For many years it has been a nice tradition to present the new museum wagon for the next year shortly before Christmas. On 15 December 2017, it was finally time again. The new wagon was presented as part of a great event. Again a company from the Göppingen region was serving as the model. The company Confiserie Bosch from Uhingen has assumed the sponsorship for the year 2018.

The packaging of the museum wagon itself is a real eye-catcher. The wagon is stored inside a metal box reminding of the boxes formerly used for sending the tasty Vanilla Wibele. The wagon itself is the model of a powdered freight silo wagon with access ladders and a brakeman‘s platform. A model a Magirus short-platform round-hood truck with tarpaulin is also part of it. In this way, also the new Märklin museum wagon.

This is what the great Märklin museum wagon 2018 looks like. will become a desirable collector‘s item just as its predecessors (item no. 48118).

What is a cookie under a tree? A shady spot.

A fly passes a spider web by a hair‘s breadth. Spider: „You just wait, tomorrow I will catch you.“ Fly: „You lose, I am a one-day wonder.“.

„I think my mother doesn‘t understand children!“, Marie says. „What makes you think that?“, aunt Emma asks. „When I‘m awake, she sends me to bed. And when I‘m tired, she wakes me up.“

The mother criticizes her son: „Instead of sitting in front of the TV set, you should better help your father with your homework!“
