Hi All...

I have thought about the Märklin locomotive models that I would like to have on my layout covering Eras III & IV. The list comprises of steam, electric, diesel and powered railcars. The list of my most favourite locomotives is as follows:

Steam Locomotives

1. 1 x 30000 (DB Br89) - Era III - currently in possession
2. 1 x 36244 (DB Br24) - Era III - Märklin Klassiker - currently in possession
3. 1 x 36862 (DB Br98.3) - Era III - proposed
4. 1 x 37845 (DB Br50) - Era III - my 50th. year birthday locomotive ! - currently in possession
5. 1 x 39004 (DB Br01) - Era III - proposed
6. 1 x 39787 (DB Br78) - Era III - proposed


Electric Locomotive


1. 1 x 37575 (DB Br E03) - Era III - currently in possession
2. 1 x 39126 (DB E 10.12) - Era III - proposed
3. 1 x 39511 (Class Be 4/6) - Era III - proposed
4. 1 x 39567 ('krokodil') - Ce6/8 II - Era IV - currently in possession


Diesel Locomotives

1. 1 x 3075 (DB Br216) - Era III & Era IV - currently in possession (needs digital conversion)
2. 1 x 30210 (DB Br V200) - Era III - 75 years of Märklin HO - Reproduction of a classic - currently in possession
3. 1 x 36083 (DB Br280) - Era IV - proposed
4. 1 x 36345 - Köf III - Era III - proposed
5. 1 x 39690 (DB Br260) - Era IV - currently in possession

Powered Railcar

1. 1 x 39978 (VT98.9) - Era III - proposed


I would be very interested in your feedback and comments on my choice of locomotives for my layout which is going to be modelled mostly in Era III and a bit of Era IV. I am thinking that this whole collection will make me very happy and very contented model railroader. This ultimate collection of locomotives will also help me to control my finances.

Surely, there will also be an ultimate list for my passenger wagons and freight cars which is coming soon !

Take care and stay healthy.

Cheers,
Ranjit

Don't forget that there are something like 5 versions of this, with the packing cases having different writing on them.

I think (don't have kolls handy to check) there are also at least two versions of the 4617, one with a grey transformer and one with a green one are my memories.

A number of other wagons you list also have multiple variants.

Thank you for pointing them out, Alan ! Yes, I am aware. I am particularly looking for ones made during the late 70s. Actually there are four (4) variants of these models (4617/4618). The crate had the inscription 'BAHIA', and the transformer had the inscription 'AEG'.

Take care and stay safe.

Cheers,
Ranjit
