Overview of future projects
I am sorry to report that this project has been cancelled with MBW announcing a similar range of Br44 at the same time
E41 and Br38
The CAD design for these models is complete - they will now enter the Lenz quality assurance process, along the same lines as the Br50. All models will be rigorously tested for authenticity and reliability before they are released for sale. The lessons learned and technology developed for the Br50 will speed up the build time for these models.
Future planned steam locomotives
Br56.2 (Prussian G8) 2-8-0 Tender loco (Br55 rebuilt with stabilising bissel truck in the lead.
Br55 0-8-0 Tender Loco
Br74 - Almost 1,000 were built to the Prussian T12 design and were in use until 1968
Br70 (Bavarian Pt2/3) Distinctive because of its 2-4-0 wheel arrangement and large gap between the leading axle and the main driving wheels. A superheated tank loco for local passenger traffic - perfect partner to the Bavarian coaches released in 2016
New coach designs
The next new coaches will be the Gruppe 29 Express coaches and another run of the 4yg Umbauwagen.
The Wyhlen 10T crane wagon will be produced with DCC operation
Lenz O Track
A surface mounted turntable will make larger models easier to handle on small layouts
