    Google Earth POI's (Points Of Interest) kmz file.


  • Usually Märklin makes one or two special cars "sonderwagen - Treff wagen" in each of the 3 scales "Z", "H0" and "1" to commemorate the "Märklintage".

    See below for photos of the special cars.


    These cars are typically for sale at the "Märklin Erlebniswelt" and at the "Stauferpark", but any dealer with any respect for himself, no matter where in the world, can get you the commemorative car - at a price.

    It seems that Märklin supplies these cars to the dealers although the cars in fact ONLY should be sold during the "Märklintage".

    See my As I see it article about this.

    It is also worth to mention that these cars very seldom hold their price.

    It is not unusual to be able to buy these cars some years later at a second-hand market or a dealer with second-hand items for perhaps 50 % of the original price although the very first cars do keep their price.

    The high prices that the first "Museum-cars" have reached are most likely not realistic with the cars from the "Märklintage". The production numbers are simply to high.

    Other manufacturers

    schuco Märklintage 2013
    Several of the other manufacturers who are present ( WIKING, Brekina, PIKO etc. ) will typically also have a speciality "Märklintage" item for sale.

    Brekina seem to have had some good offers, while WIKING by far is the most expensive - almost twice as expensive.

    The "Märklintage" model-cars from WIKING - IMHO - are also a little dubious.

    It is not really worth the money to get an "ordinary" model-car in a clear plastic box, where the print "Märklintage 2011" is on the plastic box.

    It shouldn't be THAT difficult to produce a ordinary car, but e.g. in a special color-scheme; especially for the "Märklintage"; just a matter of using a different color of plastic in the plastic-mold-machines.

    Cars and locomotives to assemble yourself

    At the Märklin stand in the "Stauferpark" there usually is a car and a locomotive that you can assemble yourself :
