German small series manufacturer MBW Modellbahnen – owned by Frank Elze – has ceased operations due to health concerns. MBW produced hand-made models in 0 scale and 1 scale.
The new firm “Spur 01 Modellbahnen” – owned by Sascha Elze and Pierre Elze – will continue with (a part of) the MBW portfolio.
For 1 scale, the DB BR 24 and BR 64 steam locomotives are planned for late summer 2023. In 2024, the BR 44 should follow. All other former MBW projects may be considered to be on hold, the lower cost die-cast V 60 & V 90 locomotives are cancelled.
