News 2021.07 - Mariazellerbahn ÖBB epoch 4 II

One of a kind!

The ÖBB B4ip/s 3260-o is the last documented representative of the rare Mariazellerbahn waggons with stipes. The ÖBB BD4ip/s 4240-3 completes the series and turns the 4 individually presented models into a set.




These two cars of the current MzB series are classic representatives of their time. The ÖBB B4ip/s 3260-o is also the last representative of the rare wagons with stripes on the Mariazellerbahn. For elusive reasons, some of the 32 and 31 carriages were decorated with an elegant, thin white stripe. But this never caught on as a colour scheme and thus examples are rare. The new model of the ÖBB BD4ip/s 4240-3 is based on the popular model from Stängl Modellbahnen*. 

For the first time, the BD model is being offered with an exemplary interior, all relevant pictograms and individual window prints, thus completing the current MzB series in an exemplary manner. 

* We are painfully aware that the window layout of the model does not correspond with the original vehicle. Originally designed as an interchangeable tool, the injection mold for the car body was permanently converted to the BD2 almost two decades ago. The resulting problems with interior design, roof and window inserts lead to higher manual labor and model price. The costs of a new BD1 mold in connection with the expected sales figures in the next 5 years (!) would make the model price jump to € 117.00. We hope that the current alternative is an attractive compromise.

    A new model from A to Z! It would almost be easier to describe everything that has remained the same than to list all the innovations that are now packed into the new 2095 locomotives! From front to back and from the chassis to the roof - a completely new model! A few weeks ago Josef Stängl, the founding father of the Austrian H0e scene, was amazed. The 2095, which he had made for so many years and in so many versions, had received a comprehensive model update. "It's great what you can do these days! I wish all this had been available in my days!"

    Modells of the ÖBB 5090 Class! In the early 1980s, when ÖBB's narrow-gauge railways, which until then had been served exclusively by locomotives and passenger coaches of older design, expressed the desire for competitive passenger transport with contemporary vehicles, railcars modelled on the VTs of the Steiermärkische Landesbahn were procured. The vehicles of the ÖBB series 5090 quickly became established on all narrow-gauge railways in the country, were exchanged among themselves like Panini cards, and still form the backbone of passenger transport today.

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.
