Speaking of rollers... I'd really love it if you'd consider my recommendation on the rail ones: putting a small gap in them for the rail so it sits proud of the street surface.

So when you clean the track you don't end up scraping the paint off the road surface?  And since  N scale wheel tread is wider than the railhead, the wheels don't end up riding on the road surface (instead of on the metal rail), resulting in poor electric pickup?
Friend of mine has some street trackage and he buried the track even with the road surface. We had all sorts of intermittent pickup problems. I took an old #11 hobby knife blade and ground it into a tool which scraped the pavement to be little lower than the railhead.  The trains run better now.

Hi,

I will make a roller and test the concept. Although it sounds very straight forward, it does not necessarily gives the right results.

In the meanwhile I've designed a bunch of new cars.

Let's start with the Saab!

The Saab 900 (1978-1994) is a true classic. Although based on the older Saab 99, the Saab 900 remained quite popular over the years. This was mainly due to the powerful turbo engines and the introduction of the Saab 900 Convertible in 1986. The available kits represent the facelifted versions that was available from 1986. The models have a so-called Aero body kit including the typical three spoke alloy wheels. Model is delivered unpainted.

The following kits are available:
N2334 - Saab 900 Turbo 16S (1/160, LHD)





N2335 - Saab 900 Turbo 16S Cabriolet (1/160, LHD)





U2334 - Saab 900 Turbo 16S (1/148, RHD)


U2335 - Saab 900 Turbo 16S Cabriolet (1/148, RHD)


More information (also how you can create the curved windows in an easy way), can be found on our website: https://railnscale.com/2019/06/10/saab-900/

And then there is also the Peugeot 205!

The Peugeot 205 is a supermini produced between 1983 and 1998. Soon, the 205 proved to be a very successfull car that probably saved Peugeot. During the production years the appearance of the 205 hardly changed. Various versions are available including the iconic 205 GTI. Model is delivered unpainted.

The following kits are available:
N2331 – Peugeot 205 3-door (1/160, LHD)




N2332 – Peugeot 205 5-door (1/160, LHD)




N2333 – Peugeot 205 GTI (1/160, LHD)




N2883 – SET 3x Peugeot 205  (1/160, LHD)




U2332 – Peugeot 205 5-door (1/148, RHD)

U2833 – SET 3x Peugeot 205 (1/148, RHD)

Awesome!

That's actually holding a current project up so I'd love to hear how it goes. I'm willing to be a beta tester too.

Also, those Saab's look awesome. It makes me very sad that they went away because I'd definitely look at owning a modern one.

Yeah, N-scale models brings a lot of sentiments. I know.

Now I've got some more you may like:

N2322 - Volvo F10 6x4 Hooklift with roll-off container LHD (N 1:160)
U2322 - Volvo F10 6x4 Hooklift with roll-off container RHD (British N 1:148)

This time I present you the Volvo F10 hooklift with roll-off container. Such vehicles can come in handy in all kinds of settings, because let's be honest: on a model railroad there is always a place where work is carried out and where litter needs to be collected.
The hook arm is mobile and can therefore be put in various positions, so that the container can be 'carried on the back', or placed anywhere on the back of the truck. Although it is a static model, this flexibility helps creating a lively situation.

In the meanwhile the Volvo F10 Flatbed with tarpaulin is now also available in 1/148th scale (Art.Nr. U2321)

Hi,

This time I'd like to introduce to you two new rollers for making paved railroads without any pattern.

With thes rollers you can easily build flat roads without a pattern.

N9074


Roller N9074 can also be used as a pre-roller. So first you you use this roller to create the proper slits for the track and afterwards you create the desired pattern with a roller with the appropriate surface.

N9094


With roller N9094 you create a similar street surface, but about 0.5 mm recessed. This allows easier cleaning of the tracks.

For comparison I've made the following picture:


Best regards,
Maurice

I have some feedback after using the new "notched" roller.

It's fantastic.

THANK YOU!!!!

I do have an idea for improvement though: while using it I found that I'd sometimes get clay residue in the rail grooves and cleaning it wasn't straight forward (it's too wide for a knife, too narrow for other stuff). It'd be great if the roller came with a "scraper" that was setup to help dig that residue out.

Hi,

NEW: Bergmann 2t electro trucks

The Bergmann 2t electric trucks proves that electric drive is nothing new. Bergmann produced several types of such trucks since 1911. The production of the Bergmann 2t started around 1931. It is equipped with a 14 hp motor that drives the rear axle via chains. The top speed is 30 km/h which isn’t particulary quick. But then again other trucks from this era didn’t go much faster.
The German Reichspost was a big customer of the electric trucks and possessed over 2,600 of them! Due to the reliable power train the Bergmann trucks were still in use in the 1950s.
Several different kits are available:

N2061D - Bergmann 2t Reichspost + Decals





N2061 – Bergmann 2t Reichspost


N2561 – SET 2x Bergmann 2t Reichspost



All kits are unpainted.

Hi,

In the early 20th century, driving an electric car was as common as driving gas or steam cars. Because of the popularity of gasoline engines (how ironic: thanks to the starter), we have forgotten electric cars and think that electric driving is a novelty.

The dairy company C. Bolle in Berlin was also a major customer of electric vehicles and had more than 200! Due to the reliability of the power train, Bergmann trucks were still used in the 1950s.
From this version, I published the following kits:

N2062D - Bergmann 2t Meierei C. Bolle (with corresponding decals)






N2062 - Bergmann 2t Meierei C. Bolle


N2562 - SET 2x Bergmann 2t Meierei C. Bolle



There is also a commercial from this dairy company, which includes the electric truck:
https://www.bolle-meierei.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/20131015_Bolle-Zeichentrick.mp4

All sets are unpainted 3D printed kits.
