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.
Hi Jon,Is there a link to the two new coaches on M/LGB's site? For some reason I couldn't find even the page about the green VIk when I actually went to the website, though I could go to it directly by clicking on the link posted early in this thread......
Many thanks, Martin - that's what I was looking for, no idea why I couldn't find it?Hi Jon,
Here are some details of the new coaches: LGB 31353 - Personenwagen 3. Klasse, K.Sächs.Sts.E.B., Ep.I
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)
Can be seen in the video below (credit Dieter Grates ) not sue i like the green hoped it would be a bit darker?LGB have announced a new Saxon VIk running No 212 cat no 20481 and two coaches to complement cat nos 31354 and 31353 wood sided bogie coaches in epoch 1 livery
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.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!
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)!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?
Yes, there are times like this when I am extremely relieved that I don't "do" Swiss......ED's GartenBahn stuff looks great...….decisions, decisions, should I release more equity from the house?
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].metal valve gear! not usual for M/LGB. Nice.
Late, response to your kind heads up. I checked out arcadia, and saw the conductors coar in his list of stock.Try Arcadia rail 01706882900 for the conductors coach he is on holiday next week
