was traveling to Europe frequently.
Subsequently, much of my early collection came from automobile tours of
upstate New York, with Marklin's U.S. Dealer List tucked inside my glove
At that time, I was delighted (and chagrined) to find Marklin Z selling
for 50-percent off at dealer, after dealer, throughout New York State ---
each dealer selling-off their Marklin inventory, or going out of business
As you have found, their are no Marklin train shops in Western New York;
none in Upstate New York; and precious few in the City or on Long Island.
The advice you've received regarding mail order and Ebay is sound, but --
hey -- the dollar is strong again against the Euro, and the summer fare
wars are upon us: Why not pop over the pond and do some serious shopping
while ridding the prototype? (... that'll *really* stoke those coal
fires within you!)
