Luckily the preponderance of 1st class 'A9' vehicles in the Arnold announcement   is not so bad, as all the A9 coaches were latterly declassified into 'B9' (second class)

And another point - what model are they expecting pwople to use to haul them - where is the retooled 'Jacquemin' electric (last issued by Arnold over 10 years ago) that is desparately needed?



The move from Lima Arnold to Hornby Arnold saw the loss of the SNCF Jaquemins and the Vtu Corail coaches. Piko mopped up the Corail market and Minitrix will do the same (eventually?) with Jaquemins. In my view these were two of the most authentic SNCF models in the Arnold range. I suspect the tooling never made it into Hornby Arnold’s stock.

Hello all

Oh wow!  E656!!  I have long wondered why there are so few Italian outline models available... definitely in for one of these.

All I also need is E626, E636 and maybe some of the ALe 790 units for that long-planned layout of Taormina station in the 1970s/80s...

PB Model has recently done an E636 which looks to be a good 3D design:
