Hello all,

It's been a while since anyone posted here, so I thought I would let you all know the delivery schedule has been updated on the new LGB website:

http://www.lgb-bahn.de/

For all you RhB fans, there is also a .pdf of the new intermodal postal container car scheduled for delivery in August, which looks very good indeed. It's not a repaint of the previous container cars, it looks like they did it right.

Thanks for the information. I have been afraid that LGB was going to just die and blow away.

RE: Updated LGB/Maerklin delivery schedule & products

Just a reminder - the delivery schedule on the lgb-bahn.de web site is being updated on a regular basis, looks like roughly once a month.
I have followed these updates to keep the information on www.gbdb.info up to date - for many of the new 2008 items, LGB/Maerklin actually met the planned delivery date, some ended up being pushed out a month and the odd one two months.
A heck of a lot better than Kiss where promised delivery dates are usually missed by a year or more or the product is cancelled completely.

I agree, they have put more effort into posting and meeting their deadline dates than most (if not all) of the other manufacturers. I've been quite impressed, actually, considering their operational constraints.

Not only that Keith,

I found that the "new" LGB is much more responsive, flexible and are bending over backwards to satisfy the customer.

They "fixed" the problem of the club car orders never getting to them for me and a number of my friends (where the coupons vanished between North America and Germany) with essentially no effort on my part............

Replied to every email I had sent honestly, factually, promptly and without beating around the bush........

Initiated that V200/V220 recall without hesitation.......

I must say, I'm impressed.

Regards, Knut

Knut,

Your report is good news. With them offering less than one tenth of the products provided by the old Lehmann, they better be good at P.R.

Also consider there is no OFFICIAL distribution for North America.
LAO




True..........

but you know addicts. They stop at nothing to get their regular fix, "LGB" fix that is.

RE: Updated LGB/Maerklin delivery schedule & products

August has been a pretty busy month for Maerklin/LGB I must say.

They shipped a whole slew of the new 2008 items - not to the US or Canada unfortunately:

36313 DB Passenger Car Am 203 blue
43263 Herforder Beercar
24841 Ruegensche Kleinbahn IVK 99954 Steam Loco
40894 Containercar 40 Years LGB
41354 Meisel Beercar
32734 HSB Cafe Car
31076 Zillertal Buffet Passenger car
36310 DB Passenger Car Bm 234 green
36314 DB Passenger Car Am 203 green
36315 DB Passenger Car Bm 232 green

Pretty much per schedule that Axel posted above but missing those two items from what I see:

30674 RhB Personenwagen 2. Klasse
47890 RhB Post Containerwagen

Wow!!!

Beautiful job Keith,

How do you do the lettering? Especially the white one.

Does anyone actually sell decals that are usable?

Regards, Knut

Thanks Knut!

The white stripes are painted, but the large slogan is white vinyl lettering. I did the typesetting work then got a local print shop to make me the vinyl decals out of very thin sheets. They worked very well. I'm sure the whole thing ended up costing me more than what the LGB one will be, but I got the satisfaction out of making it. :)

It sure looks like they did an excellent job on this one...I bet it will be very popular. I'm just building one of the newest four-axle drop deck RhB cars to carry mine (Sb 65675).

RE: Updated LGB/Maerklin delivery schedule & products

I just checked the LGB/Maerklin website, and they have now posted the shipping schedule for September. It looks like the post container will ship in October.

RE: Updated LGB/Maerklin delivery schedule & products

The October shipping schedule is now posted, as well as a picture of the new catalog. Looking through the latest list shows that the little RhB switchers are no longer in production, and sadly the Ge6/6ii is no longer listed.
