Those who have reserved the model will receive soon an email abour their reservation. The others can still reserve by email this unreleased steam engine in limited edition of 250 pieces at the reservation price of 219 € in analog version and 249 € in digital version (please previse the chosen version).

The 1500 V put in the spotlight in 2018
11/14/2017
With the new Midi and Etat BB locomotives confirmed by HOBBY 66 on beginning 2018 and the new complete range of 1500 V poles ananounced by JPPennati on end 2017, the 1500 V inherited the old French companies will be put in the spotlight in 2018. The pictures of the BB painted prototypes look promising and the traction capacity has been improved in comparison to the previous BB 8100 from the same producer. You can find all the proposed models in our "Engines to reserve" category. The new 1500 V brace poles are as fine as the previous ones in photoetched brass but, thanks to a new matter, they will be sold partially assembled with an amazing flexibility. Consequently the complete range is planned in order to fit a layout (single pole, stretching pole, starting pole, poles for gantry,...). What about Midi ribs ?More

Trains 160 : Le modélisme ferroviaire à l'échelle N

Passionné de modélisme ferroviaire depuis plus de 20 ans, je suis convaincu du potentiel de l'échelle N, notamment en France. Son développement ne sera possible que si les fabricants proposent régulièrement des nouveaux modèles de qualité, correspondant aux différentes époques pratiquées.

C'est la raison pour laquelle j'ai décidé de créer TRAINS160, société spécialisée dans le commerce en ligne de modélisme ferroviare français à l'échelle N. Outre la distribution des matériels Fulgurex, Hobbytrain, Kato, Lematec, L.S.Models, Mabar, Piko et Startrain, et des produits de décor ABE, ARA, GPP, NLook, Pégase et SMD, je souhaite vous proposer en exclusivité, dès la fin 2009, une nouvelle voiture typiquement française au 1/160ème. Si le succès est au rendez-vous, ce n'est pas moins de 2 nouveaux modèles qui vous seront proposés chaque année à compter de 2010.

Je vous remercie de votre attention et de votre confiance.

Summer new products
07/19/2017
No break for new SNCF N scale products during the summer period : after the very pretty Mikadotrain/REE short DEV A0 cars (19 still available numbers), Minitrix has at last delivered the CC 6520 locomotive in the original Arzens concrete grey and livery with Capitole signs. After the BB 67498, it is the second SNCF locomotive proposed this year by Minitrix but the two sets of Grand Confort cars planned with the CC 6520 keep waiting. Note also the very interesting sales on some Fleischmann SNCF items : BB 22000 in Fret and phantom liveries, pocket wagon with CNC container and one "thunder box" car. Note finally that there are still a few pieces of the Mikadotrain/REE X 2800 railcars in cream livery with cream roof and red roof but it is soon the end.More
Sudexpress Euro 4000
05/6/2017
Among the new products that have been shown on the successfull Trainsmania exhibition, the Euro 4000 loco by Sudexpress were very expected. The new model which is deliverable in two analog versions with NEM 651 digital interface, one VFLI version with the number 4017 and one Europorte version with the number E4004, is impressive by its length, its high level of details and its weight, guarantee of good motor function. However, there must have been a slip in the plant for the two front ends are fitted with the different pipes and the original coupling, what doesn't allow to fit a NEM coupler which wasn't anyway delivered in the box. The couplers bags have been since send apart by the importer but it doesn't look good for an engine that is able in theory to pull a heavy train of freight wagons. It is the same for the instructions sheet undelivered in the box and that must be downloaded on the French importer REE Modèles website. Don't follow the instructions sheet if you need to remove the body in order to fit a decoder because more you spread the body sides, more the body is blocked by the both ends. You just have to spread lightly the sides with your nail and the chassis must go down by itself at risk of brakeages of chassis and sandboxes ducts or footsteps fitted on the boggies. A little regret for a model sold more then € 200, the handrails are engraved and painted on the body but not added as a metal part as done on other models. The two wipers must be fitted by the owner but once fitted, you must not put the loco in its box (QED).More
