25450Re: Toy Trains up to My Z today.
- Oct 5, 2004Uwe,
Just a quick note to let you know that I was able to spend a few hours
in Munich before my return trip to the states.
I went to Fischers and Obletter's and it was worth it...
I was at the Munich Airport early Wed. (9/22) morning and found that
I had some time to kill before my afternoon Lufthansa flight for SFO.
I checked my baggage into a locker at the airport and then hopped
onto the S-Bahn for the 45miniute ride to the main Munich train
Nice ride with lots of trainspotting along the way. When I got
there - WOW.
I was in ICEHeaven; there was a nonstop stream of ICE2, ICET, ICE3, I
had never seen so many ICE trains before! I pulled out my MiniDV
camera and just sat there filming for almost an hour straight.
Afterwards, I went outside of the station and hopped onto the tram to
the next station and went to Obletter's and Fischers. Just as
described - they are literally across the street from each other!
Both are nice shops - Fischers had a much larger area dedicated to
trains but both were very well stocked.
I was a bit bummed when I started asking for a gear for my 8871 and I
was told that it was only a special order part. (I suspected as such,
but thought I'd ask anyway:)
Anyway - hope you get to play some when you're there later this week!
