Marklin/TRIX HO Special Edition BR08 Heavy Steamer Announced!

Eurorailhobbies latest news - Fri, 2018/09/28 - 02:25

Marklin and Trix have made an suprise announcement of an amazing new DB BR08 heavy steam locomovitve with all the 'bells and whistles' - MFX+, Sound, Smoke, Fine Details & more!

The locomotive now designated as road number 08 1001 went first to the maintenance facility at Berlin East Station after being completed in July of 1952. Here it was scheduled to pull the D 13/14 pair of express trains to/from Stralsund with the start of the winter sche- dule on October 5, 1952. The records of locomotive supervisor Specht at the maintenance facility at Berlin East Station reveal the following: On October 8, the unit came early from Leipzig and hauled the D 13 to Stralsund without maintenance. Despite "bad" powdered coal, the steam generation was good. Like the run out, the run back also occurred without problem. Another run on October 10 also gave no cause to complain and locomotive super- visor Specht noted: "Best steam generation. Bunkers 2+3 were still about 80 cm / 31 inches full on arrival in Stralsund." After transfer to the FVA in Halle in February of 1953, intensive test and measurement runs were done that resulted in many new findings.

MARKLIN/TRIX/LGB 2018 Fall New Items Announced!

Eurorailhobbies latest news - Thu, 2018/08/30 - 02:23

The Marklin group of companies - Marklin, Trix, and LGB - have announced their Fall 2018 New Items programs.  While Fall New Items programs are usually one of the smaller and least interesting of the year, we think this year's program stands out with a few items to take notice of. Pricing for all Fall 2018 New Items will be posted shortly.

For Marklin HO fans, 36433 is a new Ludmilla Class 232 Heavy Diesel locomotive with an all-new WATER-based peizo smoke/exhaust system.  It seems to use a vaporizer similar to 'vape' devices to produce a realistic multi-stage exhaust effect.  This loco is an MHI Exclusive item so will be limited and will likely sell-out fast - order yours now!

Trix has a spectacular looking ERA III Rheingold E10 Loco and Car Set for Minitrix N scale fans.  This set matches the train as it ran in 1962 with a 'temporary' E10 electric locomotive and the beautiful blue/creme paint scheme (both loco and cars are limited MHI Exclusiv program items). The loco is considered temporary as it is a 'regular' E10 which was used while the more distinctive streamlined E10.12 was being built. Also in N scale is a classic V100 in era III livery with full sound and an era III E41 electric locomotive (new tooling!), also with full sound.
