The Unboxing of an Auscision LDP002

Recently I had the opportunity to buy my first Auscision Models locomotive, I already have two of the C44ACi’s on back order and not yet received. This model I have received in hand is the GT46C-Ace locomotive in EDI/QR National livery and numbered LDP002. This was obtained from on online vendor Ross T. I saw his ad and a couple of quick messages and the deal was done. Two days later the latest addition to my stable arrived.

TV Celebrity

We have a new TV Celebrity in the Club...

... for a few seconds anyway :-)

Channel Nine New Gold Coast broadcast a nice piece on the Gold Coast Train Show which includes a few seconds of the RMCQ N scale layout and a sound bite of PK talking about controling trains with our phones.
