Yeah, I think its an odd to English translation of Lichtraumprofil.

Basically because of the length of the cars, as they go around the 360mm R1 (which they physically can do on the track), the center and/or corners of the wagons will extend further outward/inward than the track clearance NEM standard or Märklin typical standard allows. As a result, if you have masts and structures right up against the track in those bends, the cars may well impact those trackside structures.

Lucky for me, I've not yet built my layout, so by the time I get to installing catenary posts, signal masts, etc I will be in possession of the train and can use it to determine the clearance of all things to the track in the R1 curves (which I will have plenty of).

I guess they mean the Lichtbild. In other words it goes over the norm.


Smile Not really. The German word is "Lichtraumprofil" and about it a long article exists in the German Wikipedia.

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lichtraumprofil

and it is even in English available! But they name it structure gauge.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Structure_gauge

And we Germans are perfectRollEyes - sometimesLaugh Of course we do have adequate signs for this Lichraumprofil (clearance gauge).

Haven't ordered any Marklin (or model railway stuff) this year due to time constraints meaning I've no space/time to set them up, but 37068 really got me interested... until I saw the $500AUD (ish) price tag!!!!!

Marklin RRP prices are listed in the German version of the catalog.

Nothing much of interest for me, I was hoping (for the 2nd time!) there would be 1 Gauge TEE coaches to go with the BR103 locos Marklin released last year, but no we get a €4,500 French steam loco instead....

The H0 BR290 looks nice but €360 isn't cheap, so will probably pass on that.

Marlin did production 37995 weathered edition running number 4014 six years ago.

Don't know Marlin can do it again but price more expensive - about 900 euro?

I'm seriously thinking about the Br290. I don't have many locos in Era V red.

The Transwaggon set is nice to go with it too.

The Br213 and it's set is nice too, and a little bit cheaper.

I'm also thinking of getting the three wagons from Denmark, Sweden and Luxembourg. Can't get enough "foreign" wagons...

It seems to me that Märklin is moving away from modelling US prototypes. Based on that I purchased a 26495 and a 26496 last year, which rounds out my US based trains. If they want to stop there it is OK with me I guess, because it will help me to save more money. ThumpUp

Not sure I understand what you mean. With all the car sets that have been/are available since the first Big Boy [37990], a >100-car train can be made without using duplicate sets (counting only 2 cabooses: the one from 45652 as the MoW consist would be transported as a whole, and the train's caboose – however, almost any number of cabooses would be prototypical as the additional ones could be on a move; I've seen a string of 5 or 6 at the end of a train in 1950s footage).

A fairly complete list (close couplers only):
29570: 3 cars [from the NYC starter set with NYC PA 4210]
29848: 7 cars [from the big starter set with BB 4015]
45580: 3
45642: 9
45645: 5
45646: 10
45647: 3
45648: 3
45649: 9
45650: 3
45651: 3
45652: 3
45653: 5
45654: 5
45655: 5
45657: 5
45658: 5
45659: 5
45660: 5
45661: 3
45662: 3
45664: 3
45680: 3
45690: 3
45800: 4
45801: 4
45702: UP Caboose 3771 [or 45709, UP Caboose 3856]

That makes 116 cars if I counted correctly.

In the years since I ordered my 37990, there have been multiple of the above that I could not afford at the time they appeared; on the other hand, I did manage, years ago, to get my hands on two 20-car Trix offerings, which can be used on my layout either as are (only need to have one car fitted with two different couplers to hook up a Trix block to a Märklin block).

Indeed, really a very high price. I am also interested in this little BR 80, but need more time thinking about the price. For a longer time I am already looking for a BR 64 #39648 from Märklin. Märklin price was 330 €, the BR 80 #37068 price in the German catalogue is 300 € ( about $480 AUD). The 80 is smaller as the 64 - ok, both got mfx+ decoder on board, but the BR 80 is now equipped first time with the new slim Telex coupler. This - I think - makes the price acceptable to myself. But I miss the possibility for smoke in the chimney. Guess have to ask Märklin what happened to the smoke facility and if it can be retrofitted.

There are nice prices at lokshop, that made me order the 39243, plus the VAT exemption it came at a more reasonably price.

Very excited with the 39243!!! Just ordered it at my local dealer. Having missed the 39241, I have been waiting for her release in "Green" for sometime. To be quite honest ... to my eyes ... Green color suits her quite well.

Indeed! I was convinced that my 39241 was the prettiest steamer ever, right up to when I saw the 39243. I have always had a soft spot for green locos and combined with that beautiful design and the high level of detail this one will be very special as well.

I still should not buy one even though I am tempted. Whenever my 241-A 65 is running everyone is just drawn to it, like nothing else is there - it is that fine. Cool

I really should not buy one. BigGrin

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.

Did anyone know whether 39243 is equipped with the running gear lights functions as 39241 ?

If the pictures posted on Märklin's website are correct, then no, they do not have them. That seems strange but perhaps it is correct to the prototype? It makes you wonder what other features might have quietly gone away.

The fact that my 241 A 65 not only has running gear lights but that they look exactly like those on the prototype is one of my most favorite features.

Flat car "Rilnss":

The wagon is designed for the transport of weather-sensitive goods. The tarpaulin cover protects the goods from rainwater and snow. Pallet goods, sheet rolls of different diameters in special saddle pallets, steel bars, steel sheets, wood blanks as well as other piece goods and semi-finished products can be transported on the wagon. Loading and unloading by crane with magnets or grabs.

Hi, I think this CFL wagon is used for finished steel products which are weather sensitive. Marklin did a set of 3 CFL flat cars loaded with steel girders, 47050. It’s a nicely weathered.
There are also shorter covered tarp wagons for coiled steel. I’ve seen the SNCF version of this wagon, in a siding along side Vannes station in Brittany France, being unloaded with pallets of produce straight into a truck! The scene looked straight out of a train set😁👍 it was a single wagon. There were also 2 SBB slide wall wagons. Which I really didn’t expect to see in a medium French town. Dan

Hi Thanks Ak and Dan,

Thanks for the description, it all makes sense.
So we could say freight in general - the tarpaulin sides are very common on road trucks in Australia.
They call them curtain walls.
But I don't think I have seen them on railways.

Yes Dan understand.
Maerklin actually announced an Ermewa (France) set 47102 for 2019 and there are other sets of the SNCF shorties 47209 and 47211.
See also the CFL set 47207.

Marklin RRP prices are listed in the German version of the catalog.

Nothing much of interest for me, I was hoping (for the 2nd time!) there would be 1 Gauge TEE coaches to go with the BR103 locos Marklin released last year, but no we get a €4,500 French steam loco instead....

The H0 BR290 looks nice but €360 isn't cheap, so will probably pass on that.

I believe that Märklin's target market for its top locos has shifted , from MRR hobbyist to collectors. That market cares less about price and more about detail and exclusivity, so prices rise but so does quality, at least in my recent experience.

We kind of asked for this with our wishlists of a perfect Märklin and we forgot to consider the cost. I am now buying fewer things and spending about the same amount of money, which is nice actually. Their product quality has been quite good in the last two years, at least it has been for my new items and I am quite pleased, if a little alarmed at the price trends.

There is new pricing coming from Märklin soon and I am wondering how much things will change then.

But oh well, in for a penny in for a pound at this point it is for me, no matter what. It looks like an interesting ride at the very least and I have added some amazing new trains to my layout over the last two to three years. Cool

Jim

I'm also thinking of getting the three wagons from Denmark, Sweden and Luxembourg. Can't get enough "foreign" wagons...

I think that curtain wall vans on railways are regarded as potentially hazerdous with the possibility of them coming loose in the slipstream as trains pass. Hence a preferance for sliding wall vans. However Electrotren model vans with curtain walls so presumabely acceptable in Spain.

Hi David,

I have been waiting for an era VI BR290 shunter, but era V will do.
So 39902 will be beautifully weathered which is how you see them in real life.
And the telex dynamic coupler is a must for easy shunt operation.

This feature of dynamic driver is a great innovation and talking point, but you would have to be 300mm or less from the model to notice it.
Maybe that suits a smallish layout.
So it is not a feature I particularly want to pay for.
UNLESS Maerklin provided 3 different drivers you could swap around - blue shirt, red shirt and black shirt - with or without cap......

At around $550 to $610 in Australia it is still tempting.

You could always paint the shirts.. I don't know about the cap - would an engine driver not wear a cap?

There seems to be some concern that it was a problem with a curtainside wagon that caused a significant train crash on a bridge in Denmark recently.

[edit]
Whoops, reading more carefully it wasn't actually curtain wall wagons involved, but articulated trailers on wagons.

Picking up on the pricing commentary, I have to say I've noticed a "smarter" Marklin on the other end of the fence the past few years: more tangible themes, product we cannot shoot holes in for a lack of features/detail, better marketability in terms of functions and things like orient express. This sort of thing is Marketing 101, and has enabled them to charge (and get) these full-on price tags. Exclusivity I don't think is the angle, but rather not oversupplying the market and therefore depressing market pricing.

Using the 241 as an example, everyone seems to have loved it. Despite the very high price tag (I had to pass myself for that reason) it was a "you get what you pay for" moment. I'd love to see the marklin balance sheets and learn this, but I bet that first run paid for the tooling and this second orient express run will put the model in the black- all while packed in an exclusive theme which will move a few passenger car sets in the process. When the third variant comes I bet it is all cash cow


I guess where I'm going with this is, despite a lot of us being priced out by these new models, I think it actually is good for the company. I"m in no rush, I'll pick up a used one some day. For now I need the money to build out the basement/train room!
