"Märklintage" : Events : Leonhard Weiss
The following are my own experiences from previous years. It might be quite different at the next "Märklintage".
Please also read the programs and flyers from the previous years.
The "Märklintage" usually consists of 5 main events and a 6th possible event :
4. Leonhard WeissMärklin has always taken care to involve companies from the region around Göppingen especially when designing the yearly "Museum-Wagen".
Leonhard Weiss is no exception, and in fact is the obvious "partner" for the "Märklintage", since Leonhard Weiss is a company that - also - builds and maintains railroads.
The offices in Göppingen, located just next to the railroad and close to Göppingen train station is where you can learn everything about maintaining railroad tracks.
You can see a locomotive from a pit and various other things of technical interest.
There will be modell railroad layouts on display, and plenty of activities for the children.
The "Märklin Webcenter" can be found there where you can upload your digital pictures to Märklins website.
Finally the "Märklintage" Radio Station "Radio-Fips" broadcasts live from the area.
You can get to and from Leonhard Weiss either with the shuttle bus or with the red "Schienenbus" - railbus VT 98 + VS 98 - from the Göppingen train station.
