      Maxi is the version of Marklin's 1 gauge (Profi) line that was originally
      for children. The cars and locs are made completely of metal, are, in
      general, simpler, much less prototype, are generally less expensive than
      their Profi 1 gauge line which is aimed at adults. Some of the maxi line is
      reasonably close to the prototype and mixes well with the Profi 1 gauge
      line.

      As a general term, 1 gauge means a track of 45 mm and (for Marklin) a scale
      of 1/32 so both the maxi line and the Profi 1 gauge run on the same track
      (again, mostly). The maxi are designed (again, in general) to run on curves
      with a 600mm radius while the Profi 1 gauge demands a 1020mm radius.

      Both Marklin and others some make quite expensive 1 gauge locomotives. If
      you have the budget (I certainly don't) you can buy very prototipical
      machines that cost upwards of $12,000. It is fairly common to see steam
      locos new at $2,000.


      >Could someone explain the difference between Gauge 1 and MAXI?

      Maxi means expensive!

      Im kidding, actually, but it's true. MAXI is Maerklins line of Large Scale
      trains that run on G guage [LGB] track.
