Hi all:

Well, there's another one which would be nice for 2006 - the famous ALSTHOM Electric CC7107 SNCF with C-sinus, mfx & sound [:p]
She's really something special: Her "Record Mondial de Vitesse" was 331 km/h. In 1955 ... [:0]

Something I would like Marklin to make:

Replacement glazing packs for the older models with opaque plastic behind the windows, eg 3016 railbus, 3034/3037 E41, etc

I really like some of the older models that you can pick up second hand, but I am put off by the aweful look of the windows.

How about it?

Further American locomotives both diesels ( such as GP's or SD's ) and steams as well as 1/87 coaches would certainly be appreciated.
As requested by many of us, further C-tracks :
- elongated double slip turnout
- 24307 and 24315
- 24407 and 24415
- 24507 and 24515
- 24918 ( a 17.9° complement to 24912 to make 30° )

I agree with all the previous posts about future M* models. But what I really need is a bridge with sound, perhaps a digital version of 7263. Have you ever heard of a steel bridge that is silent when a train passes ? Certainly not. For my new layout, a bridge with reasonable jar and wheel-synchronous rumble would be fine.

Well, my wish list is of different direction ( accesories)

1. A one piece C-track turntable ( integrated decoder and power feed)


With MS (and probably CS) interface! (Like the coaling station)

And a Portuguese train, for heaven's sake! Well... at least, as a last resort, some decals to make the AVE into the ALFA PENDULAR.

For a GP 30 I wouldn't wait for Märklin but try finding a GP 30 of Brawa's (# 0893) for example. Runs fine, costs less than $200,- digital version. Maybe this can satisfy you need... [:p]

Mehano has them and Euro Lok Shop in the US is selling them in various liveries at http://www.eurolokshop.com/meha...log.html#mehano-electric. While no AC version is listed, they will gladly special order. That's how I got my G2000. There's a good review in the Model Review section (last one down). The detailing is very high and it runs very smoothly. I think the Class 66 has less details, certainly not the delicate railing the G2000 has. Price for my analog AC model was under $200 with shipping and it took them about 5 weeks to get it.

Bedankt Sander,
I was ready to order a Digital Brawa Santa-Fe GP30 from a Canadian dealer, but it was out of stock. Anyway, when going back to Europe this Summer, I will try to get one. My intention is to repaint that locomotive in the CP Rail colours. As a matter of fact CP Rail had two GP30's which were registered as # 5000 and # 5001.

What I would like from Marklin in the coming year is not a material item, but more responsive communications and a better appreciation of their customers needs. I think they have to stop thinking about "business" and start thinking about "manufacturing" and "customer support" again. Managing to the bottom line may bring short term successes but in the long term hurts a company, especially one with a good reputation. Look at HP for an example. Too many managers and executives spend only a few years with a company and don't think beyond their expected stay. Sorry for getting on my soapbox here, but if Marklin spent the next year refocusing on their business, I wouldn't care if they didn't bring out any new products.

Pierre, very interesting dutch you write! wink Are you by accident coming to the Netherlands this summer?
By the way, I think repainting a GP 30 won't be a too big problem since it's rather easy to take it apart.

By the way, Ron, I agree with you that it's time for Märklin to work on customer relationships, but give them some time... They have started a mailingservice and are planning to do a lot more. Let's see what will happen in future.

I think your wishlist is the best so far! Smile
How about telling M* to start reading this forum more often?
One thing I also noticed is that they have a knack to keep customers in the dark... which is probably a good thing, because probably this forum wouldn't have been created in the first place... hmm... I'm getting confused... biggrin

Thanks, John. HP was for many years the standard of excellence by which all others were measured. When the founders were no longer involved, "businesspeople" took over and the quality went in the dumpster. Their only interest was in ROI (return on investment), not in making a good product. Gee...that scenario sounds somewhat familiar, doesn't it?

It does, Ron, it does. M makes GIGANTIC mistakes in not even answering [xx(][xx(][xx(] their customers e-mails - whereas L's Jerry Calabrese is chatting openly with 'em.
But there's one most important difference (to HP): Paul Adams IS taking care M products being still the top-of-the-line quality we're willing to pay for - I see it every time when running his excellent locos [:p][:p][:p] !!!

Hi all,

I have tried to read all the suggestions, and I think most of them are very good and even can be easily made. But I would like to add some others that I would really like to see... and purchase, of course! biggrin

1.- As Frankv wrote in the 2005 wish list, I think Märklin should develope some track & catenary maintenance cars from Europe, that could also complement the Wiebe starter set. Particularly, I've found this photo that could fit in any layout as a functional track cleaning car, including a front roll (like the old yellow Schienenbus) and a sweep below it (like the new cleaning car 46042), and all in metal for improved weight:

UserPostedImage

2.- 74371 with white LEDs instead of unrealistic yellow ones.

3.- New semaphores and other signalling items.

4.- New C track R3 or R4 turnouts with less distance between paralell tracks (perhaps 56 - 58 mm and 15º - 18º) for mainline stations where R9 turnouts just don't have enough room.

5.- DB BR-01.10 ep. IV with coal tender and sounds (perhaps 39105? [:I] )

6.- Some more freight wagons from SBB and ÖBB ep. III & IV.

In ten months time we'll see if any of us has hit the mark wink

Hi Julio

About track & catenary maintenance cars from Europe, you could take a look at www.brawa.de (H0, bahndienstfahrzeuge) or buy Kibri kits. I don't think Märklin will start producing these items since the market for them is limited, development costs are high and there allready are several producers of these kind of things.

Same story for the semaphores, Viessmann for example allready produces really nice ones.

C track R3 or R4 turnouts are only interesting for a very limited part of modelrailroaders and therefore not very interesting from a commercial point of view too.

But, there's hope for your wishlist, a DB BR 01.10 in ep. IV is a realistic wish I guess since Märklin produces their modells in all kind of liveries. Question is more when then if Märklin will forfill this wish! wink

Let's see...

Sander

Hi Sander,

Thanks for your comments, I assume that most of my "wishes" are just that... nearly impossible to make from a commercial point of view. But I suppose that's the reason why we are looking forward the new items brochure every year, just to see if any of our wishes has come true, and even get surprised with interesting things Cool

I already knew Brawa and Kibri has some of that maintenance cars, but here in Spain it is very difficult to see any of them in reality and acquire them appart from Internet. For the images I've seen, those from Kibri seems to be all plastic and I think they look too fragile to make them fully "functional" and durable over years and years; that's almost the same impression I get from Roco wagons [V]

I was thinking of a metal model of one or two maintenance cars, not necessary with motor, of medium size and with real cleaning features. I think it could be used in a short maintenance train that runs all over the layout and cleans its tracks every month or so, more or less as it is done regularly in real life with ballast.

As soon as such an item would be available, I would buy it with no doubt... and I hope I'm not the only one wink

Kind regards.

I did find a firm that makes MOW equipment for two rail.

I haven't purchased any yet, and it looks like all the equipment is in kit form. However, anything can be converted. It just takes time and money.biggrin

Look at item 247-7011 on down.

Märklin had with 74922 problems with the barriers. The fences on the barriers often failed, and for that reason 74922 was announced, but as far as I know never took into production.

My whishlist (not necessarily things I would buy myself, but things I would like to see from Märklin):

1. Wider radii curved turnouts for k-track.

2. The previously listed C-track additions.

3. "SuperCap" (or whatever trade name) based power backup in the decoders. New capacitor technology has made it possible to build capacitors with several orders of magnitude higher values than before. If this technology could be used to stabilize the power in the locos, we could forget about bad track contact, flickering lights and re-starting sound modules.

4. A really good wireless-LAN-based video car for H0.

5. An RFID-based train identification system with readers small enough to fit under the C-track.

6. Release of all tecnical information regarding the "Märklin Systems", including specifications of the mfx forward and backward channel, the CAN bus communication and the use of the Ethernet port.

Bonjour Olivier,
If you can't wait for Märklin to develop a larger turntable, there is still the possibility to try to adapt Walthers-Cornerstore 130' Turntable # 933-2829 :

PS: it is still my intention to adapt the Walthers # 933-3171 90' Turntable to the Märklin system with a budget of less than $100.00 !

Bonjour Pierre,
I see this turntable, but my problem is to adapt it to Marklin C track system, I am oblige to say that I don't exactly know how to adapt it, so your experience in this adaptation will interest me a lot. Thanks for your message and best regards

Julio, you're right about the Kibri items, they're all plastic models. Brawa models are much better, mostly metal, good quality and a good customer services department. But, you should probably buy through the internet, could be a problem although I don't think it's a risk to buy this way.
I'm looking forward to the next brochure too! wink

Marco, about the 74922 railroad crossing, although the website states it has been available I'm sure it hasn't been produced at all. There were serious problems with the failing fences and mainly the heating up mechanism. Märklin decided not to produce the item untill the problem was solved. Never heard anything about it since... [:(]

Points to MärCo. I guess M*'s site was giving out some wishful thinking.

Thanks for the information. I am not a Insider member anymore, so I did not know the latest information about 74922. Indeed, the last thing I did hear that it was not produced untill the problems were solved. I very much wanted to buy 74922.

Marco, I haven't seen these info in the Insider, but maybe I've missed it... I've read it in a letter from Märklin to all dealers. (Now that's one of the advantages of working at a Märklin dealer wink )

By the way, you're absolutely not the only one who intended to buy this crossing.

Hi, I'm new to this forum.
I agree totaly. More diesels like the GP's. The Brawa versions don't have the same 'feeling' as the Märklin locos! imho they're too plastic...

<br />Further American locomotives both diesels ( such as GP's or SD's ) and steams as well as 1/87 coaches would certainly be appreciated.
As requested by many of us, further C-tracks :
- elongated double slip turnout
- 24307 and 24315
- 24407 and 24415
- 24507 and 24515
- 24918 ( a 17.9° complement to 24912 to make 30° )
Pierre.

You're right. Worst of all is that funny plastic junk where a motorized tender crunches her poor loco into turnouts constantly biggrinbiggrinbiggrin
