If you think it's good, go for it. The catalogue numbers are fine, all proper stuff. They have been doing this for a number of years now - groups of locos, sometimes with shed +turntable. I have no idea of what English prices normally are, so check some continental websites prior to order. But if it is good for you and you model DR - do it.

Well it looks genuine to me - if you fancy it then go for it.

Thanks for the replies. One of the loco's is over £200 on it's own so they seem good value
but of course I'll have the 6 pin digi problem...

It is an appalling thought but I'd take advantage of any of these factory offers while Fleischmann still have HO stock to sell....

Under Roco the future may be very uncertain for some sections of the Fleischmann range and clearly they are trying to reduce the stock level they inherited when they acquired the firm. Fleischmann were sitting on a huge back catalogue of models and Roco need shift some of this - I'd watch the internet like a hawk and hoover up these deals where ever and whenever they appear!

I'll look into them more carefully and if I make a purchase I'll sort out some pix.

While it seems pretty good, I just did a bit of research and found out you could probably save yourself 50 or 60 quid by purchasing them direct from Kramm.
All these loks are on special, the first 3 at 151Euro, and the 56class at 134Euro, these prices without tax cos I live in Oz. When you do the exchanges and things I reckon it will save around 60quid or so.

I'm sure most UK residents have already noticed, but just in case they haven't I will point out that the value of sterling has plummeted against the Euro in the past month and credit card companies charge a hefty % based fee for foreign transactions. These two factors will eat into any saving you might make buying from Euro land rather than a UK retailer who is charging you in sterling.

You are certainly spot on regarding exchange rates - seem have have gone against us by around 25%
over the last year in europe...makes train shopping in Germany less fun now...
