The Nuremberg Toy Fair

Scott and Milinda attended the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Germany from February 7th to the 14th. Over 80,000 people from all over the world attended and over 1,000,000 products were on display! We met with the folks from MTH, Bachmann, Marklin, LGB, Aristo-Craft, Walthers, and Piko. We checked out the booths of everyone else. There were 17 huge buildings with one devoted totally to trains! The majority of the train exhibitors were European HO manufacturers, but there was just about everything you can imagine from Z to G. Look for some interesting things coming down the pike from what we found on the trip! We have managed to loose most of our pictures, but here is the ICE train that we took from Frankfurt to Nuremberg
