Tragically, there was a fire at a shipping yard in Viernheim, Germany that completely destroyed all the inventory belonging to the German manufacturer, Kiss Modellbahnen. See here ...

Thankfully they promise that their business will recover.

Bad news. but it looks like its just a warehouse fire. it dosent look like the tooling went up in the blaze.
untill i read this i cant claim to have heard of the manufacturer but for those who model large scale german, you have my sympathies.

What a waste - we were looking at thise fine locos a while back - perhaps some of the best made models in the world.
I looped by their stand at Nuremberg (at least I'm pretty sure it was their own stand!) and scooped up a heap of litrature. Really lovely models!

What a waste....

I had ordered one of the RhB G-Scale Rhaethia steam locomotives that went up in smoke.....but am told that the RhB electric locos due later were not in the I might get something.......
