MARKLIN/TRIX Flying Scotsman in HO Announced!

MARKLIN/TRIX Flying Scotsman in HO Announced!

Marklin and Trix suprised everyone today with the announcement of the new HO scale Class A3 "Flying Scotsman" steam locomotive to help celebrate the 100th birthday of the real locomotive! 

The "Flying Scotsman" was a steam locomotive that had been in service with the London and North Eastern Railway since 1924. It was developed by Nigel Gresley and quickly gained notoriety due to its illustrious name. The locomotive achieved a record in 1928 when it covered the 632 km route between London and Edinburgh without stopping. In 1934, it became the first steam locomotive in Britain to reach a speed of 160.9 km/h. During the Second World War, she had to exchange her green livery for black, but was later given it back. After several changes of ownership, the National Railway Museum in York bought the locomotive in 2004 and completely restored it by 2016. In 2023, the "Flying Scotsman" celebrates its 100th anniversary and will adorn the H0 assortment of Märklin and Trix.

The locomotive features full sound, high-performance drive and dynamic steam/smoke along with many lighting options and Marklin's typical attention to detail.   See all the details at the links below.
