For those that don't know Apocopa
are one of the few small companies producing French rolling stock.
They have been well known for making a range of IIm scale items especially and uniquely the railcars.
Looking at their website, Max the proprietor has hinted that this range maybe reduced or even discontinued in the future and urges people to buy now.
However he is producing (subject to sufficient orders) a new model of locatracteur 114 in Corsica and he will remake the molds for the Brissonneau 401/402 bogie diesel loco if there are a minimum of 5 orders.
These bodyshells are cast in of heavy resin. A shell only needs quite a lot of work to make into a respectable model but they are uniquely French and every good metre gauge modeller here has at least one of Max's products.
