The value of belonging to the Insider Club is always worth investigating.
The magazine honestly is a bit wasted on me, because there is little of interest.
Insider Club News is fine but I can get that online, so why the printed material?

Personally, I like receiving the mailouts, the magazine, the DVDs, access to order the Insider models, and the annual car, as well as the occasional discount on admissions.

The world seems determined to fall apart right now and maybe even with good reason. I guess only time will tell.

But Märklin production will have to be significantly altered by restrictions now in place around the globe. All 2020 models will be delayed and I expect many to just be cancelled.

So no matter what is on their website or in their brochures many of them will most likely never be made.

I just hope that they are doing the right things to survive until this is all over.
Regards,
Jim

I have almost all Märklin and mostly HO, although I do have a small number of Z gauge trains!
I have models from Era I to Era VI, but I try to focus on Eras I & III. Whoops, that one got away from me. Let's just say I focus on cool trains, regardless of the particulars :-)
So many trains and so little time.

I for one am a little happy for the delay.

This means I can save up and get what I want. I was seriously over budget in my train spending last year. I might even be able to buy food now, but then I will need toilet paper, it is a cruel world after all! Cursing

Exactly ThumpUp

Buying new trains that way is more fun anyway, at least it is for me.

I needed to cut back about now and this mess has really worked a treat. BigGrin

I think that it helps to find good in the bad, at least when and where you can.... ThumpUp

but that hasn't been very easy of late, unfortunately.

Be Safe

Jim

Hello,

Mine 2/2020 arrived today. Thanks to the Covid and the extra-slow Post service...Confused

Luckily I could read on the Insider Site. It's a good thing the new technologies, but I still prefer having in paperRollEyes

Based on past experience the East Islanders should have got their copy of 2/2020 on 18 April.. It is now 19 May and no sign of them.. Not good.. Crying

NZ Post apparently has a 5 week backlog of deliveries and are not even receiving bulky items from Germany due to capacity issues (so their website says). If the envelopes come separately they might get through, if they come as a bulk package and are split up for local delivery then it might be some time before we see the Insider magazines.

Have any West Islanders [ Oz ] been lucky with the mail yet for 2 of 2020 ? Was just checking my book shelf & had the idea that 2 of 2020 had been already received but couldnt find it , 1 of 2020 being the latest .


Cheers Tom in Oz .

My dealer tells me that DHL are not sending any more bulk shipments to Australia.. His last Marklin order was returned to the factory after they tried for two months to find a plane to take it to Australia. My guess is that 02/2020 fell into this one too.. Especially as they send them economy mail..

Yes, smaller individual items are coming over, but the big stuff like all our magazines and dealer stock is not being shipped by DHL any more..

DHL aren't even shipping small packages. I've got two waiting with sellers to send - 1 a small reefer car, the other some 1 Gauge curves. The seller of the curves tried to send them, but they were returned. Roland is also holding some stuff for me at Lokshop for the same reason. No indication of when DHL can ship, but updates will be posted at https://www.dhl.de/en/pr...onavirus.html#neuseeland

One of my dealers has a shipping invoice for an item I have on order, but admits that he has not gotten anything is some time and has no idea when that might change. From what I can tell no one really does at this point, although there are people who think they do. BigGrin

Another dealer said that he can get MRR items shipped to North America if he is willing to pay 850% more that he did before, so he is obviously not receiving inventory either. I would say that the Märklin hobby is kind of dead in the water for a while, at least outside of the EU .

Good thing I had decided that I wanted to cut back anyway. ThumpUp

Club news is always late for us and god knows when the latest ones might arrive.

Jim

Hi All,

I hear there is a work around getting items from Germany at this time.

Have purchase from Germany sent to the UK pay the VAT then have the UK address send the goods to Australia.

The system is being tested at the moment by someone else.

I did consider something like that. I do have a parcel inbound from the Netherlands (3 weeks in transit so far) and another recent one from the UK. That might be an option if those two parcels arrive OK.
