VR Bogie Wagons arrive:

The first shipment of the VR bogie S flat wagons, the E bogie open wagons and the SAR O bogie open wagons has arrived and is in the process of being distributed.
About one third of orders have been filled to date and all outstanding orders are being confirmed by phone before being filled. Anyone who has not received their order can speed up the process by contacting the Eureka offices.  
All orders should be filled by the 15th of September.


38 Class Update:

On a recent visit to the factory in China, Eureka staff took the opportunity to put the latest 38 class engineering sample through its paces.
With the engineering sample nearing completion attention has now turned to decoration and final assembly.
Delivery is now likely to be at the end of 2019.

Whilst at the factory, Eureka staff were also able to observe the assembly of the TAM and MCS carriages. A sample of each livery was obtained and returned to Australia. Photos are available elsewhere on the Eureka blog and delivery is expected in late September. 
TAM/MCS on their way.

The production run of Eureka Model's latest offering in its twelve wheeler series, the TAM sleeping cars and MCS sitting cars left the factory on the 29th of August and was conveyed to our freight forwarders in Shanghai. They have advised that the cargo will leave Shanghai on the 6th of September bound for Port Botany with an ETA of 19th of September.
This will give our freight people plenty of time to clear the cargo in time for the Homebush exhibition.


Two pallets of TAM/MCS ready to leave the factory.
Better find some space to put them!
