PROJECT UPDATES

V/LOCITY

After a long wait, yippy yi yo, the V/LOCITY is currently in tooling. We are working with our factory to try and have test shots available at the Hobson’s Bay Exhibition over Easter. That’s the plan but you know Murphy’s Law.

Here are a few drawing snapshots

    

You can see many more on our V/locity Products Page.

By the way, if you would like one of these Limited Edition sets you need to jump in pretty soon.

The production run is limited to 50 of each

 

PRODUCT CODE VLO11 – SET No: VL21 – CARS 1121 / 1321 / 1221

VICTORIAN & SA RAIL TANK CARS

We can report that the models are currently in production and we have an agreed air shipping date of the 3rd April. Keep your fingers crossed

FROM 3 CAR PACK VSA 12 –  1 DOME ROUND – 410 OIL TANK

 

AMPOL / FREIGHT AUSTRALIA / ATLANTIC RAIL TANK CARS

.As previously advised this round of Rail Tank Cars will follow hard on the heels of the VIC/SA RTC’s and we have an agreed ship date of 5th May. Again Murphy’s Law may apply

PRX/NPRY CEMENT HOPPERS

The drawing work continues but we are relatively pleased with the progress. These should be completed in the next week or so & then we will see how it fits with the rest of the schedule. These few drawings indicate the work & detail going into the project to get it right. The underbody looks pretty impressive but there are corrections to be made.

 

2300/DFZ CLASS LOCO

There is no update available on this loco at the moment but we will make a blog posting at the earliest possible time.

The 2300 class Product Page was updated recently

Do not expect a courteous response outside of these hours.

Fax & e-mail facilities are available.

WEB SITE

. The site is continually being updated at the moment, particularly our product pages.

Recent page updates include the Vlocity, VIC/SA Rail Tank Cars, Stanchions/Fuel Depot, VAK/VGK Qld Coal & Wheat Hoppers & the NDHF Concrete Sleeper Wagons

STOCK POSITION

The single cars have sold out in the Xplorers whilst many of the Qld VGK wheat hoppers and some of the NDHF concrete sleeper wagons have also sold out. If you don’t want to miss out, now is the time to do something about it as there are quite a few models with a “Limited Stockposting next to them. This generally means there are around 10 left. If it has “Limited Stock – Less than 5” that’s the truth of the matter & you really do need to be quick because we just don’t have time to update these pages each week

Helping to keep your dream alive
