In 2009, Märklin celebrated its 150th anniversary. However, from what was initially a fairly broad range of toys, over time the company focused on the manufacture of "electric trains" in various sizes. The outstanding quality of the products made the name Märklin synonymous with model railroading worldwide. Even today, the material metal is an essential element in the manufacture of locomotives, which thereby gain additional value in addition to their proverbial reliability and performance.
Märklin Gauge H0: The majority of Märklin products are manufactured in this 1:87 scale. Thanks to the high operational reliability of the Märklin H0 three-conductor AC system, Märklin has helped to make this size the most widely used in the world. All Märklin H0 locomotives have been digitally controllable as standard since 2000.
Märklin Gauge 1: Märklin builds the "king gauge" of model railroading on a scale of 1:32. Size 1 products are characterized by particularly prototypical detailing and excellent running characteristics which, together with the high weight of the model due to the use of metal, convey a fascinating model railroad experience. Of course, the system provider Märklin also supplies all the track material in gauge 1.
Märklin Gauge Z: It's not only when space is at a premium that model railroaders opt for Gauge Z on a scale of 1:220. In Europe, Märklin is the only large-scale manufacturer of the "smallest", which appeals not only to passionate layout builders but also to collectors and lifestyle enthusiasts of both sexes.
