Pic #4 shows some very old Marklin passenger cars. Some have chrome wheels and couplings. They are from the 40s, to early 60s. All in mint condition.
Pic #1 shows a Rheingold car set from the 70s. Metal construction. Tables have working table lights. This is when Marklin began making close coupling trains so the cars when coupled are very close to each other. More realistic.
Pic #2 shows another Rheingold car set. Primex is made by Marklin. Primex is made a little more affordable with a little less detail. Same company.
Pic #3 shows newer (1980s) passenger cars. I really like the video car. Having travelled in Europe quite extensively, their trains are highly efficient, smooth, quiet, fast and yes, they have fun cars.
