Is Marklin Gauge 1 still a going concern? I am having trouble locating any of their deluxe starter sets. Also does Marklin/LGB still have a German factory?
Hi Mike, Marklin Gauge 1 is still being made and with companies like KM 1 producing high quality, high end items Gauge 1 has properly never seen better times.
Marklin LGB production is centered in Gyor, Hungary, halfway between Vienna and Budapest. I have been there a couple of times and the quality is very good. Marklin still has its headquarters in Goeppingen, and in my opinion, has seen an improvement since being taken over by the Simba-Dicky group. Miketg
High quality, but NOT inexpensive, models.
The Gauge 1 line and starter sets still do not seem readily available from dealers. Perhaps its in between new product.
