Until recently the only way to model the Harz in HO scale was the very expensive brass items by Weinert Modelbau, the fairly basic Kehi items or the growing number of 3D printed bodies on shapeways. Brawa produced the regauged Harzkamel 199's a few years back too. The Kamel suffers from very stiff bogies but it's a fairly simple fix, remove the body and Unclip the housing on top of each gear tower. On the bottom of each housing carefully take some off the two bumps that bear on the chassis so the bogies aren't as tight to the chassis and then reassemble. It allows more movement and stops them derailing on points or gradient changes.
Tillig announced some items a year ago and they are now arriving.
The first model to arrive is the little 0.6.0 99 6102 'Fiffi' the saturated steam version of a pair of locos produced in the 1930's to compare saturated vs supreheated. 6101 'Piffi' looks virtually identical apart from a few detail differences such as placement of the bell although it is superheated. Both real locos survive on the HSB.
6102 is sold in a set with three goods wagons and comes with a detail set to add bufferbeam detail etc, not added that yet so it's missing from the photos.
There is also a twin set of coaches just been released and a bogie brake, more on these soon.
Beware the polythene slip that is use to lift the loco out as it was squashing the very delicate whistle on mine so that needs to be watched when putting it away.
Comparing it to the Brawa Harzkamel on Tillig's TT setrack.
