Thanks John. :thumbsup: Cement wagons might get my attention, and other items I might have to sneak past the accountant. ;)

Thumbs up:

1) the modification to the plan for the reworked Ae6/6, with three version vice the originally promised two, notably a more recent Kantonslok as well as one for Era III

2) I'm also very pleased to see the Uacns cement wagons in up to date livery. This is just what the main manufacturers should be doing - producing models of shapes that are difficult to create by scratchbuild or modification. For too many years the N gauge manufacturers have persisted in issuing versions of the old fashioned twin silo 2-axle cement wagons - albeit some are still used.

3) The LKW Walter containers - although pricey as you need a a block trains worth of them

4) the rather nice CD passenger rake

Thumbs down:

1) another re-issue of a Frenchified German steam loco (SNCF 232TC - aka DRG 78). If Fleischmann had  channeled all the time, effort and money that they have spent over 40+ years producing Frenchified German locos to 'satisfy' the French market for an N gauge steam loco  into producing an SNCF 141R or other popular SNCF steam type they would have cornered the market!

2) ditto the Reichsbahn coaches - questionable how many more models of Frenchified DRG coaches the market can sustain.
