22ND DECEMBER 2018 – CHRISTMAS UPDATE

2170 CLASS | 2300 CLASS | SA LOCOS

All of us at Southern Rail are tickled pink with our 2300 Class / 2170 class and South African Locos. More than that, we want to acknowledge not only your support for Southern Rail over the past 6 years – hanging in there with us as we moved from one factory to another – but to also acknowledging your complementary comments made directly to us, and elsewhere, about the locos being the finest quality & most accurate models ever produced for the Queensland market.

It has been overwhelming and truly appreciated.

Thanks to all our customers, private & retail. We will continue to lift the bar.

There are however one or two hiccups, but we expect a few when one has such a large post out taking longer to dispatch then any other project we have made. On top of the ‘LL’ wagon post out, it has been a busy two months and we are looking forward to our Christmas break.

CONVERSION KITS: As many of you are aware we were very much sold out of 12mm gauge and we accepted some orders for 12mm on the proviso that we would supply 12mm conversion kits from the factory, hopefully before the 1550/2400 production. Quite a few orders were accepted on this understanding, but for a few other customers we had to make a spot decision to lesson the disappointment of not getting a model at all.

We are waiting on advice from the factory as to when we will have the kits.

DECODERS: Some orders were also accepted on the understanding that we would provide a decoder for self installation on models that we knew we had already sold out of. It is possible that a couple of other customers orders were sent this way.

We apologise for this, but again it was to avoid disappointment.

IMPORTANTLY – SOME LOOSE DECODERS WERE SENT FROM THE WRONG STOCK PILE AND HAVE NO SOUND ON THEM AT
ALL 😊 IF YOU RECEIVED AN UNFITTED DECODER/S PLEASE FIT AND CHECK AND ADVISE IF YOU NEED A SOUND REPLACEMENT.

AVAILABLE STOCK AS OF 21.12.18

THESE MODELS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THESE RETAILERS

IN QUEENSLAND

IN NSW

IN VICTORIA

IN WA

1550 CLASS

As you can see from the stock list above, you need to be quick to secure the model of your choice. Especially our 12mm customers. Don’t leave it to the last minute.

As we will soon be going into production of the 1550 & 2400 class models, the special pre-delivery discount of 10% that is on offer for the 1500 class locos will cease from midnight on December 31st 2018.

The Southern Spirit Club Car discounts of 5% for BRONZE & 10% for GOLD & PLATINUM members continues for both the 1550 & 2400 class.

“SIMPLY THE BEST”

 

OTHER PROJECT UPDATES

OLO/OVO – AMPOL BFT & RTC PROJECT

This project is still unresolved due to the complexity of of variations. It will be resolved before Christmas but we will not proceed to production until we review new tooling samples.

2nd RUN ‘LL’ WAGONS

Production is complete for the second run of “LL” and shipping is only held up by Kadee stuffing up the delivery of the couplers twice. Nobody currently knows where they are so we have asked for replacements to be sent urgently but we have had to pay for the additional couplers, even though it was/is their stuff up!!!!!

Again, don’t be late in ordering your models. Sales are already brisk and the special discount for existing customers will end at midnight on 31st December, 2018
