MSI’s: Marklin 8600 car type

The first MSI using the Marklin 8600 car type is lettered for Carlberg, it was produced in 1977 with Koll’s #77001. The Koll’s catalog states the edition size as 800 which makes the number produced considerable, but this car is none the less rare and seldom offered for sale. The Carlsberg car is not depicted in this collection so a brief description of its appearance is in order, it varies from the regular production model 8608 in that it has red coloration filling in the five small details on the lower green stripe running under logo otherwise the cars are the same. This collection begins with a 1978 car lettered for Atlantik with Koll’s #78701 with edition size of 500.

*Special note: MSI – Kraft editions using the Marklin 8500 car type started in 1984 with the only two car set released in the series, this first set included KRAFT NUR GUTES VERDIENT DEN NAMEN KRAFT and KRAFT Tomaten-Ketchup. The Kraft – Marklin series included releases with the Marklin 8500 car type as well as the 8615 car type which can be viewed in the MSI 8615 category. The series was distinguished by the unique design of the packaging which included cardboard sleeve illustrated with differing views of the “Kraft Train”, a styrofoam block was included inside the sleeve that contained the freight car and track accessories. It was possible to assemble a small oval track with sidings after collecting all the Kraft releases. All the Kraft editions are considered quite rare and even more so with the original packaging, but they are occasionally available through German dealers.

Industry Prints

Industry Prints are Marklin freight wagons designed and painted by private enterprises. Modellbahn Freund, St. Louis, MO imported and sold these cars, the plastic boxes for cars sold by Modellbahn Freund were affixed a label with this stores name and address. Sometimes collectors have suggested Modellbahn Freund commissioned these cars, and they were printed in the United States, this is a mistake; all ‘Industry Prints’ were printed in Germany by Baur-Druck Bad, Waldsee and sold by Schmidt, Germany. Cars were distributed in the United States and Germany. The earliest ‘Industry Print’ in this collection is a gondola from 1983.

Further research can be found at www.z-freunde.de, much of the information given in this post was kindly provided by this organization. *Information provided has been provided after much research, new details and corrections will be made as more is learned about these cars.

Kraft Marken-Express cars 1984-1986

In 1984-1986 Marklin released in cooperation with Kraft 11 special imprint cars in Z scale. Nine of the cars were included in printed cardboard sleeves comprising car or cars respectfully along with track or accessories comprising a complete train and layout if you collected them all. The illustrations on the sleeves are fun, they depict the car included hooked up to the other cars in the train in their progression of release. It has taken me many years to collect all of these cars, each features the little printed ‘m’ for Marklin notating a special release car. Two cars that were printed at the same time as the “Marken-Express” cars were ‘Frapan’ and ‘Knack & Back’, these cars differed from the “Marken-Express” releases, they included illustrated Kraft product sleeves. The Marklin style 8615 and 8600 freight cars were used for these two editions.

Here is the list of Marklin Z Kraft cars in order of release with Koll’s numbers:

1. NUR GUTES VERDIENT DEN NAMEN KRAFT + Tomaten-Ketchup:  two car set that included a BR 89 loco. Koll’s #84710 (1984). Marken-Express release.
