RhB Ge4/4III

For those who don't like advertising liveries...but may want their layout scenarios to be realistic.

As I mention in my CM article, RhB Ge4/4 III 644 'Savognin' the first model issue by Kato was in plain red during 1994 and 1995, then in 2011 and 2012.

648 which has been in advertising liveries since 1997, has been plain red during 2015.

It looks like Kato has realised that they have found a good gap in the market.
It would be interesting to know what percentage of sales go to tourists and what percentage to modellers.
Despite the odd scale - we benefit.

At a recent exhibition, a well known importer of continental goodies told me that Zentalbahn was in discussion with Bemo and Kato to produce the new Zentalbahn stock. Apparently Bemo produce the drawings in CAD for Hom and these are sold to Kato and downscaled to N.

The problem with the Zentralbahn is that the stock is not used by other railways, so model manufacturers can't market several different liveries/repaints so its not a very lucrative product. On the other hand Zentalbahn seems to be one of the few Swiss railways that has any grasp of merchandising. If the ZB cvers more of the upfront costs it might yet happen, lets hope so.

No, I can't see them on 1999 Japan, only on German shop sites for the hideous price of Euro 179

I have seen a reference to these locos as 'exclusive for Europe only'.

It is clearly a marketing tie-up with Noch, which is probably bad news for 'us ordinary folk' who have so far been able to obtain this stuff from Japan or Japanese import sources like Gaugemaster and TrainTrax

A clear admission that Europeans are snapping up the concept of Kato 9mm gauge RhB!
