Chapter 123 – 02/05/2019

Well we’re all ready for yet another Brisbane Model Train Show.
Please remember that this year it is at the Exhibition Building of the Brisbane Showgrounds o the corner of Gregory Terrace and Costin Street in Bowen Hills.

This year, we are proud to have our brand new HJS Open Wagons available for sale. In case you missed the last Adam’s Corner, these are our 10th RTR model and the first mass produced QR model EVER to be made right here in QUEENSLAND!

We were hoping to be able to release the two sets of HJS wagons in the black livery but the axles (one of the very few components not made in Australia) have not arrived in time. As such we only have a VERY limited number of these that will be available on a first come, first served basis.

In addition to this, we will have a small number of the long sold out Bicentennial 2401D models available (by small, we mean 4). These are models that had been put aside for people and never collected, then been overlooked by us. Again, these will be available on a first come, first served basis.

This year we will have a novel addition to the Wuiske Models Stand. Steve Colclough will be on hand for the entire weekend offering his DCC fitting and programing services to all. He is asking just $25.00 to fit decoders to Wuiske Models products but will also be happy to provide any onsite repairs and services as well as fitting general DC decoders to other models.

Whilst we’re talking about Steve and DCC decoders, I should point out that the Loksound V4 sound units have now been upgraded to the shiny and BRAND NEW V5 decoders. These offer far superior sound quality, clarity and functionality. As he will be programing them on site, the files available are for the 1550, 1720, 2100, 2400 and 2470 classes. That’s right, the 2100 files are here!

On a separate note, Bridget and I are very proud to advise that on Monday the 29th of April, we welcomed our latest addition to the Wuiske Clan… Michael Adam Wuiske was born at 8:15pm and both he and Bridget are doing brilliantly.

On behalf of Bridget and myself, we would like to thank you all for the well wishes and congratulatory messages, they mean a lot to us. With a shiny new Ready To Scream Model in tow, we will be enlisting the help of Hayden Lynch from Lynch Castings (and of Captain Blackout infamy) to assist us at the show.

With all of that being said, we look forward to seeing you all there and with any luck, some sleep will have been had prior to the event… As always though, we shall see how we go.
