At the end of 2015, the small German company “Kres” announced their entry in the G scale market with two small “GKR Type 1” draisines. They had been silent about the development and production status for a while now, but Dutch shop Grootspoor.com now confirms both draisines (#80000 yellow, #90000 blue) will be available in March 2017. The draisines cost € 249,95 each (MSRP).

Last month, Kres Modelle announced their entrance in the G scale market with two ‘GKR Type 1 Schienentrabi’ draisines. At the time of the announcement, Kres did not provide any pricing info. In a request via email, Kres told G Scale News they estimated the MSRP would be around 250 Euros.
In their latest newsletter, Grootspoor.com now confirms both draisines (#80000 yellow, #90000 blue) will cost € 249,95 each.
Asking about what we can expect for G scale in the future, Kres told me the announcement of future models depends on the success of these GKR’s. In any case, they will first focus on bringing smaller models to G scale.

The German company ‘Kres Modelle’ offers several model railroad items for the smaller scales. At the beginning of the month, Kres announced they will produce their first large scale items!
Kres will offer two ‘GKR Typ 1’ draisines in 1:22,5 scale in two colours. According to the new items leaflet, the draisines will only be produced if there is enough interest (and I assume, pre-orders).
