Fleischmann Discontinuing HO Track System

Eurorailhobbies latest news - Thu, 2020/02/27 - 00:37

Please note: This DOES NOT affect the Fleischmann N scale Piccolo Track System in any way.

It is unfortunate that we have to report that Fleischmann is stopping the production of its HO scale track system due to damaged tooling.  Fleischmann ceased production of HO scale trains (consolidating HO in the Roco program) a few years ago but Fleischman had continued producing HO track to support previous HO customers. 

We do have a stock of many track pieces and turnouts at this point and we will try to obtain as much as we can before factory stocks dwindle.  If you are in the process of completing a layout we advise you to order what you need as soon as possible. See below for the entire notice from Flieschmann as we received it.

TIP: You can transition from Fleischmann to the Roco-Line track system using the FLEISCHMANN 6437 or Roco 42612 rail adapters and use Fleischmann ballast if required to help blend the transition.

25.02.2020

Information: FLEISCHMANN H0 tracks

We regret to inform you that the production tools for the FLEISCHMANN H0 tracks 6102 and 6112 are no longer functional after 40 years. We have two defective tools which are irreparably damaged. During the last months we have tried to find a possibility to repair them, but unfortunately without success. As a result, the two tracks just mentioned cannot be reproduced anymore.

This means that the FLM H0 track assortment cannot be offered completely in the future. For this reason, we had to make the difficult decision to generally stop the production of the FLEISCHMANN H0 track in the future.

All items that are still in stock will of course be available as long as stocks lasts.

This decision was not taken lightly, as we are aware of the popularity of the FLEISCHMANN H0 track system. How ever, due to the circumstances, it is not possible for us to continue this.

As an alternative we can recommend the track system Roco-Line with and without bedding.  With the transition rail connectors FLEISCHMANN 6437 or Roco 42612 you can connect the track systems with each other.

We hope for your understanding and remain with best regards,

Your team at Modelleisenbahn München GmbH

2020 New Items Toyfair Newslettter - Part II Roco/Fleischmann/Brawa

Eurorailhobbies latest news - Tue, 2020/02/25 - 09:04

As with every new Toyfair, we will bring you what we saw as the top new highlights from Nuremberg, Germany, toy and model capital of the world. In part two we will cover the new releases from Roco, Fleischmann and Brawa.

Please note that when we mention that at an item is 'sold out at the factory' it means that the factory's limited production run has all been allocated to or ordered by dealers. We have a limited number of these items allocated to us and they can be ordered from our website (while quantities last).

      

ROCO 2020 New Items     FLEISCHMANN 2020 New Items     BRAWA 2020 New Items

Quick Highlights Roco/Fleischmann New Z21 Digital Components
  • Roco added a number of new Z21 components to their already very popular digital system. The surprise however, was that Roco went directly after the 1 and G Scale market by introducing a new Z21 XL 6 AMP Command Station, stock # 10870 and as well a supporting  Z21 XL Booster, stock # 10869. Not only do you get all the features of the standard Z21, but a 6 AMP, 20V output. The corresponding transformer to provide this power is the Roco 10857 announced last year.
  • In addition to last Fall’s announcement of the new Z21 Switch Decoder, Roco announced the new Z21 “Signal Decoder”, stock # 10837. This is universally applicable DCC decoder that can be independently updated and can comprehensively manage complex signals as well as being RailCom compatible.
  • To manage all of the programing of complex CV’s, configuring and networking your system, Roco introduces the Z21 pro Link, stock # 10838. Simply introduce what you would like to do through the menu option and voila, the proLink looks after all the programming.
New Tooling – Locomotives:
  • The most exciting piece of new tooling announced from Roco, hands down, was their new self-driving, fully operational “Slewing Railway Cranes”. You will soon be able to view our video taken of this amazing model working on a beautiful Station Layout at the show. These ran very smoothly back and forth on the track and performed some track hauling work with precision using a PS4 joystick. Two models are being featured and are available for both DC and AC Marklin Users. The first is the DB Version found under stock # 73035 and the AC Marklin Version under stock # 79035. The second is the OBB Version found under stock # 73036 and the AC Marklin Version under stock # 79036.
  • New tooling also in a new CSD Railcar. The DC Version under stock # 70372 and the DCC w/Sound Version under # 70373. Another version can be found for the ZSSK. The DC Version under stock # 70382 and the DCC w/Sound Version under # 70383.

Fleischmann - N New Tooling – Locomotives:
  • The first of which, the DB Class 260 Diesel Locomotive. These locomotives will finally come with features like;
    • Maintenance free motor
    • LED headlights on each end of the locomotive
    • Spring loaded central axle * Metal rods
    • The locomotive noses are reproduced to exact scale.
    • Separately applied shunter's handles
    • Unobstructed view throughout the driver's cab.
    • The analog version is found under stock # 722401 and the DCC version under stock # 722481. A DB AG version class 363 is offered under stock # 722402 and the DCC version under stock # 722482. Sadly, they are unable to incorporate a sound decoder.
  • Another new tooling, is that of the DB, Accumulator railcar class 515 and control cab coach. These railcars will feature;
    • Rich detailing on the model in red design
    • Unobstructed view through passenger compartment
    • Model with separately applied plug-in parts
    • The motor wagon features a 1st class compartment with 6 seats
    • Headlights and interior lighting can be switched with a DIP switch.
    • The analog version is found under stock # 740100 and the DCC Sound version under stock # 740170.
New Tooling – Rolling Stock:
  • A completely new tooling arrives in the form of a 2 Axle Stake Car and Fleischmann is offering several versions, with and without loads and/or in sets for various countries. Far to0 many to mention for the purpose of this newsletter highlight. A few that did capture our attention was the SBB 2 Piece Circus Knie Stake Car set. This is being done in conjunction with Artitec who is most likely making the vehicle loads. This can be found under stock # 825732.
  • Another new 4 Axle Stake car comes with side plates suitable for transport of steel plates or rolled sections. Again, far to many versions to list but the following caught our attention. A 3 Piece DB AG version w/Pipe Loads is found under stock # 826702.
  • Another new 4 Axle Dust Silo Container car. Again, far to many versions to list but the following caught our attention. A 2 Piece KVG version is found under stock # 849002 and another striking version for ENVILOC under stock # 849004.
  • Also new tooling for a 4 Axle Pressure Gas Tank Car with heat shields. A VTG 3 Piece set can be found under stock # 849102. Several single car versions as well to be seen.
 New Tooling – Coach Stock:
  • New tooling comes in for the Deutsche Bahn AG. UIC-X carriage with an Intercity IC Coaches. These can be found under stock # 863926;  863927.
  • Although not new tooling, this very popular set in HO comes to N Scale. The Auto-train Christophorus of the Deutsche Bundesbahn. This consists of 3 sets; Set 1 - 3 Piece 1st Class Coach Set # 881911; Set 2 - 3 Piece 1st Class Coach Set (including Restaurant Coach) # 881912 and finally the 2 Piece Auto-Train Car Carrier wagons, stock # 881913. These are a one-time issue, so reserve now and avoid disappointment as the will sell out quickly.
Brawa – HO

Brawa is known for its absolute attention to detail, no matter whether a locomotive, freight car or passenger car. Though they do not offer a lot of new tooling each year, they do offer as many variations as possible all at once. This can be hard on the budget at times as you just want to get them all!

New Tooling – Locomotives:
  • Finally, a manufacturer steps up to the plate to build the 02 Steam Locomotive. The 02 was built in parallel with the 01. Primary difference was the 01 had twin two-cylinder design whereas the 02 had a composite 4 cylinder design. Unfortunately, due to technical issues, priority was given to the construction of the 01. The ten 02’s that we’re built we’re eventually turned into the 01 locomotives. In tribute to this fabulous machine, Brawa is making the DRG versions of the BR 02 001 which had a smaller Wagner Smoke Deflector. The various versions can be found under stock # 40920 for DC Analog; stock # 40922 DCC Digital Extra w/Sound; stock # 40923 for Marklin AC Digital Extra w/Sound.
Other Locomotive Highlights;
  • Brawa is also making the DRG versions of the BR 02 008 which had a large Wagner Smoke Deflector. The various versions can be found under stock # 40940 for DC Analog; stock # 40942 DCC Digital Extra w/Sound; stock # 40943 for Marklin AC Digital Extra w/Sound.
  • Brawa has also redone the V160 Diesel. Though not completely new, it has totally changed the technical aspects as well as super detailed various optics of the body and chassis shells. The DB BR V160 comes in the DC analog version stock # 41156; DCC Digital Extra w/Sound stock # 41158 and for Marklin AC Digital Extra w/Sound stock # 41159. Of course, several other versions are being offered but to any to mention for this report.
  • Brawa is making the BR 425 MAV Electric Railcar which looks amazing. The DC Analog version found under stock # 44258; DCC Digital Extra w/Sound stock # 44260 and the Marklin AC Digital Extra DCC w/Sound stock # 44261.
  • Another gorgeous 4-part Electric Railcar will be the OBB BR 4024 with its striking red/white colour scheme against blacked-out windows. The DC Analog version found under stock # 44262; DCC Digital Extra w/Sound stock # 44264 and the Marklin AC Digital Extra DCC w/Sound stock # 44265.
  • Brawa is also making the kkStB Steam Locomotive in a Train Set with 4 2-Axle Coaches. The DC analog Version is found under stock # 70000 and the DCC Digital Extra w/Sound is under stock # 70002. Marklin AC users will get the AC Digital Extra w/Sound under stock # 70003.

Finally, Brawa is offering a fantastic deal consisting of the BR 212 Diesel Locomotive including 3 Silberlinge Passenger Coaches and one Cab Control Coach. The DC Analog version of offered under stock # B2008; the DCC Digital Extra Version under stock # B2009 and for Marklin AC Digital Extra w/Sound, stock # B2010.

Other Coach Highlights;
  • Last year Brawa delivered the TWINDEXX Vario IC2 Double-Deck Coaches. These are ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! From their superb detailing to the last detail both inside and out, to the blue LED lighting, these coaches are exquisite. They sold out so quickly and now fortunately Brawa is offering another road # series. Here’s your chance to experience them so pre-order now. In DC, we have a 3-piece set, stock # 44521 which can be expanded by single coaches stock #’s 44523 and 44524. The DCC Digital Extra version, we have a 3-piece set, stock # 44527 which can be expanded by single coaches stock #’s 44528 and 44529. For Marklin AC, we have the AC Digital Extra version, we have a 3-piece set, stock # 44530 which can be expanded by single coaches stock #’s 44531 and 44532.
  • Brawa is also doing a NEW Tooling series of 2 Axle Coaches with built-in interior lighting and close couplers. They are being offered for 6 different railways.
  • The DB version baggage coach, stock # 46705; passenger coaches stock # 46706; 46707; and 46708. These can all be retrofitted for Marklin AC users by simply adding a pick up shoe.

Other Freight Highlights;

Each year, Brawa offers a wide selection of different era’s; different types and different railways, far to many to list in this newsletter. There are however a couple of New Tooling Highlights;

  • DB 4 Axle Container (new construction the Boogie type 931) found in stock # 50301. Various other models from 50302 through 50305 can also be found.
Brawa – N

Unfortunately, not any new tooling in N Scale this year. Different versions of their DB V160 Diesel and BR 212 Diesels is it. Very important though was their reintroduction of their highly successful TWINDEXX VARIO IC2-Double Deck Coaches.

  • The DB Red versions sold out at the factory before they ever hit the market and when they did, they soon went. This year, they are offering the white/red stripe version 3 Piece Version under stock # 64512 and additional coaches # 64513 and # 64514. All coaches have built-in Interior LED Lighting.
  • Brawa is offering their DR Passenger Coaches Bghw with built-in Interior Lighting. These can be found under stock # 65067; 65068; 65069 and Mitropa Restaurant Coach # 65070.
  • Brawa’s ever popular SBB Coaches are also coming back with built-in Interior Lighting. These can be found under stock # 65234; 65235; and # 65237.

As a final note, Brawa announced this past week that factory production delays will occur in China due to the Corona-19 Virus. This has lead them to offer an expanded discontinued items list with savings up to 30%. We will be publishing this shortly so time to take advantage of some terrific savings as long as supplies last.

This concludes Part II of our annual Toyfair newsletter. Stay tuned for Part III coming shortly.

Eurorailhobbies latest news - Tue, 2020/02/18 - 03:01
As with every new Toyfair, we will bring you what we saw as the top new highlights from Nuremberg, Germany, toy and model capital of the world. Here manufacturers from all over the world gather to display their new products and invite dealers from all over the world to come view and place their orders for the upcoming year. The event helps factories get a sense of what will be popular and what will not be so popular thereby, giving them the opportunity to adjust their production quotas. This in turn, gives dealers first hand information on how to order over the year. Stay tuned as we add photos and videos taken from the fair.   Please note that when we mention that at an item is 'sold out at the factory' it means that the factory's limited production run has all been allocated to dealers. We have a limited number of these items allocated to us and they can be ordered from our website (while quantities last).

Marklin 2020 New Items     TRIX 2020 New Items     LGB 2020 New Items

Marklin/Trix Highlights

2020 Insider Models – though announced at the end of 2019, its worth noting all the New Tooling elements. In HO, Marklin is doing the complete model of the CLASS RAm “Edelweiss Diesel Powered Railcar, # 39706. (In Trix, this model is found under # 22976. This railcar is completely made of metal, with factory installed LED lighting throughout the coaches; even lighted table lamps, engine room and cab lighting. In Z Scale, Insider Club members will get the Cl 41 Steam Locomotive with Oil Tender # 88275. This is almost all new tooling with an all metal construction body. It’s important to note that this is part of the 30 Year Anniversary of the MHI Group who work with Marklin to come up with these exclusive models. As with all MHI items, they are limited to dealer subscriptions and typically sell out quickly. The 30 Year MHI are adding in the following prestigious items to start their celebration off;

· French SNCF CL BB 9200 # 30380 and matching 4-piece coach set # 40691. These retro models are extremely popular and sell out quickly. Typically, in original style packaging but updated to current digital MDX decoder.

· The very affordable Cl 74 Tank locomotive is coming with a full MFX/DCC Sound Decoder and a matching 4 Piece Coach set # 43146. All coaches fitted with LED lighting and Cab Control car has changeover marker lights and a number of sound/light functions built-in!

· MHI has a 30 Year Happy Birthday locomotive # 36292. It’s a Cl 247 Diesel Locomotive painted in a fictitious V200 paint scheme offering a MFX/DCC Sound Decoder. The first production run sold out on the Toyfair! We have a few left for pre-ordering, so reserve yours before its to late.

· Another completely new tooling is the DB Class 78 Tank Locomotive # 39786 MFX/DCC Decoder and in Trix 22876. Yes, this loco has been out off and on for many years, but now we have a completely new tooling meaning very intricate metal construction with many separately applied details. The Cl 078 MFX/DCC Sound Version is available under stock # 39785 and in Trix, # 22875.

Marklin/Trix Museum Cars

Many of our very loyal Museum Car Collectors have been or will be gravely disappointed to learn that the factory direct dealers will no longer be able to obtain these cars outside of the museum in Goppingen, Germany. As many of you know, the new owners of Marklin/Trix/LGB decided to build a completely new Museum including a Bistro for its’s guests. This project has had its delays due to lack of construction workers, however, it is finally scheduled to officially open in June of this year. Senior management thus decided this to be an opportune time to once again, cancel this program offering and pull the sale of these museum cars back to the Museum only. The fact that most consumers will never be able to visit the museum to obtain these collectibles each year, was of no concern apparently. We will however, continue to strive to have this program reinstated this year. We will make an official announcement as soon as they come to realize the consequences of their decision.

LGB Highlights

· LGB focused on children coming out with a Construction Site Starter Set under stock # 70503. This can be expanded with a construction site add-on set # 49500. There is a excavator, dump car and various accessories to add more play value to the overall theme for kids. Looks like great fun.

· New tooling at an impressive price is the HSB Class V 10C Diesel locomotive, stock # 20320. This comes with an MFX/DCC Sound decoder; Buhler motor w/ball bearings, opening doors. Running sounds also work in Analog operation.

In summary, Marklin’s program in itself was not nearly as extensive as last year, but they certainly made major new tooling investments throughout all of their programs; from Z to N to HO to 1 and G. Well done. Your sure to find several pleasing models to adorn your railway layout and/or collections. So, pre-order early and take advantage of pre-order savings.
