Does this one actually plow snow? The all plastic one famously didn't despite 4K price tag. :)

I would guess it has the same issues all scale models of the real thing do, that the snow granules do not scale down so the unit clogs.

There's one coming out that has two horizontal sets of wheels, like a home snow blower, and apparently it really works.

Just can't find the picture now.

yes it is an exciting thing innit?

I understand it does not blow snow.
and, given its price, and the state of repair parts, (at least in my experience with Marklin in the past few years)
......look no touch

Nope.
Early on, it was rumored that it would - but LGBM have said for some time that it will not/does not due to legal reasons. :rolleyes:

(Just like the GME 1:20.3 OM plow that initially shipped with the ability to plow snow, but that was removed in later versions due to - you guessed it - legal reason.)

Seriously, how hard is it to understand "keep you fingers out of the rotating blades"? :fubar:

Sadly, these days I can understand the fear of litigation - eventually some twit would let a little kid play with their 4000-quid model and then sue when the kid lost a couple of fingers.
