About us

Since I was a child I have had a real  passion for electric toy-trains.  My first loco was a Märklin FM800 class 24 DB which is still kept  stored away  in a display with all the wheels excavated by long consumption! My passion never ceased,  as I became aware of  many more  different trains layouts. Step after  step I bought all the locos, including the legendary crocodile 3015, all the passenger coaches and all the freight cars that were only an unreachable dream when  I was a child.

Then I came into contact with  the world of the barter fairs for second hand  toys. There I met many collectors and throughout  many years of learning and great passion  I was able to refine my knowledge within  the world of the model railways, especially the Märklin world.

Now with the realization of this web site, the time  has arrived to let the whole world know about  my experience and I feel so willing to  help anybody in the purchase,  sale and exchange of their  own collections.

Personally I still find the most  exciting  moments of this job when I myself can catalogue  the various items I receive, estimate them and to take pictures of them, while  looking forward to  my next dream: a most complete version of the book about Märklin  ever published with all the existing possible versions!
