Märklin 1: 54293 Electric Locomotive
Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 144 passenger locomotive. Former class E 44, built starting in 1932.
Model: The locomotive is constructed of metal with applied plastic
parts. It has an mfx digital decoder, controlled high-efficiency propulsion,
and a sound effects generator. The locomotive can be operated with
AC power, DC power, or with Märklin Delta, Märklin Digital,
or Märklin Systems. 2 motors. 2 axles powered. The headlights
will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally.
The electric locomotive operating sound effects, a whistle, and the
Telex couplers can be controlled digitally with a 6021 Control Unit
or Marklin Systems. Additional operating sound effects as well as
the acceleration and braking delay can be controlled with Marklin
Systems. The locomotive has older design pantographs. The engineer's
cabs have interior details and doors that can be opened. The locomotive
has separately applied metal grab irons. Minimum radius for operation
600 mm / 23-5/8". Length over the buffers 47.8 cm / 18-13/16".
77 Years of the E 44. After an interruption due to the great economic crisis, the electrification of the German State Railroads network was continued starting in 1930. New, powerful locomotives were needed for the new routes. In the meantime, the German railroad industry had developed new concepts and prototypes for modern general-purpose locomotives. This design from Siemens showed clear progress compared to the provincial railroad designs of before that had been merely developed further. This unit was designed as a lightweight, general-purpose locomotive and was built on a welded frame, mounted on trucks with integrated buffer beams and powered with axle-suspended motors. This gave this compact locomotive a total weight of 78 metric tons without the need for pilot trucks and still below the critical 20 metric ton limit for axle loads. The modern motors output of 2,200 kilowatts / 2,950 horsepower was available directly at the axles without the need for an expensive mechanism. The maximum speed reached on level track was 90 km/h / 56 mph. The first unit was successfully tested and placed into service by the German State Railroad as early as 1930 as the E 44 001. Additional regular production locomotives with a maximum speed of 80 km/h / 50 mph were ordered immediately, initially for the route from Stuttgart to Augsburg (with the Geislingen Grade). The German State Railroad purchased a total of 174 regular production locomotives, of which 45 remained in East Germany. Seven more locomotives were built new for the German Federal Railroad and several were equipped with push/pull controls or resistance brakes. The indestructible E 44 was in regular use well into the 1980s at the end as the 144 (DB) and 244 (DR).
Märklin 1: 55004 Live Steam Locomotive
Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 44 heavy freight locomotive
with a tender. Standard design locomotive in the early postwar version
with large smoke deflectors.
Important Notes: This locomotive may only be operated outdoors. This locomotive may only be operated by adults. The locomotive boiler must never be fired up without a sufficient supply of water in it. Dirty track caused by residues of steam and oil cannot be avoided. Depending on the load, a full boiler of water allows you to run the locomotive from about 20 to 30 minutes. Cars with regular Märklin claw couplers can be coupled to the locomotive. This model can be used in most countries in Europe, but can not be sold in the USA.

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class V 60 diesel switch
engine and German Federal Railroad (DB) class 78 tank locomotive.
Commuter train consisting of 2 type B3yg 761 and AB3yg 756 rebuild
cars. Freight train consisting of 1 type OOtz 50 hopper car and 1
type Omm 53 gondola.
Märklin 1: 58402 Set with 3 Swiss Freight Cars
Prototype: Different car types used on the Swiss Federal Railways
(SBB/CFF/FFS). Type K3 boxcar with a brakeman's cab. Type L6 gondola
with a brakeman's cab. Type P wine barrel car, privately owned car
painted and lettered for the firm C.A. Egli AG Zürich. Older
designs as they looked in the Thirties.
The classic SBB 2-axle freight cars were built from the turn of the last century to the Fifties using similar designs. Improvements in load capacity, the running gear, or the brakes were introduced as the level of railroad technology progressed. Long freight trains made up of short cars left their stamp on Swiss railroad freight service over the decades naturally, also on the Gotthard line, pulled by the famous "Crocodile".
These old-timer freight cars make up a typical train for the brown "Crocodile", item no. 55562.Price: $594.00
