Auscision 2017 Product Update
We have just arrived back after visiting our offices in Hong Kong where we discussed both outstanding and new projects for 2017/2018 with our factory. After travelling to China to check on the factory and see our products in action on the production line it was noted that Chinese factories are still having trouble obtaining workers. It is normally slow at this time of the year as most people take additional time to come back to work after Chinese New Year holidays, but during 2016 we had less workers at the factory at the end of these holidays and we expect less again in 2017. Unfortunately, this is across most of China and all of the factories have the same issue. This will regrettably slow up production of our more complex projects like the 48/830 Class, 442 Class & RUB Passenger Cars. These are all big projects that take nearly 6 months to run through the production line due to the complexity of each model - ie. lots of different liveries, road numbers & body versions. We are trying our best to get each project here as soon as we possibly can and appreciate everyone’s patience. 

Other than that most things are running on schedule and our tooling department is quite busy working on 7 new locomotives, 5 new freight wagons, 3 new containers & some passenger cars all to be announced in 2017. It looks like 2017/2018 is going to be a big 2 years with new products from Auscision.

Below is an outline on each project and current delivery date.

Current Projects

48/830 Class
As mentioned above we have been having a little trouble obtaining workers for the production line - this project is currently our biggest project ever! We need as much production capability as possible to finish the many different versions, liveries, and road numbers for each model. Our factory advises 3rd Quarter 2017 for delivery and are trying their best to pull this in. Because we now have a little bit of extra time up our sleeves Auscision is going to offer everyone that has pre-ordered 48/830 Class models the opportunity to add factory fitted DC/DCC ESU Sound to their models for an additional $100.00. We will be sending out letters to everyone that has 48/830 Class models on order and offering this as a once only chance to add it to your model. It will be important that you read the conditions outlined in the letter as you will only have one chance at adding sound to your order, and once the cut-off date has passed you will no longer be able to add sound to models on your order. Letters will go out in April - please wait until you receive this letter before requesting the sound option.

442 Class
The 442 Class is now expected 3rd Quarter 2017. This has unfortunately been pushed back a little as outlined above.

V Set
While we were at the factory we viewed the V Set on the production line. These are coming along nicely and are expected to leave China late March with delivery in April 2017.

CP Van
Painted samples for the CP Van should be expected soon with delivery set for August 2017.

RUB Cars
RUB Car painted samples are also expected soon with production now expected around 3rd Quarter 2017.

Car Carrier – Balance of Shipment
The balance of the shipment of Car Carriers is expected to arrive in May 2017. As soon as these arrive we will get the balance of pre-orders out to those that are yet to receive them.

Fishbelly Underframe Wagons
The factory is currently working on painted samples which we should receive soon. Production is expected late in 2017.

XGAY Hopper
We are still waiting on tooling samples for the XGAY hopper. A few modifications had to be made so it has pushed it back a little. Delivery now expected 3rd Quarter 2017.

Due to the above complex projects 48/830 & 442 Classes the Tangara has been pushed back until late 2017. Once again we appreciate everyone’s patience with this project. It is definitely still coming and will be a great model when it arrives.

NR Class Locomotive
Just announced is our NR Class locomotive. We have been working on this model behind the scenes for a number of years now so that we can bring to the market the most accurate & highly detailed NR ever! No more running your 20 year old NR, it’s time to upgrade to a 2017 model quality NR. 15 different liveries available including all of the latest Great Southern Rail liveries, Indian Pacific®, The Ghan® & Southern Spirit®.  Available early 2018 with the option of DC/DCC ESU Sound.
