Trix have announced their new items for 2008 and there are some very good items in there including a K.Bay S3/6 and a reissuing of the Rheingold coaches. There is also the DB Senator as the Trix Profi club model with an add on coach set to make up a full length train.

22145 H0 DRG BR 45


22355 H0 NS V ELD4 Koploper


22184 H0 K.Bay.Sts.B. B VI Sound
This one is a real beauty and I have to have one.


22628 H0 DB IV BR 401 ICE 1 Grundset

I always regretted not getting these first time around and will definitely be getting a set of these this year.


23440 H0 DB-AG Dosto-Steuerwg. 2. Kl.

There is also a return to the building kits.







These and many other items can be viewed here.

Looks like a K.Bay 3/9 & a 232 (I may even let BRITHO have a play with the 232 if he behaves) for me then.

Fortunatly, I already have a Rheingold set.

There are some other very nice models as well, but I shall have to restrain myself.

Thanks for the pics Neil.

Wheel profiles on the Epoch I models look to be very fine
some of the other models still a little toy like

Did the TEE Bavaria have a DB Dining car, as all the pictures I have show it with a swiss (SBB) one

The Senator DMU is very interesting model as it was a pure DSG sleeping composite train.
Coaches still do not look to be scale 1/87 length

The BR 96 will most probably find a home on the layout.

Great lineup from Trix, looks like a very healthy mixture of epochs, and countries represented.

Which ones were you thinking of?

It's a bit expensive though at euro 599

Apparently they are making an effort to ensure that they will be so in future. e.g. the ICE3 is the first model of this train to have 1/87 length coaches.

The BR 96 will most probably find a home on the layout.

Neil,

The flanges on the 3/6 and DRG 18.4 look much finer than on the other locos pictured.
The tender on the 01 looks dated, when compared to other manufactures offerings of the same type.
I used Trix International coaches prior to Liliput releasing scale length 303 mm coaches.
I would buy three of the same coach and make two scale length ones by cutting and taking parts from each to make the coaches I wanted.
I have always considered Trix to be a quality product in the past and will be the first in the queue when they produce the new scale models.

David,

the S3/6 pictures show the Micro Metakit model.

Let´s hope the Trix turns out almost as good as the pictures show.

Apparently Trix has a knack for using other manufacturers´ models as samples - the Schwaiger 1012, the Lemaco RAm, the Micro S3/6.

If that's true I may have to buy a second one!


Sorry David, I didn't get that you were referring to the wheels only.

*scratches head* Now how can I get that Epoch V NS Koploper to appear in my layout without it looking out of place

I don't let that stop me. If I really like it I buy it.

Lokshop now have English language information of the new Trix items.

Just saw this item which looks very nice. The German version of the new items catalogue is on Lokshops site and some of the prices aren't bad at all. The E19 is only 199 Euros so maybe 160 at Modelbahnm Kramm?

Some lovely stuff...

What really impressed me when I could drag my eyes away from some of the nicer loco's was the dimensions of that gasometer on the trix website - appx 300x300x300 so if those are as shown and not over a big flat base, then at last, a commerical one that is of reasonable size (exxy though!!)

Getting closer....repeat after me (about a hundred times):

When the flanges are smaller and match the super quality & realism of the rest of the model
When the flanges are smaller and match the super quality & realism of the rest of the model
When the flanges are smaller and match the super quality & realism of the rest of the model

Actually - I'm probably already doomed - some already are....

but.... I couldn't stop my current love affiar with the LMS, Midland and S&C, so I'll just have to double the insanity and start a second layout....

Richard,

check out the Fleischmann class 95 and the Brawa class 56 (G4/5H). These have smaller flanges than the rest of the crowd, as do several Gützold engines.

Or, take a look at a Roco class 18.4 /S3/6), flangewise.

It wouldn't surprise me if they did reduce the flange size on the Trix models. There seems to be a change in this years catalogue where detail and scale accuracy are taking priority. There's so many good things to get this year. Where am I going to get all the money?
