NÜREMBERG TOY FAIR -
From a personal perspective, I found the fair more interesting this year. The number of new models (that is, really new models, rather than a new livery or number) is still small, but what they are was better. I stress, though, that this is a personal opinion. It will be a good year for Swiss HO modellers as, at long last, there is to be a model of the SBB Ae 4/7 again, from Piko (the last one was from Liliput in its Vienna days, a very long time ago, then reissued by Herpa during its short-
Also, it seems to be the year of the BLS Ae 6/8. For a number of years, Roco has made the later version of the second series of loco (205 – 208) with a single pantograph, and I have always thought that Roco missed a trick by not expanding the theme. Now, ACME are doing the first series (201 – 204, Breda-
The problems created by the collapse of Modern Gala in China are slowly being resolved. Quite a lot of manufacturers were having their models made by Modern Gala, and there has been a lot of difficulty in retrieval of the moulds. However, it is getting a bit better, it seems, and production is getting back to whatever passes for normal in this hobby of ours.
There is a strange disparity between the manufacturers from different countries. Those from Italy, Germany and Holland seem to be keeping their heads above water, with a reasonable spread of really new models (rather than renumberings or different liveries). Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the Hornby group, where the number of new models was extremely small across their European ranges (Rivarossi, Arnold, Jouef, Electrotren). Last year, there was a new German steam loco announced in the Rivarossi range; this year it has completely disappeared. The rather short response to what had happened to it was “it's been put back”. New items are also very thin on the ground from Liliput, part of the Bachmann group, a concern which has not been affected by the Modern Gala situation.
All this is something of a generalisation, of course. For instance, in the past, it was not unusual for every new item from Märklin, Trix and LGB to be on display. This year, only about half were. The Roco/Fleischmann stand was, again, very thin on the ground as far as models were concerned, the main occupation being to push the technological gadgetry. The scenery manufacturers are still pretty good at showing every new item, be they buildings, accessories or scenic items. Faller, in particular, stands out as seeming to consider it a matter of pride that every new building in every scale is shown, almost always complete.
The journey to and from Germany was not without interest. On the way out, there was a delay on the high-
By the way, last year I wrote of a German locomotive that survived WWII but had not been made by the trade. I was particularly frustrated by this, as I like the loco and had seen it in action at the end of its lifetime in the early '70's. Well, it's rather like waiting for a bus. Nothing for ages, then two turn up at once! Both Fleischmann and Piko have announced it, the class E52 2'B-
Finally, I must tell you all that this will be the last Nuremberg Toy Fair report from me. There are several reasons for my decision. First, I am not getting any younger and, although dragging a wheeled bag full of paper around is reasonably okay (but NOT on Nuremberg cobbles), lifting it on and off trains is not. Secondly, although a lot of the report is written before I even leave, there is a fair amount of information to be gleaned actually at the Fair. Together with the many photographs I take (just over 350 this year), this means a vast amount of work on my return which, with my other commitments, is becoming difficult to manage. Third, it's becoming more expensive. I have always financed the trip from my own pocket and, even with my retired railwaymans discount, fares have shot up, partly because of the rate of exchange, partly because of DB price increases. Added to this is the cost of accommodation and meals. I have been visiting the Toy Fair since 1972, and think that 40-
As usual, and for the last time, I apologise for anything I have missed, but hope you will appreciate what there is.
There has also been a set of panoramic coaches in a matching livery but, unfortunately, these are all sold out. [Photo 2]

The theme from Busch this year is very much a religious one. Although not specifically Swiss, they reminded me of several Swiss locations, notably in Airolo and Ausserberg. As well as the items listed, there are other similarly-

The Feldbahn range has a new steam loco, based on the museum loco 'Dimitrias', built by Decauville and now in the Feldbahn museum in Frankfurt. Seeing this in the Busch brochure, I asked the friend with whom we stay for a few days after the Toy Fair why he had never taken me there, as he lives not too far away. We rectified that omission over the weekend, so I saw the prototype of the Busch model. It is a little different, as the Busch mechanism does not allow complete accuracy, but it's close. Instead of trying to call the model 'Dimitrias' (which is in Greek script on the real thing), Busch have appropriately named their loco 'Frankfurt'.
