Welcome to the BadgerBits website: Australian-outline N Scale and Freelance On30 Model Railways
Watch a pre-production NSWR 44 class classic locomotive pulling a rake of old Rivarossi carriages dressed up as Ghan carriages at https://youtu.be/njtX3wo6jgg and https://youtu.be/SlahaJiwb7A This locomotive was DCC and all production locomotives will be shipped as DC but a TCS Z2 (or similar) can be fitted.
Fantastic pulling power - tested with 23 FOs behind it. Available for order late April 2017 with an expected price of $240 plus shipping.
But wait - there's more!!
One 44 class body is being modified to be a single-ended 930 class. The other two 930 class bodies will be modelled before the 44 class arrives and cast in urethane. This will allow cross-border modellers of 930 class to have all three types available. Decals for AN and SAR will be available as will be an overlay to represent the polished stainless steel sides on some 930 class locomotives.
But wait - again - there's even more!!!
With the delivery of the 44 class will come an additional 200 chassis - these will be mated to a custom-built 43 class body and side-frames which will be sold as a kit. This should be available at the same time as the 44 class but is strictly limited to the 200 chassis - so get your orders in quickly. Available for order late April 2017 with an expected price of $220 plus shipping.
