Hello All

Does anyone on either side of the pond have any of these new PIKO G scale locos and cars ?
Taurus, BR 218, Shimmns and Eaos Gondola ?

If anyone has any of there and is willing to share there thoughts and pictures it would be great
they look solid, maybe a bit LGBish , but that OK, just currious as Id like to get some of them,
read some reviews but cannot find any reviews other than GR's on the BR 218, anyone know of a gardenprofi
review ?, link to it ?

I see the freight cars come with plastic wheels, will steel USA etc wheels fit into the trucks without modz ?
or do you have to buy LGB or PIKO steel wheels ?

Well thanks all, they look intrequing, and the new railbus which seems to be delayed should be interesting,
I can only imagine whats after them , V200 for 1/2 the cost of LGB ?, how about some other electrics ? maybe a BR 103
....... hopfully more era 4 and 5 freight cars and maybe by chance DB intercityTEE or Dayzug passenger cars which we
all really need BUT keep them under $ 150 each, thats my only complaint is the freight cars seem a bit spendy but have
not seen them yet.

Well have a good day .

Terry

I got the first shipment of VT98. And I personally think they are well done. We are selling also for the freight department a winter sport set and laso a seperate luggage set to be glued into the luggage department. In addtion are we offering out of our unpainted figure series a set of 18 figures for the engine and the second car. Because of its construction 18 figures is what you can fit into the cars without cutting the legs of the figures of.

We also offer a VT98 TrueSound-DCC installation kit with installation guide or of course our installtion service - buy the car with some or all of it installed.

Some of you might wonder - why a wintersport set. I grew up in Wuppertal, Germany. As a child I took several times the VT98 from Wuppertal into the Bergische Land - Naturarena - Bergisches Land Tourismus so I know that the prototype went to wintersport territories.

Hi Fritz and others who are interested in this.

I have mixed painted and unpainted figures that I think fit perfectly into the VT98. The unpainted ones you can easily modified with a head gun, so you can get different arm, leg and head positions. Some of our customers took 60 or more figures and added accessories and others, because they fit well into other standard gauge rolling stock e.g. LGB's DB passenger cars, and some of the American rolling stock. If I wanted to be funny I would call their scale 1:G. I have also partially utilized the Wintersport set. - Enjoy
