The Northlander – a Märklin Legend
Crocodile, Adler, or Stork's Leg – Models inseparably linked with the Märklin brand. There is also a train in the world of Märklin, which has reached a similar aura: the Northlander. The real life prototype was built in 1957 in Europe as a first class TEE and ran starting in 1978 from Toronto in Canada up to the high North. Märklin presented a limited special model in the same year, a model subsequently reaching sensational collector prices. In 1998, five Northlander cars came back to Europe. Märklin supported this spectacular promotion and finally ranked the train in the gallery of the most striking Märklin prototypes. This new, finely detailed Insider model is updating this incredible, European-Canadian story in a perfect manner.
