The Company

   

Aneste/Datank is a small Spanish model railroad accessory manufacturer and distributor that has been around for many years. Aneste fabricates items such as streetlights, fences and such, while Datank produces cast metal details.

They're also official distributors for Herpa, Kibri and others.

The Figures

Datank produces a decent range of N Scale figures. However, upon close examination, one will realize these are soft-metal castings made from Preiser and Merten figures, packed in cardboard boxes with clear plastic windows. Curiously, Datank also uses Preiser's catalog images on the back of the boxes and on their website. Photos are mine.
