Does anyone have copies of LGB Depesche (or Depesche Index) for 2000 to 2005?

Not so much a "wanted" item as a "help wanted" item.

I've seen a reference in a German magazine to an article in LGB Depesche about the (full size) HF130 locomotive that LGB subsequently launched (in October 2005?) in model form as 20590 and 21590 (and other variants later).

That reference (using google translate) was "(the model built by) my father was based on an old plan in the LGB Depesche from the small, originally 2-axle LGB diesel locomotive ". As I now own the largely scratch-built locomotive referred to, I'm curious to know whether the article in Depesche was written by the model's creator, or whether it simply served to inspire him to build it.

I would be greatly obliged if anyone who has a set of Depesche magazines covering that period (say 2000-2004 - issues 100 to 119), or even an index to those issues, could tell me precisely which issue the article in question was in. Once I know which issue it was in, I can try to find a way to obtain a copy!

Here's hoping!

All the best

My 'Google Feu' is not good, but there would appear to have been a 'Depesche Index' for 112-115?

Grootspur did have one, but the link is now dead.


I wonder if any of the libraries would have one?

What do I see on the cover of this one?


Possibly not??


Have not trawled these breadcrumbs..

Thanks, PhilP

. . . but it has led me to a site with lots of high resolution front covers, including this one . . .

. . . which is issue 122 . . . but as this is Autumn 2005, it might be about the release of models 20590 and 21590 rather than the one I'm looking for. Does anyone have a copy to confirm or otherwise?

Maybe the release was covered (belatedly?) in issue 124 (Spring 2006 - with a picture of a HF130 on the cover) . . .

It's frustrating that that site seems to "have a gap" between issues 75 and 122 - the very period within which the issue I'm interested in, is likely to be in.

The search goes on!

All the best
