Not so fast Hammacher Schlemmer…

This Christmas season, we have received a number of Hammacher Schlemmer catalogs. Claiming to be America’s longest running catalog, it is filled with pages of unique gifts including quite a few toys and items we hobbyists can really appreciate. What caught my attention, beside the authentic Bavarian Lager brewing barrel, was the train set on page 11.

Yes available only from Hammacher Schlemmer is the worlds’s smallest electric train set at a scale of 1:220! It is a Christmas set that comes with an oval of track, steam locomotive and three freight cars. Plus it has a number of Christmas accessories with the set. And did I mention the set was made in Germany?

So what is missing here?... Now's the time to subscribe to Ztrack Magazine to read the rest, and to see what's new in Z scale this month!
