Calling the model of the Glacier Express Ge 4/4 III loco “Fideris” a “garden railroad sensation” is definitely not an exaggeration. Never before has so much development and technical performance been packed into the production process to provide G-gauge fans with such an exquisite model. The brand-new chrome loco beats everything that has gone before it! Turn to page 6 to share in our enthusiasm and discover how cooperation between two specialists in their respective fields - LGB and Schaal-Oberflächensysteme - gave this model its unique high-tech chrome-plated finish.
A German railroad legend celebrates being the new model highlight of the summer season and the latest addition to LGB’s standard gauge range. The E 10 1240 only operated as the “Rheingold” loco for six months before swapping its magnificent beige-blue color scheme. But now it is up and running again. Along with two brandnew “Rheingold” passenger cars. If you want, on your layout. Talking about layouts: Uwe Dörr from Upper Franconia has adapted his garden railroad to survive the harsh weather in his home country. He also has some tips and tricks up his sleeve.
“With LGB, I have an inherent desire of wanting to play”. This issue also features an exclusive interview with Florian Sieber, the managing director of Märklin, who explains how important garden railroading is in general - but also, for him personally. We hope you enjoy reading it!
