Hello everyone,

I couldn't find a list of manufacturers of Marklin compatible locomotives on the forum, so thought I would compile one. If there is one somewhere already, apologies in advance.
By compatibility, I mean that the locomotives come pre configured from the factory, so can run on Märklin layouts out of the box. Obviously, on most sites you will need to select the right configuration (i.e.: AC, Wechselstrom, Courant Alternatif etc...), and check the minimum radius to ensure compatibility with your setup.
I am not including defunct manufacturers.

This list makes me feel less lonely now BigGrin

Happy to expand/correct the list on request.

Thanks, a handy list.
To avoid any confusion I think you should retitle it as a list of mnfrs who offer Marklin compatible locos. In theory unpowered HO rolling stock from any mnfr is compatible with Marklin although some may require wheelset changes for trouble-free running.

You forgot the following that may have AC models in their catalogues:
B Models (Belgium): G-2000 Diesels, etc
Hobbytrain (various models)
Hobbytrade (various models)
Mehano (various models)

There was also Railtop (2002-2010)

Lima made a number of AC models in the late 1980s and 1990s. Today, only a few models are made in 3 rail version. Most of those are under the Lima Expert label.
There are also Small producers who make AC models. Most of the ones that I know are Swiss, but there are also Austrian, German and other companies out there:
Companies, like Friho (Lenk), Hui Modellbau, Sigg Modell, Renfer (Morep.ch), etc

For some companies (e.g. Hornby Group), more info on European and AC models might be found on the German version of the site than on the Italian, French or English (International) versions.

There are also companies who make AC models of non-European models like MTH

Interesting to note that the assorted websites for Hornby International Brands in Italy and Germany seem to be offline and linking to the Hornby UK site.
This includes Hornby-Arnold-Rivarossi in Germany, Hornby Italia (Rivarossi) and Lima Expert in Italy.

Hi!

You can include Trix on the list. They didn't make many locos for Märklin three-rail under the Trix brand since Märklin bought the company, but there are some.
They also make locos for Trix three-rail.

Dear MrB32;
Such a great list. And very handy I believe.
As an input to the post, We all should be aware that some models do need minimum radius. Marklin's minimum radius of 360 MM is creating a problem for some models. Not only locos, but for the wagons; as well. So the statement of Jabez as;

QUOTE
In theory unpowered HO rolling stock from any mnfr is compatible with Marklin although some may require wheelset changes for trouble-free running
UNQUOTE

is right but still have issues with the radius.
Please be aware.

Have a nice weekend to all the community.

The minimum radius for M track is 286 mm, the minimum radius for K track is 295.4 mm.
Some Märklin items have a documented minimum radius of 360 mm - those without specified minimum radius should also handle the smaller radii.
Some MäTrix items have a recommended radius of 400+ mm and some add-on parts may require even larger radii.

The smallest Piko radius is 358 mm, the smallest Roco radius is 358 mm.
But it's true that not all Roco items can handle these small radii and Märklin R2 might be required.
With other brands (MTH comes to mind) the minimum radii might be needed (Märklin R3 or even R4).

Do not trust the minimum radii given by the manufacturers - sometimes the items can take sharper curves than specified.

Yes, pay attention to the radii. Märklin R2 is the minimum radius I use.
Regards
Tom
