"Märklintage" : IMA
The IMA, Internationale Modellbahn Ausstellung, ( International Modell Railroad Fair ), is an yearly modell railroad fair in Germany, that over the years has changed locations between Stuttgart, Hannover, Berlin, München, Köln and Göppingen, although it is mostly known as the Kölner Messe.
See also IMA, Internationale Modellbahn Ausstellung.
Lately it seems that the IMA has settled between Köln in even years and together with the "Märklintage" in Göppingen in un-even years.
At the IMA you will find around 10 modell railroad layouts on display, and several local dealers will have a stall selling new and second-hand items.
Many manufacturers will also have a stall and some of them will sell a special item.
Märklin ususally have a special railroad car. Wiking and Brekina will have a modell car.
On Youtube you can find many videos from the previous IMAs. Search for "IMA Köln" and the year you like to see.
This is an incomplete list of when and where the IMA has been over the years :
