MÄRKLIN & RAILROADS

"Märklintage" : Events : Train Station
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 :
1. Train station in GöppingenThe station has 11 tracks. All but 2 are used for the "Märklintage". Tracks 5 and 6 are used for the normal train schedule.
All the rest are more or less used for the "Märklintage" :
A steam-locomotive should be going to and from Plochingen about 4 times a day ( only Saturday and Sunday ).
Another steam-locomotive will be giving short "cab-rides" within Göppingen train station.
There should be train pulled by 2 steam-locomotives going to Amstetten and back ( only once Saturday and once Sunday ).
Märklin has a table at the train station where you can buy tickets, get information etc.
You can watch the arrival and the departure of the special trains.
The station is also a great meeting point for catching up with friends.
