The East Coast Large Scale Train Show (ECLSTS) in York (PA, USA) has ended, and USA Trains fan Shawn has uploaded an album with pictures of the USA Trains booth on Flickr. Shawn will upload albums from other vendors as well, I will update this post once they become available on his Flickr page.

I have received a review sample of the new BR 24 steam locomotive from PIKO, so here’s a quick preview of this big steam engine: ‘PREVIEW: PIKO G 37220 BR 24‘
Full review following in a few days.
To celebrate their 15th Anniversary, Train Line has some special offers.

In their latest newsletter, Dutch shop ‘Big Train World‘ reports the arrival of the first BR 24 steam locomotives from PIKO. A member of the Dutch ‘Grootspoorforum‘ confirms the arrival of his BR 24 as well. It may take a while for the model to be available worldwide.
The traditional ‘Roll Out’ (press) event from PIKO is scheduled for 30 March (source).
The following two items are now discontinued by PIKO. They could still be available at your local shop, so if you are interested in buying one you should definitely hurry.

38240 Steam Locomotive with Tender “Camelback” RDG (Digital with Sound and Smoke)
