Seems to me that brochure was meant to be published at the Nurnberg Toy Fair next week.

I see nothing at all on the various web sites that Train Line/Herforder Lokschuppen has on the net currently - those are actually quite a bit out of date.

Kiss offered one of these HSB locos in brass in the past - being able to buy one in plastic more reasonably priced is good.

My guess too KRS, someone jumped the gun perhaps, but they split the binding and posted away.

Pricing has been posted on GSC for the analog versions, approx EUR 600 and EUR 900.... No other technical details offered as of yet.

You haven't missed anything yet.

The long blurb about the engines is all about the prototype.

For the model all it says is that there are two running numbers for the steam loco and two versions of each one - an analog one with smoke and a DCC one with sound.
Same options for the new diesel.

Sounds very much like the options that Kiss always offers, I wonder if this is a joint effort, Train Line provides the funding and Kiss uses his know-how to develop and manufacture.


The difference in price between analog and DCC is pretty hefty - I wonder how they can justify that.

krs- I have not seen the prices for the DCC versions, how much higher are they?

With the IK from LGB, and these two, (while the mallet is interesting, the 0-6-0 is more practical for my needs) this could be an expensive year.... Maybe it is good that there is no word on the Lenz Typ-i from LGB....

First off all the link to the TrainLine45 2011 Product Catalog is on our website under Catalogs but for your convenience it also here:

TrainLine45 2011 New Products Catalog


As far as the other speculations, I can put them quickly to rest, since I am intimately involved with TL45 for obvious reasons

There is no correlation between Kiss and TrainLine45. TL45 doesn't need any know-how from Kiss because all the know-how exists with poeple form the industry that have done this for a long time. TL45's engines will be as good as LGB ever was, their rolling stock is impressive, utilizing high BASF plastics and stainless steel metal wheels. As far as prices are concerned, $300 difference for a good digital solution is absolutely justified. Of course you can short sell yourself, instead of a high quality speaker you use a Chinese $1 version, and there are low end DCC boards for $50 and low end sound for $80 on the market, but if want to do justice to the engine then an increase in the end-user price of $300 is justified. At the end it is like the old saying goes: "You get what you pay for".

You can order also the 38 page full product catalog as well. Will be delivered around March.

Fair enough.........

I just found it odd that Train Line tied sound to DCC the same way as Kiss does - as if the people running analogue don't want sound with their engines as well.

Thanks Axel.

Any word on when the steam locos might hit the US and approximate US pricing?

number on loco is reversed ...someone flip the image... I am sure the final product will be fine. This is an impressive line of trains, but it doesn't suite my American taste.
