I have a Marklin set 26574 which I purchased from the Netherlands. The literature that came with it refers to the decoder as being on a 26573. Whenever I query 26574 online I get returns about both the 26573 and the 26574. Is the 26574 the number of the set and 26573 the number of the engine? Do I have a three line AC engine and three line AC cars?

AFAIR the 26573 was the original Wuerttemburg set. 26574 was a "weathered" version of the same set.
I guess that the second set contained the original instructions (26573) as the instructions were not weathered.

May be these links help.

I could not find anything about this set in the Maerklin database. No wonder because the set is from 2000. As far as I know, Maerklin never gives any article an own article number within a set. If you have 2 article numbers for a set looking like the same one, mostly the differences you find in the technical equipment at the loco or in the design, numbering, colour, etc.

It looks like:
for the 26573 set the loco was based in Esslingen. In the 26574 set the loco was based in Geislingen.

Do not forget, these locos were part of the K.W.St.E. - Königlich Württembergische Staatseisenbahn. Read more about the "Royal Württemberg State Railways" in Wikipedia.
