4th February – What Else Is New

4TH FEBRUARY – WHAT ELSE IS NEW

PRICING

Some of our magazine advertising has to be created some time in advance of publication & others are done “just in time”. This has led to some confusion as to new pricing & the pricing of existing orders where a price change is notified. To make it abundantly clear please note the following

1)    All orders whether full paid or not, currently on our books FOR ANY PROJECT will be supplied at the old price and there is no need to pay in full at this time if a deposit only has been paid

2)    Any new orders for Xplorer/Endeavours placed before 28th February will be at the old price but must be fully paid with order

 3)    The new prices for the Vlocity sets are effective NOW (from1st February.) Any new orders placed after that date may be secured with a deposit of $100.00 per 2 car set & $150.00 per 3 car set

 4)    The new price on the VICTORIAN/SA RAIL TANK CARS & other not yet released rail tank cars is effective from 1st March. All orders received prior to that date at the old pricing MUSTB BE PAID IN FULL with order.

 5)    A deposit only is required on any new order at the new prices

 

WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

Due for release in April is a series of Overhead Wire Stanchions.

There are a myriad of stanchions used on the NSW railways & it would be impossible to satisfy everyone or reproduce every design. Utilizing the experience of Epping Model Railway Club’s Geoff Small of ‘Mullet Creek’ layout fame, Southern Rail have reproduced three common versions which should inspire all “Under The Wires” modellers to give it a go in making their layouts just a little more like the prototype.

These stanchions are not powered due to the advent of DCC not making it a necessity to control a train through the overhead wires. The stanchions have been designed to accept any proprietary brand catenary that can be soldered such as from Marklin, Sommerfeldt or Fleishmann.

FUEL DEPOT

With the arrival of our first run of Tulloch Rail Tank Cars, Southern Rail is also delighted to announce our first resin TRACKSIDE structure, a very small production run of an HO scale  GENERIC FUEL DEPOT due for delivery in April.

Based on Caltex & BP depots at Bathurst & dioramas by Peter Street & David Low the model comes painted & includes a decal sheet for BP, Caltex, Esso, Shell, Ampol & Golden Fleece to enable clients to customize the structure to their own liking. The model comes as one piece but is easily divided into 4 to customise to your available area. Clients will then be able to super detail at their discretion.

An unpainted pre production version is pictured below. Modifications have been made to the railing on the vertical tanks & to the stumps on the shed

Diorama size is 450 x 200mm and is priced at $275.00. Free postage on any fully paid order placed directly with Southern Rail during February & March.
