Hey everyone,

I have a few days of work in München coming up, and I'm looking forward to a little train time while there. I know the shop Gleis11 in the train station quite well, but does anyone know a good place selling secondhand Marklin in the München area? Advice is appreciated!

Thanks,
-John

Take bus 52 from "Marienplatz" to "Tiergarten", and get of at "Humboldtstraße". There's a second hand model train store located directly at the bus stop. I've been there some time ago, but unfortunately can't remember the shop's name and exact postal adress (sorry for this).

"Modellbahn Caesar" near the East Station (Ostbahnhof, served by all S-Bahn lines and line 19 tram) has some second hand stuff too.

Or try the "Gruber Events" swap markets, but note that these markets take place at locations "some way out of town", and their Gräfeling event mainly concentrates on Trix and Minitrix stuff.

I would start with Gleis11 right near the Bahnhof. I don't know if they stock "used" as well as new, but I am sure that the staff can point you in the right direction. They will know of any "swap meets" or other events during the time that you are there.

Just an update, I did some train hunting today.

Gleis 11 was great, I left with Koll books and some desperately needed Roco servicing parts. And most importantly a roco track cleaning eraser!

Modelbahn caesar was a fun stop, and a packed shop full of cool stuff! No purchases tho due to a tight budget and nothing used of interest.

I'm off to the Spielart shop tomorrow I think...

Karstadt in marklin-users.netch often sells stuff which would otherwise only be availble within sets.

So I you look for example for a loco from a starter set, Karstadt might be a good adress.

I think this is the one. Whichever is in the main part of town, possibly by a station.

That's the one, located just across the street from the central station. The model train department is on the top floor near the restaurant.

Well, I've been to Spielart twice in two days... BigGrin Blink Drool

What a great shop! I'm amazed I've never heard of it as it was a treasure trove of old Marklin! They had literally tons of old wierd and used; just my kind of place! Also tons of old model cars as well. I highly recommend it.

Budget dictated minimal purchases. I could have spent a fortune. Day one I bought a pair of Roco Italian FNM passenger cars I've literally been scouring the globe looking for to complete my set. (Images when I'm back in the USA)

Today I had to go back and buy a mint 4082/4083 pair of silverlinge coaches. I already have the earlier 4042/4043s, and these with the different windows can lengthen that train. He had the baggage car with light, but at 55euro it way way too pricy. (albiet mint in box)

Leaving Germany tonight so no luck getting to Karstadt...

What the hell is "marklin-user.netch" as in the thread title listed?

Oh no - ADMINs what is it? Ahhhh - I found it! I write "Munich" it is converted to marklin-user.netch. So I changed to München and München remains.

I think this "netch" is rubbish. My dictionary and myself do not know an English word "netch". Please alter it. Whereas, if I write "MUN" this is then correctly converted to "marklin-user.net". This you can keep as it is - thx.


Hello Dale,

some addresses for München - Please be aware about their opening hours. Some dealers have strange ones. When I visited them, their door was closed, even in winter at daylight.Laugh

http://www.modellbahncentrum.de/

https://www.bwbahn.de

how to get to bwbahn by public transportation I described in this thread

https://www.marklin-user...Special-offer-at-BW-Bahn

at post #35. BWBahn is down in the cellar a huge shop of about 500 square meters. Sometimes he has used modells, but I found old modells there.

https://www.maerklin-store-muenchen.com/

Maerklin store is right across the street of the central station in Muenchen at Karstadt on the 4th floor. Beside the shop in the shop is also a nice self-service restaurant for a break.Smile

Be aware at the moment the central station in Muenchen is totally under construction. But the shop "Gleis 11" is easily accessible from the South side entrance at Bayerstraße for platform 11.

Hello Dale,

I found Karstadt München Bahnhofsplatz (of which you are aware)
helpful and bought some items there in June 2014. No secondhand.
They were frequent with providing the papers to reclaim VAT on departure.

Have fun in München,

Regards,

PJ

The marklin-users.netch is because the M.U.N. is interpreted as a shortcut for marklin-users.net and the ch is appended as those were the letters after the link.
Writing Muenchen or München or Monaco (DE) will prevent future occurrences. I don't know why the 'I" disappears.

I wonder what happens if you type marklin-users.nethkin. So much for the lollypop guild

While there, you can also check out BW Bahn: Rohrauerstraße 70, 81477 München, Germany

Well, the transition from the shortcut "MUN" into marklin-user.net is functioning. M.U.N. I do not kow. But the city in English is "MUNICH" and what is a "netch"?

FFS can an admin please edit the title to M.u.n.i.c.h./Munich/München/M.ü.n.c.h.e.n./M_ü_n_c_h_e_n

I typed M.U.N. because if I would have typed the letters without the periods, it would have changed them into Marklin-Users.net.

As I stated above, the netch is because it inserted the hyperlink but kept the ch from the city name. I don't know what happened to the 'I'

Heading amended.

Situation is caused because some folks were persisting in using M.U.N as the forum name, so an entry was placed in the forum's swear word filter to insert the full forum name when the abbreviation was used. However, there are always unintended consequences...

Hello Dale,

I am with you. On the other hand the old title was more than misleading. Also I do not want to solve a puzzle first, before understanding the intention of a thread. In your case it was even worst. For what stands a word like "netch"?

Sorry, I only wanted clarity and not to destroy this thread, especially it was relaunched after 7 years. And do I have to know you are returning to München after 26 years?BigGrin. Wish you a pleasant stay in München. I always enjoy my stays in München, especially visiting one or two of the many still remaining MRR shops there.

Regards

Wolfgang

As I already stated:

You asked
Quote:

I answered:
"The 'marklin-users.netch' is because the M.U.N. is interpreted as a shortcut for marklin-users.net and the ch is appended as those were the letters after the link... I don't know why the 'I" disappears."

You then asked the same question again...

Quote:

To which I answered (again) "As I stated above, the netch is because it inserted the hyperlink but kept the ch from the city name. I don't know what happened to the 'I'"

and you still ask a third time.

So, one more time... When you type M+unich, the system interprets the letters M+Un as a shortcut for marklin-users.net. It then replaces those three letters with the name of the forum and appends the remaining letters (ch) from the City name at the end. I don't know why the letter 'I' disappears, leaving only the marklin-users.net+ch or marklin-users.netch as the text.

Hopefully it is now understood. Now if I could only stop my Mac from converting Marklin into Marlin. This is not a fishing forum.
