Gebr. Märklin & Cie. GmbH, Göppingen
Quality and innovation for over 150 years ...
Märklin, the long-standing model railway manufacturer from Göppingen in Baden-Württemberg is one of the cooperation partners of the Saxon STEAM RAILWAY ROUTE. With a 150-year-long history, Märklin stands for tradition, quality, constant innovation and products of world renown. Milestones in the company’s history are presented at the impressive Märklin Museum - World of Adventure, located in Göppingen. In 2007, Märklin’s range of products was expanded with models in 1:22.5 scale under the LGB (Lehmanns-Groß-Bahn) brand. The planning of an LGB model of the Saxon I K No. 54, which, like no other locomotive, is the signature feature of the Saxon STEAM RAILWAY ROUTE, was the reason for the cooperation between the model railway manufacturer and the STEAM RAILWAY ROUTE.
The model of the locomotive is new tooling, which will feature traction tire, a DCC interface, integrated footplate lighting and a smoke generator. The headlights change with the direction of travel. A powerful motor drives all of the axles.
Every two years, the Märklin Days attract huge numbers of (model) railway enthusiasts to Göppingen.
