A big box arrived at G Scale News HQ… The V 20 diesel engine (Art.No. 37550) from PIKO has arrived!
I’ll be taking a closer look at this German ‘Deutsche Bundesbahn’ diesel switcher in the coming days, so expect a full review early next week. I’ll publish a full disassembly guide and (sound)decoder installation guide later next week, and I’ll also fit a Massoth power buffer if I think it’s beneficial for this loco. Stay tuned…
POLA G’s latest 2015 new items delivery is the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) ‘Guarda’ station (Art.No. 330899), which is now available for € 199,99 (MSRP).
