Klub Baat SŽ Baat

The passenger car of type Baat is a typical two axle passenger car which existed on the railways of former Yugoslavia in numerous variants. They were typicaly present in trains for local railways, eg. Ljubljana-Kamnik, Celje-Rogatec, Jesenice-Nova Gorica etc. In the begining they had wooden benches that they were later upholstered. Since they were far from comfortable they got nickname “texas cars” but they were reliable. The heating at the start was using the steam and later also electric. After the disentegration of Yugoslavia they were in use by Slovenian state railways (SŽ) until the begining of 1990’s where they soon were replaced with other more modern passenger cars as well as DMU’s. The latest were used on railway Jesenice-Nova Gorica, painted in withe with rainbow stripes, so called canaries.

The model represents a 15,50 m long variant from early 1990’s with upholstered benches with compartments for smokers and nonsmokers, aisle along the car and a toilet. The model is made from ABS plastic, metal wheels, details under the frame, interior and NEM cinematics. Model is painted and prints are made using fine tampo print. Everything is made in Slovenia and the model shall be available in spring 2020, estimated price should be 67 EUR.

You can order the model directly at Klub Baat as well with us.

ViTrains DMU JŽ/SŽ 813 series 0

In 1970 ŽG Ljubljana, an entity of Yugoslav state railways (JŽ) and forerunner of todays Slovenian state railways (SŽ) ordered slighty less than 50 diesel hydraulic units at italian company FIAT ferroviaria. The type ordered was Aln 668-1800, a variant of well known and proved  DMU Aln 668 in Italy. Theseunits came to Yugoslavia together in combiniation of powered unit (Aln 668) and trailer (Ln 882). They were to replace the old railbuses (Uerdinger VT85) and even more older 5 diesel units that remained after WW2 in nowadays Slovenia, the Aln 556. The new units were immideately used in local railroads in Slovenia (Ljubljana-Kamnik, Celje-Velenje, Maribor-Dravograd, Ljubljana-Novo Mesto, Jesenice-Nova Gorica itd) as well as on some other railroads in the vicinity. They could be seen in Spielfeld (Austria), Trieste (Italy) as well as in Zagreb and Pula (nowadays Croatia). After the breakup of Yugoslavia Slovenian state railways updated the majority of these DMU’s and 3 were sold to Bosnia and Herzegovina, to ŽRS. The modernized DMU’s have larger cabin for the engineers, which were later also climatized and a bit updated passenger cabin but the basis is still the same. The modernized DMU’s are now marked as SŽ class 813, series 100. There are some original DMU’s but soon they shall be replaced with upcoming Stadler Flirts 3.

The italian company ViTrains prepared model of Aln 668 in scale H0 years ago but on the contrary to company Rivarossi (Hornby), they started releasing the models from version Aln668-1000. So few years ago they released version of series -1800 which is identical to our model JŽ/SŽ 813. We talked on fair Hobby Model Expo 2019 in Novegro and they mentioned they would like to prepare also JŽ/SŽ version and they expressed readiness to prepare the trailer as well. On toyfair in Nürnberg 2020 they announced our version together with the correct trailer Ln 882. The models should arrive in spring 2022, the price for analog version is 315 EUR, for the version with digital sound decoder 415 EUR. We already accept the preorders for these models.


B-Models Innofreight vagoni

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!

Goša tank cars’ came at the Yugoslavian railways in the 1960’s as type Uahrrs-z which were later recoded as types Zas and Zaes. Many of these cars are still in use in all republics of former Yugoslavia. A lot of these cars were exported to Czechoslovakia so You can see them in nowadays Czech and Slovak republic. 

At start AlbertModell plans to prepare models for Czech and Slovakian market but the intention is also to release models of cars which are in nowadays use in republics of former Yugoslavia: Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia (ŽFBH) and of course also models from JŽ period in epoch IV.
