... and India may never get it at all ! It is a royal pain to chase up on missed issues with Märklin !

I must say that Märklin is very prompt in getting your "mitgliedsbeitrag" !

Cheers,
Ranjit

Adrian , there's a few little things that like to buzz around the compost heap even in winter , no idea what they are called but much smaller than the dreaded mozzie. They leave a nasty bite that lasts longer than the mozzie bite but is about 1/4 of the mozzie bite .
temperature tomorrow is forecast for 25c , looks like a early summer comming .

Hi Everyone,
Just got eMail from Märklin Quote…” Due to warehouse issues at the Märklin factory, we are experiencing a delay in receiving the #3/2021 Märklin Magazin and Insider Club News from Germany. The #3 and #4/2021 Mailing will be sent together. We apologize for the delay….” End of Quote
Nice, so we getting screwed on this side of the pond Märklin March / April issues in August maybe September.
P.S.
I won’t comment on it… ‘cause it maybe related to recent flooding in Germany.
Sincerely,
Märklineisenbahn

What emails are these that you guys are receiving from Märklin ? As an Märklin Insider Club member, I am not getting these emails let alone the timely delivery of the Insider Club News and Märklin Magazin !! Is there something that you guys know that I don't ?

Ranjit

Hangon Ranjit don't panic, I think Jerry is referring to a possible email sent out by Marklin USA - which he would get given he's in New York, but we wouldn't get being outside of the US.

Hi Ranjit
You also may receive newsletters from Märklin See here https://www.maerklin.de/en/service/newsletter/
That way you are notified about all new items or possible registration for the limited edition model.
Another way is to subscribe to a member registration (you have to pay and specify the language). See here https://www.maerklin.de/en/clubs/registration/
If you ask for German, the Märklin Magazin is almost the double in size of the English version. Drawback: you receive all letters and catalogues in German INCLUDING the prices in Germany in Euros

Cheers
Jean

Hi Ranjit,

As Bigdaddynz wrote, that particular email in previous posts you are referring to was sent by Marklin USA to inform the North American market of Insider Club Issue delays. The US branch receives the printed material in bulk and redistributes them to the US and Canadian members.

Cheers,

Harold.

Thank you, David and Harold, for pointing this out.

Jean... the link that you sent me only has information about the newsletter and the Euro 5/- gutschein for signing up. However, there is no place to register !

Hi Ranjit
Märklin website is divided into German and English sides and they forgot to finish the English side. Sorry
Here is the German side https://www.maerklin.de/de/service/newsletter/
The English application is not from the main website. Here it is: https://www.marklin.com/clubs/di.../membership-application/

If you can understand German you will have much more information
Cheers

Thank you for the German website links of Märklin, Jean.

I have now subscribed to the newsletter and I received a gutschein for Euro 5,00 ! Unfortunately, this gutschein is of no use to me even as a Märklin Insider Club member ! I end up having to pay German VAT (which is crazy), and on top of that, I have to pay an exorbitant shipping cost to India. The Märklin Online Sop is ideally suited for the Deutsche Modellbahner. It just doesn't make any sense for the rest of us.

Take care and stay safe.

Cheers,
Ranjit

Both my Marklin and Trix 04/2021 arrived this morning.

Both are gushing about the VT92 501 model and accompanying coach set.

Interesting item for a couple of folk here ... there are a couple of coaches to go with the VSM Museum train, items 94536 and 94537 available at VSM.

I think I'll have to send an email ... they don't list them in their shop on the web page.

Did you buy your VSM Museum train set directly from the museum ?

There's a fair amount of gushing over the 3 Crocodiles / Aligators, plus they are on the front cover of the magazine.

Plus some gushing over the Rheingold train.

No I got it from a shop in the Netherlands. I don't know if it is available from the museum, but it probably is as they are a beneficiary of each one sold.

Today must be a luck day for me ! Issue #04/21 arrived in perfect condition ! The package was not in tatters, it was dry and it did not have any dog ears ! Can all the issues be like this ? I doubt it.

Yes, mine arrived this week.

Apart from the fact that the postie folded the package in half and jammed it in the opening when it would have fitted flat without any problem, it is in good condition. Confused

Working from home under what we call COVID Alert Level 4 since last week has been fine, apart from a few network capacity issues.

Hi Adrian , yes we are moving slightly east & a bit north probably about 15 kms. At the moment we are at the very top of Lake Macquarie with wonderful views over the lake from the top of the hill ,cant be built out , awesome house & a massive garage with 3.5 meter clearance ideal for a boat ,caravan or RV & a ideal train room 9.5 m long by 4.7 wide . We have brought off the plan a 2 apartment we have which we have been able to amalgamate which has a heap of potential for the future , removal of the kitchen & adjust a few walls all at no extra charge . This is right on the Hunter River & cant be flooded out when we get these east coast low storms . a walk to the shops & we are on the edge of the night life area . Now the BIG BUT , they have just started foundations for the group of apartments & probably not finished till late next year if we are lucky. so a lot of things will have to go into storage & we will have to find some short term rental till its finished . Do I hear of any offers for house sitting or a low priced holiday rental ? We will be able to watch all the shipping come & go full of beautiful ,high quality , low ash content Hunter Valley coal being exported overseas .

Cheers Tom in Oz .

Ah ha... I don't think that you North Mexicans are allowed over the border to beautiful banana bender land.. Flapper See if PJ can get you a temporary visa for the deep south..

Sad to see that you are downsizing, but I guess all that land gets hard to keep up as we get older. I have always wanted to live on a lake. Lars took us to a nice place in Sweden with houses on a modest lake - even in the frozen winter it looked fantastic. At least, you will be closer to the wineries now., Smile

Mee to! I was wondering if the insider magazines for Marklin were still being printed.

It seems like they are promoting their other brand, or off brand, and not Maerklin.

I love Marklin but their treatment of us “foreigners” borders on afterthought. Or is it the same in Germany? Sure the pandemic has had an effect but it was like this before. Mid October and I have 3 of 6 publications and no club car. I read just now about the Insider Club Newsletter and Marklin Annual Chronicles Part 1 Film being available on the website under clubs but I can’t access them, my computer says “plug in blocked” and my iPad says “network connection was lost”. My dealer here and holder of my Insider account was unable to secure any of the fall release 88146 locos for us. Marklin's first come first serve policy makes their dealers here compete to serve their customers. Being in the Insider Club does not help to secure new releases at all. Being an Insider feels just like being an Outsider to me. Where’s the love Marklin?

I believe it is not Märklin's fault but mail and parcels are severely disrupted between Europe and the USA.
I live in France, agreed much closer to Märklin but we still have to wait a little compared with Germany.
So today I still haven't receive my Märklin Insider October number (#5) and my ordered train (Rheinpfeil) has been postponed by one month.
I don't know what your problem is accessing Märklin videos. No problem here. Sorry
Truth is the world is still disturbed by Covid and its aftermath so patience is key.
Cheers

Thank You. I was quite happy to get the video link working today, the download took a very long time but I have it now. Streaming was not working well. Regarding the "newsletter" I am having trouble even finding something called a newsletter on the club site. I can find the Insider Club news, but not newsletter. So it was the news PDF that I cannot download.

I received my final English Insider and Marklin Magazin today from Marklin USA - It was issue 3 (June/July) along with the Marklin and Trix Summer New Items brochures. There are always long delays for Canadian readers (I guess this holds for all of North America). I had enough of that and decided to try just receiving the Marklin Magazin directly from Germany. Fortunately, my German is good enough to read and understand that version. I've had the German issue 4 (August/September) since mid August. I'll probably renew the German Marklin Magazin version, I don't need the other Insider perks.

Cheers,

Harold.
