Two new Märklin locomotives

  • Created by Redaktion

For friends of Era VI, Märklin delivered two locomotive models based on DB Fernverkehr prototypes in mid-May.

The 101 003-2 electric locomotive of the Deutsche Bahn AG in the special design "Design & Bahn" (item no. 88678) by the artist Gudrun Geiblinger, which is an advertising medium for a special exhibition of the DB Museum, as well as the TRAXX locomotive class 146.5 (88485) for the local train designated as IC2 in long-distance services, were delivered in mid-May. Both models from the Autumn 2021 novelties are powered by a bell-shaped armature motor and have warm white/red light changes using LEDs. We will discuss both deliveries in a little more detail in the May issue of Trainini.
