The Mini Club was brought to the market by Märklin in 1972. The scale is 1:220 and at the time it was the smallest model train in the world.

My Parents got us one for Christmas and we set-up a rather large mountainous landscape in the basement with 4 turnouts, one xcrossing, one signal, a railroad crossing, three or four houses, many pinetrees and a dozen deers. The houses had lights and there was one street lamp with lights. We had two steam engines, three passenger cars and four cargo cars.

Sticking to German Christmas traditionas where a model train almost has to be under the Christmas tree, we got a small Mini Club landscape in a custom made box in teh Philippines. In terms of lighting it is a lot more sophisticated. It also has more houses and more people and animal figures. Below is a brief video taken on Christmas 2015.
