NEW HD 150 to 218 to be release this weekend!

 As we all know the HD class was one of the biggest and fascinating group of vechicles on the Victorian Railways. For this reason we have decided to do another HD type. This type has close to 70 wagons built to it from hand-me-down I/IA wagons during the late 50's to early 60's. They covered the surplus stock with raised metal side and a roof and two full height doors each side. A large number of these were used specifically used for construction and were stenciled 'NES' (North East Standardisation). This new item will be a three part Kit. Main body and roof as one peice and the doors for the sides make up the other two peices with a cost of $20 each. Limited numbers will be available of the weekend but will be happy to orders and post them out or you can purchase them from our online store. No decals will be supplied with this wagon but if you contact Bill's Billboards who specialise in custom decals, I'm sure Sean and Bill will be able to help you out .

We're back and accepting orders

Our first appearence in the new year will be at the Warrnambool Model Railway Exhibition on the 14 and 15 of January 2012 (This weekend) we're we will be releasing a new Departmental Van. This Van is HD 150 to 218 There will be limited stock at the expo so first in first served but we will cast more up saturday night for those coming on Sunday.
