When Märklin introduced the first clockwork railroad at the
Leipzig Fair in 1891, a legacy of innovation and excellence was
established. Over the years Märklin has continued this
tradition by bringing the finest quality and most technologically
advanced products to the marketplace. Märklin was the first
major model train manufacturer to recognize the interest in
prototypical multi-train operation. This led to the development of
Märklin's multi-train control systems - Digital and DELTA.
Since the introduction in 1986 of the Digital system in the
U.S.A., sales of multi-train control products has risen
dramatically. Märklin's state-of-the-art system allows
simultaneous operation of up to 80 locomotives and 256 solenoid
accessories all on the same layout. This makes operating model
trains more fun and realistic! In 1992, Märklin added a new
dimension to HO starter sets and entry level operation with the
introduction of the DELTA multi-train control system. With DELTA
you can operate four or five trains simultaneously and
independently on a layout. The DELTA components have been discontinued; however, there are still many enthusiasts using the DELTA system, therefore you can still find information about DELTA on our website.
Although Digital systems can be used to operate
trains produced by other manufacturers, the system is designed to
easily combine with Märklin's HO and 1 Gauge trains for
prototypical multi-train operation on the layout. Our comprehensive
multi-train control system allows easy entry for the beginner or
total command control for the advanced layout operator. Let
Märklin's Digital bring realism to your model
