“Lange Heinrich“ / “Long Henry“. Embedded in the Northwest German plains area is the Emsland area, a region rich in bodies of water and moors. At the start of the Seventies until the end of steam locomotive operation on the DB in October of 1977, it became the Mecca for railroad enthusiasts from all over the world. The last steam giants on the German Federal Railroad ran with passenger trains to Norddeich Mole, and heavy freight trains were in operation between Emden and the large industrial centers on the Rhine and Ruhr. The star on the Emsland line was the "Lange Heinrich" / "Long Henry", a 4,000 metric ton ore train between the Emden switch yard and Rheine, always with two of the last great freight locomotives from the classes 042, 043, and 044 as motive power. The high-capacity hopper cars were loaded with imported raw material in Emden's outer harbor and were hauled by steam and diesel locomotives to the switch yard and there were assembled into long unit trains of 2,000 and 4,000 metric tons. The power output of one of the powerful locomotives was just enough to bring the load for the 2,000 metric ton trains over the lightly ascending exit onto the mostly flat 140 km / 88 mile route to Rheine. The "Langer Heinrich" trains were twice as heavy and required the use of two locomotives, which got underway after a furious start, often with slipping wheels. The trains usually had oil-fired class 043 locomotives from the Emden and Rheine Districts as motive power. The classes 042 and 043 were often used in combination, occasionally two of the class 042, and quite rarely the last of the coal-fired class 044 helped along with the other two classes. The latter two classes were equipped for oil firing during an overhaul and had entered the motive power roster at Rheine in 1967. There were many locations along the route for taking impressive train photographs. A favorite among knowledgeable photographers was a bridge at Aschendorf, south of Papenburg. The trains could be photographed in almost their entire length on a curve leading to the right. Even more ideal and probably the best place in the Ems area was south of Lathen. There, the route ran between two sand dunes in a curve to the left and offered an unobstructed view of a complete 4,000 metric ton train under the best lighting conditions. A requirement was of course good weather, exact knowledge of the schedule for the trains, and being there early in the morning, when the sun was still low on the horizon. Long before the train entered this section of the route, a distance column of smoke and the unmistakable rhythm of the exhaust announced its approach. The waiting was then rewarded with an unforgettable view of the entire consist from the front of the locomotive to the end of the train consisting of fifty cars. (From drawings by Horst J. Obermayer).

The locomotive for prototypical double heading is available as item no. 37883; 5 additional ore cars are available as a set, item no. 46255.

Märklin H0: 26538 Commuter Train from Luxembourg: Electric Locomotive with 3 Bi-Level Cars

Prototype: Luxembourg State Railways (CFL) class 4000 general-purpose locomotive. Dual system locomotive with 4 pantographs. The locomotive is based on the German class 185. 2 commuter cars, 2nd class, and 1 commuter car, 1st and 2nd class.

Model: The locomotive is constructed of metal with many cast-in details. The total design of the locomotive is ideal for model railroad operation. The locomotive has a digital decoder and a special can motor. 4 axles powered through cardan shafts. 2 traction tires. The headlights are LED's, they will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. The locomotive has adjustable running characteristics. 4 pantographs that can be raised and lowered (they are not wired to take power from catenary). All 3 passenger cars come in the latest paint scheme and have different car numbers. Total length over the buffers 102.4 cm / 40-5/16".

How Close Is Luxembourg? The relatively small area of the country and the intensive economic integration with Lorraine in France, Saarland and the Rhenish Palatinate in Germany, and Wallonie in Belgium have resulted in the fact that commuter service for Luxembourg now means for the most part international service. The CFL's trains are coordinated with the neighboring DB, SNCF, and SNCB/NMBS railroads, often even jointly operated. The class 4000 locomotives from the TRAXX family of motive power were initially leased and then bought, and they are ideal as electric cross-border locomotives for this special set of railroad service relationships.

The "Rheinpfeil". The prototype for our train with the add-on cars is the famous "Rheinpfeil", which ran as Trans Europe Express 27/28 between Dortmund and Munich between 1965 and 1971. As early as 1952 this name stood for the first DB F-Zug express trains, which ran with 1st class seating only starting in 1956. From 1958 on, the "Rheinpfeil" served as F 21/22 on the route Dortmund-Munich, which was later incorporated into the TEE network. In the Seventies, the "Rheinpfeil" became InterCity 108/109 and ran between München and Hanover.

Additional cars to lengthen the train are available individually under item nos. 43855 and 43865.
