The very first production model of a new set of HSB cars has left Herforder Lokschuppen (now also known as Train Line Gartenbahnen) to have its picture taken.
You can see it here in the Large Scale database along with a detailed description and many more measurements than usual since this is the first car manufactured by this company using brand new molds.

This particular model is painted in the true HSB red, it is also available in a lighter red to match the HSB cars manufactured by LGB over the years.

There will be four types of these HSB cars, all closely following the prototypes that were in service over the years.

The first one is the 8-window version, then there will be two 7-window versions and one 6-window version.
On the database we will only show final production units, the Herforder Lokschuppen website currently shows some of the pre-production coaches.

There are at least two manufacturers who offer live-steam HSB locomotives, both in Germany.

Reppingen has the 99 6001, the 99 5811 and the 99 5901 and Wyko the 99 5001 and the 99 6011.

Websites (in German) are here:

Thanks Knut. It looks like the 5901 is no longer in stock. So far I guess no one makes the 7230's 1-E-1's. What are the Reppingen engines like? How about the kit versions? How do they run? How would you order one from the US? Is there a dealer here? Would the price be less without the vat tax? They look great in the picks. I guess if there are no 72xx's I would be more interested in a mallet or the 6001.

John,

I know a few publishers of German Large Scale magazines that cover Live-Steam, I'll check with them to see if anyone is planning to offer an HSB 1-E-1.
