Default Märklin SNCF 241A Mountain locomotive

Märklin has made a very detailed SNCF 241A 4-8-2 locomotive in gauge 1 (DCC electric). Most Märklin gauge 1 is based on German or Swiss prototype, so this is a first. It arrived this week and I had a run this afternoon with a J&M Models Orient Express:

Thanks for the video Fred.
Magnificent engine the 241A and visually Marklin have done a fantastic job even though I am not convinced that the whistle sound is right, but I am not a fan of sound on electric loco's anyway.
Looks fantastic with those coaches and you can imagine it leaving la Gare Est with the Orient Express. A great addition to your extensive collection and sure to be a sought after collector's model in the future.

Pity Aster didn't do the 241A and did the 241P in live steam as I prefer the look of Est region 241A , but I can't afford the Aster 241P anyway so that's out of the question. I run only live steam with no track power so for me it would an expensive shelf queen but beautiful.
I assume this is a limited edition model from Marklin and are they still available or all sold out ?

Hello Russell,
The complete production was pre-ordered, so Märklin is out of stock. Some hobby shops might still have one.
I read on a French forum that Märklin might make a EST or ETAT version, but I do not know when.
Regards
Fred
