It’s that time of year when all the major manufacturers start releasing the details of the new products they will be bringing to market.
I spend an imaginary fortune looking through all the catalogues thinking about what I’d like to buy but there is one product from Lemke Hobbytrain that I really might have to purchase and that’s the BR 481 of the Berlin S-Bahn.
The BR 481 is ‘the’ train of the Berlin S-Bahn, the high-frequency transportation system in and around the city of Berlin.
You can find out more about the Lemke Hobbytrain BR 481 on their website here. (The page is in German so I use the Chrome auto translate function).
It’s worth noting that the BR 481 has been on Lemke Hobbytrain’s new items list for what must be a couple of years now but it has never actually materialised, so perhaps it’s promising to see it’s now being shown as a quarter 1 release in the Lemke new releases page. We’ll see.
In any case it’s a must have train for any model of the Berlin Stadtbahn (Berlin City Railway) which is something I’ve wanted to do for some time now. More on that in another post but here’s a taster of the Berlin Stadtbahn by way of a Railpictures.net gallery I put together.
