Sad news for Playmobil train lovers
« on: January 14, 2023, 18:06:09 »
I heard a short time ago that Walter Turner (waltstrains) passed away on the night of Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th, January; he had been in ill health for some time and will be much missed by the Playmobil community to many of whom he was Mr Playmobil Trains.

I'm sorry to hear this. I cannot claim to have known him but he reached out to me once on a train-related matter, which was a nice thing to do. Since then I have bookmarked his webpage:

If possible, pass my condolences to his nearest and dearest. He was a gentleman, sorry for your loss.

 :'(  I didn't really know him, but his name is probably familiar to most collectors.

A big loss for all the community.

Rest In Peace
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

Same for me, a familiar name. My condoleances to those who knew him personally.

Resistance is futile, you will be boarded!
