Posted By UncleHans on 01/06/2009 7:29 PM Does anyone have any experience with Marklin G scale switches. UncleHans (to too many nieces and nephews! :)" src="http://www.mylargescale.com/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/smile.gif" align="absMiddle" border="0" />




Sir - Maerklin does not make 'G scale' track of any format. Their trackwork is Gauge 1 low-profile European standard-gauge track using code 197 rail section. It is entirely unsuitable for the much coarser flanges found on much of the larger scale models, including LGB with its enormous flanges [LGB track has a profile of 335 or thereabouts]

If you are intending to run any other than Gauge 1 models with fine-scale flanges and wheel profiles on your Maerklin track then you will be very disappointed.
