Marklin Wish List
- I would like to see a South African Bayer-Peacock Garrett locomotive,
some more Bavarian State Railway locomotives ( a D Xll in
particular ) with matching KStB rolling stock and a couple of modern
passenger train starter sets.
I would also place an order for the Cab Forward and a Big Boy.......

Perhaps the time is nigh to place stock in a new flagship?
Perhaps the above-mentioned manufacturer will not be the one to grasp
such an opportunity.
I know that all those reading are well aware that there is simply
nothing quite like seeing a string of Z-Scale passenger carriages
negotiating the gentle curves that only Z can provide. (unless one has
enormous reserves of space and finances to match).
Capitalising on these advantages in the context of motive power would
surely open some eyes, create stimulation amongst the railroad modelling
community and expand potential markets with attendant benefits for all,
within the hobby of which we are so fond.
It sounds like a strategy to 'Go Big to Go Small'.
Worthy of consideration.

- To add my 2 cents for a wish list, I'd also love to see more
unusual rolling stock, including rack loks and cars (yes, I have
my eye on Freudenreich's new rack lok...), funicular railway
components, doodlebugs, etc. Also more realistic catenary,
more accessories, structures, figures, etc. My personal interest
is in Swiss landscapes, but other areas would do also. And if not
Marklin, is anyone else listening?
