Märklin Museum Cars:

Home English Pages

Since 1985, Märklin offers each year a special Museum Car. This special item is only exclusive available in the Märklin Museum in Göppingen. This Museum Cars became in the years so popular as a collectors item that a regular trade started via internet. The cars are so exclusive that you can only purchase 1 piece during your visit at the museum. This is a strictly rule made by Märklin to prevent that traders are buying lots of them and dump them on the market. When the first of this museum cars came out in 1985 it was only available in scale H0. It took a long time before this one was sold out and it looked like it was a one time thing. Later on the sales became to run and the decision was token to continue this with a 1986 type. The first one had a sale price of DM 25,00 and these day collectors will pay around € 1300,00 for the 1985 one with box. In 1987 Märklin the Museum Car came also in Z scale and a year later in scale 1. Later in 1997 when Märklin purchased the company Trix they offered a Trix HO and N model. Until 1990 both sides of the cars had a picture or description that had something to do with Märklin. After that year the motives on the cars where showing company names of companies from Göppingen.

On December 24,  2012 the first Märklin Museum Car arrived at the Rosenbahn. It is year number 1993 and is a nice combination with a truck. This model is from time Period I, what is not the period of the Rosenbahn, so there where some doubts before buying it.

Rosenbahn is still not a collecting place og Märklin Museum Cars, because of the time period of most of this cars. Some of the cars doesn’t look as nice as other but for collectors is that no problem at all. Bit by bit more of this cars will be added to the Rosenbahn because this collecting virus started after the doubts in the beginning.

For a complete overview of this special Märklin series we could recomment a visit of the website of Lokkie . You will find on his website all pictures of this series.
