175 years of the firm Borsig - the locomotive building pioneer of Europe. When August Borsig founded his machine factory and Iron foundry in Berlin in 1837, nobody suspected that this would be the beginning of what would become one of the largest locomotive factories in the world. As early as 1841, this after careful examination of the commonly used English and American types of locomotives, August Borsig built the locomotive BORSIG with the factory number 1. With its improved drivetrain and axle configuration, on 21 July 1841 this locomotive won a race against an English locomotive with a 10-minute lead. From that day forward, the good fortunes of the Borsig locomotive factory commenced. This ended in 1954 after more than 16,000 locomotives had been delivered. During the era of steam, Borsig grew into Europe’s largest locomotive builder, whilst the company took second place worldwide. In honour of the 175th anniversary of Borsig, Märklin will manufacture a special five-part series of selected H0 models, which will be completed in 2016 and issued on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of the steam-locomotive construction in Germany. Each year a beautifully detailed locomotive with a first-class technical equipment will be manufactured as a once-off series. Each model will be sold together with a decorative display case, the back wall of which has a splendid relief image of the characteristic Borsig city-gates. In addition to the relief image, there is also a metal plaque on which the factory number as per the delivery book is engraved. To complete the theme, a high-quality paper printed extract from Borsig's delivery book will also accompany the model.
