In 2004 Märklin released her first Einheitslokomotive Baureihe 05 for the DRG as Insider model.

It was the 05 001 in a red streamline coating.




Only three years later the Class 05 was again released as an Insider model.

Now numbered as 05 003 in it's original shape.




The 05 003 presented three times in static.







Even from a close distant, the model is longing for being admired...





The 05 003 goes with a tender 2'3 T 38,5 which makes it even larger than the Class 45 2'3 T 38 tender.




And finally on the Cochemer Bahn...

A propos...


In 2009 a second streamliner of this magnificent class arrived in the series Bellingrodt Edition.

Though visually identical to the red streamliner 05 001, this model not only received a new number, but was technically upgraded as well.

In 2012, the same model was released in an even more appealing black livery with orange/yellow line.

As a true hoax and LE 2013, the DB 05 003 was again released in a non prototypical and unorthodox steel blue livery, the so called "stahlblauer F-Zug-Farbgebung".

Besides, a Cab Forward Edition couldn't fail, hence the 2014 Insider locomotive 05 003 (DRG)
