These are collectible boxed sets from the 1980s and 1990s. They are meant to go with the Alaska engines. Lader fire engine is a nice addition and it's lader extends all the way.

The second pics show another set for the Alaska engine. All metal construction. Doors on each side slide open.

Pic #3 shows a variety of cabooses. I didn't know cabooses came in various sizes. There are two low riding cars in front. These are for heavy vehicles and have eight axles each. They ride very close to the tracks. These are from the 1980s and 90s.

Pic #4 shows more Marklin from the 1960s to 80s. All metal. I especially like the North American freight cars and Marklin did a fantastic job of it. Underneath are European passenger trains (Holland and French) and European freight trains.

    My ex neighbor was a good friend of mine and really into these. What guage (size) are these cars for? THey look awsome and the best part is that they're still in the box.

    Thank you for the nice comment.
    On this page, everything is Marklin HO. Yes, I have all the original boxes for the collection. It is important to have the original boxes as it adds something like 20% to the actual value of the item. However, there are replica boxes out there that look aged and identical. A trained eye can tell the original from the fake. Most of what you are looking at on this page was bought in the 80s and 90s. Have a great day.

    Was just searching around for pricing info of these trains and found your site. My dad was stationed in Germany from 1951 to 1953. We also joined him there a month, after his arrival there. During that time he collected (for us two sons) a long passenger train (the passenger cars a lot like what you haved pictured) a medium sized freight train and what he called "The Goat" a small sized freight train. When I say large, medium and small, it means the differen car lengths, no a different gauge. The same with the engines. The difference is that all the engines are representative of the coal burning type, which was still prominant right after WWII. Do you have any sources to show what this vintage of trains are worth? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Also, I have since gone to displaying my trains you you have! Get lots of comments on them!

    Hello Richard. My apologies for he long delay in responding, divorce will do that to a person. Would you have pictures to email to me so I can take a close look at what you have ? I do have Marklin catalogues and German value catalogues from Kohll in Germany. There are variations to certain Marklin car or wagon that make a big difference. Use caution if your engines have not been run for a long time as the oil tends to dry up in the engines. If you still have the Marklin trains and have photos, let me know and I will provide you with a email address. I will then do my best to let you know if you have important pieces in your collection. Have a great day.
