As a Canadian Märklin Insider member I received the 06/2020 on March 05, 2021 better very late than never.

We should receive the next one shortly I was told.

Oh, I havn't been an insider member since before the big crash and recession. I still have all the isuues, plus many of the Magazines. Prehistoric digital stuff by now, but pkenty of members nice layouts and photos.
The last presentation book catalogue I have is also from 2006, but they date back to 1984. My first dealer gave me those through 1995 when they retired.
That is not an inexpensive thing anymore to publish full color catalogues, but it give professional photographers work. I admire that. Many are online PDF files now exclusively.
I recieved a very nice Roco catalogue last week with an order via post. A Faller new items brochure also with my 5 bay central fire station kit.

I've seen talk of them doing it on Sunday in the UK - apparently because there is an expectation of delivery any day of the week, brought on by the likes of Amazon deliveries. Scared Woot

Saturday postal delivery is still a thing here... for how long, who knows? There has been talk over the years of doing away with it, but somehow it manages to hang on.

Hi All...

All my Märklin Insider Club stuff (Annual Cars, Catalogues, etc.) for 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 was stuck at Joes Modellbahnlädle due to the pandemic ! Joachim Diez has just confirmed that he will be shipping all the items by today ! Yay !!

Sadly, the #1/21 Insider Club News and related literature is still not is sight !

Cheers,
Ranjit

1/21 hard copies received a few days ago here in California. I really like the magazines. I wait instead of looking at them online!

Got mine a week ago. Find it odd, if that is the right word, to receive the package and see a number of things listed in the mag with due dates in February. Why bother include them if know aren't going to get out until after due date. Something not right.

I'm still pretty new with this and maybe expectations are a bit high. (Just joined in Jan and got my starter set in Jan.) Sort of wondering if my $100 membership is worthwhile. Maybe just not as hard core about Marklin as could be.

P.S. Starter set still doesn't function properly even after sending out (twice) for service. For now just living with it.Mad

I agree with you and find it unacceptable that we receive these mailings essentially out of date. That is really not acceptable. It is also not "due to COVID". Is it due to the fact that Marklin doesn't care? Maybe not, they did add an extension to some cut off dates this year. I haven't been in the club long enough to know if it will always be like this. That said, I enjoy the member benefits, videos, hard copy, and free car. I like the club. And the late postings do not keep us in the states from participating. Simply go online once a month or so and see what's cooking. Forms can be accessed and as a club member you will have a specific dealer that can take care of you if you want to reserve a club model or make a reservation. Our US dealers like Z Scale Hobo and Marklin USA have gone out of their way to make sure I didn't miss out on anything. I did miss the cutoff date to be entered in the free model raffle for early Club model orders. So I need to practice what I preach. That was a long shot anyway.
It is also a shame that your starter set is not working properly! It would be so much better if your first experience was a positive one. As a relatively new train modeler I have been surprised by how much there is to this hobby. It can be challenging but also rewarding. Glad to see you here on the forum (support group?). At least know that we are all in this together and for most of us it is worth it in the end!

Got April Insider mailing today with a 5 year certificate of membership - whoop whoop - lucky me BigGrin.

Pretty sure it's been a lot longer than that, but for some reason the older membership cards have a different number on them.

Never mind.

I think they told me my card would expire soon and to be honest I doubt I'll bother updating the card details and I'll just let the subscription lapse.
Must build something
