Märklin has made a very detailed SNCF 241A 4-8-2 locomotive in gauge 1 (DCC electric). Most Märklin gauge 1 is based on German or Swiss prototype, so this is a first. It arrived this week and I had a run this afternoon with a J&M Models Orient Express:

Thanks for the video Fred.

I assume this is a limited edition model from Marklin and are they still available or all sold out ?

Hello Russell,
The complete production was pre-ordered, so Märklin is out of stock. Some hobby shops might still have one.
I read on a French forum that Märklin might make a EST or ETAT version, but I do not know when.

I wonder why more manufacturers don't seem to want to offer a battery powered option on their locos?
Märklin and other German Gauge 1 manufacturers like Kiss and KM1 do not supply battery power since their trains are normally run on indoor layouts (or kept in glass cases or boxes). I am one of the few that run these outside in the garden and I am considered a bit of a nut by doing that.

Hi,
I think I've seen your channel on YouTube. I love that model, I've got an O gauge MTH one.
Your videos are great, so many cool things I've never seen before!
I'm planning on getting an Aster steam engine for my nephews, soon, & hoping to find a space where I might ask advice, on occasion. (I've never run a live steam).
Thanks for the video!

Thanks,
This forum is a good place to ask advice about live steam.
Regards
Fred
