VAK/VGK PRODUCTION UPDATE
The last two production samples of the VAK’s arrived last week and we can only say that these models with reflective paint as per the prototype are nothing short of mind blowing, simply fantastic. We have sent them to our photographer for photographing.
These last two have held up the shipment by a week or so waiting for us to give our approval. The factory has confirmed today that production will be complete today & ready for shipping on Friday.
At this time, the first available ship indicates an arrival into Port of Sydney around the 17th December so it will be a big rush to get these out to every one for Christmas. We will do our very best to achieve this but it will be very tight.
CEMENT WORKS & DIESEL REFUELLING DEPOT
We are also delighted to advise that the Cement works production is going well and we are just in the process of preparing the packaging for decoration and testing. This will be checked by sending a production model via DHL to see how it stands up to travel. So it is fair to say that it does not appear that we will have the model for Christmas but in the early New Year.
At the same time we were surprised & delighted to see photos of the masters of our Diesel Loco refuelling station. The Masters were not expected until the New Year. It has a little more detail to be added + a few corrections but it is very good.
“L” CLASS WITH SOUND
Due to high demand for sound units we have converted a number of non-sound units with spare decoders that we had in stock.
Go to: https://www.southernrailmodels.com.au/current-promotions.htmlThis means that some previously non available locos are now back in stock but are still in short supply with less than 5 available for most models. Need to be quick to get these bearing in mind that we launched a promotion on L class locos yesterday.
We have a very limited quantity of undecorated non-sound ‘L’ class locos which are also available at the promotional price. The ARG models L9, L10 & L11 along with L268 are completely sold out. As are Non-Sound unit L17 (Westrail L269 orange/ Blue Band + pin stripe)
OUR OFFICE HOURS ARE 9AM TO 5 PM MONDAY TO FRIDAY
