The VT 11.5 Trans Europe Express was designed as a 7-part train and was operated this way as a rule. Two open seating cars, a compartment car, a dining car, and a bar car were coupled between the two powered end cars. Adhering to the offerings of all TEE connections, the cars of this powered rail car train had only first class seating.

Three additional intermediate cars were permitted only in exceptional cases of extremely high passenger loads. The 24 carat fine gold plating provides an allround magnificent look. The finest gold encounters Märklin quality Handmade On this special model, we place special value on the fact that each grab iron is properly seated: Our experts gold plate each individual car in five extensive work steps.

During the galvanizing process the entire train is plated inside and out with 24 carat fine gold. This model thus combines like no other the technical tour de force and quality of the Märklin brand with the sensuousness of gold.
