We visited Menzel's last week. An excellent store, with friendly and
helpful staff! This is probably the best stocked railroad modeling
store i've seen so far.
I bought a V200 diesel (88201) and some DCC decoders plus the new
Faller railroad crossing and some 'kopfstein'-street-tape (all Z-
scale, of course).
My wife liked the doll-house department, so neither of us was bored.
I actually spent more on shopping in Düsseldorf than my wife....
We also enjoyed the Alt-beer and the 'halwe hahn'.
Since it's less than 2 hours from our home by ICE ;-), we'll
definitely be visiting this town more often.
