We near the end of 2016, so manufacturers are already busy preparing their new items for 2017. Of course, G Scale News will keep you updated on those new item announcements by publishing the news on the homepage. There will also be a comprehensive overview of new items on the special “New Items 2017” page. You can find it here: New Items 2017.
For many years I have been doing it like that, so there was quite a large archive of new item announcements. I had them on the site for a long time already, but the “New Items Archive” was in desperate need of an overhaul. So in the past few weeks, I have completely rebuilt the archive. The archive now consists of new item announcements from various manufacturers between 2006 and 2016. The older years are far from complete, as a lot of the original promotion materials aren’t available anymore.
For mobile users with a limited data plan, I have listed the file size of every PDF file in the archive. This way, you can decide if you want to view the file or not without wasting too much MB’s. Some of the resources are available in German only, so I have labelled those files as such using [DE] tags.
View the updated archive here: New Items Archive.
Note: several pages in the archive still have missing product descriptions, this is intentional. I need to update several product descriptions in the Product Databases as well. Once I’ve finished that, I can copy and paste the descriptions into the New Item Archive to avoid doing the same thing twice.
Enjoy your trip through G scale history!
