Furthermore, this fall promises a multitude of new models for G-gauge fans of North American railroads. It starts with small and cute. Not just one, but three versions of a gang car from the north of the USA bring a bit of extra life to backyard layouts (turn to page 6 and 12). Specialist retailers now offer a large number of bulky new freight cars in two color options for the powerful, American staple SD40 diesel locomotive (turn to page 6 and 42). A brand new porter loco, which comes with an mfx/DCC decoder and matching sugar cane freight car, brings a touch of Hawaii to layouts.
And now – last but not least – a big thanks to everyone who entered our layout competition ‘Best Garden Railroad 2016’. We were overwhelmed by the quality of the entries. It was a very tough job to pick the winners. But here they are (turn to page 14). Enjoy reading the latest issue of LGB Depesche!
