First Märklin deliveries in July

  • Created by Holger Späing

At the beginning of July, Märklin has four new items to report. We have already taken a look at them.

We are very enthusiastic about the electric locomotive class 139 of the German Federal Railroad (item no. 88386). The body is equipped with six panel vents and a central engine room window. The painting and printing are elaborate, sharp and in every other respect very well done. It seems to be an unwritten rule at Märklin that this class and an ocean-blue-ivory-coloured one belong together. One or the other customer might have wished for a chrome-oxide-green sister locomotive, possibly even labelled as E 40.11, or hoped for class 110 markings with this colour variant. Märklin states that the locomotive was in service in 1987.

The tiny small car Klv 20 from Wolff in Walsrode (item no. 88026) has also found its way to the dealers. The VW T1 combination vehicle from the former DB stock experienced its last period of service there and is classified in era IV. Unchanged, the model is equipped with a small bell-shaped armature motor that works via a belt drive. The housing is made of metal-filled plastic. For Swiss railway enthusiasts, the SBB class Re 460 electric locomotive (88468) is available. Here Märklin gives an operating condition around 2018. Like the last editions of this locomotive, it does without an electric overhead line function. Initially still without its "wagon escort" the express train luggage car Pw4 (87566) in the condition of the early Bundesbahn has set off on its journey. The Prussian design with train driver's cab is shown without the Ege biscuit this time.
