Great to meet you today Herman, hope the event was and will be all you hoped for.

Let me know if you make it to NZ, we'll look after you

and here's the departure train at the end of the day today... turn your sound on.



(sorry its just phone video and the start is wobbly as I weave my way between people on the platform)

A truly weird and wonderful lash-up of so many classic DB locos in one train.

I had a nice experience at the Maerklineum. A employee was talking with a visitor. When the visitor was gone, I heard the Märklin employee saying to one of his colleague. “Oh, this man was from New Zealand. I cannot believe it, he traveled to Germany only for the IMA.”ThumpUp

One of the advantage of this forum is the connections and contacts we make with each other. Some of us have been privileged to finally meet the faces behind the names we've known for so many years.

I also took the opportunity to meet with two members in their homes during my travels, while in the UK, Nadine and I met with Roger Baker and had a most enjoyable meal with them followed by salivating over Rogers collection including vintage Starter Sets which I never tire of. Photos will come when I am back on my PC.

And yesterday I finally also got to meet Markus Schild and his family. Markus has been immensely helpful to me with my Wonderwheel (Wunderrad) and his legendary knowledge of Märklin Metall particularly and vintage Märklin in general.

We had a most enjoyable time including afternoon tea, the hours rolled around all too quickly before time to catch my train back to Stuttgart. I very much appreciated his warm welcome and some of the stories and knowledge he kindly shared with me.

Back home in NZ whenever I am traveling to a town where I know a fellow enthusiast lives I try to meet them if possible and if they are comfortable with it. It's a great way to learn what others enjoy and a bit more about each other.

Well, I know Frankfurt (FRA) - Buenos Aires (AEP) is the longest scheduled nonstop flight for the Lufthansa Group. They fly with a 747. By heavy upwinds they have always the risk must do a technical stop in South America for refuelling. A nonstop flight from Europe to Auckland (AKL) is not possible, even Europe-Sydney nonstop is not yet possible. Quantas offers London-Perth nonstop. So I looked up the flight miles and was surprised myself.

FRA - AEP 7.128 miles
FRA - Singapore (SIN) - AKL 11.613 miles
FRA - Los Angeles (LAX) - AKL 12.308 miles

New Zealand is really at the other side of the world and pretty far away from Europe (or vv).

Asking @Cookee_NZ at our dinner at the Italian restaurant, he told me you were already back on your way to Stuttgart. What I pity, I would have appreciated very much talking to you personally.

Hi,
great to hear your meeting with Markus, he realy is a great guy, was a success.
Frank and myself felt very obliged meeting you and your New Zealand Crew at the interview together with Rochus from the Märklin Magazin.
We should have had another beer afterwards.
Hearing so many things about your New Zealand Club left us nearly breathless.

Enjoy the rest of your stay in Europe

A visit down-under must be an option for you now, as you can see, it's not that far 😀

Between Frank and Markus, and hopefully from Bodo Schenck who I also met briefly, I feel I have now talked with living encyclopedias. Very honoured indeed, and very humbled.

Thomas, it was great to meet yourself and Frank. You are certainly most welcome to pay us all a visit in NZ sometime. Great to also be introduced by yourself and Frank to Ralph, the webmaster for Stummi's forum (c'mon Juhan, time to step up to the mark Wink).

Today was a Miniatur Wunderland day.......Oh my Goodness! Love Sensory overload!

We also had the 'Behind the Scenes Tour' which is well worth having. They are currently working on the Monaco scenes and I could pick out the Formula One track quite easily.

Hi PJ,

no doubt about your statements. A reason why I added vice vera - it does not depend of the point of location. The distance is always the same. And the additional 2 hours from Sydney to Hobart are only about 10% of the total flight time, one and a half stone's throw.BigGrin

But how far away is Hobart from Auckland? Perhaps same distance as from London to New York City?Cool

We don't fly through Auckland, our flights take us Franfurt to Singapore (13 hours), Singapore to Melbourne (7 hours) and Melbourne to Wellington (3.5 hours), a total of nearly 24 hours in flight.

We also have a 1 hour flight with Lufthansa, Hamburg to Frankfurt, before the International flights.

I did work the distance out to be just on 13000 miles / 21000 kms.

When traveling to Europe we usually go Hobart to Melbourne (usually the day before), Melbourne to Singapore, Singapore to Europe (they have a number of destinations between Istanbul and Heathrow). All up that also takes close to 24 hrs depending on connections and subsequent travel within Europe to the final destination.

We are certainly far away on "this" side of the world.

Be happy to fly from HAM to FRA. Just saw in the news, last night it was quite windy in North Germany (not unusual). Nevertheless the total train services in Niedersachsen and Hamburg collapsed again. Peolple had to stay and sleep overnight in the trains.

I know we have had discussions on this forum in the past about the various 'oddball' locos that Marklin have produced with clear bodies, and I saw a pair of Br103 with 'neon' bodies (which have been mentioned here in the past) at the IMA. Thought people might be interested in the price Scared Crying Crying Crying Blink Blink Blink Scared

I was also interested in the clear Br24 which I wasn't aware marklin had produced. It appears to be a factory sample if I am reading the description right.

Not really Alan. On the photo a price of 820 € is listed for the "Werks-Handm" of article #3003. This "Werks-Handm" (not abbriviated "Werks-Handmodell") I read and translate as a single manually crafted model by the company. But for me the listed price is an offer for sale. I would send a mail to Maerklin and ask for this loco, if you are interested.

I guess this sticker in front of the loco was irritating you, but has nothing to do with this loco. It is a general advertisement they are looking for new employees for their tool making department for such models.

I'm quite sure that "Werks-handm...." is short for "werks-handmuster", the term Märklin usually uses.

Asking Märklin for this loco will not help much; since the seller is Ralph Brannath from TINDREAMS............ Cool

This "Werks-Handm" (not abbriviated "Werks-Handmodell") I read and translate as a single manually crafted model by the company. But for me the listed price is an offer for sale. I would send a mail to Maerklin and ask for this loco, if you are interested.


I'm quite sure that "Werks-handm...." is short for "werks-handmuster", the term Märklin usually uses.

Asking Märklin for this loco will not help much; since the seller is Ralph Brannath from TINDREAMS............ Cool

Per.

Cool



Agreed. The 3003 is marked as a handmade prototype from the factory, that this reseller is in possession of and selling for 820€ to whomever wants it (or whatever price they agree to). Its a pretty niche collector that would want these things for sure.
Toys of tin and wood rule!

I got an E94 3022 from Ralph when at Staufer Park but I don't recall seeing the locos Alan posted a picture of. Will have to check my photos.

I saw them, and have photos also. Given my interest in the clear and tinted bodies they caught my eye right away
