Might very well be a rights issue.. Tomix isn't allowed to export the Thomas stuff outside of Japan either for example, as far as I know.

Thanks for the info, Massimo

Too bad, I thought customers are kings.

 

Didn't Kato Lemke wanted to make a older version of the 'Oriental Express' back too?  I thought I saw it  in  previous years Hobbytrain report?

unfortunately also in Europe, sometime train models factory need to ask and pay for rights if the train represent a trademark or special paint (CIWL, Coca Cola, OBB Taurus Special paint - Sissi, Franz Liszt etc.. like the last Jaegerndorfer/HT release)

obviously not all the companies ask fees (is a good way for inexpensive commercials)

I remember this item was planned in the old HT report and is still planned on website

but I don't know the reason because it was not yet released.
