HSB T3 from Train Line?

Train Line hasn’t officially announced any new items for 2017 on their website yet, but FGB-Berlin added a new model in their webshop.

The class T3 railcar of the Harz narrow gauge railway (HSB) is a new announcement, with a scheduled delivery in 2018. The T3 will be available in an analogue (#2030100) version and a version with DCC and sound (#2030102).

No pricing info is available yet.

While this new announcement is great, Train Line still has quite a backlog of unreleased items. The HSB T1 railcar, the RhB Ge 4/6, the RhB freight cars and the HSB “rollbocke” to name a few. So with a bit of luck, we might see the HSB T3 railcar in 2020…

Revised Train Line Harz Mallet

Train Line announced a revision of their Harz “Mallet” steam locomotive. The Mallet has been improved in several areas with more detail on the boiler and on the water tanks. The photos below show a comparison between the old (top) and new (bottom) version of the loco from both sides.

The new Mallet is included in Train Line’s new HSB sets. The #2011401 set includes the 99 5901-6 Mallet (analogue) and two 7-window passenger cars in a “Hasseröder” paint scheme. The #2011412 set is the same, but the Mallet is equipped with a digital ZIMO sound decoder.

I’m not sure if the new version of the Mallet will also be available separately, Train Line does not mention anything about it on their website.
