And then for us Americans (and Europeans too) there is the Union Pacific "Big Boy."  This year MARKLIN is offering a fantastic American starter set with two trains; a Union Pacific freight with the "Big Boy" at the point, and a Santa Fe passenger train with aluminum cars and an AB set of F7's.  Here's how it is described in the catalog:

"TERRIFIC!  The Americans say terrific, when they are totally enthusiastic about something.  Terrific means something such as colossal, fantastic, great - which rather exactly describes thei American digital premium starter set.  This starter set with two trains really only consists of superlatives: the longest HO freight train (170cm/67"), the largest starter set track layout (11.40 meters/over 37 feet of C track).  The steam and diesel locomotives in theis set are both equipped with digital high efficiency propulsion, sound effects circuits, and other controllable functions.  The new boxcar freight cars and the streamliner passenger cars (with aluminum bodies) represent the finest in the are of model building.  The wide radius C track turnouts are already equipped with turnout motors, and the 6021 control unit offers the entire range of digital enjoyment right from the start - terrific!"  (MODEL TRAINS CLASSICS, LLC has the two rail DC TRIX rendition of the Big Boy, the same model as the AC version, on display at the shop)

MODEL TRAIN CLASSICS, LLC also features a selection of unique MARKLIN and HAMO pieces in our museum. Everything from charming four-wheeled tinplate coaches to luxurious MITROPA coaches. Come in and take a look around. Always a good selection of "Starter Sets" too....

MARKLIN track is always a fascination, and we have examples of HO track from the 30's to the present. Unfortunately the much loved "M" (for metal) track is virtually no longer available ... and yes, we know, its passing is much lamented!

​MARKLIN TRAINS! The name evokes memories, stories, wishes, feelings and dreams. And dreams are even more beautiful when they are possible.

Today's world news chases us through a constantly changing hot and cold stream of feelings, but you can set the news for yourself in your world of model railroading. Perhaps that is the reason for the growing popularity of this hobby. There are more and more model railroad display layouts providing fun and excitement for the entire family, and increasing numbers of people visit the MARKLIN booths at the public shows. MARKLIN reports that interest in all age groups is immense, most of the model railroaders are well informed, and they get important ideas for the MARKLIN assortment from the discussions in these groups.
