Beginner's Models with Extensive Features
Technically sophisticated as well as visually impressive beginner's models in the proven Märklin quality. They allow you to reduce "Start Up for Adults" to a common denominator because these models appeal specifically to returning model railroaders. Moreover, they are highly interesting for price-conscious advanced model railroaders. Regardless of whether it is individual locomotives are entire starter sets all of the models in this line will impress you with an overall good price/value relationship. In addition to the wide variety of sound functions and the sturdy metal construction of the locomotive body, here we also offer Märklin right down to the details. Equally also our completely new tooling for the class 193. In the prototype, it is a regular production locomotive from the Vectron type program at Siemens and is at home on many rail lines.
Prototype: Class 193 electric locomotive painted and lettered for Railpool GmbH, Munich, Germany. Built by Siemens as a regular production locomotive from the Vectron type program.
A car set to go with this locomotive to make up a train can be found in the Märklin H0 assortment under item number 46190.
A DC model can be found in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 22190.
36190 (Trix 22190) – Class 193 Electric Locomotive Since the locomotive families "Eurosprinter" and "Eurorunner" no longer correspond to the latest standards, Siemens presented the locomotive platform "Vectron" at the InnoTrans 2010 transportation exhibition in Berlin as a further development. It is being offered in two performance classes as an AC, a DC, and a multiple system locomotive as well as also as a diesel locomotive. By the fall of 2010, Siemens built five electric prototypes in...
36190 (Trix 22190) – Class 193 Electric Locomotive Since the locomotive families "Eurosprinter" and "Eurorunner" no longer correspond to the latest standards, Siemens presented the locomotive platform "Vectron" at the InnoTrans 2010 transportation exhibition in Berlin as a further development. It is being offered in two performance classes as an AC, a DC, and a multiple system locomotive as well as also as a diesel locomotive. By the fall of 2010, Siemens built five electric prototypes in different versions: 193 901 and 902 (multiple system - MS), 193 921 and 922 (alternating current - AC) and 191 951 (direct current - DC). In October of 2011 followed another DC locomotive in the form of 191 952. The underbody of a Vectron consists of two side sills, a center sill, two pivot cross members, two transformer cross members, and the cross members for the ends. Standard as well as wide gauge trucks can be installed on this locomotive. The welded truck has a wheel set guide with triangular control arms whereby the power transmission is done with deeply linked pivots and flexi-coil springs. The self-supporting superstructure consists of the cabs, the engine room side walls, and three removable roof segments. Crash elements on the ends of the locomotive are designed to collapse in a controlled manner in the event of collision and thus protect the engineer from injuries. The proven partially spring-loaded pinion hollow shaft drive that has been developed further is used as the drive on the locomotive. The "Vectrons" have quickly enjoyed popularity among private operators and leasing firms. Meanwhile over 200 units in different configurations have left the Siemens plant. Around another 200 units have been ordered. Mitsui Rail Capital Europe (MRCE) with 56, European Locomotive Leasing (ELL) with 43, Railpool with 14, and Unicredit Leasing, Inc. with eight locomotives have the largest batches of "Vectrons". Private operators with larger rosters are BLS Cargo AG (15) and boxXpress (8). The German Railroad, Inc. has not yet ordered any "Vectrons", but does order as needed from the leasing firms. By contrast, DB Schenker Rail Polska (DBSRP) that belongs to DB runs 23 DC Vectrons on its roster for freight service in Poland.more
