    Default Oh! The temptation!

    I recently came across something on the Railways of Germany forum that could tempt me to sell all my N scale stuff and go HO. This HO model of the new Stadler 9000 dual power electric and full power diesel by Sudexpress:



    Okay, it is too late to change scales now, but the temptation is immense!

    I don't really care much for the look of these newer diesels, but holy cow that looks incredible. I'd scoop that up in heartbeat anyways (if I was in HO) just because of how sharp that thing is.

    Yeah, cool that the prototype is electric on the catenary, but can also use diesel power on non-electrified lines. And not just for "last mile" power. So it can use catenary power on the Deutsche Bahn main lines and switch over to diesel on a branch line without catenary.

    Here is the website for the N scale model. Looks like it is still in development, but aiming to have many of the same features.
    https://www.sudexpressmodels.eu/products/product/194

    Luckily for me it is a freight hauler and I just do passenger service......thus far. Minimum radius 358 mm, 14 inches.

    Mmmnot quite - that page is for a H0 model. It's 266mm length, and it's a 21MTC/NEM660 decoder interface, so it's not for the LokSound micro v5 which comes with Next18 interface as the widest.

    Agreed. I guess their attention to detail is with the models.

    Looking at this I’d like to see rotating roof fans become a thing in N scale, regardless of who starts it first, fingers crossed! I’m sure if it happens it won’t be cheap though.
