With the arrival of our GE 25-Ton Diesel Switchers, finalizing 2019 products, and the busy 2018 holiday season we missed updating the News section of the website. We hope you can forgive us.
As we prepare this news blog, more reviews of our new GE 25-Ton loco variations are being published and we thought you might want to see some of them. For good reason, folks seem to be quite impressed with the accuracy of the little beasts. With most of these pint-sized models weighing in at just about 3 pounds, people are finding they pull a good number of cars as well. Considering the real-life locos usually maxed out pulling 3-4 cars, we feel we were able to one-up the real thing!
Of course, we are not done making these diminutive models. Our 2019 New Items Flyer and Catalog show more new items coming later this year, including four more GE 25-Ton locos and two starter sets. Some of them even include a new remote for radio control, continuing the PIKO tradition for innovation. Among the many reviews are this latest review from Garden Railways magazine which was published in the Spring issue for 2019. They also created a nice little video introducing folks to the model, with the link here.
Model Railroad News, published by White River Productions, has also done thorough reviews of the 38150 Might Hauler Starter Set as well as on the complete line of 2018 models. (If you have not read MRN reviews, you are in for a treat as they always include a good amount of information on the prototype.)
We have even found YouTube channels with early reviews of this unique little loco. We hope you like watching these as much as we liked making the models!
