    More sound isn’t necessarily a bad thing if they also offer sound/decoder free options.

    • I’m not sure they’ll listen to you…but for now at least yes, most models are available decoder-free or sound-free at least!

    The best (worst?) bit about the catalogs is their truly awful English translations. I still have some old Fleischmann catalogs from the 1980s, and they haven’t improved since then! Seriously guys, hire a translator? Viessmann’s English pages are now online, but only in kindof-English 🙂

    • Hi Chris, I’m with you on this, and I’m not even a native English speaker 😉
      To be fair, viessmann is at least trying.

      We mustn’t forget that model railroading – at least in Europe – really is a very German thing. With the exception of the U.K. (and maybe Spain), I’m not sure millions are at stake in other markets for those niche products…

        You’re right that the German market is really huge compared to everywhere else. It is a great reason to learn German 🙂
