On Toyfair in Nürnberg at the end of January 2020 the Belgian company B-Models announced two models of Innofreight cars that one can regulary see on railways of Slovenia and Austria. They announced models (cat. no. 90.217) 90.217 RailCargo Austria Voest Alpine and (cat. no. 90.218) SŽ Cargo Voest Alpine. These cars are regularly in same consist carring iron ore from Port of Koper to ironworks in Linz via Jesenice or Šentilj (Spielfeld).
The idea behind Innofreight cars is to use standard car for transporting containers and put on any container. So if the company has different types of containers, they can use same care for different containers. The models have two permanently coupled cars loaded with one container per car. The estimated price of each model is 127,95 EUR and we already accept preorders. Based on the experience from the year 2019 these preorders are filled quite quickly so hurry!
Together with Danube Train Models from Belgrade (DTM) we are announcing release of set consisting of two JŽ flat cars of type Slmmp-tz in H0 scale. These are special cars for heavy cargo and transporting tanks. In Yugoslavia there were some versions of such cars, these are 4 axle cars of type Köln. These cars appeared in 1940 when german army ordered freight cars for transporting tanks on the fronts in 2nd world war. After the war many of these cars remained in Yugoslavia and they were used for the same purposes along with transporting heavy cargo. The models of these cars will be made by the company Artitec in a set consisting of 2 cars. The cars should be from register of ŽG Ljubljana (nowadays Slovenia) and the revision is set to the end of 1980’s. The price is not defined but it should be around 80 EUR.
