Wuiske Models OLO Tankers Supplies are low!

We received news from our friends at ‘Wuiske Models’ that their Queensland Rail OLO Tanker Wagons are getting low in stock now. They are unlikely to get a re-run, so they will be hard to find for the for-seeable future. This included both the 12mm HOn3.5 narrow gauge and the 16.5mm standard Ho scale track gauge.

We have available 12mm varieties but they can be changed to 16.5mm bogies very easily with a pack of Wuiske Bogies.
It’s great to see that Queensland Rail modellers are finally getting a range of Ready to Run models in such a variety, when barely 2 or 3 years ago, it was not possible.
Check out the ‘Wuiske Models’ range at http://www.wuiskepromotions.com.au/

Also, we stock a variety of Wuiske Models products in store, but we can order anything he has in stock and have it in store as required.

For more information, check out Z21 at http://www.z21.eu/en
Operate with driver’s cabs: At the tablet PC you can operate your locomotives with photorealistic driver’s cabs and execute the manual operations like a real locomotive driver. 

Unique driving experience with built-in cameras in the locomotive: For the first time presented at the toy fair in Nuremberg in 2013! Invisible locomotive cameras that have been integrated into the models will transmit the journey through your model railway layout live to your tablet PC driver’s cab. The driving experience from the perspective of the locomotive driver becomes a reality for the first time. 

Simple management and operation: You can manage and operate all of the locomotives, switch tracks and digital functions with self explanatory function symbols. Complicated command button combinations are a thing of the past.

Create a register of all of your locomotives, wagons and trains – with a photo of your models and a lot of space for information to the original locomotives and your models (when purchased, maintained, etc.).
