Announcements of new models

Postby JohnP » Tue Jan 10, 2023 9:00 pm

With the launch of the Roco 2023 catalogue today as well as the Piko catalogue a couple of weeks ago, I am curious to know if anyone has spotted any new models that would be of interest to those modelling the Greek scene.

This site is an excellent source for the new catalogues: https://www.trainsdepot.org/manufacturer_catalogs/

As far as I can see, no specifically Greek models have been announced (not a surprise unfortunately). I'd be interested if anyone with more knowledge than me spots any new models of prototypes that have visited Greece. I fondly remember the Roco catalogue of a few years ago that featured some of BarbaPanagos' photos of European wagons in Greece.

Nice idea to start the thread John! Let's start digging :mrgreen:

That flatbed at page 30 of the Jouef catalog looks so close to our Kioleidis N6!
Stakes position looks right.
what do you think?

Great so see some promising options already!

Mitkoudis, I am tempted by the Connecting Europe Express panorama car that you spotted. And there certainly seems to be a bottomless market for the DB V221!!! Who is buying all of these?!?!

And BarbaP the RS flatbed from Jouef certainly passes the "sight test" it does look very close. Someone with measurements will be better able to decide how suitable it is for conversion to our Rgss. Assuming its close enough, all we need is some decals!

Nice find John! Length 19.90 m is right!

Our N6 has metal "inserts" between the wooden planks that one could model.
Buffers look identical while the end parapets have differences and some 3D replacements would be helpful there.

It certainly needs some work but it can be done, I think.

New CIWL restaurant model!

Marklin/Trix EDELWEISS PARLOR CAR EXPRESS set

Unfortunately, part of a six car set... :(
Lets hope there will be a single model available soon
