Marklin and TRIX have announced an amazing 'surprise' locomotive for 2024 - the stunning BR 18 323 of the DB .

For all the details, PDFs, video, and pricing see the links below! This loco is bound to sell out quickly so please get yourt orders in ASAP. The exciting news is they have already been produced and will be arriving in the next few weeks!

From Marklin/Trix:

It was a real icon on DB tracks until the late sixties. The powerful Express Steam Locomotive 18 323, which has what it takes to become a star in the Märklin program as a perfectly designed model.
It was in use until 1969 as an extremely strong and fast unit all over West Germany under the management of the German Federal Railroad Central Bureau. The new Trix model is thereby a real highlight in any collection and on any layout set in the significant DB Era III. Its appearance in the midst of the ultramodern diesel and electric locomotives and the widely spread standard design steam locomotives at that time will attract a great deal of attention as in the real-life prototype. With unusual stories linked with this German locomotive icon. Still two of these good Maffei units have been preserved: Road numbers 18 323 and 18 316 harken back in Offenburg and Mannheim to this Baden-Bavarian tour de force in German locomotive construction.
