New South Wales 48 Class
« on: July 28, 2011, 09:07:52 AM »
Not sure if this is the right spot but in the absence of anywhere else to put it...

I got this last month.  Lovely model and a "must have" for N Gauge modellers Down Under.  I wrote a review for it for the NGS Journal which will be appearing in the next issue (4/11).  Hopefully it does well as the next promised is a 44 Class - 100 of the 44s were built and used from Brisbane to Melbourne and west on the Indian Pacific (although I don't think they made it beyond Broken Hill).

Great looking loco but what is that sticking out of the roof - it looks like something off the current crop of BMW cars?

A nice model indeed, I had several 48s but in HO Gauge a few years ago, no doubt about it the Oz N gauge if starting to catch on now, I have a mate that has built a model of Central Stn in Sydney he has various NSWGR steam locos that he had specially made for him plus a few NR Class diesels that he fits the body shells over SD9 American models.

Sadly our local N Gauge is oh soooo expensive so I never got involved with it and decided to go with British which is what I grew up with until 1957.

Good luck with the Oz N gauge and hope to see more of your locos in the future.

I grew up watching these diesels haul coal and other goods.

My LHS, Barnes Hobbies, had a pre-production candy liveried 48.



Just beautiful.

At $250 its not unreasonable either

Looks like a GM/Brush hybrid!
Nice colour scheme though.
Personal motto: You don't have to be mad to be a modeller, but I find it helps!
