>>what are worth in quality the products microThere is no comparison. While both Marklin and MicroTrains F7's run forever,
>>train like F7 � comparer � Marklin

MT = absolute scale model, Marlin = toy train compromised scale
MT = pulls 60++ cars on flat track, Marlin = 20 cars (approximately)
MT = trucks/boogies are in the correct place, Marlin trucks/boogies are in the

MT = is geared down quite a bit, and will handle very slow speeds very well
Marlin = is geared high, runs fast, hard to get it to do very slow speeds at
Marklin locos cost three times what a MT loco costs (over here), list price.
I have both. I enjoy both. But the MT's are by far the better value and
