Playmobil ..... !
Posted by Matt/Wisc on Monday, December 29, 2003 10:58 AM
Hello all! [:D]

I just finished reading an article in the December, 2002 issue of Garden Railways magazine. The name of the article is "The other side of the tracks"; written by Harold J. Adams. He mentions in the article how he used action figures and buildings offered by Playmobil to build an outdoor railroad on a budget. Is anyone else using Playmobil figures and buildings on their railroads? Pictures?

Thank you,

First off, using Playmobile figures in the garden is not uncommon, whats fairly uncommon is using Playmobile locomotives and cars in the garden. This is due to the fact that Playmobile trains are very expensive for what you get. They can be more expensive than comparable LGB. I believe Playmobiles are manufactured by LGB, even though LGB offers its own TOYTRAIN line that are more realistic and less expensive.

   Have fun with your trains

I and maybe others, would like to see photos of railroads that use Playmobil figures and buildings. If anyone has photos; please post them. [:D]
