Märklin Z-scale Diesel Locomotive: 88370
Prototype: Class 246 diesel locomotive ? TRAXX diesel. In 2006, the
firm Bombardier presented the class 246 at the Innotrans show. This
class is a diesel electric locomotive derived and developed directly
from the electric locomotives in the TRAXX family. This locomotive has
a maximum speed of 160 km/h / 100 mph, weighs 82 metric tons, has a
nominal performance of 2,200 kilowatts / 2,991 horsepower, and is planned
for passenger service. The state of Lower Saxony ordered 11 units that
have again been leased to the metronom Railroad Company. These locomotives
have the attractive blue and yellow paint scheme of the metronom trains
und together with the modern bi-level cars they stand for modern, punctual,
reliable service on regular schedules.
"Swinging in Time" "metronom" is the brand name for ten new bi-level trains operated by the metronom Railroad Company Ltd. in Uelzen, Germany. These very modern locomotives and cars can be recognized from a distance by their striking, sophisticated design in the colors of yellow, white, and blue. metronom has linked the cities of Hamburg and Bremen as well as Hamburg and Uelzen since December of 2003 as a regional express train railroad. The train name metronom symbolizes together with the logo of a swinging pendulum the schedule concept of departures on an hourly schedule. Musicians are familiar with a metronome as a beat generator. For that reason the slogan for the metronom trains is "Swinging in Time".
The 87299 car set goes perfectly with the 88370 locomotive.

Märklin Z-scale Electric Locomotive: 88492
Prototype: Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) class GG-1 heavy general-purpose
locomotive. 4-6-6-4 wheel arrangement. Special "Loewy" design
in Tuscan Red.
GG-1: The Pennsylvania Railroad did not introduce just a new form of motive power with the electrification of its main routes in the Thirties; it introduced a new dimension of power for locomotives. The prototype for the GG-1 provided over 4,600 horsepower (3,400 kilowatts) with its 6 twin motors and short term it produced almost 8,000 horsepower (6,000 kilowatts). With 208 tons on an articulated frame with a 4-6-6-4 wheel arrangement, this locomotive was designed to pull heavy freight trains of up to 6,000 tons and fast passenger trains at speeds up to 145 km/h / 91 mph. Appropriately simple adaptations to the gear drive were planned in the design of the locomotive. The French designer Raymond Loewy developed an unmistakable and unsurpassed shape for a locomotive from the prototype, which was similar to a "Crocodile" from the future. The timeless shape goes hand in hand with the indestructible technology for these locomotives, some of which were still in freight service at the turn of the century. Most of the GG-1's were painted in the very dark Brunswick Green. They were designed for general use, and the drive gear could be changed at short notice for freight or passenger service. Several locomotives were used exclusively for the Pennsylvania Railroad's deluxe "Congressional Limited" trains. They consistently kept their high speed gearing and were painted in Tuscan Red, the dignified reddish brown for the entire fleet of the earlier "Pennsy" express train passenger cars. Both versions kept the typical gold colored striping and later broad bands on the GG-1 paint scheme up to the merger creating the Penn Central and the later distribution to Amtrak (passenger trains) and Conrail (freight trains) in the Seventies.
