RhB ABe 4/4 III & Tm 2/2 from KISS Modellbahn Service

KISS Modellbahn Service announced two new items for 2017 (PDF): the RhB type ABe 4/4 III electric locomotive, and the Tm 2/2 111-118 diesel switcher. Both 1:22,5 scale models will be produced in a mixed plastic and brass construction. The locomotives will be available in multiple versions and road numbers. Prices for the ABe 4/4 III start at € 1.399,00, the Tm 2/2 costs € 695,00.

More information about both models:

KISS Modellbahn Service (KMS) is a company by Günther Kiss, that has been doing special paint schemes and repaints on request for many years. They didn’t produce any models themselves, the ABe 4/4 III and Tm 2/2 are their first rolling stock productions.

KISS Modellbahnen (owned by Stefan Kiss, son of Günther Kiss) on the contrary, has been making high-end locomotives and rolling stock for 0, 1 and 2m scale for many years. In the past, KISS Modellbahnen offered a variety of models constructed in both brass and plastic. A few years ago, KISS Modellbahnen dropped their line of plastic models and shifted their focus to models in full brass construction.

ESU then took over KISS Modellbahnen’s unreleased ABe 4/4 II, which was designed for a mixture of plastic and brass construction. ESU released the locomotive under the “Pullman” brand in 2015, with new versions coming out in 2016 as well.

With KMS now announcing the ABe 4/4 III and Tm 2/2 in a mixed brass / plastic construction, it’s unclear whether they will be making these models themselves or if they maybe are cooperating with ESU.
