Newbie info:
In this thread I have M/LGB, I assume (never assume always check) that this is Marklin/LGB, which suggests alternative LGB, could somebody enlighten me please.
You are correct young James!

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.

It looks, as expected, to be the same green as the "limited edition" Saxon IVk (running number 145, I think?) from a couple of years back.

Thanks for posting the vid, some very interesting things on display!

See that's the colour i was expecting i haven't been out to check mine i had in my minds eye that the saxon IVk was darker but i thought the VIk looked much lighter in that video, might just be my eyes, guess i will find out when it arrives.

Don't You Wish G-rail was like that?

Haha, yes, wouldn't that be nice? But a lot more people would have to commit to going along, before they could attract suppliers and manufacturers over from Germany.... though Bertram Heyn seems to do excellent business at Llanfair, he's coming back this year for the third time (I've already placed my pre-order with him for what I want to collect at the show)!

Love that little green centre-cab diesel at around 5:50 in the vid.... anyone know if it's a scratchbuild or a limited-run production model for somewhere?

Yes, there are times like this when I am extremely relieved that I don't "do" Swiss...... ;)

Just received the latest issue of the LGB Depesche Magazine. It mentions 3 new steam locos, all fitted with mfx decoder and sound:

a. The Green Saxon Bull - No 212
b. A Black Saxon Bull No 99685 from the second class of VIK
c. Lenz i 0-4-0 No 99 5602 (Franzburg)

No dates of when the new locos will be released.

The Magazine also has a feature on the Green Saxon Bull along with the new coaches.

metal valve gear! not usual for M/LGB. Nice.
ALL of the 'wooden-box' models had metal valve gear, made by Magnus [all the HUGE SAR condensing tender loco, the Chinese and Andean stuff] and Aster [White Pass Mike, NG/G15, Mallet/Kitson - whatever].

This new model looks to be a real beauty, and I wish them well with it.

I have to agree Ed's GartenBahn does have some great looking models. I especially like the FO HGe 4/4 I. I've been drooling ever since I discovered Ed's website a few years ago. I had been wishing for many years that LGB would come out with one. I was hopeful they would back when the 2046 was released. I've had a LGB 3267 FO coach for about 25+ years just waiting for it.
