I hope NOT... :)
In the meanwhile I get “pre-order” on Hornby/Arnold at £224.....
I think at Hornby/Arnold factory and marketing branch they were watching to the  Swiss market especially ( as many other)..
May be a “new start/era”..?......

I don't recognise some of these items as having been mooted before, not even at Nürnberg, although Arnold do keep changing what they announce to something different later, like the wagons we were discussing before.

Irritatingly no ETR610 in plain SBB livery which most of the Swiss owned ones have run in for their lives so far

Also irritating in the collection is yet another tank wagon with 'Algeco' branding. Manufacturers have stuck to this for years, but AFAIK Algeco has not been in the railway transport business for some years now.

Algeco was formally taken over by VTG in 2004. The companies had worked closely together previously, and the formal change followed shortly after Simotra France becoming part of VTG in 2002. The Algeco branding continued for several years after that and some tank wagons still carried it into 2010 at least, due to the leasing structures in place. I had a brief period of managerial responsibility shortly before the time of the formal takeover.
