Märklin: new container wagon set delivered

  • Created by Holger Späing

Märklin enriches modern freight traffic with a new car pack for the late German Federal Railroad.

At the turn of the month Märklin has delivered a container wagon pack (item no. 82663). Contrary to the official product description, this is a set of three freight cars from the stock of the late German Federal Railroad (Era V). Delivered is a four-axle container wagon Sgs 693, loaded with three 20' containers "Hamburg Süd" and two cars Lgjs 598, each carrying two tank containers of the company Bertschi AG. With this novelty Märklin enriches the modern freight traffic on Z-gauge layouts, as it has developed more and more from the seventies to today's dominant form of transporting freight between seaports and inland.
