Thanks to CSD I`m able to show of this model of a flatbed wagon of the DB epoch V. Thanks again Mark, really appreciated :-)

P.L.-Modellbau (or Peter Lorenz-Modellbau) has specialized in the production of a large variety of freight wagons, passenger wagons and some loco`s. They also produce a good variety of TT stuff, like containers, trucks, track side details, etc.


Flachwagen Samms-u, DB AG
Item # 31150

- Epoch V
- length over bumper: 131.5 mm
- 6 axle
- short coupling mechanism according to NEM 352
- short coupler head to exchange couplers according NEM 358
- comes with old BTTB style couplers
- metal wheels, isolated on one side
- plastic shunting rail imitation
- weight: 34 grams (almost bang on to NEM 302)

This model of an open flat bed wagon of the DB AG is of high quality, low rolling resistance and crisp detail print. The attached pamphlet warns you in multiple languages that this is not a toy :lol: . All parts have been assembled and no spare parts are provided. The model packaging looks a bit cheap, but then again, it does the trick. I`m impressed with the quality of the model and already looking at other models for my fall oder.

No longer in business. Some of his models will be soon manufactured by (not final decision) Tillig, Roco, Modist. Busch (reality fact), there are a lot of companies that purchased his stuff and sell it to each other.

You're absolutely right! Like I mentioned in my comment. Busch bought the former PL , but has he realised them yet? Same thing happened to the electric BR 218/ E 18 from former Jatt. Tillig purchased most of his models and never built the BR 218, later it was sold or (handed) to Modellshop Sebnitz, they never built it either, now it's back in Tillig's hands (new owners). I will believe it when I see it!

The first version is already in the hands of German customers.
