At some point in the future, I'll talk about my release hopes, but for now, here are the '' items I'm waiting on or that occupy my wish list! Initial reviews of the already released Duetsche Bahn version have been very positive.
I like the interesting color scheme that is used in Alsace, although there are other version in equally interesting liveries. Not yet released, although various sources seem to indicate it should be here by this summer.
Arnold now reborn after the requisite bankruptcy maneuverings under the Hornby brand! I expect more of the usual great quality from Kato which, naturally, is at a price point putting most European models to shame.

I did later find out that Haltiner Online blog does show you the clue to discover which side has the socket there is a silver sort of rectangular box on just one end, this end has the socket I had some trouble removing what's referred to as the 'head' Your not done yet!
Now you need to remove the body shell in pretty much typical fashion. Although like a lot of the modern models, the plastic seems far tighter than it really needs to be and trying to carefully get the plastic seperated from the chassis is something I could do without!
Digital joy is now yours! Some more cool things about this set: It might be considered a nuisance to have to keep all four of the cars connected all the time. But and I think most of you will agree with this the good part is that this allows for all the wheel-sets to have power pickup! Personally, I will deal with the cumbersomeness of lifting all four cars connected together any day if I could get more power pickup!

You know what else is great about this model? Finally, in terms of operation Obviously I haven't had it long enough to see how it holds up over time, but its beautiful to see in operation and nice to be able to plant a passenger set on the tracks with all the lights installed!
So, can you tell that I'm thrilled with this set? I wish I could say every purchase I have had in this hobby was just as rewarding and hopefully other FLIRT owners have had similarly positive experiences! I'm also curious to see what other liveries Liliput eventually hopefully? It appears that the prototype is quite popular in many European countries and there is a huge list of great looking color schemes to produce for years to come.
