This model of the restored express train steam locomotive, road number 01 150, is being produced in a one-time series only for the Märklin-Händler-Initiative (MHI) or Märklin Dealer Initiative (Exlusiv program), and available at ajckids.com. This locomotive will be delivered in 2012.
Märklin is participating financially to a considerable extent in the restoration of the great steam locomotive legends of German and international railroad history. Together with other partners such as the tireless donation collector Olaf Teubert, a former locomotive engineer for road number 01 150, the German Railroad Foundation, and the German Railroad, Inc. have created the financial basis to have road number 01 150 overhauled at the Meiningen Steam Locomotive Works to keep it in operating condition. The locomotive will be operated by the association "Traditionsgemeinschaft Bw Halle P e.V." which is based at the DB Museum in Halle/Saale. The locomotive will be used in the future in historic railroad service all over Germany.
Charlie's Tip: This model can be found in an AC version in the Märklin H0 assortment under item no. Marklin 39017.
