It's not just the exchange rate. Take a look here http://www.mbs-sebnitz.de/tt-dieselloko ... -ep-v.html 115 Euro and it's a weathered model at that.

It is cheap but, weathered models don't seem to sell all that well.

These have been on special for over 2 years that I can remember

It's not just the weathered models though. It's all of them. Here's another https://www.elriwa.de/aktionen/spur-tt/ ... 1-dr-ep.iv

And the Ludmillas that used to be 130 - 150 Euro are now coming to dealers at 99 euro MSRP.

BR38 for 159 Euros now that is cheap!! However, I have also observed Rico locos being discounted for a long time already. My guess is that Roco can't shift it's stuff for list prices that are far higher than other manufacturers. After all Roco was traditionally a cheaper brand than e.g. Fleischman and Marklin (in other scales that is). So perhaps the premium branding strategy pursued in TT scale is backfiring ??
