complete list (in preparation)

Some model railway makers add one-time limited series productions to their regular range of model trains which are announced to public first and are later being produced depending on the actual demand. Some items are limited in number (so you may have to hurry up with your order), some others are limited by date (orders have to be placed until a certain date). We are listing this models here for you in order of the countries where the original railway is situated, since this gives the best overview both for the modeltrain user as well as for the model railway collector. Many of these models have become valueable collectors objects !

Attention: Items of the Roco International Collection 1-2003 have to be ordered latest until 30-Aug-2002; only the number ordered will be produced and it will be hard to find these items next year!

A word on limited series of model-trains:

Model railroad layouts would be a lot more boring without special series runs. To continue in times where the level gets higher and higher, items cannot be produced for stock anymore. Three main modes of realizing a modeltrain special series have developed:

  • The manufacturer announes a limited train-model run but starts the production not before a certain minimum of models is sold by orders in advance (like e.g. Liliput, Trix ...)
  • The manufacturer announes to produce any number of a certain model in case the order is placed until a certain date (like e.g. the new Roco International Collection)
  • A distributor orders and pays the whole production run of a certain item and so gets the exclusive right (or possibility) to sell it (like e.g. Dolischo, LS-Models, etc.).

There are various ways in between but the main thing they have in common is that if manufacturers shall support you with interesting special models you have to support them by a definite promise to buy. At nowadays demands of quality almost no manufacturer can produce on his own risk alone and due to the hhuge number of items almost no dealer can afford to hold big stocks on all those items.

So you have to order in advance to decide what will be produced. It is not fair to complain about a poor variety of items if you do not buy at the other hand. No one can live on 'oh, I really like that you have now finally produced this wonderful train-model, neither dealers, nor makers.

Older special model railway items which cannot be supplied within a reasonable time may no longer be listed. In case you want us to search for such train models, we will, however, do so - and we are often quite successful.

This page is backed by our continuously maintained database which changes about every 10 days. If you are interested in limited special modeltrains, we recommend to visit this page more often to get a quick review if there is something new available. In case you have wishes or ideas regarding this page, please do not hesitate to let us know.
