Hi Playmofriends,
I am also interested in Playmobil and L.G.B. trains.  I ran mostly Playmobil engines and rolling stock with L.G.B. track.  Does anyone know why Playmobil switched to their plastic track?

All the best

Jim

Hello, Craig ...

Thanks for sharing the info about the "G Scale Society." I visited their site and discovered a very interesting outdoor layout that seems to be a nice blend of Playmobil and LGB. If anyone wants to look at it, it's John Hulse's Rosenbach, Riverdale and Fencedorf Line.

Hello, Jim ...

It was probably a combination of their wanting to introduce a battery powered RC train and also wanting to be independent of LGB.

All the best,
Richard
