HO Scale J Class Delivery Update

Ixion’s freight agent has confirmed that, in the current COVID-19-affected situation of a world shortage of shipping, the first available transport window from Hong Kong was accepted, and our J Class shipment is on a vessel that is coming to Sydney via Melbourne. All being well, the ship will be unloading on Sept 16 at Port Botany. Allowing time for going through Customs, and transport for our depot, plus checking and repacking for the couriers, we are still anticipating that shops will have their J Class preorders at or before the end of September 2021.

Ixion’s HO Scale VR J Class locomotive is on its way to us! The production run is complete and the shipment departs Hong Kong on August 24. All being well, the locos should be in our hands and ready to distribute to model shops, and added to this website’s shop, around the middle of September. Please note that as of August 22, 2021 J549 is now SOLD OUT due to the pre-orders from shops, and will not be available from our webshop.

Holiday Closure

Ixion Model Railways will be on holidays from New Year’s Eve 2020, and will reopen on Monday 18 January, 2021. Any website loco purchases are unlikely to be shipped in that period. We thank you for your understanding as we enjoy a well-earned break with our loved ones.

We will be back in late January with updates on the production run of the VR J Class – check our Facebook page (viewable at the bottom of our Home page) for the latest news.
