Here's a fun time-waster.

I was certain I had posted this previously several years ago but despite all my creative searching I cannot find it so perhaps I didn't afterall.

Agent Solo must outwit the evil loonie by (supposedly) switching two trains to avoid a collision and releasing deadly nerve-gas

The layout appears to be an original factory layout circa 1965, amusing train whistle effect to be heard. Some of the scenes are repeated but it's still an enjoyable flashback that many of you may never have seen. I don't have that specific layout in any of my catalogues or trackplans so I don't know the #.

From the episode "The Children's Day Affair"..... (some actors characters were to be found in both "Man from UNCLE", and Star Trek, both filmed around the same time in adjacent studios)



"I see no point in ruining two perfectly good trains" true on both counts LOL

You must have posted this somewhere, or someone else did because I have seen it before.

I never knew Marklin trains could run so fast!

A marvelous Märklin feature being switch points that are spring-loaded and therefore did not need the second click to prevent a derailment like some other makes and models...Wink ThumpUp
