceeding nicely – expect some tooling shots in the new year.
There are some tooling adjustments to be made before we go to production, after the 48′ Australian Domestic Containers’ arrive early in the new year.
All our XGAY orders have been dispatched and they look just sensational!
