Prototype information

Fireless steam locomotives, also known in Germany as steam accumulator locomotives, were preferred for industrial railroads where steam with which to fill the locomotive occurs practically as a byproduct. The energy supply for this kind of locomotive consists of a quantity of water heated beyond the boiling point of 100° Centigrade or 212° Fahrenheit. On the Henschel 0-8-0 locomotives the water capacity was 20 cubic meters or 5,283 gallons and the steam pressure was 20 Bar or 290 pounds per square inch. These units were affordable, used very little fuel and other supplies, and were very robust in daily switching work. For these reasons this type of motive power is still being used successfully in places such as the Mannheim power plant.


(Metal frame and mostly locomotive body.
cDigital locomotives with high-efficiency propulsion. Maximum speed and acceleration / delay are adjustable. Special motor with electronically enhanced load compensation or a compact bellshaped armature. Can be operated with Märklin transformers, in the Märklin Delta system or in the Märklin Digital system. One controllable auxiliary function (function), when the locomotive is being run in the Digital system.
dDigital decoder with additional, digitally controlled functions (f1, f2, f3 or f4) when operated with the 6021 Control Unit. The functions present depend on how the locomotive is equipped. Standard function (function) active during conventional operation.
HTriple headlights that change over with the direction of travel.
UMärklin close couplers in standard pocket with guide mechanism.
