Not sure where to place this question:

I came across a 1999 Christmas Car that appears to have two different model numbers: 94045 and 48398, for what appears to be the same exact car. Can anyone tell me if they are different cars or if they are the same car, why they have two different model numbers?

Edit to correct to 48398 instead of 48399.

They aren't the same. 94045 is a tank car. 48398 is a Brawa item. 48399 is a Marklin flat car with a Christmas tree. $125.00 on Ebay.

Bottom line, I think you are right and I was mislead by the 94045 turning up as the first picture of a Google search on: "Marklin 48398". I appreciate your quick response.

I did some more homework and this is what I found online:

From 3rail wiki: there is no 48398 listed; just 48397 and 48399 on through consecutively to 48417 which is strange that 48398, in a consecutive series would not be used.

3rail published: "The Märklin 94045 is a type Z boiler wagon from Era IV. It is a special wagon released as a Christmas year wagon in 1998. The wagon is white in color with a colorful Christmas image on the sides. The wagon has a length of 11.5 cm and is equipped with relex couplings (RK)."

From the Marklin site from the 48603 Product Description: [translated]: ""...continues the series of original Christmas cars that began in 1997." which would imply they would have a 48398.

I appreciate your time in reading my post and responding to it!!

Peter
