"The TrainYard"

Well, I guess Christmas is back in the frame and would like to thank all the folk who have supported “The TrainYard” particularly following Jean’s Stroke. Jean is progressing well and no doubt the new year will see more progress.
With the new direct shipping, new items land within a week, creating much new admin.
New Items 2024
The New Items for 2024 will be published on January 8th. The first glimpse is 38462 & 38463!!
We are looking to move “The TrainYard” to a more convenient address soon, but had to move to the factory due to the circumstances.
New arrivals recently have been the amazing “Albatross” Steam Locomotive and a few others with technology beyond my age group.
The new locos & wagons have been great to actually arrive without delays, with another load from Märklin due within a week. Includes the latest “Surprise Model of the new Br02 with the additional Tender. The new Bridge System, Beer Garden and many Figurines from Noch have arrived with the Crosswalk Bridge, due in January.
The Flying Scotsman has been amazing! Selling out at Maerklin in March within 2 weeks. 12 items were delivered to ourselves and sold out months ago. Managed to retain one for myself!!!
Website Development
Currently working “hard” on the website to ensure accuracy, good pictures and a great newsletter!.
“TrainYard” Group & Rationalisation
We have 108 members on the WhatsApp Group. Should you wish to be added, please drop a message to Gavin.
The shop presently stocks approximately 2500 items and the masterfile a further 2500 items. Facilitating orders off the website, and placing orders, as many customers currently do.
Maerklin; Trix; LGB; Noch; Faller and Viessmann will be brands especially concentrated on into the future. Current stock of many brands like Atlas; Woodland Scenics; Brawa and others are being discounted to clear. Sadly the days of HobbyWorld cannot be repeated at this stage.
Some of the discounts offered are as high as 50%. Please visit and select items required. A vast stock of “N” Guage items is included
The “ToyFair”
The “ToyFair” in Nuernberg is again being held in Jan/Feb 2024 and plans are again to attend. The 2023 show, first after Covid was not fully supported and many well known brands were not present, but talk is that all is back to normal!!
An outstanding feature of 2023, was the signal development from Viessmann and their road systems. Lighting & Motion Systems of many, particularly Noch & Faller was very innovative.
TrainBay.com
As all are aware “The TrainYard” solely markets new products, but we have many enquiries to market, or sell used items in all conditions.
Previously we have mentioned the design of the website to facilitate a professional buy/sell option for used model trains and related items, with a professional paygate to facilitate legitimately handled payments on behalf of Bidders and Offerors.
The system is ready to be launched and available for all to use. The primary criteria is that items advertised shall be exactly as advertised and confirmed prior to loading.
Launch of the webpage will be advertised shortly.
Starter Sets
As all are aware, the purpose and strategy of “The TrainYard” is to bring new folk to the hobby and assist in the learning curves of all facets. With the new arrivals we have included many “Starter Sets” with the latest technology for 3 & 5 year-olds as well as the “mature” starters, which is considered as the best way to commence “Playing Trains”. Hence, if are wishing to offer a gift to a young person, this is the best way!!
Trix
We have discovered many folk are not aware that the Trix system is as technologically capable as Maerklin, but with the use of Direct Current(DC). The system can also operate most of the many other brands on the market that also use a two-rail system. It is definitely an intention to widen the stock of Trix items and most of the digital items under the Maerklin label can also be utilised in Trix operation.

We trust all will have a blessed Christmas and prosperous New Year
