Nice catch Pete. Thanks for pointing it out. I continue to struggle to find North American sources for their products. Have you had any luck finding the stuff?

Those toilets seem to be tastefully decorated. Would be a pity to get rid of them.

And just because they left the door open to take pictures of the details doesn't mean you have to leave it open.

they left the door open


What door? The only door I see is the coach door to the interior.

Sliding door, look closer, there are two doors in those shots, one for the interior and one for the toilet, one is 'normal' the other slides in the wall, and both are open ;)

I can't believe the trains ever ran like that--I'm thinking they left the back wall of the coach off to show the detail?

No luck yet finding a dealer online

Both will carry the BR18 kit, but like the BR18 kit I suspect the coaches won't be available until October/November, You can contact any stockist of the Occre trams and inquire if they will get the coach

Sorry it's not a sliding door, but there are two doors that both open inwards, you can barely see the other door in photo 3/6

I started digging, and also emailed OcCre [Duh!] They are in the 'Accucraft' school of marketing:

> Can you tell me where I can buy your BR-18 locomotive and Coastal Coach kits inthe USA?

Dear Mr. we are thankful for the interest to him by our new models. We have incorporated to the Web the new models to remove on sale during this year. At the moment it is not in the market the models BR-18 and the car Cost. To him we will maintain informed at the moment at which these kits leave to the market. Thanks and receive a warm greeting, Attention to the Client OcCre

And Ray Miller at Historicships.com in Florida sent me this link:

I guess he'll stock them when if they ever get produced.

Not sure how this is "Accucraft" marketing, the European makers will release info years before the model comes. Case in point the Bachmann/Liliput Uh class. They are telling you that the pricing will come with production in this e-mail, another common approach.

Kind of nice, unlike the Americans where you have to order within a week of the notification or the models are sold out /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/sad.gif

Mr David Bunn -

How can I get in contact with Glendale Junction to get information on their versions of the motorizing kits?

I stand to be corrected but I thought previously someone had posted a brief comment indicating that the OcCre motors are not very robust and a retrofit using a more traditional choice would be better. If I am mistaken I apologize.
