ARNOLD (N)


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]

AUHAGEN (N, TT, HO)


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:

N   14478 Corner house “Ringstrasse 1”. 4-storey town house with 5th floor in the Mansard roof.

BRAWA (O/HO/TT/N)

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-of-the-line versions, for both AC and DC operation, is marked Digital EXTRA+ and provides for full digital operation with sound. Confused? So am I!

Nothing Swiss in O scale.

BUSCH


HO   1180  Kit for a small ski-jump. The construction is of wood with a green mat for summer usage. The kit includes steps to access the start position, and a viewing tower.

Although German in origin, the Busch “Buschheide” series of buildings offers some buildings that may be suitable for a small Swiss town. The series started last year and there are additions this year. They are not listed individually, but there are photographs. [Photo 35, Photo 36, Photo 37, Photo 38]

For those that have fallen in love with the Busch HOf industrial railway models, Busch have responded to appeals and made a steam loco. It is a Decauville Type 3 0-4-0T and comes in black with either black or red frames. A small petrol-engined tractor is also announced. It is unpowered, but can be pushed by another new item – a motorised goods van. Again, there are photographs. [Photo 39, Photo 40, Photo 41]

EISENBAHN KURIER

FALLER (Z, N, TT, HO)


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]

However, there are some Swiss-outline buildings:

HO   120245 'Langwies' goods shed. Laser-cut wood walls. 59,99€ (10/16) [Photo 46]

HO   120209 Wood-built pedestrian bridge with tiled roof. Stone abutments. Wood parts are laser-cut. 27,99€ (08/16) [Photo 47]

HO   130558 Old farmhouse. (Not specifically Swiss.) 59,99€ (08/16) [Photo 48]

N   212121 'Langwies' station. Laser-cut wood construction. 39,99€ (10/16)

N   222574 Same as the HO 120209, but in N-scale. Laser-cut wood parts. 17,99€ (06/16)

N   232338 Mountain rescue chalet. 32,99€ (05/16)

PULLMAN (HO, I, Iim)


I am still unsure whether Pullman is a part of ESU, or merely distributed through them. Whatever the situation, I have had to add HO and I to the scales the firm make as, over the past year, they have introduced a German coach in a number of variations in HO. I can confirm they are very good, and also reasonably-priced (60€ for a bogie coach). So far, the gauge I range is limited to a single locomotive, albeit in a number of variations (the NOHAB Co-Co diesel). However, the IIm range remains just the RhB railcar and ballast hoppers, albeit with additional variants.
