Ray,i will be living on a pension as from October 2017,after 43 years of hard labour.
No 600 Euro locomotives for me,i fear.
Need to concentrate on a Marklin item around Euro 100 every two months or so.
And then there is the additional addiction:collecting Hobby Master 1/48 airplanes,the Dutch P-51 to arrive shortly,these come at some 70 euro's each.

There is plenty of Marklin stuff around from decades ago,a time i could not afford any modeltrain,bringing papers round on a simple pushbike,in any type of weather.
Talking French locomotives,the 3165 could be a suitable next for me

Hi Paul,

Yes I totally agree.

I try to balance my collection, buying some golden oldies every year to which I add a couple of the new items from the current year, as long as they are affordable. In the past I've managed to stretch to a loco in the 400 euro range once a year, but that may have to stop unless it's the only purchase in the year!

I've bought 8 or 9 locos this year, which is less than average, but I plan to cut it down to 4 or 5 next year.

I saw the model loco earlier today at a presentation in Göppingen. It is really, really nice and worth the price.

The original was supposed to arrive at 3pm at Göppingen station but unfortunately due 'Lokschaden' the presentation has been cancelled.

I love this new loco. Are the recommended passenger coaches for this loco prototypical? I wish Marklin would have introduced new Orient Express coaches to go with it.

Well, Steventrain, you bring it down to the point. Agree with you totally.

Whereas unusable for a 360 mm radius, it could be a challenge to the digital functions. Because why not a sensor and program for the loco stopping in front of a 360 mm curve? Just as an idea. BigGrin


But 600 € is too much, even I have to confess, indeed it is a very beautiful loco. I bought the S 2/6 (37017) - which is also "not ugly" Blink - for a price of 450 €. This was already expensive for just a loco. 150 € more is 33,33 % on top of the S 2/6 price! Confused

Who is thinking, that the new French class 241-A loco is 33,33% nicer than the old Bavarian S 2/6?Smile

Nice loco, I'm going to get one.

A lot of loco doesn't run on R1, but it's ok, I mean, this is same thing as Big Boy or others, is a special stuff, I'll wait to see it with my eyes but I think I will go for it.

As of today I'm more pissed off by the Breda TEE from Roco which doesn't even run on R3 :)

Has the delivery date been set?
Also although I am planning on easing the curves on my layout, radius 2 on K track is still 1cm to small?
So it will be 2241 curves.

Saw the model in the brochure. Didn't order any loco from the fall collection, the BR 18.5 was tempting, Decided to wait for the surprise fall item. I think it's a beauty and ordered it today. Most of my curves are R3 or R4 on the main line. Some (half) R2 followed by a wider radius. So I expect no problems, We wil see.

Sorry Marklin,this will probably be my next purchase,the Hobby Master 1/48 Brewster Buffalo with Dutch East Indies markings:

The pilot of this particular plane,Lt.Deibel,shot down at least 3 Japanese fighters before being killed himself.

Such a great model !

But on my just finished layout :
1 x Märklin C-Track 24107 Curved R1=360mm 7.5°
3 x Märklin C-Track 24115 Curved R1=360mm 15°
13 x Märklin C-Track 24130 Curved R1=360mm 30°
makes 17 unfortunate reasons to save money Blink
and to keep on collect oldies or small new ones...

congratulations to all those who will possess it.

Hi Panayotis,
I would say why not, it is yours to choose?

The 42795/6 wood bodied/clad cars were modeled as running in 1928.
CIWL were making steel cars from 1923, so a decade later when the 241 A was built, it is most likely that the CIWl trains were using the most modern equipment.
And of course they were all blue by that time.

Except for the 4029 sleeper car (as built in 1958) Marklin have never made any realistic later models for this time (1930+).
4029
Rivarossi, LS and REE have made them, such as the Y series sleepers.

So talking toys (not models particularly) I would prefer to run Marklin stock if possible, due to matching coupler heights, wheels etc etc.
And the Orient Express train Marklin 2701 would be perfect for this engine.
2701
And why not run the 346 series in tin plate if you have them.
34 6 series
A mixed train of these and 4029 cars would look fine behind the 39241 for late 1950/60s
Leave out the 4029 to get a train for 1940s/50s.

HO Scale - Märklin (ep III and VI, C Track, digital) - 2 rail (USA and Australia) - 3 rail (English Hornby Dublo) - a few old O gauge.

Looks beautiful but
1 I need to thin my collection so I am going to focus on ERA III/IV
2 I am also living on a pension so €599 for 1 loco is way too much.

Probably yes, but since the prototype loco is nowadays used for various charter trains in Switzerland, you can also take more or less modern passenger coaches, for instance even these French INOX units: http://portfolio.trainbo...dukt-_MG_9319_1600px.jpg

I really like it, and I think that it is entirely appropriate for Marklin to produce top level, top price models. We do not all have to buy everything that they offer and it is nice to have choices.

I can order if for €490, which is less than I paid for a new 37015 after it was no longer available from most dealers, so it seems almost reasonable to me. But then I am seldom rational when it comes to making my loco choices,and with any luck I never will be. BigGrin

I am an advocate for running whatever coaches I want with my locos, as long as there is any plausible explanation. This is an excursion loco today and it could be run with any number of coach sets in my opinion. Basically just pick whatever coaches you like within reason. After all, our model railroads are our worlds to control. Cool
Regards,
Jim

I have almost all Märklin and mostly HO, although I do have a small number of Z gauge trains!
I have models from Era I to Era VI, but I try to focus on Eras I & III. Whoops, that one got away from me. Let's just say I focus on cool trains, regardless of the particulars :-)
So many trains and so little time.

I can only praise Maerklin for releasing this model, and I hope they sell lots.
It does represent fantastic value, if you compare it with a Fulgurex, or Micro Metakit brass-built version of the same or similar thing.

For myself, I can say that I am tempted every day to buy models of all gauges and sizes.
Old clockwork, beautiful brass models in both HO and O etc etc.
But the reality is that I have no room to run them, and even less space to store them.
So I will desist from purchasing the 39241.

do you mean it's not running at all or is it touching into catenary poles or tunnel portals ?

I tried waiting a bit on the 37015 S 2/6 and they disappeared very quickly and before I could buy one. I eventually decided that I really did need that model and I ended up paying a premium to get one of the few new ones still out there. So I think that anyone who really wants a 241 A 65 needs to get it promptly. I believed that I was done ordering for a while but I have to admit that looks like one very special loco. Cool

I also have multiple things pre-ordered and I am not sure what I will do, especially since I am still waiting on my Insider 103. If they all came in during one month if could be really expensive. I also have Kimball's problem of running out of room but unfortunately that has not stopped me from buying more trains yet.
Regards,
Jim

I have almost all Märklin and mostly HO, although I do have a small number of Z gauge trains!
I have models from Era I to Era VI, but I try to focus on Eras I & III. Whoops, that one got away from me. Let's just say I focus on cool trains, regardless of the particulars :-)
So many trains and so little time.

Hi, I think someone on the forum has got a REE ac electric and found it needed the axle needed adjustment to run properly? You would have to no what you were doing, to do that to one of these steamers😱
I have decided against getting this new Marklin 241a as it's got several draw backs now.
It's minimum radius is to large
even for radius 3 K track.
It's out to soon, for me as I have to much on order and it's really out of my price range too.
Even though it's worth the price.
I have also lots of other Marklin wants as well😁😁👍

The loco is being sold by a German webshop for Euro 550.- minus 1 cent.
That means the first 50 Euro's have been cut off.

I hope it's not such a clunker as the '74 version with Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, John Gielgud, Vanessa Redgrave, Michael York, Jacqueline Bisset, Anthony Perkins et al. Just throwing bucket-loads of star talent at a movie does not a good movie make.

The REE current version (October '17) is this:
Réf. MB-004 SAC - Vapeur 2-231 K 8 CALAIS Machine Préservée, Ep.V, DCC Sonorisée - Fumée Pulsée - 3 Rails
Their sync steam exhaust also through the valve chest is impressive. The model looks great, but how reliable is its function I do not know.

The new clock 241A sure is a beauty. The more I look at it the more I get the feeling this is not a Märklin product. Märklin has always made locomotives that run on their track geometry. When I see that this loco will not run on R2 "K" track curves it make me wonder. I have a "K" track layout and I do not have any 360 mm radius track sections. This loco cannot negotiate my points. I get the feeling this loco is made by the high quality asian supplier that made the 37015 S 2/6.

My speculation too....

HO Scale - Märklin (ep III and VI, C Track, digital) - 2 rail (USA and Australia) - 3 rail (English Hornby Dublo) - a few old O gauge.
