6 Totally Different Silo Cars

This is half of the Marklin 00723 set. So you will get a set of 6 random cars from the full set.

Fine-grained and dust-forming products such as aluminum hydroxide, aluminum sodium sulfate, quartz sand, cement, or food products such as sugar or salt cannot take moisture. They are transported in containers that have filling openings and unloading equipment. The type Ucs 908 is a car meeting these requirements. In the Fifties and Sixties over 1,000 units of these cars were purchased. In each case the car was assigned exclusively to one type of freight load (chemical materials or food products). They differ from each other in things such as the presence or form of a manual brake platform. Over the course of time the DB leased or bought quite a number of these cars such as to the Railroad Freight Service Stock Company (EVA) or the Central German Railroad Company. These 8.54 meter / 27 foot 9 inch long cars ran in mixed freight trains or as unit trains for specific customers.

Prototype: 6 German Federal Railroad (DB) and Railroad Freight Service Stock Company (EVA) two-axle type Ucs 908 silo cars. The cars look as they did around 1988.
Model: All the cars include separately applied metal ladders. Five cars include separately applied brakeman's platforms, seven cars do not have brakeman's platforms. There are different basic paint schemes and repaired areas on the cars as well as authentic weathering. All the cars in the display are individually packaged. Length over the buffers per car 10.0 cm / 3-15/16. DC wheelset per car E700580.

A class 140 electric locomotive to go with these cars can be found in the Märklin H0 assortment under item number 37407.
