My Start with Märklin. The classic steam powered train operations were still indispensable as motive power on the German Federal Railroad well into the Seventies. The heavy steam locomotives created an incomparable atmosphere with their impressive background of sounds, fascinating running gear movement, and immense clouds of smoke and steam.
