NÜREMBURG TOY FAIR -
This year, I'm afraid, the Toy Fair has not provided very much in the way of completely new models. This is probably due to a combination of factors – the world financial situation; increased design and manufacturing costs; manufacturing difficulties in China; the list goes on and on.
There is another side of the story, however. The Manufacturers are running out of prototypes of which they can make models. The German market is probably the most saturated, at least in HO scale, and I can think of just one locomotive type that survived WWII left to model (amazingly, no-
The most well-
In discussions with friends during the Fair, there is a feeling that actual manufacture and assembly of models may well return to Europe, in particular the countries of the former Eastern bloc. This is already happening, with various companies having such facilities in Romania, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland. We shall have to wait and see where this leads – hopefully, better quality control and quicker delivery (realistically, probably higher prices).
The railway part of the Fair continues to shrink – one end of the railway hall (4A) was taken up by overflow from the adjacent hall. The 'small trader' area has grown, with several new occupants, but with several others dropping out altogether, or sharing a stand with a different firm. Getting round was not a problem – the aisles are wide and the number of attendees rarely caused any hold-
An interesting introduction by Auhagen is the town corner building that can be built at 75ᴼ, 90ᴼ or 105ᴼ. The 75ᴼ variant s built without any centre section on the corner, the others with one of two alternative inserts. Probably, with a little work, other angles could be contrived. The kit will be available for both N and HO scales.
I started to list all the variations of wagon + containers from KombiModell, but a full list would have taken up at least 2 pages. Suffice it to say that most of the models consist of a HUPAC wagon, either a T4 or T4.1, with either containers or swap-
My photography around the Fair was, as usual, hampered by having to take the photographs through glass, trying to avoid glare from the flash and reflections from other glass on the stand. I have to continually re-

In addition to all of this, there are various scenic accessories such as warning signs for electrical installations, departure advice boxes, station signs, lineside cable troughing, Integra balises, various level crossing barriers and other items too numerous to mention. All are very well moulded or etched, as appropriate.

Nothing new for Switzerland this year. In fact, even the Swiss Re 484 and coaches have disappeared from the catalogue – or so it seemed at first sight. In fact, the catalogue is missing pages 49 – 80, so the disappearance is explained. Certainly, the models were on display. [Photo 15, Photo 16, Photo 17]
Not specifically Swiss, but a very useful idea suitable for a lot of countries – a corner building that can be made with the angle of the faces at 75°, 90° or 105°. It will be available in both N and HO scales:

These locos will have detail differences depending on the prototype, digital sound, all light options for head and tail lights, cab lights and dashboard lights.
With the introduction of the TRAXX locos, Brawa have developed a range of 5 versions of each model. The base model is for analog DC only (does NOT have a digital interface). There is then a BASIC+ version for both AC and DC. As far as I can determine, these versions do not have an installed decoder, but do have a PluX22 digital interface and the light functions can be programmed for analog use. Just why the DC version is shown as Analog BASIC+ and the AC version as Digital BASIC+ is unclear. The top-

Mentioned last year as a possible foretaste of things to come was the HO monastery. It has, indeed come, albeit at a price. 399,99€ However, considering the size (604 x 517 x 374 mm) and the complexity, this is not quite the expensive kit that it seems at first glance. The prototype is the Bebenhausen monastery in the Schwabian Jura. I know it's not Swiss, but for anyone who enjoys building kits, this would make a fascinating challenge. (Delivery 05/16) There is also a set of Cistercian monks to populate the monastery. (9,49€) [Photo 42, Photo 43, Photo 44, Photo 45]

(Note: In the new items brochure, the DC model is shown as 482.018 and the AC model as 482.026. This is unusual, as the running number is normally the same – only the guts inside change. I asked Roco about this, eventually involving 4 of the staff. A definitive answer was not forthcoming, but the consensus was that the different number is an error.)
