It has only come available in the U.K. this week and is not yet on the internet.
You could try telephoning your direct service in case it is the same in France.

Haven't you worked with playmobil in some way at some time, representing them in some capacity? Do you have enough of their ear to convince them to reissue a rare train parts replacement set (with parts from 3958, 4054, 4052, i.e. chimneys, roofs, cow catchers, throttles, levers, seats, light housings, train bits, all of the little lids for the 4052, and the tender doors etc. And maybe some luggage racks and poles). Even if everything was black it would still be nice.

The best way is for people who want the bits, is for them to write to Playmobil.

I am only one voice the more people write the more they know how many people are feeling the same.

Walt, you are hereby nominated as our community representative. Now you can tell them you speak for a large community.
I also vote that Gordon should set up a petition for us on some sort of petition site. I'm sure Xav could get those in France to support the initiative.

I have 5 extra battery holders (GREY). I purchased a lot when playmobile was getting out of the old style RC trains. These are the holders that fit the 1996 vs of the trains. I am looking for green and yellow chip sets for the trains, or other ideas on how to change freequencies. I am now running 8 trains, and need to manually turn on an off etc. Would consider trades :)

you can get yellow quartz from the 3670 RC car set.

You can check the chart here: Hints & Tips to see that yellow is 27.145 mhz and green is 27.195 mhz

If you search for "AM" the desired mhz frequency and "quartz" you should be able to find compatible replacements such as these for sale:

Yellow: 27mhz Transmitter Radio Receiver RC Crystal Pair 27 mhz 27.145 TX & RX Black AM 5055681315382 | eBay
green: 27mhz AM Transmitter and Radio RC Crystal Set 27 mhz 27.195 TX & RX Red Ch 10 5055681315290 | eBay
