Hi,

The Nürnberg Toy Fair closed its doors last monday.  Quite a few new announcements. You prpbalbly an read about the LGB stuff elsewhere. They will chew it up in every forum.

Occre from Spain, who were very succesful with their streetcar kit series last year, offer a Berlin tramway now. A fried of mine measeured it up and took the prototype pictures in a Berlin museum last year.

The Stephenson Rocket in 1 : 24 for 45mm modl track will be welcome, I think. At  least I ordered me one. Very good for RC/Accu.

Oh crap! Now I'm going to have to make room for one more locomotive!

How much, and where can I buy it?

Hi,

Occre kits are sold all over the world in hobby shops. Their ship models are very popular. I have no idea, what the Stephenson Rocket will cost, but the streetcar kit sell for 70 - 95 Euro i Germany. You can ask here: http://www.bretzler.eu/

A Rocket in 1 : 24 is a very small locomotive.  You can park it in the smokebox of a Shay. There is still the minicraft plastic kit in 1 : 26 on the market

I thought it looked familiar - check out Jack's model: www.mylargescale.com/Community/Forums/tabid/56/forumid/8/postid/9987/view/topic/Default.aspx :)

[One minor discrepancy - Jack mentions his model "had been sitting on my shelf for years" yet Occre says it is a new product.  Maybe the website hasn't been updated for years!] ;)

The 'motorisation' kit looks interesting.  Wonder how you make the trolley chassis fit a 0-2-2. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/laugh.gif

Hi,

Jack´s model looks loike the mincraft plastic kit in 1 : 26 http://www.moduni.de/product_info.php/products_id/6141101

The Spanish Occre kit surely will be offered in the US sooner or later. But it should not be a problem to order it in Europe somewhere. Ater al, European very often buy their stuff in the US or elsewhere in the word, because they don´t feel like waiting until a local dealer offers it. In most cases it is much more expensive to depend on the local dealer. I have to work for my money, so I check, where I spent how much of it. After all, I have to pay my PC and the Internet So I might as well use it, to make a little extra pocket money.

Have Fun
