I hope I have chance tu purchase it and run in my layout. Last November I tried to run my Charming 6k in the N gauge Spanish national fair but it was not possible. I wanted to take a video and show you here.

If I read it correctly Kunter is realeasing its CRH2-022A (10-304L) now and partially via direct sale. Only very limited numbers are available. Payment by January 2 will see the train shipped by January 4.

The set is also available via https://www.facebook.com/CNRailModel/posts/943799372912220 in HK.

Edit: CNRailModel is also accepting reservations for the new 25B double-decker sets by ModuFactor in orange/cream, https://www.facebook.com/CNRailModel/posts/943805549578269

 

This information about China Rail novelties is very usefull because here in Spain we have no chinese model train dealers.

You might be too late for the 10-304L Kunter CRH2A, there are non available on TaoBao and CNRailModel. You would have to perhaps find a way to buy through Kunter's WeChat shop, perhaps using a proxy. Amounts were very limited.

They are only a few dealers outside of Mainland China, mainly in HK and Japan.

I recommend following the WeChat accounts of the manufacturers to follow news and also visit often this baidu link https://tieba.baidu.com/f?kw=火车模型&ie=utf-8.

 

Edit: or come here, I and @Nozomi329try to keep reporting production/sales news.

There is one in my country owned by a Chinese person but they have few China Rail items.

For buying, best source is TaoBao via a proxy and/or CNRailModel FB account.

Thanks for your support, taobao even with VPN doesnt work properly from here.

 

I was able to purchase in Spain the Charming 8K and 6K.

Taobao is a pain to use. You need to register to be able to use the site correctly. You can register with your browser auto-translate function and a cellphone to receive the activation's number. I found out you also then needed to activate password login, otherwise you'll be stuck.

There are some guides online but I did not found them very useful. I had did everything by pocking around.

It's good to have Taobao unlocked as I don't find the proxy's search functions well thought. It's a pain to find items with them. The best is to find the items on Taobao and then copy-paste their address in your proxy "shopping agent".

If you're looking for this specific set (10-304L), you're pretty much out of luck. The Kunter Wechat store is out of this set as well. However The three car basic set of 10-302 is still available at some places.

Hi, 

 

my two CRH380 sets arrived as a Christmas present 🙂
Lights are already installed and the train is running very smooth...I was just wondering about the DCC sticker on the box. 
Does anybody know if there are versions with included decoders? 🤔 I didn't have the confidence to place the motor car on the track of programming. 

See a write-up on DCC installation here!  Best of luck!
