Märklin Price Change

Yesterday we received updated pricing for Märklin products. Our own prices are being calculated based on a discount off of the new Retail Prices and will appear on our web site very soon. Orders placed prior to our price change will be shipped at the older price. Just a heads up! Thanks, Bill

Märklin 2008 4MFOR Military items (link)

Märklin announced 40 new 4MFOR Military items to compliment the 22 items produced for 2007. We were very excited to see these new offerings although no photos were made available to us at the time of announcement. Today we received new 2008 4MFOR catalogs showing all of the items and the photos should be uploaded later today. The new items include some impressive armor, freight cars and a couple of helicopters. An excellent addition!

Purchasing 1/2 of Märklin Displays Offered

We have decided to offer our customers the ability to order 1/2 (50%) of the contents of various "displays" that Märklin is offering in their 2008 New Items. We have added On-Line ordering for the Z scale M86306 Long Henry 20 Car Display as "M86306HALF" if you'd like to order half of the display (10 cars) rather than the whole display. Upon request we will add similar listings if requested, such as the M0770 2008Q1 DB Rebuild Cars Display w/12 Pairs of Cars. All pricing is halved!

Märklin M37187 Double Steam Loco Set (photo link)

Märklin made an error in the new item brochure and accidently left out the M37187 Double Steam Loco Set which includes TWO 4-6-2 Pacific Steam Locos, one in green (Bavarian colors) and the later black DB version. Early Bird Preorder pricing for this set is quite reasonable at less than $225 per loco.

Today we finished mailing out over 400 Preorder Packages including both Märklin & Trix items for 2008. If you are expecting one and don't see it within about 10 days, just let us know.
