For me there is little wrong with the Minitrix 144. An old fashioned model portraying and old fashioned loco still works IMHO, why pay the high price of todays' new models when the Minitrix 144s are quite easy to come by.

Enjoyed chasing, photting and riding behind the real thing back in the early 1980s in Bavaria here is a shot of mine circe 1984 at Nürnberg - albeit this is a 145:

Come to think of it I've actually been hauled by one in 2003, I suspect E44-044, I should have some photos somewhere.

Hmm, maybe not, unless they're on an old hard disk.

However it was definitely E44-044, this is the train:

I've a funny feeling the chap on the right-hand platform in the second picture might even be myself  :goggleeyes:

Probably not, at least if it was I wasn't taking any photos (edit: definitely wasn't, found a picture of myself that day wearing different clothes).

Found a couple though, not the best quality but this was 2003 and my camera wasn't the best.
