Strong, Nimble, and Rugged – the 86, a Jack-of-All-Trades. It is a must for every Märklin railroader committed to Era III. The class 86 was an important jack-of-all-trades on the German Federal Railroad. The 86 is now being issued again – as a finely detailed model with high-tech features. Whether it is pulling a short limited-stop fast passenger train, long passenger trains, local branch line consists, or in freight service: The class 86 will bring variety to a model railroad. Stories can be told from the heyday of railroading when freight was still transported by rail to every corner of West Germany. The right cars are rolling as well into the Märklin program with the new four-part branch line freight train.
