The first pictures of the V 100 diesel locomotive from LGB (Art.No. 20121) have appeared on the German ‘Gartenbahn Spur G’ forum.
In their latest newsletter, Massoth announces several new deliveries and current projects. With the delivery of the Franzburg steam locomotive from LGB just around the corner, Massoth will deliver a matching sound decoder just in time. The decoder (Art.No. 8215018 eMOTION XLS-M1 Franzburg) can be placed directly on to the LGB/Märklin interface.
Also available in the coming month is an XLS sound decoder (Art.No. 8210540) for the PIKO G BR 24 steam engine.
Massoth is also working on the DiMAX Multi Receiver for the XpressNet and LocoNet bus protocols. This receiver allows the DiMAX Navigator to be used with DCC systems using the XpressNet or LocoNet protocol. The receiver unit (Art.No. 8130001) will come with XpressNet support on delivery, LocoNet support will be added in a later firmware update.
