At the end of July 2021, western Germany suffered one of the worst flood disasters in German history. The damage left behind by the floods is devastating. Apartments and houses are no longer habitable. Infrastructure has been destroyed. Not to mention that people had to lose their lives. Rebuilding what was destroyed will take years.
Thanks to the overwhelming solidarity and willingness to help throughout Germany, help could be provided quickly. Märklin also wanted to support and developed a special model of the VT 92.5 diesel powered railcar. The sum raised by the sale of the special model will benefit those affected by the flood disaster in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate.
On this page we would like to inform you regularly about the progress of the projects supported by Märklin!
