Re: New Items for 2023

... I personally don't like the black/white/red 218. I'm more curious, if Tillig manages to print Märklin's and Piko's logos correctly. ... Tillig will probably leave them out, the locomotive now runs around without them. Picture of 218 497-6 I will complete my short ICE 1, which was modernized in ...

Some dealers currently have time-limited pre-order promotions, see elriwa.de CD-Cargo and ZSSK. Last year, the novelty S499 was also once surprisingly offered at a low price to clear the stocks.

Re: John Harmon Passenger cars

The resin trucks were too brittle and the wheel discs slid easily on the axles. My solution is the Rokal bogies - the originals of the resin castings, I think.

Come all well into the new year 2023!

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

The GTW 9020 is one of the series 9016-9027 and an F3 Phase IV, also named F5. The locos were built in September 1948 with the F7 electrical (heavier-duty cables and GM-D27C traction motors) and stainless steel grills instead of the chicken wire ones. As I see it, only the side porthole windows are ...

John Harmon Passenger cars

I have owned six Union Pacific Passenger cars for years. With them, I always had problems with the bogies and axles. So I started to collect the bogies from Rokal and to equip them with axles from Müller. The mounting of the bogies turned out to be quite simple, although it is still provisional. But...

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

... Regarding the winter cover on the last cooling fan, see picture. It is not always attached. But if so, Is it a simple box? You also see these on CNW or MILW F7's, etc. ...
