Has PSM really made a D3 or is it an A2 with D3 plates on?
Whatever scale that is, I am going to start modelling it

G'day cjgeddes & b 82,

Gentlemen, that IS a genuine D3 (note the 'offset' rear Driving wheel, a UNIQUE feature of the D3 locomotives). Jamie can confirm (or deny) this but I believe these locomotives are now 'museum pieces', as they were released (in HO scale) many years ago and are now 'out of stock'...

...oddly enough, I was 'watching' Jamie move that locomotive around the display layout all weekend (off and on) and NEVER actually realised it was a D3, I just assumed it was one of the variations of the newly released A2s in Canadian Red (one of which I purchased for myself whilst I was there) ...

Jerker {:)}

Hope they have not turned to "museum pieces"

Quick history lesson on the D3 model:

BGM originally had these model produced by Samhongsa back in 1982/83. There was a total run of some 200 units in either plain brass or 'painted' (IIRC it was a chemical blackning like Alco Models did).

Most, if not all, the Korean brass BGM items were transfered to PSM in 1990/1991. It was decided that a re-run of the model should be done, taking advantage of new procedures to do some minor tweaks to the model. The centrepiece of the re-run was the first ever RTR model of a VR preserved locomotive, D3 639 as it was running in the Canadian Red livery with 'Spirit Of Ballarat' nameplates and Steamrail headboards (which was an optional fitting included in the spare parts bag). I have no idea if any other versions were produced by an advert indicated at least 3 other numbers in plain black were to be done. The DDE/D4 project was also part of this and thankfully it did go ahead. 8-)

Matt's correct, PSM used Samhongsa to build the D Set, D3, D4 and DDE, after BGM did them, and they have been sold out for ages, 15 years or so,
They're extremely hard to come by, and as Garry said, they are similar to A2's, and maybe someone might make they're own numbers and stick them onto a Red A2 and drive it around, pretending it's Spirit of Ballarat. :roll:

B 82, those B's were returned models or had some small errors, such as grills popping out etc.
I should know, I personally sold 6 of them :lol:

My dad got two B class brand new and the grills were both popping out!

i think people who got a B/A class all had that problem!
because i have friends who have that problem as well. :|
