Wir bauen eine Stadt – We build a City

The Märklin 44734 Clip-on block car isn’t a new idea. Lego and H0 scale model trains have a long tradition. Back in the 1950s LEGO Germany came up with a TV commercial showing LEGO building bricks combined with a Märklin model train layout.

This commercial dates to 1957, 2nd year of LEGO in Germany!
