Prices do not include shipping from ToToTrains to you. Applicable taxes apply.
ToToTrains, LLC is not liable for typo's or any change in price or delivery due to manufacture's decision(s).

I will be placing orders for the fall items as they come in because Märklin (and its distributor) work on a first come first served basis. Please place your orders as early as possible since all of the items are either MHI (Exclusive) items or "Limited" items (except for the signals), which seems to be the case every year with the Summer and Fall items . All of the MHI items will have the recognizable MHI logo:


ToToTrains is the only Märklin Store left in a 6 state area that carries MHI items and stocks a large variety of new and pre-owned Märklin trains and track!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like additional information.

The "Koploper". In the mid-Seventies, the Dutch State Railways needed new material to modernize its express passenger service. Trains with flexible utilization are required in this densely populated country in order to manage service in the urban areas. As a result, from 1977 to 1994, a total of 144 powered rail cars, the "Koploper" family, were placed into service. These powered rail cars could be separated and coupled at stops quickly and easily. It also became important that passengers be able to change from one unit to the other, when the train was in motion. The engineer's cabs were thus quickly raised up one level and these powered rail cars were equipped with crossovers at the ends. This feature gives the "Koplopers" a brawny, unusual look. The "Koplopers" were built by the firms Talbot, CEM Oerlikon, and Holec, and were designated by the Dutch State Railways as the classes 4000 and 4200, which differed from one another in their motors, among other things. A short while ago the "Koplopers" underwent modernization and were equipped with air conditioning and facilities for handicapped people. These powered rail cars can reach 160 km/h / 100 mph and are run in the classic NS paint scheme, but they have also been used as advertising surfaces such as for the Olympic Games in 2008 in Beijing. The "Koplopers" are certainly a successful development in rail vehicle technology and their unusual appearance is clearly leaving its mark on passenger service in the Netherlands.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 22262.

NEW MÄRKLIN H0 SIGNALS
Stop-and-Go on the Rails. Just like the real life prototype, signals fulfill important control and safety functions on a model railroad too. Märklin signals control rail traffic, because they not only show prototypical signal aspects, they also directly influence train movements. When set for stop, they switch the current off in the center conductor and the catenary in their area; the train remains stopped. For "go slow" or "go normally" they switch the current on; the train runs through or starts up again. If you want to be even more realistic, you set up distant signals at an appropriate distance. They are coupled to their home signals and display appropriate signal aspects. Semaphore/target signals can be controlled conventionally using the 72760 control box and in the digital system using the CS II, MS II, CS I, or the 6040 Keyboard. These newly designed semaphore/target signals have the mfx, Motorola, and DCC digital formats. The mechanisms for these signals are servo drives. The speed of the semaphore/target movement can be programmed. The constant light source is done with LEDs. A below-baseboard mounting kit is included with every signal to have the signals look realistic on your layout.

The "Silberlinge / Silver Coins" - A DB Success Story. The German Federal Railroad car designated as "Silberling / Silver Coin" is a car adhering to the UIC-X guidelines. It is 26.4 meters / 86 feet 7-3/8 inches long and has 2 entry areas with double doors. The name derives from the car bodies constructed of polished stainless steel. The car group "n", the official designation for the "Silberling", was purchased in a group of 5,000 units between 1961 and 1980 and in different designs. For a long time it was the most widely used car in commuter service on the DB. Depending on the design, these cars tip the scales at 31-40 metric tons and are authorized for a maximum speed of 120-140 km/h / 75-88 mph. The pure 2nd class car has seating for 96, in the mixed class car there is seating for 30 in 1st class and for 46 in 2nd class. The German Federal Railroad placed different cab control cars into service for push/pull operation, which was often done with the class E 41/141. The "Rabbit Hutch", a cab control car with extremely cramped space for the locomotive engineer was replaced by the later "Karlsruher Kopf" type cab control car. This cab control car also had a baggage area, but more importantly a modern, generously arranged engineer's cab. The name derives from the maintenance facility in Karlsruhe, where the cab control cars were rebuilt. The "Silberling" was a universal car, from commuter service to express train, even used as reserve cars in Inter-Zone trains to Berlin. The "n" cars had steam, diesel, and electric locomotives for motive power, and, like many other DB cars, were run in different paint schemes. However, although they have been ignored in mint green, "traffic red", or countless forms of Graffiti, they have remained the "Silberlinge" in popular usage. Presently, these cars are in used on the DB AG in the "traffic red" paint scheme, and similar classes based on the construction principles for the "Silberlinge" can be found in Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Poland, for example.
