Well Keith,

Let me be the first to comment on that ;-)

Nice that green Ge 6/6 II, if you don’t already have a Kiss one and are happy with it.

I’m missing the appropiate green passenger cars and some freight cars from the same era.
For example some Uce cement cars with different car numbers.
Initially the Ge 6/6 II was designed for cement transports for the construction of water power stations.

Maybe MLGB is testing the waters for more green RhB items.

Not very creative is the Za 8135 tankcar.
There is already a similar car with the same car number.
A little more research could do the trick.

... nothing for me either...was hoping for a G4/5 in green or maybe a plain 6/6 II with updated headlights...a Fac/Fad with a new number but no...nothing this year.

So virtually every other loco has some stock released for it but not the 6/6?
I quickly turned past the HSB diesel ;)
Nice to see the green 6/6 but what a strange choice when a plain red would complement recent releases.

Wow. It's as if LGB had to give actually thought to what models/molds to reuse/repaint... but then said "now, let's make sure we pick the least desirable way to paint/letter these things!" #-o

They have it refined to a fine art.
Now, if they could apply the same art to selecting new models? Who knows what would happen.

Nothing for me as well this year, thank heavens! I was sure you’d go for the green 6/6 II HJ.

No way!
I still have to fix the one from KISS, waiting for the weather to warm up. Currently a cool 6º C in the garage/workshop with the heater running. 8-| 8-|
I figure that not buying anything from MLGB is at least good for 10kg of filament and 2kg of resin. :ymdevil: :ymdevil:

I don’t want to start a rumor, but I read that the forthcoming green LGB Ge 6/6 II should have a revised sound file vs. the recently released red version. Let’s wait and see (or hear). I do find it interesting that in the published instructions for the green version, which happen to already be available for download on LGB’s website, the sounds and functions are identical to the red version. But, take note, there are 5 additional pages in the new manual about the default CV settings for DCC operation. Velly velly intresting!!!

Apres ski car "prototypical interior"....uh, right.....you put a photo of the real one underneath and you can see there's nothing prototypical about the interior.
North Americans aren't that used to gaslighting.....yet....
