MÄRKLIN 00/H0 from 1935 until 1960

In 1935 Märklin launched their three-rail AC 00 scale at the Leipzing spring toy fair.

They presented two electric locomotives: a steam R 700 and an electric RS 700. "700" indicated the name of the reversing system for the new locomotives.

The “700” system included a hand-lever in the rear of the locomotive for changing direction. Remote reversing was possible through “Fernumschalter” U 700.

In 1938 the reversing system of the locomotives was improved with the "800" system that allowed for electromagnetic remote reversing by pushing the button on the transformer.

The steam R 800 and electric RS 800 were among the first locomotives with this "800" reversing system.
