Train Line has announced they will open a second store. The new store will be in cooperation with Dietz Elektronik, located in Hofen (Germany).
Dietz will offer the complete product range from Train Line, and will perform installation of Dietz electronics on request.
The new shop will be opened on 10 November 2016, with an eleven percent discount on all Train Line products on 10 and 11 November.
Train Line’s first shop was opened in Wernigerode (Germany) near the popular HSB narrow gauge railway in 2013.
Dietz announced a new power buffer in two versions with either 6 or 7 ‘Goldcaps’.
- SPK-GC-6 Power buffer 6 Goldcaps (58 x 22 x 11 mm) – MSRP € 59,00
- SPK-GC-7 Power buffer 7 Goldcaps (66 x 22 x 11 mm) – MSRP € 65,00
The SPK-GC-6 is intended for ‘normal’ use, the SPK-GC-7 is an extra powerful buffer intended for power-hungry locomotives that for example have sound and a pulsed smoker installed.
Both power buffers charge automatically, and don’t need to be disconnected while programming the loco. Connecting to a ‘BufferControl’ terminal on the decoder is not necessary.
The power buffers are now available.
Dietz expanded their decoder sound library with the following sound projects:
- Harz 99 5906 ‘Mallet’ steam locomotive
- Saxon I K steam locomotive
- American C-16 steam locomotive
- RhB Ge 4/4 II electric locomotive
- RhB ‘Allegra’ railcar
- universal tram sound (historic)
- universal tram sound (modern)
With the delivery of the V 20 diesel locomotive from PIKO in July, Dietz now offers a matching sound project for their ‘micro’, ‘X-clusive’ and ‘Profi’ sound decoders. Link: Dietz
Talking about the V 20… I will receive one from PIKO soon, so you can expect a review of the model here on G Scale News.
