Hi George,

for my personal point of view:
I would like to keep the focus on Playmobil trains.


LGB and the old Playmobil trains are related, but the LGB assortment is far to big to cover in that FAQ.


Regards

First, the FAQ is very useful, explain and illustrate to people who wants to know more about Playmobil trains.

However, to find a specific answer to a specific question it could take time, for pepole with an average kowledge of english or german langage.
So if i were you i will begin the FAQ section with a "FAQ section" I mean with questions and short answers, and not with "Playmobil and LGB / Lehmanns Groß-Bahn LGB" section. Other section will be useful to detail a "short answer".


For example:
1. FAQ section
is it possible to connect plastic and metal tracks?
Yes it, but you need a specific part (#xxxx) that is no longer available to Playmobil
For further information read the "Transformer or RC – Which is the “better” system" section paragraph 7.

What can of track can you used with an electric train?
only Metal track
For further information read the "Transformer or RC – Which is the “better” system" section paragraph 6

What can of track can you used with a RC train?
Both plastic and/or metal track.

and so on



Like electricity, Playmobil are essential for humanity

Hi,

thanks for the reply.
This is a good idea and can be added.

But what are the main questions?

How many main questions should be answered? If there are too many of them it can become also a very long text...
