Stuttgart station appears at auction

13 September 2010Written by ATG Reporter

THE October 8 toy sale at Nagel in Stuttgart will include this Märklin gauge-1 model of the Stuttgart train station.

Measuring 3ft 10in (1.16m), it is a topical entry as protestors fight to preserve the landmark building in Germany, a 1928 modernist classic designed by Paul Bonatz (1877-1956).

As part of a regeneration project for Stuttgart, architects propose, among other things, to tear down the side wings of the train station.

The estimate for this remarkably accurate tinplate model is €2500.
