MARKLIN/TRIX/LGB 2018 Fall New Items Announced!
The Marklin group of companies - Marklin, Trix, and LGB - have announced their Fall 2018 New Items programs. While Fall New Items programs are usually one of the smaller and least interesting of the year, we think this year's program stands out with a few items to take notice of. Pricing for all Fall 2018 New Items will be posted shortly.
For Marklin HO fans, 36433 is a new Ludmilla Class 232 Heavy Diesel locomotive with an all-new WATER-based peizo smoke/exhaust system. It seems to use a vaporizer similar to 'vape' devices to produce a realistic multi-stage exhaust effect. This loco is an MHI Exclusive item so will be limited and will likely sell-out fast - order yours now!
Trix has a spectacular looking ERA III Rheingold E10 Loco and Car Set for Minitrix N scale fans. This set matches the train as it ran in 1962 with a 'temporary' E10 electric locomotive and the beautiful blue/creme paint scheme (both loco and cars are limited MHI Exclusiv program items). The loco is considered temporary as it is a 'regular' E10 which was used while the more distinctive streamlined E10.12 was being built. Also in N scale is a classic V100 in era III livery with full sound and an era III E41 electric locomotive (new tooling!), also with full sound.
