old LGB 1968 - 2007 (Ernst Paul Lehmann Patentwerk) basically went bankrupt (long story)

New LGB 2007 - present (Now Märklin) Märklin brought them and have kept the names and most of the models but introduced their own electrics and control systems. Ie MFX vs MTS (both a type of DCC)

Hi Jon,

Here are some details of the new coaches: LGB 31353 - Personenwagen 3. Klasse, K.Sächs.Sts.E.B., Ep.I

Regards

Martin
Many thanks, Martin - that's what I was looking for, no idea why I couldn't find it?
Hmmm, they look nice too - especially the dark brown one (the pale green one looks very much like the ones that I already have two of from the Saxon Historical Coach set).... just wondering about the roof colours, I know those are probably prototype pics but do they look very greenish to you, rather than the dark grey finish of most previous versions?

Jon.

Yes, M/LGB is an affectation I and some others on here use (oo-er....), not an "official" designation - to differentiate the current post-2006 Marklin-owned incarnation of LGB from the old family-run EPL company that we all knew and (mostly) loved!
As there is of course still a huge amount of pre-Marklin-ownership LGB around, I just find it useful to indentify which time period of products I am referring to.

Jon.
