The latest releases from the Newqida factory are "cut-down" Passenger Observation / Sightseeing coaches. These inexpensive cars come in several liveries including the following versions which are in stock now:
PIKO SPECIAL – RDG CAMELBACK 0-6-0 STEAM LOCOMOTIVE & TENDER WITH SOUND & SMOKE (PK38240)
The interesting camelback design is also known under the somewhat peculiar name of Mother Hubbard in the USA. This latest model released by PIKO of the 0-6-0 Steam Locomotive in Reading 1399 livery reflects a late camelback design with tender and roof for the fireman. This brand new locomotive comes with factory fitted sound and smoke and is available now.
PIKO USA TRAIN SETS REDUCED IN PRICE - POSSIBLY THE CHEAPEST ENTRY INTO LARGE SCALE RAILWAYS
The price of three Piko G Scale Starter Sets has been reduced by £14 making them a very attractive way of starting in G Scale with brass track for outside use. The Products are Pennsylvania (PK37103); Santa Fe (PK37104) and the festive Christmas Set (PK37105). Why not get one now and put away as a Christmas present?

GOOD NEWS REGARDING LATEST NEWQIDA COACHES. A combination of reduced wholesale prices, favourable exchange rates and more advantageous shipping rates has enabled a significant priced reduction in the price of the latest Newqida "HARZ" and "SAXON" Style European Passenger Cars in single and two tone liveries to £36 each making them virtually irresistible.

P.S. Many liveries sold out initially but additional quantities have recently arrived (especially Saxon Two-tone Red/Cream and Green/Cream) which proved very popular. Further styles are in the offing later this month so keep an eye open for future developments.

PIKO 2-6-2 STEAM LOCOMOTIVE DB BR64 EPOCH III
The superb Piko BR64 DB Epoch III 2-6-2 steam locomotive is now available and creating considerable interest amongst the G scale fraternity who favour the continental scene. This is possibly Piko’s best release to date and besides the traditional well engineered build and robust characteristic features considerable detail. This is especially true with regard to the drive mechanism and fine scale wheels which are fitted with ball-bearings and equipped with stainless steel rims for improved appearance, superior performance and reliable electrical pick-up.
The engine is capable of negotiating the tightest curves thanks to the hinged rear drive wheels although it will always look and perform better on more generous radius curves. The loco seems to have more than sufficient pulling power enhanced by its weight and traction tyres and powered by a seven-pole Buhler motor should have no difficulty hauling a rake of wagons or coaches at realistic speed just like the prototype.
This sturdy model comes in DB Epoch III livery and has both indirectly controllable directional and running gear lighting which adds to the night time experience. It is supplied with operating mode selector, opening smok-box door, factory fitted smoke generator and is “DCC Ready” for retrospective fitting of digital control and sound module if required. It also comes with a pack of small components to complete the model.
Great value for money and selling fast. CLICK HERE TO VIEW DETAILS

NEW PIKO USA DENVER & RIO GRANDE PASSENGER CARS
Those of you who regret the demise of the Bachmann G Scale Jackson Sharp Passenger Coaches in Denver & Rio Grande Western livery may be pleased to see that PIKO have released similar cars (albeit a bit shorter than the Bachmann version). They are also a tad more expensive (especially as they only come with plastic wheels and are not lighted) but I suppose we have to be grateful that we can now obtain this popular railroad once more.
For 2014 Piko have just released a D&RGW Drover's Caboose (with metal wheels and operating marker lights) and Full Baggage Car to match the above Passenger Cars made available last year. The Caboose is possibly the best piece of historical rolling stock produced by Piko to date and should find a home on any Railroad Pike portraying this era of American Rail Travel.
