Okay, you caught me. Yes, I was saw the post concerning the 2002 Insider Lok.
If I read it correct, it is the 'Flying Hamburg" which happens to be one of
the more famous historic trains of the German Rails. The Flying Hamburg is
essentially a streamlined, 2 unit diesel railcar that could reach incredible
speeds. It started running the rail in the 1930s I believe. Interesting
enough, these railcars ran for many years and were seen in a variety of paint
schemes. Later, additional cars were added to the consist. Half of one is
preserved in the rail museum in Nürnberg.
Heckl has made a variety of these. The one I have in the collection is purple
and cream. The colors are very similar to the Rheingold colors. I love mine
and if in fact Märklin will be coming out with one, I am eager to see it (and
of course order one for comparison).
