Garden Railways in ZENNER-SHOP for all ages

It began three years ago on Ebay with this locomotive to which NewRay / Dickie steam engine, rebuilt from us mít LGB couplings.

First it was simple models, but now we also have very high-quality products for the garden railway in the program

The ZENNER Beteiligungen GmbH in Saarbrücken has this store set the www.zennershop.de after we recorded in a short time on Ebay great success. Today, this store is one of the leading online shop with more than 500 items. Content is also uploaded partly as Zenner shop on Ebay and Amazon. We complement with him Ebay and Amazon- program has. The ZENNER SHOP for GARTENBNHNEN in its sales program brands LGB, PIKO, Train Line45, Playmobil, Liliput Bachmann, NewRay, Dickie, Train, Hobbex, Jordan, ESU, Massoth, Boermann and others. ZENNER has placed among other things one of the priorities on radio loco and WLAN radio locos. It can be both battery-operated locomotives, as well as those who receive your electricity from the track, are managed together. With Kids Train we have a category introduced responsive even small children and smaller purse. Cheaper manufacturers like Dickie, NewRay, Bachmann then work together with LGB. The program is supplemented with own wagon models. Another focus is the adaptation of the various couplings and track systems to each other.
This steam locomotive with LGB couplings pulls back a Marklin trailers track 1, the LGB scored couplings. Conversely, brands are rebuilt on Märklin track 1 now also LGB followers and followers of other G-gauge.

BUSINESS IDEA: goal and business idea is to run for young and old worlds of the track G together, so different brands combines can run on a system. ZENNER offers www.zennershop.de or in Zenner shop on Ebay and Amazon selected trailers, locomotives and rails of different manufacturers and aftermarket replacement parts and models from their own production.

Now everything the track II 64mm, the standard gauge in a scale of 1: 22.5 to 1:28

our company is already a member of IG Spur II 64mm and become since new producers of articles in this gauge.
We have begun working more closely with Train Line45, Heyn, GRS, Hilbert and Boermann in track II area. Our goal is, the track II 64mm to make known. Mostly we adhere strictly to the track II degree. But we also build locomotives and cars from LGB, Train Line45 and Piko on track II (64mm) and fit them on request to the prescribed end beam for two buffers IG track II. We do this because otherwise the business costs in the correct scale1: 22.5 would not affordable.
