Model of the BD in Jaffa - available for the first time!

The series of Jaffa models continues! Now that the first wagon models of the MzB are already out of stock, we are pleased to offer a complete train set consisting of three passenger coaches (B) and a matching combined passenger coach with service compartment (BD) for the first time. As is so often the case, the small series models are only available in limited quantities, so better order all four right away!




The Jaffa livery was named after the Jaffa Cake, a sponge cake with orange marmalade, which originated in Great Britain. The Jaffa lacquer is emblematic of an entire era in Austrian railway history. It began with the repainting of the first locomotives to the classic blood orange colour scheme in the early 1970s. The wagons were gradually overhauled, repainted, and then wore the much more striking and modern colour scheme until it was replaced by the Valousek design in the 1990s.

For a whole generation, the first railway was Jaffa! Reason enough to resurrect this era and bring it into the next millennium. With the most modern production methods, it has been possible to do justice to the abundance of possible models. Each carriage is unique and has been made exactly according to prototype photos from the corresponding period. The production status of the four new cars is the end of the 1980s. The models therefore now also have a control number, just like their larger prototypes. 

Each car is unique! Each of the wagons is a little different from the others. Not only the lettering has been implemented in an exemplary manner, but also the frames and bogies, roofs and the type of Webasto heating have been carefully adapted. The abundance of details, up to faulty stickers in the windows, are adapted on all models of the new 3200 series, but be careful: Each coach number is only available in very limited numbers! The production plan foresees more than 20 different models from all stages of the wagons' life, so there is hardly any possibility for a new edition if a wagon number should be sold out.

    The first new Jaffa since the Ninetys! We still have one left! But we promise that this will be the last Jaffa wagon this year. Contrary to rumours, and quite obviously, production of narrow gauge models has neither ceased nor is it to cease. The production of the Berlin Reko wagons has been delayed and so we have brought this novelty forward!

The interest was so great that unfortunately some of the new models are almost sold out before we could announce them. Once again, we recommend ordering quickly, as we cannot promise that these models can be produced again!

Just as legendary as Athos, Porthos and Aramis (The Three Musketeers, novel 1844, Auguste Maquet) are the three "Blues" on the Mariazell Railway! Although they probably belong to the old guard with around 60 years of service, they now shine in new splendour! The models of the new V10s have also been thoroughly revised and now offer, in addition to active rear lights and interior fittings matched to the individual prototype machines, probably the finest and most detailed front fittings to date!

Now, for the first time, cars from the Ybbstalbahn are available that have never existed as a model before. As with the first cars in the series, these models have also been modelled closely on the originals with great care. Every car can be assigned, every lettering can be traced, and every window pictogram that has fallen off is also missing on the model.
