It is probably a waste of time to write about new European releases or announcemetns¬* in an US forum. LGB does no longer excist, other makers never were too popular so far. The times are A-Changing.
Roundhouse offers a single Fairlie for 45mm track. Have a look at the homepage.¬*
A new kid in the block might be these makers: http://www.locolines.net/gauge_1.htm
¬* Looks very promising.¬*
The many new German, Swiss ¬*or Austrian new releases were mentioned here. Nobody from abroad bothered asking for it at the European makers.
