In 1935 Märklin started with the production line gauge 00.
The first steam loco built 1935 in gauge 00 is the R 700

This loco from 1935 was available with an electric reversing unit

and with a manual reversing unit

The tender of the 1935 loco has KK1 and “closed” axis, whereas the tender 1936 and following years had “open axis”

In 1937 the coupling system of the tender was changed from KK 1 to KK 2.1
The fame of the loco , produced 1935 to 1937, was very thin (see pic)

In 1938 this frame was enforced

As I have already said before...
