Märklin began producing toys in Göppingen in 1859. The Märklineum, which was actually to be ceremoniously opened in a larger circle in mid-December, sets up a monument to the company's hardly manageable history and testifies to the ingenuity and adaptability of the model railroad market leader. The Märklineum can be visited under the usual Corona restrictions.

In many respects, Märklin's SNCF 241-A-58 (55085) is similar to the 241-A-65 preserved in Switzerland, but there are differences. Probably undeniable is that the gauge 1 model in green looks best and will boost the French market. 51 photos in large format.
