37022  BR 53 "K" Borsig Steam Locomotive with Tender "mfx"

One time series in 2004


37991  Union Pacific "Big Boy" Steam Locomotive
with Tender and "mfx" decoder

 Metal frame and locomotive body Digital locomotives with high-efficieny propulsionSupports extended motorola digital functions Built-in sound effects circuit Dual headlights that change over with the direction of travel Marklin close couplers in standerd coupler pocket with guide mechanism  Built-in interior details  Built-in interior lighting  New organization of European railroads and modernization 1945 - 1970

Prototype: US Class 4000 heavy goods locomotive "Big Boy" of the union Pacific Railroad (UP). Reproduction of the locomotive road number. “4012” circa 1960. The 4000 is considered to be the largest steam locomotive in the world.

Model: With digital decoder, regulated high-power engine, noise generator and further auxiliary functions. High performance motor with bell-shaped armature in the boiler.  8 powered axles, 4 traction tires.  Articulated chassis fitted with springs.  Headlamps, tender and number boards with maintenance-free LED can be digitally controlled. 2 smoke-units (Seuthe #11 -- Marklin #7226) can be added, contacts already installed for instant use. Headlights, number board and flight compartment lighting are on in conventional operation and can be digitally controlled.  Speed-dependent steam locomotive noise, bell, whistle, braking noise as well as acceleration and braking delay can be controlled with control unit 6021 or with mobile station 60652. With the central station 60212, additional sounds can be controlled such as: air pump, which valves and the injector, auxiliary blower, rail joints, compressed air brakes, the cab radio and even the noise of the original claw clutch when coupling are called up.  Locomotive contains an efficient loudspeaker in the tender with adjustable volume. Front-end coupler can be inserted as desired.  Close-couplers between locomotive and tender.  Adjustable steam pipes.  Metal hand rails.  Many set details. Figures (engineer, coal man) are attached in the driving compartment.  Length over buffers 46.5 cm.

The locomotive 37991 in the above described execution is manufactured as a one-time series only for Insider members.

The 25 machines of the 4000 class are considered to be the largest ever steam engines of the world built as a series.  But the also officially used surname "Big Boy" sounds rather modest.  These approximately 40 m (131 ft.) long giants brought an achievement of over 6.200 HP with four enormous cylinders. Particularly imposing the extremely loud noise this locomotive generated.  With new sound electronics, this H0 model faithfully reproduces the typical sound of the large steam locomotives as well as a selection of background noises which can be controlled individually.  The full range of acoustic functions is available via use of the central station from the Marklin Systems program.

Operational notes: While this locomotive can be run on curved tracks with a radius as small as 360 mm (5100, R1, etc.), Marklin recommends the use of larger radii curves.  Due to the overhang of the long boiler, signals, catenary masts, bridge piers, tunnel portals, etc. must be situated a sufficient distance from the track.  Due to the weight of the locomotive, it is recommended that all tracks be fastened securely.  The locomotive should only be used on turntables and transfer tables for the purposes of passing "over" or "through” these accessories.

with Culemeyer Kaelble roller bed & towing vehicle

Model: Length over buffers 56 mm. Tractor made of metal with appropriate road scooter trailer. Packed in metal box with the designation „Anhalter Bahnhof“.

Banana cars serve not only for the transport of tropical fruits, but also for their normal maturing process. By using proper ventilation and keeping the car's interior at a moderate temperature during its trip to the to the market, the bananas can be shipped while still green while their delicate insides ripen to their gold-yellow color. In order to avoid an interruption of this process, in former times, the whole car was often carried by the destination railroad line to its final destination on the road.
