A time when much is changing


This week, the last TMXs (VIDA and Tågkraft) have been shipped from the factory and are on its way by plane. We are therefore hoping to be able to deliver them at the beginning of next week (week 37)

Unfortunately, production is going a little slower than expected, (though still much better than in 2021 – a year with very few deliveries). Next month, however, the factory will open a new department for spray painting, tampon printing and assembly – which means that our production capacity will approximately double, so when we round the New Year we should be up to full speed again.

Because of this, we have the following delivery dates for the presented news:

CM passenger cars: October/November 2022

QGR with brake housings: November/December 2022

Y2 Kustpilen: Q4/2022

The current delays means that we have pushed our new catalog to mid-October 2022.
But I can already reveal that there are new models in the pipeline – both for traction and wagons.

Dekas in the future:

Unfortunately, our CAD designer during past 5 years – Allan – has chosen to seek new challenges and will start on a new education as carpenter at the end of October. I wish him the best of luck with it all and thank him for the great work he has done at Dekas – he will definitely be missed. However, Allan does not disappear right away, as he continues on part time during the first six months of the education.

Because of this, I have been considering a lot about what the future of Dekas should be. Until now, the biggest part of our daily work has been drawing and producing for others, and our own models have been something we did occasionally, when the time was right. However, I can see that our own models are experiencing a great rise in popularity, while at the same time as OEM it is difficult to make a profit on with the rising inflation. In addition to that, there is the task of finding a replacement for Allan – skilled model train designers is not easy to find, and training a new one will take a long time and cost a pretty amount of money.

I have therefore made the decision to not take on a new designer, and at the same time cutting down on new OEM productions, and instead focus most of the resources on our own Dekas products.

So, despite fewer people, we’re going full steam ahead and I’m looking forward to presenting our upcoming news for October.

Please note that ALL Lokalbanen & Skagensbanen Mx are sold out from us (and discontinued) The rerun

of TMX from Vida and Tågkraft (blue and orange) will arrive us in 2-3 weeks time

SJ Kö & Ugkkpp – soon arriving

After a spring loaded with delays and other sad news, we are now here with some positive news.

We have now received the production samples of our SJ Kö / Ugkkpp wagons.

As the pictures shows, it is some very detailed models.

The cars are now getting assembled, packed and dispatched from the factory over the weekend. The wagons are expected to arrive here during week 22, and will be dispatched to the dealers who have preordered.

After the Kö, our TMX locos are next in the assembly line. These are planned to be dispatched on end of June, so we can start dispatching in the month of July.

Delivery times for new items

Although we here in Scandinavia have become accustomed to a life where the Covid pandemic takes up less and less space in everyday life, this is not the case everywhere in the world.

A shutdown was introduced yesterday in DongGuan in southern China, to limit the spread of Covid infection. This is where our factory is located.

Unfortunately, this means that our factory has been closed indefinitely – Right now the hope is only 2 weeks of shutdown, but as seen earlier, it can take both be for shorter or longer time. Also, based on previous experiences of shutdowns in China, we do fear, that we first will be up and running again around Easter.

Right now, it is very difficult to give an ETA on new items. Therefore, we must accept that there will be delays in relation to previously announced – a minimum of 2 weeks, but it all depends on how the “reopening” proceeds.

This applies not only to DEKAS ‘own products, but also to our OEM customers (McK, Hnoll, Exacttrain, ASM and LEMKE / HOBBYTRAIN)

We will update the website as much as possible, with expected delivery times, but as mentioned, It is only a snapshot and we hope for the understanding and patience of all of You.

Best regards
