Hi,

Welcome to the forum.

This is a Märklin AR 3041 from the early 1920s in gauge 1. It is a export-version for the US-market. It is a version for "high current" with resistors. But beware to run it on 230VAC. It should start running at ~20-25Volt.

Regards

Markus

Hi,

Maybe because Märklin had no Internet in the early 1920s?

In fact, there are only very few informations about earlier toy-trains on the web. If you search for
Code:
Märklin "R3041"
you find at least some pages were the European version is mentioned.

Regards

Markus

Hi Markus,

The question is whether the version is so original? The question is whether the lok is the way it is original? Because I know as I said this version so not. Is the tender inscription so synonymous original?
