We are also delighted to advise that production of these tank wagons is also imminent. Whilst there are no new surprises (except 1) in this group of wagon,s the pr- delivery price is still available. Order forms are currently available  for both groups.

INTERAIL & QR NATIONAL QHAF & QHBF COAL HOPPERS

In conjunction with the VAK production run, there will be a special run of these converted to standard gauge VAK coal hoppers in HO scale 16.5mm gauge. This order form will also be available in Brisbane with a pre-delivery price which will be available to all our customers and will also be posted to our web site next week.

And just as a reminder, we do have some rather nice Interail locos to work with these Interail wagons.  Go to https://www.southernrailmodels.com.au/l-class.html

 V/LOCITY UPDATE

In breaking news, we are delighted to advise that our V/locities are on their way to the wharfs in Hong Kong.Their arrival date into Australia will be around the 18th May, to us sometime after that and in your hot hands and in store by the end of May.

The pre delivery price is no longer available from Southern Rail but is available from a number of participating retailers for a short time only. They might even have some of our sold out models still available. See our blog  https://www.southernrailmodels.com.au/article/retailer-pre-delivery-price

During next week we will be finalising any outstanding monies on customer’s orders.

WHAT’S AHEAD

With the Budget now over, we are hopeful of having all of our outstanding projects completed by years end. We are certainly working with great energy to achieve this goal. With many new unannounced projects in the pipeline, including our next locomotive project, the remainder of 2016 & 2017 look very bright for our valued customers and particularly for members of the Southern Spirit Club Car.
