Modelbouw Boerman Update January 2023

Modelbouw Boerman has posted an update on their website stating they are not planning any new items for 2023.

Boerman will focus first on the delivery of the Harz 99 5906-5 steam locomotive (Q4/2023) and the type Vevey Rollböcke (Q3/2023) that were announced as 2022 New Items, before committing to any new developments.

ESU New Items 2022

ESU announced their New Items for 2022. There’s no official brochure (yet?), but the highlight for large scale is probably their new “CabControl” DCC system.

CabControl is basically the feature package that we know from their ECoS system, but in a compact DCC central station “brick” combined with their handheld controller.
