LGB train for children
« on: November 02, 2017, 11:43:14 »
I came across this is a search for LGB Toy Train buildings:

Much more than an equivalent Playmobil version would cost, but LGB clearly believe that there is a market out there for G scale for youngsters.

In what sense "came across"?

In the sense I had to move the boxes where the trains are, and I peeked in a box of wagons  :-[

Life must be one long experience of discovery in the Playmomountains of your home, Tahra! A hazy memory helps too?

Just looked it up, it looks as if it's in winter camouflage!

I have an LGB Agip fuel tanker I'm going to make into a milk tanker and stick a picture of a black and white Playmobil cow on the sides.

I didn't know you were into trains.

Sounds interesting! Later.. :picsplz:

Your planned decoration for the tanker reminded me of this sticker; http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showpart.pl?partnum=30-89-5682 (but without the pig!)

Unfortunately (?) there is no theme I am not into, I suppose.

I want to see pics of that milk tanker too!

Hmm, cow's milk, goat's milk, but you're right, pig's milk is a non-starter!

Im Gegensatz zu Playmobil kann LGB drauf setzen, daß LGB-fahrende Eltern ihre Kinder damit für die Bahn begeistern wollen.

Other than Playmobil they can just relay on adults already runnig LGB trains hoping to spark their children.
