In our latest issue of Off the Tracks we report on this year's Nurnberg Toy Fair
We look at the latest products from Liliput, Bachmann, Marklin, Lux Modellbau, Kato, Faller, Hobby Train, LS Models and many more and pick our favourites!
Here's a couple of our reviews
In terms of motive power we saw and liked the new class 57/3, which will be available in weathered DRS livery; the class 47/0 which will be delivered in West Coast livery; the 3-car DMU in South West Trains livery; and passenger car MK1 TSO in Regional Trains livery.
For G-scale US outline fans we saw the "old timer' 2-60 setam engine "Eureka & Palisade". A highlight of these models were the two optical sensors, one in each cylinder, that allow you to adjust the timing of the count of the steam chuffs.
There were some very beautiful and well-built models on display from Kato, such as the SNCF TGV 10-car duplex Carmillion; the TGV Lyria; the Eurostar in the newer blue livery; and the stunning DB ICE4.
