Capitole train : Minitrix or Mikadotrain/REE
After the very pretty Minitrix BB 9200 in Capitole version, Mikadotrain/REE proposes their handsome UIC coaches in Capitole livery. As you can see on the picture, there is no trouble to form a Capitole train of Mikadotrain/REE coaches with the Minitrix BB 9200. Of course, the red of the coaches is a bit darker, and may be more conform, but this slight difference was possible in reality. The BB 9200 won't have any difficulty to pull a train of 8 to 10 Mikadotrain/REE coaches, not forgetting the Vru restaurant coach (Artrain). Those who prefer to have an identical tone and the possibility to illuminate their coaches will have to wait for the Minitrix two sets of coaches which must be available before the end of July.More

PIKO BB 66000 : the comeback

It is a legendary model of SNCF N gauge that is again available. The BB 66000 taht has been proposed by PIKO in numerous versions contributed widely to the revival of N gauge in France in 2009. After several requests towards the PIKO importer, a new version of this omnipresent locomotive on the French tracks from 60's to modern era. This BB 66028 in king blue livery with yellow stripes corresponds to the era IIId (from 1962 to around 1968). In comparison to the previous models with the same livery, It innovates through a beautiful printing and attractive red plates. Otherwise, the features of the model are unchanged : metal bonnets, fine metal handrails, two drinving boggies,... Only its price has really changed by being on trend. if this model is successful, we can expect in next future a diesel blue version with plates with a longer period of use (era IIId and IV) and a really new version in simplified diesel blue livery with Casquette logo as previously announced by PIKO but never realized.
