The message counts: tolerance of all views!
This generated a great response: On July 9, 2021, the DB put an ICE 3 - the multiple unit Tz 304 "Munich" with the two power cars 403 022-7 and 403 504-4 - on the rails. With this, the railway wants to set an example for diversity and tolerance, for a respectful and trusting coexistence and for an appreciative treatment of the diversity of all people. The multiple unit runs in the schedule of the ICE 3 and as the "Railbow ICE" carries a very special message through the entire Federal Republic of Germany. We can only subscribe to this message for diversity, tolerance and respectful interaction with one another. Märklin and TRIX also offer this special ICE for H0 model railroad fans.
Märklin H0: The majority of Märklin products are manufactured in this gauge on a scale of 1:87. Due to the high operational reliability of the Märklin H0 three-wire alternating current system, Märklin has contributed to making this gauge the most widely used in the world. All Märklin H0 locomotives have been digitally controllable as standard since 2000.
Märklin Z-gauge: Model railway enthusiasts do not only opt for Z-gauge on a scale of 1:220 when space is limited. In Europe Märklin is the only large-scale manufacturer of Z-gauge, which appeals not only to passionate layout builders but also to collectors.
