Maybe sales dropped off and they decided to just cancel production.

What does this have to do with the New Items 2024 discussion? I'm confused.


the V60 is a loco from the classic line, which is ment to be continuously in the product catalogue. If Märklin takes it out of the program, it could be possible that a new version will come out soon.

This I guess is what Goofy ment.

All I really wanted was an FS Steamer in a 3rail version. I really don't care what era.



The "old" Märklin 37164 maybe an option...

I know it is not comparable, at least from a point of view of value, but I always think that if I want something like this, I print the size I want the image I want in sticker paper and attach to the wagon or trailer I want...

Good find, but I had to copy the text after starting a reply.

It is obviously being hammered heavily as it is very sloooow ... Angry

Some interesting items, another ES44 for the american aficionados.
Some 'snowed' C-Track - presumably just done with a white molded base.
New 100VA power supplies to match the 50/60VA ones.
Gauge 1 Big Boy with rolling road display case as a seperate item.
New Track Planning Software V11, looks like a book comes seperately.
Looks like Z scale is also well provided for as well.

yes, there are some interesting items, and the C-track snow edition is nice.

My first copy of the link from my browser got messed up, so I had to edit it again Blushing
Sometimes märklin follows some logic, and if they continue with the same logic, you can just replace the 24 with 25 in the link, to show the 2025 items....

Well, there we go.

Kinda sad we didn't see any new British loco, but oh well.

The Swedish F-1200 is really nice, but I think I just have to sit this one out as its a little too expensive for me at the moment. I am certain it will sell out very quickly as its a highly anticipated model, and those usually keep their value over time as well. At least a handful of people will most certainly buy it just as an investment...

I do like this a lot:
Skarmbild 2024-01-08 163950.png
And this is very interesting:
Skarmbild 2024-01-08 164111.png

The snow covered C-track set is interesting for sure. I wonder if there is a market for this? Will they gradually offer all C-track in snow-covered variants with time?

I think this is related to it being painted in a historic livery. I presume there is one in this livery wandering around the US somewhere.

Interesting it is limited to 1500 items from Marklin, but only 500 from Trix, so 2000 in total.

The ES44 never existed in this livery with the PRR. When the PRR was dissected, parts of it were integrated into other railroads. Some went to Conrail. The main Northeast Corridor went to Amtrak and remnants of the freight operations (of Pensy and Conrail) eventually went to Norfolk Southern. Over the past few years, North American operators have been cladding their locomotives in liveries of defunct railroads, of which Pennsylvania is a well known example. The NS locomotives and probably even the PRR Heritage loco has made it up to Montreal on the former NYC trackage.

This locomotive seems to be the first in a series of "Heritage" locomotives. Probably the number is greater in AC models than in DC because these models are more likely to already exist in DC from North American manufacturers.

I would rather see a model of the Siemens Venture Consist for VIA Rail.

The F1200 has a cab roof in black in the CAD image and is grey (same color as the boiler) in the presentation video.
I prefer the black and i think it makes a difference. Let's see what will be the the roof color of the real item.

Hm, from the Swiss perspective, a Croc, a Red Arrow and the Landi. Having them all already - even if the Landi was a bit of a surprise - maybe 2024 will be the year for a BR 103, one of the childhood Märklin catalogue dreams?

I am a little disappointed that a few SBB items that I had been hoping for did not materialize...

To start with, Maerklin has not yet produced a HQ version of the original LokRoll Vectron (like the 36195) or the MRCE (Shadowpiercer) in black, but the model that I had been hoping for was the RailPool "Silverpiercer".

I was hoping for more coaches to go with the EWIV coaches in the new livery, but I did not see any of the SBB EC coaches in the new livery nor a model of the AS which could easily have been derived from the regular 1st class A coach.

I was also hoping that we would see the SBB WRm (43874) in the orange C1 "Eurofima" colors to complete my EC consist with SBB, FS and DB coaches.
I was also looking for a DB Bvmz185 and Bm235 for my "Tiziano" from 2016.

The LandiLok (Ae 8/14) fits my period, but the model says early 1970s and the prototype had a fire before I arrived in Switzerland (1971) as has not been used since. The loco was rebuilt and displayed as a non-operational model at the Swiss Transportation Museum in Luzern. I visited her there in 1985.

I guess that I will wait and see what Roco and LS Models announce as new models and then have to decide, what, if anything, will take a bite out of my wallet this year.

I think Märklin have created a huge range of new and interesting items. What a team!

I especially like their offering the two CD Eurofima coaches (42745 and 43762 same as about 3-4 years ago) but with different running numbers.
That is really stretching the customer commitment, and in presumably new markets.
Also continuing releases for many other European countries.

I see the huge diesel-electric Pennsylvania ES44AC (38445) is only the start of a series - where many modern locos were painted in the colours of fallen flags of the US railroads.
That will be a collectors/afficianados dream.

Hi everyone,

Just been checking out the new items Marklin recently announced and was happy to see the new release of the BR103 (item no 39151)

After contemplating buying one second hand, I decided to wait and see if was going to be included in the new items for 2024.

One thing I noticed, the description says that the pantographs raise up and down digitally yet, if you look at the manual & the digital functions it doesn’t seem correct. Personally I’d prefer raising the pantographs myself since I hear the automatic ones can break easily.

Hopefully Marklin confirms the features before putting in my preorder.

Also, I looked at some of the new freight wagon where the description mentions a locomotive to suit. I’m looking forward to seeing what SNCF and NMBS/SNCB locomotives they come out with.

It is nice to see them going after markets that were previously overlooked. As somebody who models Switzerland, I have a lot of international coaches in my collection. The CD coaches most commonly seen in trains on Swiss tracks are the WLABmz sleepers attached to the Nightjet trains to Salzburg and Dresden. I was lucky enough to find these from LSM a while ago. The Salzburg train is very interesting, because it is a mix of Nightjet (OBB), SBB, MAV (Hungarian) with the CD sleeper at the end.

I had an earlier version of this night train (1/100) by combining coaches from the 42724 Paris-Budapest train (OBB and MAV coaches) with Roco's 26cm SBB EN coach and sleeper along with a few more OBB Eurofima coaches. At that time, there were no CD coaches on that run.

I think the CD coaches can be found into Germany and into Austria and I think as far as Venice in Italy too.

After contemplating buying one second hand, I decided to wait and see if was going to be included in the new items for 2024.

One thing I noticed, the description says that the pantographs raise up and down digitally yet, if you look at the manual & the digital functions it doesn’t seem correct. Personally I’d prefer raising the pantographs myself since I hear the automatic ones can break easily.

Hopefully Marklin confirms the features before putting in my preorder.

Also, I looked at some of the new freight wagon where the description mentions a locomotive to suit. I’m looking forward to seeing what SNCF and NMBS/SNCB locomotives they come out with.



I don't think that Maerklin is still using the same Piezo design that they did for the earlier 39579.

Hello

It’s confirmed: the pantographs are MANUAL on the 39151.
The descriptive text is a wrong copy-paste.

At Berlin HBF in November 2018, I photographed a CD train originating in Prague and going on to Hamburg.
The loco was a leased BR193 but painted in CD colours.

Note that the 20124 set is really an expansion track set for the Christmas train set that also has snow track, but you only get one point, so it is difficult to have a snow passing loop ... Crying

Maybe later in the year they will introduce another expansion set with the other point.

Märklin has announced several nice new models for 2024.

We Norwegians are not spoiled with many models from Märklin. Which is why I sent them a letter (on paper) early in the 1990s asking them to make more models from Scandinavia. I even received an answer, telling me to be patient. Well, here we are 30 years later and still no Norwegian passenger cars. But we will have the chance to buy the Swedish F 1200 steamer (item number 39490). This looks to be a beautiful model.

In case anyone from Märklin is reading this, please note that at least this customer wish that:
* sets with multiple identical waggons are released without the littranumber / road number. To make a prototypical train we need that each waggon has a different road number. We could then buy 30 identical waggons and add the road numbers ourselves.
* I want my model railroad to be as realistic as possible. This includes both passenger cars that are 1:87 in scale lengthwise. And I would like the start / acceleration to be even smoother than the models of today are capable of.

The biggest news for 2024 – in both meanings of the word – is Märklin item 55990. The Big Boy in 1 gauge. I have always been fascinated by “Spur 1”, but never bought anything of that scale. But this model makes me reconsider…


I am also extremely interested in what Roco will release this year. Some years ago, I switched from collecting only Märklin to collecting mainly Roco, together with some other brands. The main reason is because I wanted to run trains I am most familiar with from real life in Norway. I read somewhere that Roco would release their new models on January 12th, but on this thread I see the date 18th of January. It’s of course too late to make wishes for 2024, but if someone from Roco reads this, my wishes are:
- An all yellow Beilhack snow thrower in “Jernbaneverket” livery
- A “Norwegian” BR 52 steamer, road number 2770 “Stortysker”.
- El 18 in the all red paint scheme as it looked in the 1990s until it was painted in silver.
- More Swedish Rc-locomotives. I'd like an Rc5 and Rc6 in blue paint scheme, as well as an Rc4 (in all green paint with a red diagonal line) from Green Cargo. A former ÖBB 1043 in silver paint with a red line from TågAB would be nice. I would also love a model of Rc5 in orange paint with the text "SJ:s 300:e Rc-lok"


I guess we just have to wait another week to see what Roco will grant us.

some Norwegian passenger cars would be nice :) (personally i prefer them in in shorter Marklin style scale)
regarding EL 18, why not buy one from Amundsen Hobby they still have some in stock: https://www.amundsenhobby.no/webshop/produkt.php?selected_id=19180
A new br 52 in NSB edition might happen, but probably not as the 2770 as that already exist as 3417
but perhaps one with a snowplough? both big and small ones were used:

Some nice looking stuff, but finally an Xmas train that I would be okay with running around the tree - the other models have been way too nice to risk getting bumped/knocked but the new set and expansion pack are an instant buy for me!

For the christmas tree of 2025 and following years, the LGB set maybe a good choice...

Hi,

I thought that would be the case, it looks like Marklin copied and pasted the description from a previous version.

I have since placed a pre-order for this one. My main concern over the digitally controlled pantograph is mainly around the difficulties in having it repaired if I end up breaking it. Being in Perth Australia, there are no local authorised Marklin repairers.

For me, the simpler the better!

Broadway Limited Imports has also released one in this paint scheme, https://broadway-limited.com/products/7179-ge-es44ac-ns-8102-pennsylvania-railroad-heritage-unit-paragon4-sound-dc-dcc-smoke-ho

A side-by-side comparison of the Maerklin UP ES44AC and a Broadway UP ES44AC makes me think they both came from the same factory.

They have cooperated on several models before, and according to Broadway Limited, Märklin leased the ES44AC tooling from them. but note that Marklin also made some changes.
