Ok, the only thing I know is an uncommented construction drawing of the class 246 at the fair in cologne 2010. Maybe some shops announced the model based on the drawing.

Saying "uncommented" I mean, that when I asked the presenter at Tillig's counter (an older man who I saw at any fair since years controlling Tillig fair layout) about the model and it's bogie configuration (if they use the 189-gear or use the right dimensions) he answered that the 246 is a diesel version of the 189, and that - after I said the 189 is a Siemens-loco, the 246 a Bombardier-product - they all have the same dimensions. :eh:
I thought: Alright, maybe you shouldn't be at the counter but stick to the layout...

Roco announced Russian ЧМЭ-3 (ChME-3) switcher in H0 for 2012.
Hope they'll repeat it in TT soon...

I'm afraid they won't... Since all people responsible for Roco's TT program are from the former east german GDR and convinced of their old DR, they don't do anything that's not usable with the DR or comes from this time. Sad thing...

Roco has some new freight cars as well. The 2012 catalog appeared and then quickly disappeared from their site but you can get it here:

That's true, but it was used on DR-tracks near the czech border. And Roco developed this loco in H0, so they only had to recalculate it.

@ConducTTor
Yes they also do a new tank car (seems to be "in" at the moment after Heris doing some bad ones), but that's also a car from the DR (running until today).

The same thing with the ChME-3. They already announced it in H0, so they only have to recalculate it in TT.

And, comparing with the T478/754/753/750 - ChME-3 was in use not only in Czechoslovakia and Czech Republic, but also in Poland and Russia (and other ex-USSR countries). More countries = more customers = more perpectives for model!

(To say more, ChME-3 also were used in Albania, Iraq, Syria and India, although I doubt that there are any TT-modellers in Iraq or Syria :) )
