- Oct 7, 2010Mark,
A lot of people, myself included, feel that the biggest mistake made here
in the US was the downsizing of Marklin Inc (the US subsidiary) and the move
towards Walthers. Walthers is just not focussed on Marklin. It is simply
'one of the brands'. Marklin Inc did a tremendous job waiving the Marklin
flag, promoting to stores, organizing events, and assisting consumers. Marklin
needs that back.
On the German political side, there is a strong push to keep the company
going. Also, the employees are motivated and the brand is still strong. I look
forward to the day Marklin regains in market share here in the US. I know I
will continue to promote them and share their Z scale new releases.
