The slim double slipis still on top of my list.

3 degree R9-track.

Some sort of wide radius flex c-track for +700 mm radius.

Sgmmnss 40-45 feet 4-axle wagon for container, or preferably steel loads.
I think Märklin already have something like this.
A modified version for steel slabs would be great and probably popular in Sweden. Since Märklin already have the basic tooling, all that's needed is the loading rack, similar to how they made the Sgns timber wagons some 5 years ago, and they are still selling a lot! Timber hauling is major in Norway and Sweden, often by companies going across the border like Hector or Green Cargo or Cargo Net.

New tooling for Swedish RC-locomotive. As it is now the market is wide open for Roco. And we need modern RC-locos for HNoll's excellent 80's coaches.

Hi Leo,
I agree with most of your sentiments including about the container rolling stock.

As well as the C track slim double slip crossover I think a slim 3 way turnout would be a practical addition to the range.

Definitely the 3 degree R9 is needed.

It´s not possible because of the stud contacts and the pick up shoes make possible failure to contact on the rail and short circuits.
In fact in the three rail world there is limited about the track system.

Anything is possible, it's just the cost of development and engineering. After all they have the slim line points, and the difficulties with aligning the pukos on a crossing are no more difficult than those.

No!
Weichen-Walter did tried too with the problem by try slim line turnouts.
It result short circuits.
Sure if you believe to fix the problem you have too add a lot of puckos on the turnouts as result!
I don´t believe Märklin are will to start those turnouts because of the expensive as result to shop C-turnouts.
To use slime line turnouts you need bigger layout...at least 5 metres!

Hi Goofy,
I do not understand you.
Märklin offer the slimline turnouts, 24711 and 24712 and many people buy them.
Our request is to design construct and market a 3-way combination of the 24711 and 24712, and also a double-slip crossover of the same geometry.
There may be some electrical shortcomings with the 3-way but no more than the existing 24711 and 24712. A couple of my locomotives (Liliput and Märklin 37258 Kittel) create a short on 24711/12 so they are route restricted on my layout, just like some real trains are route restricted.

You did not clarify if Weichen-Walter attempted to build the slim 3-way or the slim double slip. Anyway it would be useful if you could give us a link to Weichen-Walter to read about the experiment.
Thankyou.
Kimball

Goofy doesn't do links.....we are still waiting for the link to the video about pukos contact and track cleaning..

Perhaps you might find something on the Weichen-Walter website - https://www.weichen-walter.de
