Interesting article I stumbled upon tonight from earlier this year....

Dr Boy supplies two more injection molding machines to model railroad producer

Fascinating to think that an even bigger machine made this machine, which makes our beloved 'machines'

Wheels within wheels

Cool

They need new machinery since Sanda Kan is no longer producing for Märklin.
Several 2010 and 2011 items have not been made yet - maybe there are some teething problems with the new machinery.

The article (from the China Plastic Journal BTW) does not mention whether the new machinery is used in Germany or Hungary.
