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.
