Walthers Named Exclusive North American
Distributor For Marklin / Trix

Wm. K. Walthers, Inc. has been appointed the exclusive North American distributor for Marklin Inc. A formal announcement
 will be made during the Nuremberg Toy Fair, where staff from both companies will
be on-hand to answer questions and review the new Marklin and Trix product assortments.

Dealers will notice some changes in the near future. Current inventory and warranty work
will be transferred to Walthers; Marklin Inc. will continue to process orders for standard
line items until the transition is complete. Marklin staff will continue providing sales
and marketing support to authorized North American Marklin and Trix dealers.

Dr. Tom Catherall will continue to provide technical support for the Marklin and
Trix Systems products and write the bi-monthly Digital Club newsletter.
Customer service for the various Club programs will be handled by the Marklin Inc. staff.

"This is an exciting opportunity for both companies and
we are delighted to be working with Marklin." said Phil Walthers.
 "Walthers expertise as the leading distributor of model railroad products coupled with Marklin's support staff will
 provide a high level of customer service, and a foundation to expand sales and market awareness for these very special products."

Märklin takes over LGB manufacturer

German model-railroad manufacturer Märklin in late July announced the purchase
of Ernst Paul Lehmann Patentwerke, the Nuremberg-based manufacturer
of LGB trains. Terms of the purchase have not been disclosed.

Märklin was itself purchased by investment group Kingsbridge Capital Ltd. a year ago.
The Göppingen-based company says it will produce the large-scale LGB
models within its own production network.
