    In 2015, the Märklin Magazin is celebrating its 50th anniversary (1965-2015). The first pre-production class E 03 locomotive was placed into service in 1965, the same year as the first appearance of the Märklin Magazin. The Märklin Magazin is still considered a classic in the model railroad industry, just as the E 03 is also still a classic today and stands out as the ideal choice for an anniversary locomotive.
