"HONGZ" stands for HO scale, N scale, G scale, and Z scale.

Post your non-O scale stuff here!

From what I understand, most of the LGB product is being produced at Maerklin’s satellite factory in Gyor, Hungary, although a certain amount of rolling stock might be produced in China.  Of course,  with outsourcing of components happening among all manufacturers these days, I doubt 100% of anything is built in one location anymore.

Yes.  Most gauge 1 Marklin and LGB is made in Gyor.  However, some US rolling stock and engines appear to come from China, despite a lot of the LGB Chinese tooling being moved back to Hungary. I’ve heard part of the reason is that this tooling may not be compatible with the Maerklin injection machines.  The high end metal engines sometimes have a product of China sticker on the shipping carton, although it’s hard to say what that means.  Is it a Hungarian made engine with Chinese components, or is the whole thing made in China.  I always wondered if the metal engines are made in the same factory in China as the USA trains metal engines.
