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…
ESU announced the type BEX panorama cars for the Swiss narrow gauge RhB railway as a new item for 2017. The panorama cars will be available in twelve different versions in their “Pullman” range.

The panorama cars are probably based on the models earlier available from KISS Modellbahnen.

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.
