Eureka Models - Leaders in Sound

Victorian Railways R Class 4-6-4 Steam Locomotive

Delivery Date: LATE 2013

Oil burning R 719 at the head of a short goods which includes a pair of bogie oil tank wagons

Update: 9-August, 2013
Final assembly of the R class is underway and delivery is expected within six to eight weeks. The engine numbers that will be available “ex-factory” for the standard coal burners are: R 700, R 704, R 717, R 727, R730, R 740 and R 752.

Oil burners R 719 and R 748 along with preserved locomotives R 707 and R 761 will also be available ex-factory.

WCR locomotives R 711 and R 766 will not be available with this first run as it has been decided that to do the model properly a new tender top is required and the tooling for this is underway.

When the R class arrives Eureka will contact each person with an R class on order to confirm the postal address and order details before dispatching the order. Orders not fully paid by the 30th of August will attract the post delivery price which will be $660 for the basic unit.
