It's official, the fall new items from Trix and Märklin for 2016. I was really looking forward to seeing what would be available this time. I was hoping for some interesting era V and VI stuff. [More]
For more than 50 years the class MY has played a big part in the Danish railway history as well as the history of other European railways. To commemorate the 50 year anniversary of the class MY, Trix released a completely newly tooled H0 model of the locomotive. To my knowledge this is the first time the Nohab is available as a Trix model in H0. This is my review of a model that is both heavy, good looking and runs like charm. [More]
I like to build, rebuild, break down, set up, build again, and again and rebuild and so it goes. In other words: I need a track system that is easy to use and easy to set up and take down. The Trix C track stands out when it comes to track systems with built-in track bed. The Trix C track is a derivative of the Märklin C tack, but without the center rail. Trix C track is built for 2-rail operation and comes complete with support for RP25 wheel sets and powered frogs. [More]
Updated: I have added additional images of the turnouts.
Today Märklin released the Summer New Items for 2016 along with the Trix Summer New Items. Both ranges have something that will definitely interest a vast majority of model railway enthusiasts. Personally, being an Era V and VI fan, I think the Märklin New Items has the most to offer, where as the Trix range is more older Eras. At least in H0. [More]
