The first models of the SBB EC (Eurocity) coaches by LS Models have now been released. The first releases include 2 variants of the Apm 1st class coach and 6 variants of the Bpm 2nd class coach. The models have different revision dates and representations of modifications to the coach for that particular time frame. As such, here is the breakdown of the models:

Apm (1st Class)
47356 Apm Coach Nr 201 16.09.97
47357 Apm Coach Nr 267 27.03.07 Vacuum Toilet

Bpm (2nd Class)
47350 Bpm Wg Nr 204 18.02.98
47351 Bpm Wg Nr 216 20.04.07
47352 Bpm Wg Nr 262 04.11.98 Wheelchair Compartment
47353 Bpm Wg Nr 271 27.10.09 Wheelchair Compartment
47354 Bpm Wg Nr 244 20.04.07 Bike Compartment
47355 Bpm Wg Nr 243 11.17.05 Bike Compartment

Based on the revision dates, these are the most likely combinations:

Coaches Nr: 50, 52, 56 (1998-2000)

Coaches Nr: 51, 54, 55, 57 (2007/08)

Coaches Nr: 51, 53, 54, 55, 57 (2009/10/11)

I am not 100% certain what the interval between Revisions is, but I think that it is highly unlikely that one would find a mix of revision dates with a space of more than a few years, so it would be unlikely to find coaches with revision dates of 1997/98 later than 2000 or maybe 2001/02 at the latest. For this reason, I have broken the models into the combination possibilities above.

Personally, I have ordered 47353/54/55/57 representing a consist around 2009. I will add one Apm Panorama coach once they are available and will supplement with a Eurofima Am with matching livery/revision date and possibly either Bpm (1979) or B (ex-Bm 1972).

In other forums, there have been comments about differences in color with the Roco models. As I intend to run the coaches as a consist on their own, this will not be an issue for me. Once I have received the models, I will extend this post to include a visual and mechanical review.

I am pleased to report that the parcel with my SBB EC coaches has arrived in Canada and will hopefully be delivered in a few days, so that I can complete my report.

I have added 47351 to my coaches to round out the consist at 1A +4B. I noted that the 47357 has a significant touch up to the white stripe above the windows.
I don't know if the flaw was detected prior to shipping in China and repaired there, or was done in Europe once the models were received by LS Models.

In any case, they need to have a representative who can do checks during production and ensure that any corrections are professionally done and not done by a 10 year old with a brush and a can of testors. That said, very nice models, but I will have to see a photo of the actual model before I commit to order additional models.
