Road No. 05 002 World Record in the Olympic Year. In 1936, the highest level of performance was expected of and offered by more than the Olympic Games in Berlin; the German State Railroad Company (DRG) also made everyone sit up and take notice with a world record for steam locomotives. On May 11, 1936, the streamlined steam locomotive with road number 05 002 reached a speed of 200.4 km/h / 125.25 mph on a level route between Hamburg and Berlin near Friesack with a performance measured at 3,400 horsepower. This unbelievable act of power was the consequence of bitter competition between the types of motive power, a competition that broke out due to the fast combustion powered rail cars and the increasingly more powerful electric locomotives. The Borsig designers in Berlin were responsible for the class 05, of which only two units were built however. A third, modified unit came later. These 26,265 mm / 86 foot 2 inch long and 129.9 metric ton heavy locomotives with a driving wheel diameter of 2,300 mm / 90-1/2 inches were given a full streamlined cladding, i.e. the sleek outer skin surrounded the entire locomotive and tender and extended down almost to the railhead. The running gear was accessible by means of roll-down covers. A striking red paint scheme with discrete striping enhanced this immense locomotive visually, and it quickly became a symbol for progress and speed. The prestigious world record for road no. 05 002 was broken two years later however by the British locomotive “Mallard” (LNER class A4) with 201.2 km/h / 125.75 mph and a short term peak of 202.6 km/h / 126.63 mph on a lightly sloping route. After World War II, the three class 05 locomotives lost their streamlining and were indispensable for a few more years as motive power for F-Zug long distance expresses; the final end came only with the introduction of the V 200.


In Honor of the Old Master. Carl Bellingrodt, born April 7, 1897 in Cologne, was undoubtedly one of the most famous German railroad photographers. He began to photograph various subjects as early as before World War I, but soon specialized in landscapes and above all railroad photography. Although he was a government official and pursued photography as a hobby, he amassed more than 30,000 images over the course of his activity, and many of them rank among the classic masterpieces. In addition to his systematically generated groups of images of entire classes of locomotives, his images of the railroad in a landscape as well as his extremely dense photographs of stations with their typical environment achieved near cult status. In this manner Carl Bellingrodt set the style for many other railroad photographers, many of whom still make the pilgrimage to the beloved “Bellingrodt photography sites” in order to photograph the trains of our time in the classic perspective of the old master. Märklin has been carrying out plans for a special five-part series of sought-after H0 models in memory of this railroad photograph pioneer, who died on September 24, 1971 in Wuppertal and who will certainly live on in the memory of many people for a long time. One locomotive per year has been produced as a limited series in exquisite detailing and with premium technical features. Each of these models is delivered with a decorated display case with the Bellingrodt photograph of the locomotive in question mounted on the back wall of the case. In front of this in the lower part of the case is a glass display floor on which the model can be attractively presented. This allows a direct comparison between the Bellingrodt photograph of the prototype locomotive and the exquisite reproduction as a model. The glass front wall offers effective protection against dust.

Class 4000 – The Big Boy in America. The double-heading of locomotives or the use of locomotives in pusher service was cost intensive and used a lot of crews. From the Forties on, the Union Pacific Railroad (UP) needed an extremely powerful freight locomotive especially for use on the grades of the Rocky Mountains in order to reduce to a minimum or even avoid using locomotives in situations as mentioned above. The new locomotives had to be capable of relatively high speeds so that long routes could be covered without changing locomotives. Otto Jabelmann, an experienced designer at American Locomotive Company (ALCO), developed a gigantic, articulated locomotive that entered the annals of railroad history as the "Big Boy" and that more than earned its nickname. Twenty-five units of this 40,500 mm / 132 foot 10-7/16 inch, 350.2 ton, 4,560 kilowatt / 6,115 horsepower, and 112 km/h / 70 mph fast 4-cylinder locomotive steamed through the wide expanses of the USA between 1941 and 1957. The Big Boys had a 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement and the equally massive looking tender carried 24.5 tons of coal and 94.6 cubic meters / 24,991 gallons of water. The Big Boy show its strengths on the notorious grades in the Wastach Mountains or on Sherman Hill (1.14% and 1.55% maximum grade), and the locomotive fulfilled all of the expectations set for it. Six thousand ton freight trains were not rare in everyday operation and an experiment on level terrain showed that "Big Boy" was capable of pulling a 25,000 ton train on its own. Even on Sherman Hill this immense locomotive could still haul 3,600 tons on its own over this difficult route. With a full load the coal consumption was naturally also gigantic. A stoker automatically fed enough coal from the tender to the 14 square meter / 150.70 square foot grate in the firebox. No fireman would have been in a position to master this with pure muscle power. By the mid-Fifties, powerful diesel locomotives were gradually replacing the class 4000 steam locomotives, which has already become legendary in their "life times", so that it's not surprising that a total of 8 "Big Boys" , unfortunately not operational, have been preserved in museums to remind people of the great past for steam motive power in the USA.

Notes for operating the locomotive: The locomotive can be used on curved track with a radius of 360 mm / 14-3/16" or more, however we recommend larger radii. Signals, catenary masts, bridge railings, tunnel portals, etc. must have installed for sufficient clearance on curves. The track must be well mounted due to the heavy weight of the locomotive. The locomotive can only be run through a turntable or transfer table. Products bearing (insert marks, e.g. Southern Pacific, Union Pacific, Chicago and North Western) are made under trademark license from the Union Pacific Railraod Company.

The Class 23. Right after World War II the new German Federal Railroad still had to rely on steam motive power. Henschel developed the class 23 to cover the demand for passenger and lightweight steam locomotives. The 105 units built from 1950 to 1959 had a 2-6-2 wheel arrangement and were equipped with a welded frame, boiler, and tender. The maximum speed was 110 km/h / 69 mph forward and 85 km/h / 53 mph in reverse, which was enough to equip several locomotives with shuttle train controls. These locomotives performed their task without a great deal of fanfare in the areas of service planned for them. On January 1, 1968, the class 23 was changed to the computer designation class 023 and the last units of this class remained in service on the German Federal Railroad network until 1976. During this period they were assigned to the Crailsheim District. Road number 23 105 also wrote German railroad history. It was the last German Federal Railroad steam locomotive put into service, which lent it museum status. However, it was a victim of the catastrophic fire on October 17, 2005 at the Transportation Museum in Nürnberg, where it was heavily damaged. There are several examples of the class 23 preserved as museum locomotives, some of them even operational, due to the good condition of all of these locomotives, when they were retired from regular service.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item no. 22230.
