Default Free LGB 2008/2009 Catalog

The latest issue of LGB Depesche arrived Saturday. The mailing inludes a coupon for a free copy of the LGB 2008/2009 catalog. It must be redeemed at your "Authorized LGB Dealer" no later than October 31, 2008.

Today is Sunday so I haven't looked around yet, but I'm wondering now if there are still authorized dealers in the US who would be stocking these catalogs. My nearest store, Eastside Trains in Kirkland, WA, no longer features LGB on its web site.

You might email LGB and ask for a list of "Authorized LGB Dealers"... I'm wondering if even though they might be authorized, they may not have any catalogs.

Let us know how you fare.

Regards, Greg

The question where and how to get this free LGB 2008 catalogue in the US (and Canada) has come up a few times in the last couple of days on the LGB Family forum and several people have written to LGB already.

I expect there will be a reply Monday or Tuesday - I'll post whatever I hear on mls.

Regards, Knut

I received a reply re the 2008 LGB catalogue for North America.

The message essentially was that Maerklin/LGB is aware of the issue and is currently evaluating a number of different options how club members in North America will be able to obtain their copy of the catalogue.
However, the final decision how this will be handled has not yet been made.
As Dave Buffington used to say: "Stay tuned"

Good one Stan, I don't think anyone can fill Dave's shoes. He was pretty much "Mr. LGB" for the US and Canada.

In any case - if I hear more about the 2008 catalogue delivery situation (or if anyone else does), posting it here would be appropriate as well as on the LGB Family forum.

The people at LGB in Germany that I talk to are very interested in the US market - no question about that, but they don't make the final decisions as to when and how and how to come to an agreement with LGBoA.

Best regards, Knut

Hi Knut,


I'm still "tuned", but haven't heard anything. Have you heard more? I doubt that I'll renew my membership if I'm not able to get the catalogs...

Regards,

Stan

Stan -

The only thing so far is that the expiry date shown on the coupon will be extended by a substantial period.
Everyone who has a coupon will be able to trade it in for a free catalogue.


The new LGB catalogue is very nice, but there are no new items in the catalogue that are not in the 2008 new items flyer or on the downloadable pdf file on the LGB website that shows availability of each item.

All of the available and planned new 2008 LGB items (engines and cars) are also shown on the Gartenbahn database at www.gbdb.info

Regards, Knut

The end date lets them off the hook.
