What is on your wish list for 2022, and what will Märklin offer?

As the Märklin 37793 TGV has been released, I certainly would like to see the updated Lyria Euroduplex:

Drool

That'd be a nice set! I myself would like Marklin to issue a new br 85.

I'll predict there will be a Z gauge version of the Museum Br44 at some stage (not necessarily in the NI but possibly the Summer or Herbst NI).

Hi
Märklin HO fan here.
It would be a good time to announce digital for Z gauge.
On HO scale, the slim double slip switch is way overdue
Probably more locos fitted with pulse smoke generators (already 3 locos)
Also a new MS station with color screen would be great
Cheers
Jean

Hello.


New steamers wih dynamic smoke:
- British A4 in a blue livery.
- USA ATSF 4000 Class 2-8-2

Other things I like I am sure Märklin will do sooner or later so I will not write about them.


I also think Märklin should do:

Better couplers: Short as Fleischman short couplers and couple and decouple as good as standard Roco couplers.

Everything in the H0 range at exact 1:87, although there could be coaches at 1:100 for those who want.

Mostly Märklin H0.

Biggest problem with doing any british loco is that to get a decent market penetration it will need to be done in 1:76 (OO) scale.

While there is a group who model British prototype in H0 it is very niche, and I really wonder if Marklin producing any British loco in H0 is really worth it. There will always be those who will buy it as a Shelf Queen, but it would need rolling stock to go with it and I doubt the quantities and variants would be enough to justify the development effort.

If Marklin were to produce a Brish model it would probably have to be a "famous" model that also would have an international appeal.

eg the LNER Class A3 4472 Flying Scotsman in H0 with coaches. And it celebrates 100 years in 2023.

The A3 4472 toured in USA, Canada and Australia, so it should appeal to a wider group. :)

yes, i would agree that would be the most likely British steam loco for them to do.

However on thinking about it, the A4 Mallard family would also be a candidate, as there is the Dominion of Canada in a Canadian museum, the Dwight D, Eisenhower in a US museum, the Union of South Africa (not sure where that one is), Sir Nigel Gresley (named after the designer of the class), Bittern and Mallard itself. All these locos were brought together at the National Railway Museum for 75 years of the breaking of the steam loco world speed record. i feel that this is a bit of a cheat as the speed was recorded going downhill, but apparently that was enough to take it from the Germans.

So with the number of these locos in museums around the world the A4 may be a candidate.

I could also see an A4 and Br05 issued as a pair to celebrate an anniversary of steam speed records.

I too have always thought that Mallard’s reputed speed record was a cheat especially considering that it broke during the run.
Similarly giving the glory only to Gresley ignores the contribution O V S Bulleid made to the A4 design when he was Gresley’s assistant.
Especially once rebuilt, Bulleid’s Southern Railway designs were up there amongst the best which is perhaps why so many made it into preservation. According to former footplate men these unofficially (and unauthorised) reached some pretty phenomenal speeds for steamers.

O definitely😆🙏🙏
I’ve asked about the question of a HO British loco on Instagram, This would be greatly received from German Marklin fans as there is very much an interest in British steam. I don’t think there. That bothered about stock. But the Br mark one coaches would also sell well in the Harry Potter train which would also be a reason for producing a GWR loco as well as The Flying Scotsman. Arguably the worlds most famous 👍
Ps I now there was a Marklin Harry Potter train. But it was not HO and was in fact a Hornby model not a Marklin which would look fantastic as a proper HO model with dynamic smoke. British 00 looks odd in my opinion. As I love British steam but keep being disappointed when I see the 00 model of it in my opinion (sorry)
I would like to see new tooling of a NS or SNCB diesel pleasesss

Not all Insider members will order this model. Therefore you can ask if an Insider member is willing to order it for you.

It is a bit strange the promotional paper presents the Insider as a Trix model and just shows Märklin product number.

I am intrigued, the page for the coach set says the lighting in the coaches can have the brightness varied - but there is no mention of a decoder in the coaches, so how is this done?

Also the tail lights apparently go out when the train is reversed, and has a confusing description that suggests white lights are shown when reversing. Confused Confused

I'm also intrigued that the Marklin loco gets an mfx+ decoder, but the Trix one gets only an mfx decoder, but is no cheaper.

Still the Z gauge boys will be rejoicing in getting a V320.

Probably the tail car has a decoder or the locomotive can send power and command to the lights of the coaches. I think the first option is
the one choosen. Other options like "understand" the rotation direction of the coaches wheels doesn't seem to me as choosen.

What is a bit out of the usual is, in case the tail car has a decoder, the decoder doesn't have sound. Personally I don't like coaches with audio so
it is a good option.

When ESU has lights for coaches with integrated decoders at almost the same price Märklin has the lights for coaches without the decoders, I think the
best choice was to have in each coach a light kit with decoder. It would allow for control the coaches lights independently, or not, depending on each one's preferences.
It would waste a bit more energy, though.
This said, if Märklin option was the function decoder only in the tail car, it was a green decision in line with COP. BigGrin

I suppose that's possible too. However, an SK800 has not been tooled before with a can motor drive, so the design will be costlier. It's never even had the permanent magnet motor block.

I don't believe there is a decoder at all. If there was a decoder then there would be either an 'fx' or 'mfx' symbol, but neither symbol is listed for them.

On that basis i suspect the brightness adjustment is done manually in an analogue manner, using a potentiometer somewhere. But this does seem to be a strange way of doing it.

It's a bit strange yes, personally I would have preferred that they had the option to be dimmed from the locomotive decoder.

if I understand it correctly, each coach can be dimmed individually

It's a very tempting model...... :)

No need for a decoder to change the tail light. It’s can be done by a switch that depends on the wheel rotation.

Like the control car 43411 for instance.

The BR 06 is actually well priced against the Brawa model. In addition to it being a new mold, versus the 20 year old Brawa version, there are additional functions such as the smoke unit and dynamic smoke that actually make it very well priced.

I think Marklin is 10 years too late with the BR06. If I recall correctly it topped the poll 10 or so years ago when Marklin asked Insiders what models they wanted. The poll generated a bit of discussion on the forum.

I went and got a Brawa red BR06. Somehow (don't know to this day what I did, but found it in the box in this state) I managed to bend some of the driving rods on one side of the loco, pretty much unrepairable. I got a black Brawa BR06 without sound, swapped the chassis over and fitted a Loksound. That means I could put the black body back on it and run in that mode should I ever want to. I won't be buying the Marklin BR06 as a result even though it looks to be a nice loco. Likewise for the coaches.

Thread discussing the poll in 2010 is here: https://www.marklin-user...aspx?g=posts&t=16204

In this thread from 2020 I made comment as to which locos on the poll list had been produced

We're all different!

The release of the 06 001 is really good. My husband really likes the design so I've got an OK to order it.. The dynamic smoke generator looks awesome. The proces are really rotating but look at other items. Even Lego har raised their prices quite a lot.

I'm gonna order both the loco and the coaches.

Nice David! Glad I'm not alone here! Mine doesn't share much interest, but hasn't restricted me from epanding my layout or collection. He even made me custom clear plastic bins for trains from medical supply device cabinets, cut to shelf length. Most are a bit wider than ho scale cars, so I can store them ready to run, rathere than in their factory boxes. I don't have a shadow storage yard.
With Holidays close, and gift's to buy for grandchildren, I recently got a "no" on a 39961 br 95, which I wanted because I don't have a large tank steamer, an ICE4, (I have a 3, and a Fleischmann analog d/c ICE 1 Amtrak), and the 29187 br 218 Cottbus/Piko. I do have a large collection, and still have some items backordered and pre ordered. A set of Roco container wagons, and tankers, and a Marklin 39190 SBB Vectron. I also placed a requst for a cancellation on a 43815 Airport Express, as the alottment of this MHI item has been allocated.

Marklin have sent a notice to dealers that Start Up item prices will be going up significantly from January 1st, and a number of already announced Start Up sets will be delayed until mid 2022. So when the New Items brochure comes out be ready for significant Sticker Shock. Scared Scared Scared Scared

I really like the 06 and the wagons with people and lighting are a plus for me. A maybe from me. Something to ponder over the weekend.

Oh. Maybe you can get your hands on the 39961 later? It's a beautiful model.
I've really saved up for all my pre-orders as I'm changing work and will get very little salary in December.
As long as one's partner is showing respect and understanding for your hobby it really helps.

Märklin new insider BR 06 is a nice model but nothing for me.
Another to think about is that wagon set fit for the BR 06 are now this time equipped with power cap but no decoder to control the lighting.
