All FLEISCHMANN 2019 New Items     All ROCO 2019 New Items

The following is PART II (see Part I here) of our brief Model Railway summary of the annual Nuremberg Spielwarmesse or Toyfair held each year in the famous toy city, Nuremberg, Germany. Here manufacturers from all over Europe and Asia gather to display their new product offerings and invite dealers from all over the world to come view and of course place their orders. The event helps factories get an indication of what will be popular and what will not be so popular thereby, giving them the opportunity to adjust their production quotas. This in turn, gives dealers first hand information on assisting them with their Toyfair Orders. In the Model Train Pavilion, many of the manufacturers come with special surprises for dealers, (New Items not announced on the Internet), usually very limited and available only to those in attendance.

Oops!A welcome change on this year’s Fleischmann/Roco presentation was that each company had a beautiful operating layout. A N Scale Piccolo layout from Fleischmann and a HO layout from Roco. As most will have gathered, there was a glaring loss to the Fleischmann New Items line-up for this year and that is, no HO items we’re presented. This is the strategy of the parent company, Modelleisenbahn München Gmbh. where the continual decline in Fleischmann HO Sales led to the decision to move the HO product line into the Roco HO program and alow Fleischmann to focus in N Scale. No different when Roco abandoned a separate Roco program for their N Scale and moved what they had into the Fleischmann N Scale program. Many Fleischmann followers will recognize former Fleischmann products under the Roco HO brand now. Management assured us that the Fleischmann track program, etc. will remain, at least for the time being. As for the balance of models in Fleischmann packaging, these will continue to sell under Fleischmann until stock supplies are finally exhausted. So, lets begin with the Fleischmann N Scale new items for this year.

As always, please remember that Roco and Fleischmann produce most items in single production runs only. This means that many popular items will be sold out at the factory by the time they are shipped to retailers and we may not be able to special order them at a later date. We try to bring extra stock in for the top selling items but with the size of the Roco & Fleischmann new items program we cannot order extra store stock for every new item. If there is a product you have your heart set on, please pre-order soon, not only to guarantee availability but also to ensure you get the lowest price.
