It's a shame Playmobil have abandoned the train theme.  Surely, Playmobil and LGB/Marklin could have come up with a join package of some sort?

Ich habe erst die Tage erfahren, daß es früher persönliche Freundschaften zwischen LGB und Playmobil auf Chefebene gab (beide Firmen lagen ja nicht weit voneinander entfernt - die eine links von Nürnberg, die andere rechts). Vermutlich war das damals auch der Grund für die erste Zusammenarbeit der beiden Firmen in Sachen Eisenbahn.

Just a few days ago I got to know there used to be personal friendships between LGB's and Playmobil's leading chiefs long ago as both companies used to be settled not too far away from each other (one on Nurembergs left the other on the right). Quite likely that's the reason for that old partnership.

I have once proposed to remove the production from Playmobil trains to LGB into their ToyTrain series.
