a memorable day, not in a positive way. Maybe all of our hearts are in Belgium at the moment.
Back in 1963 Lima was one of the first suppliers of model railways to Belgium (Märklin and Fleischmann offering only Nohab Diesels in a no-frills experiment, sharing the Danish market, too). Lima offered a very lovely SNCB class 125 with a distinctive sleek shaped carbody. It first came powered with a old fashioned and good running "pot motor" (some call it "Rivarossi style") and the same french bogies they used on their BB9200 electric. I believe that the model was rather successful, as it ran with minor changes (including the G-motor) well into the 80's.

In 1991 this model was reworked, but basically using the same body which sat lower on the frame. Some details werde changed, although not the G-motor. This model came in different versions, I just own the following example in green.

Around 1967 Lima introduced the next SNCB engine. It was a tricourante locomotive for European express services, the class 150 in blue. Single arm pantographs were quite rare back then, and the the blue and silver paint added extra interrest. In the 70's it came in a Golden Series train pack with French INOX TEE coaches (Mistral/PBA 69)

In the late 80's it recieved a revised paint job with yellow stripes, the item number 20 8027L remained the same.
And a bonus model, the rather rare green starter set V60 for the belgian market. Similar shunters worked on the SNCB in green colours, although Lima's model showed DB markings.
