This is wheely good news

New brass bogies.
Over the last 3 months "Trainbuilder" and "Blue and Gold Models" have been working on a reliable supply of bogies for a number of my kits, namely the PL Cars and the V Cars.
The pilot model arrived in Melbourne last week and I'm happy to say that they are beautiful and run smoothly.
Complete with brake rigging, 8 brake shoes, RP88 wheels and "VR" embossed on all axlebox cheek plates.
Each wheel is indivually sprung as per "Trainbuilder" standards.
Compare the new bogie on the left with the BGM one on the right.

CW back on track

The roof has been repaired/remade and the first samples poured. When I'm happy with the results and get a chance to do a run of models the first ones will be for those who have pre odered these models. After that they will be appearing at exhibitions later this year, barring any further mishaps like last time.

Life after Hobson's Bay

I now have the brass queen posts for the CW Vans and will start filling all the back orders I have ASAP, I also have bogies for the PL Cars which I will be releasing at Waverley's exhibition over the Queens Birthday week end.
I have also organized to get the S car bogies from Powerline which means I can release the CS Vans around the end of April.
