Novelties 2022.06 - ÖBB 5090 Class

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.




Based on the first models from Stängl Modellbahnen, Leopold Halling soon developed his own, legendary 5090. Like his great role model, it was soon available in numerous variants on virtually every H0e line. 

Its only disadvantage was that the sound conversion was usually not necessary - you could hear it coming! The new single-engine power unit from HALLING Modelle is not only much quieter, but also offers a specialised weight block that not only accommodates the (sound) decoder but also a 10x15 loudspeaker (Item No.: LS10x15)! 

The models delivered from 2022 onwards are equipped with this new drive! If you prefer oldschool, you can still order your model with the old, loud and twin-engine drive (Item No.: H90-OLD). Further models are in preparation and... yes, there will also be models from the good old ÖBB times! The tradition of the 5090 with its colourful assortment continues, albeit a bit more modern and clearly quieter!

    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!"

    ÖBB B4iph/s 3200-3246 The new edition of the 3200 carriages in the popular Jaffa colour scheme continues! 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.
