Re: Models coming

I was recently told by Hong Kong hobby shops' owners that Chinese manufacturers changed their distribution policy and are prioritizing their internet shops. They are now asking street retailers to order a minimum quantity of 100 or so for a single model and are offering a very limited price discount...

Re: KD60 dump cars - used on ballast trains?

Do you actually mean KF60 dump cars?

I confirm that in France ballast is dumped using mainly hoppers with a central dump or less often right and left lateral dump. A confusion may come from a rubble train used to brace the railway embankment.

Re: Attaching or posting photos, how to do so?

This problem is still pending after more than one year.
I never got any answer from the admin to my messages about this issue.
It sounds like this forum was no more administrated and is running freewheel. I hope to be wrong.

I am a customer of one of the main French e-retailer of model trains "Pierre et Dominique" and it announced today a massive sale of new olf stock Chinese models from Bachmann China.
