MARKLIN/TRIX Surprise Model for 2019 - HO scale S 3/6 Steam Locomotive The 'Hochhaxige' / 'High Stepper'

MARKLIN/TRIX Surprise Model for 2019 - HO scale S 3/6 Steam Locomotive The 'Hochhaxige' / 'High Stepper'

Marklin and Trix surprised everyone today with the unexpected announcement of a new model of the beautiful era I S 3/6 steam locomotive variant nicknamed the 'Hochhaxige' / 'High Stepper'. The prototype and model feature visually striking extra large driving wheels which in turn led to a higher boiler than other S 3/6 locomotives.  These large driver improved performance pulling the express passenger trains the loco was designed for.

The locomotive is completely new tooling and is constructed mostly of metal. The running gear is intricately constructed of die-cast metal with a partially open bar frame. There is an open view through the running gear. The cab is modelled in detail. The lamps are designed to be white. The locomotive has 5-pole high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel. The locomotive also has a factory-installed smoke unit, a lighted cab, a light for oncoming trains, which can be controlled in digital operation, and an mfx+ decoder with sound. There is a close coupling mechanism between the locomotive and tender with a "display case position". The locomotive has intricate smoke box door steps, and the tender has a hook coupler and an air hose on the rear. Piston rod protection sleeves are also included.
