13.4.2017 ~ Message from Euro Model Trains:
After an invitation of my dealer I went to WSUM and had some 2017 New Releases before my lens, next to some roldies and occasions which I found in the back of the shop:

On invitation of a Dutch forum member I did an elaborate photo-shooting in Amsterdam this afternoon. He handed me some 75 more or less exceptional and unique Märklin models like locomotives, sets, coaches and some metal cars. Even the very first edition of the Borsig Mallet Class 53 Kriegslokomotive (released 1979) with 'Drahtstange' was at hand:
Märklin 3102.1 (DRG 53 0001 Mallet)
Märklin 3095 ~ the very first edition of the Prussian Class 744-13, only produced in 1968 with road number DB 74 1070
Märklin 3094 ~ also the very first edition, released in 1970, still without Flügelrad, an uncut cabin and 6 spokes in the front runners
Märklin 3111 (bay. S 3/6 for NMBS/Entente)
Märklin 3098 ~ the very first P 8 in DB livery with Wannentender
Märklin 3419 ~ a classic class 50 during wartime in the Netherlands (NS 4930 viz. DRG 50 1680)
Märklin 26831 - Baureihe 86 mit Dampfschneeschleuder
Märklin 37963 ~ DB 96 019 as weathered edition
Märklin 28970 ~ "Hochzeitszug" Trix & Märklin 1997
Märklin 37203 ~ the former V 3201 in the set Urahnen, now in blue as V 120 001
Märklin SEH 800 viz. 3013.4 as Nr. 1101 of the "Nederlandsche Spoorwegen" (NS) with silver roof
Märklin SEH 800 viz. 3013.4 as Nr. 1101 der Nederlandsche Spoorwegen (NS), with a dark grey roof
Märklin 3037 in a very limited edition (prob. 1960) since the "Hauptschalter" on the roof was erroneously positioned near cabin 2
Märklin 3055 ~ the NS series 1200 with typical American features
Märklin 3324 ~ originally a French design, here in Dutch Era 4 livery with added "botsneus"
Märklin 3327 ~ NS 1135 in Era 3 livery
Small stop at my uncle's.... redoing Fleischmann's Class DB 03.
Pit stop at my dealer's where I shot the newly released DRG 58 1880 (Märklin 37587) and the 3rd released Bavarian coach (Märklin 41369).
Since there was not much news, I made another shot of one of my favourite models ever: the Württ. C "Technologieschau 1990" in blank metal livery.
Märklin 3514B ~ Technologieschau (LE 1990)
Märklin 37587 (LE 2017)
Although a hybrid, I couldn't forsake this beautiful Class 16 005, which in effect is an Austrian Class 310. I added it to the Models List.
Although I did a photo shoot of the Märklin Orient Express Set (Märklin 26922) on December 31st, I couldn't resist to shoot the very same cars in DC version (Trix 24793) for authenticity's sake, a couple of weeks later. This set contains coaches with with the same road numbers but lacks both a Baden IVh locomotive and a pick up shoe at the 1207-coach. Besides, this set consist only of 5 instead of 7 coaches. The other two coaches, released as Trix #24794, were not at hand at the moment.
Today I found several pictures of the 2017 Micro Feinmechanik new releases in my mailbox, kindly sent to me by mr. Andreas Mehrl.
Today a small winter-stop at my dealers. One of the customers brought his DRG 39 105, since on January 4th, alas, the tender was 'derailed'.
Hence I did a remake today, and had an even better and smoother winter light. It gave the exquisite atmosphere I was looking for...
Fleischmann 4897 ~ "Borsig pur sang"
Still continuing working on some pictures I took the 4th of January, here's a classic Roco model which was released no less than 33 years ago (1984):
the 01 112 with Wagner deflectors in Era 3 livery for the Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB).
I 'removed' the connecting casting between the two shields.
Being at my uncle's, he had two new purchases.
Next to the Fleischmann 410374 (003 131-0) there was the 2016 release of Trix 22962 (DRG 96 021)
The Badanian IV h Nr. 1010 on the Cochemer Bahn
Today I did a small photo shoot of a collection from one of my dealer's customers, most Roco and Fleischmann steamers.
Since daylight was sparse in his attic and there was artificial light as well, the colouring is not as I wanted.
Nevertheless, some missing items are now being added to the Picture Book, f.i. Fleischmann's DRG 39 105 in Prussian livery.
Or this DRG 93 357, a 1987 Roco limited edition with the 33 years old BR 57 3088 (43220 viz. 4116A, still with blank wheels).
And now the DRG 13 1189 (Fleischmann 4113) in a bright and clear shot. Or the 'antique' Class 78 134 (Liliput 7803).
Yesterday I made the last 2016 photo shoot at my dealers.
Next to the top notch BADEN IVh Nr. 1010 (Märklin #26922), many more models, new and old, where before my camera.
Märklin 37685 (N 2016)
Booklets (Märklin 37685) in special folder... that's a first time for me, seeing this.
Bavarian coaches (Märklin 41358/41369, New 2016) with moving buffer beam:
The ET 194 (former LAG 895, Güter- und Gepäcktriebwagen )...
Märklin 34831 (LE 1997)
... must have been in mind for this MHI fantasy model:
Märklin 39531 (N 2016)
A true exotic locomotive with marvellous printing on the Class 182 (Märklin 39845):
The NS 1652 and NS 2200 in its original brown livery.
Not directly in my line, but good lookin' as well...
Märklin 29256 (starter set)
