My locomotives, as per January 2014

Updated 13.04.2014

The version numbers, "Ver.", up to 2004, are from the Märklin Archiv CD database, Märklin no. 60520. After 2004 the version is sorted by the road number and numbered by me.  The sign "-" indicates that there are only one version, thus no number.
1981 and before: The production period, "Made" is taken from the Märklin Archiv, based on the model's details, as there were no serial numbers before 1982.
1982 and after: The production period is taken from the locomotive's serial number.  The first number (after the letter, if any) indicates the last figure in the production year.
In 1988 the number changed from six to eight digits.
In 2010 it changed from eight to nine digits.  The two first numbers (after the letter) indicates the production year.
The Ref. numbers under Remarks refers to the above mentioned Märklin Archive.

Tables of the serial number first letter and the colour can be seen in the bottom of this page.

If you like to see pictures of the locomotives, just click on the version number (or " - " ) and a photo will pop up, if available.

Background colour codes: Black = Steam locomotive Blue = Electric locomotive Red = Diesel locomotive

Märklin locomotive's serial numbers:

The Märklin locomotive's serial number often starts with a letter, after this list:
Letter Explanation
No letter = Electro-mechanical Reversing Unit
V = Electronically controlled electro-mechanical reversing unit (Vorshaltelektronik)
E = Electronically controlled electro-mechanical reversing unit or an Electronic reversing unit
R = 5 star propulsion,Regulated (Fünf-Sterne-Technik)
D = Digital control, usually decoder type c80 or c81
H = Digital control, High performance propulsion, usually decoder type c90, c91, fx or mfx
M = Delta (Mehrzugbetrieb)
S = C-Sinus-Motor (not exclusive, some Sinus locomotives are reported to have H)

The serial number label is black with coloured print. The tendency of my locomotives indicates this "time table":
Colour Digits Years Remarks
    before 1982 No serial numbers
Silver 6 1982 - 1987  
Silver 8 1988 - 1991  
White 8 1992 - 1996 Also my 39221 from 2000
Orange 8 1996 - 2005  
Green 8 2006 - 2009  
Green 9 2010 - 201?  

From 1982 to 2009: The first number, eventually behind the letter, indicates the last number in the calendar year of production.
From 1010:  The first two numbers after the letter indicates the two last numbers in the calendar year of production.
