That's a bit sad. Do they do any interesting articles on straight up German railway history? Or is it always used to illustrate a modelling application? Either way as long as they have something indepth about railway history it would be worth it.

Hi all,

Interesting article on page 19 of the German edition of 3/2022 insider news, M is going to start using the 38 XXX model numbers again, previously reserved for Hamo models.
It will be interesting to see what the first 38 XXX model will be?
They say they are running out of numbers in the 39 XXX and 37 XXX model numbers.

Best Regards,
Don

My Trix Proficlub 05/2022 arrived this morning.

Flyer for Albatross and order form for Marklin/Trix calendar at reduced price.

Insider magazine center fold has a rather nice CAD cross section of the Br06 smoke unit, along with photos and an explanation of how it works. I assume the same unit is used in the Albatross.

Yes, that CAD cross section of the Br06 smoke unit, was nice. But the one used in the Albatros is slightly different and it has a different part number. So far all the dynamic smoke generators have been slightly different. so, unfortunately, is not possible to have a single spare one that fits several locomotives.

And I noticed they are also increasing the insider membership price, but since it was 13 years since the last time it was kind of expected.

The Magazine cover has a picture of the Albatros with a 8 page article inside.

The accompanying letter warns of a forthcoming Insider Membership fee increase.

Hm, well I guess I'm on target for this year to be my last on the inside. Its more a collector focused club, or at least has little alignment to my era of modeling (IV), of late. Even the free cars are getting less applicable to me; to pay more for 6 issues of a magazine and club newsletter is not adding up. I just went through my prior 5 years of the Maerklin magazine and insider magazine, cutting out / clipping and saving those articles I want to preserver for reference going forward, and it resulted in a massive pile of paper several feet high, weighing what 20+ kg, being reduced to what easily fits in a thin folder, about what one issue of the insider magazine is. A lot of paper went to the recycler. For collectors and those interested in all of those layout sample probably a great thing. But who knows, I'll probably hem and haw in January again, and maybe end up paying the what $120/yr in the end again.. though there is a bigger chance I'll pull the plug this year.

Like you, Thomas, I have already pulled the plug on he Märklin Insider Club membership from this year !

The main reason has been that in order to receive the "free car", the "catalogues and the magazines, I have to shell out a helluva lot of money in customs duties, taxes and postage. It is crazy ! Even the Euro 5/- coupon that I used to receive on my birthday every year cost more than Euro 5/- ! It didn't make any sense whatsoever.

No idea what to do with the paperwork that has piled up since 1996.

So, bye-bye Märklin Insider Club !

Cheerio !

My 06/22 pack arrived this morning, also rain damaged.

It would be great if they could use robust or plasticized envelopes. Half of mine arrived rain damaged this year.

My replacement 05/22 pack also arrived today, but it's in French...

Just received my Insider Club mailing 6/2022 today. Despite wet and windy weather here on the south coast of the UK, envelope was bone dry and in perfect condition. Good old Royal Mail!
