Hi,

over in the Piko Starter set thread a LGB Pensylvania Hopper appereared to compare it with the 1 : 32 MDC Roundhouse wagons, which are in some of the the starter packs. Of course the LGBs are larger, LGB so far never build anything in 1 : 32. Märklin does for years.

Somebody in German bashed one, to make it look more European : http://www.fgb-berlin.de/galerie/details.php?image_id=1457&mode=search
Sorry, don´t know how to link directly.

A lovely litte master piece.

Have Fun

Fritz -

The ironic part is that the earlier Piko G scale items like the Taurus are roughly in 1:27 scale, pretty much the same as LGB standard gauge and slightly larger than Aristo's and USA Trains 1:29 scale.
And now Piko has some cars in 1:32 scale like MTH - I wouldn't really compare this to Märklin Spur 1, rather different target market.

Regards, Knut
