Borsig! Pioneer Locomotive Builder of Europe. When August Borsig opened his machinery building and iron casting company in 1837 in Berlin, probably no one suspected that out of it would come one of the largest locomotive builders in the world. As early as 1841 August Borsig built the locomotive BORSIG with the builder number 1 after painstaking investigation into the typical English and American locomotive types for that time. This locomotive impressed people with an improved valve gear and axle system and on July 21, 1841 won a contest against an English locomotive with a 10 minute head start. From this day on the victorious path of Borsig locomotive building began that ended in 1954 after more than 16,000 finished locomotives. During the era of steam locomotive building Borsig evolved all over Europe into the greatest and second largest locomotive builder worldwide. In honor of the 175th anniversary of the firm Borsig Märklin is issuing a five-part special series of sought after H0 models which will end in 2016 on the 175th anniversary of steam locomotive building in Germany. Every year a locomotive with exquisite detailing and technically premium features will be issued as a one-time series. Each of these models will be delivered with a decorative display case whose backdrop will be designed with a high quality relief of the characteristic Borsig gate. In addition to the relief, the display case will be provided with an engraved metal plate showing the builder number from the delivery book. Each locomotive will also include an excerpt from the Borsig delivery book printed on high quality paper to round out this theme.

The class 03 steam locomotives were actually an emergency solution to the existing class 01 units. The DRG's program of locomotive types from 1923/24 had only planned the class 01 with its 20 ton axle load as a standard design express locomotive. The bad financial condition of the DRG however did not permit quick rebuilding of lines to 20 ton standards, so that by the end of the Twenties no class 01 units could be used, particularly in the North German districts. Older provincial railroad locomotives were also not suitable, because many lines were only rated for an axle load of 17 tons. So, a "lightweight express locomotive" was ordered from the locomotive builders with a maximum axle load of 17.5 tons which then appeared for the first time starting in 1930 as the 03 with three pre-production locomotives delivered from Borsig. They were followed by another 295 units by 1937. In addition to Borsig, Krupp, Henschel, and BMAG were also involved in building the locomotive. The boiler and cylinders were smaller than on the 01; the bar frame was also lighter so that the locomotive had a wheel set running weight of a maximum of 18 tons. Starting with road number 03 123 the pumps were moved to the middle of the locomotive and from road number 03 163 on the locomotives had larger pilot wheels. In 1934, road number 03 154 was given streamlined cladding as an experiment. In 1936, road number 03 193 was also given complete streamlining as an experiment; this unit was kept in reserve at the same time in case the class 05 was out of service. These locomotives were preferred in Northern and Eastern Germany where numerous main lines were still not rated for 20 ton axle loads. After World War II, 86 units went to the DR in East Germany, 144 were acquired by the DB, and the rest went to the PKP (Polish State Railways) or remained missing. The DB units were stationed in Osnabrück, Hannover, Mönchengladbach, and Trier among other places and from 1960/61 on at the district in Rheine, the stronghold of the class 03. At the end of the Sixties the 03 (from 1968 on: 003) was superfluous. The last DB units were used by the Ulm District until 1972 on the main line to Friedrichshafen.

This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 22950.

One-time series for the anniversary "100 Years of the Gt 2x4/4".

Placed into service 100 years ago, it was viewed at the time as the largest, most powerful tank locomotive in the ?Old World? and formed the crowning point of Mallet locomotive design in Europe ? the Bavarian Gt 2x4/4. In the area of the Bavarian State Railroad there were three steeply graded routes in particular (Laufach ? Heigenbrücken, the Frankenwald Grade Pressig-Rothenkirchen ? Steinbach a.W. ? Probstzella, and the Schiefe Ebene from Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg to Marktschorgast) that presented special problems in the first years of the 20th century as a result of considerably increasing train loads. The available locomotives were not up to the task of hauling arriving freight trains further on their own or as one unit. At that time for example, around 670 ton trains had to be hauled over the mountain with two pusher locomotives ? a state of affairs that could not be sustained economically. For that reason the locomotive builder Maffei developed the Gt 2x4/4 by 1913 with its 0-8-8-0 wheel arrangement. This locomotive had two groups of driving wheels, each with four coupled sets of driving wheels. The drive was transmitted to the rails by means of the third set of driving wheels. The wheel base measured a total of 12,200 mm / 40 feet 4 inches. The super-heated steam compound cylinder layout required flexible steam lines to the low pressure cylinders for the front group of driving wheels. The 15 units delivered in 1913/14 were considerably faster, and up to three times as powerful as the freight locomotive in use up to that time so that measurable savings were possible in terms of locomotives and crews. These new locomotives showed their full potential performance as early as their first test run: A 1,000 ton heavy freight train consisting of the train and a class Gt 2x4/4 pusher locomotive made it from Pressig-Rothenkirchen to Steinbach a.W. in a phenomenal 38 minutes instead of the usual 80 minutes. Taken as a whole the test runs resulted in reductions in running times of more than 50%. In 1922, the Gt 2x4/4 acquired serious competition in the form of the Prussian T 20 which could do the same performance with less weight at 30 tons. For that reason improvements to the design were made on subsequent orders of another ten units of the Gt 2x4/4. These locomotives were equipped with more evaporative heating surface, a larger cylinder diameter on the high pressure cylinders, and a short smoke stack (without an attachment). The coal bunker was increased in size by half a ton and the axle load was increased along with the service weight. All 25 units were taken on by the DRG with road numbers 96 001-025.

A Bavarian freight car set to go with this locomotive can be found under item number 46082.
