2018 New Items

Pre-Order deadline: TBD

2018 New Items Brochure Now Available For Download!

Our 21st Annual MINITRIX Pre-Order Program is now in effect!  This is the one time of year we can offer additional discounts on these very high quality models.  Please read and completely understand our MINITRIX 2018 Pre-Order Program page before placing your 2018 Pre-Order!

Note: Please note that MINITRIX Club Models are purposely omitted from the listing below.  If you are a member of the MINITRIX Club and wish to purchase club models please contact us.  Your MINITRIX Club coupons will be required to purchase these models!

It will be a little while until prices are known.  For now all of the new items have been assigned the price of $25.00.  This is for customers who want to place their MINITRIX 2018 Pre-Order before the prices go online.  The $25.00 price assignment is selected purposely because that is our global minimum order and our shopping cart software will automatically enforce it.  So by assigning a price of $25.00 to each item this ensures customers can still check out with even just one item in their shopping cart.

 We would also like to invite all customers to have a look at our MINITRIX Models in Stock page to view our excellent selection of top quality MINITRIX models that are available for immediate shipment.

The official MINITRIX 2018 New items Brochure in English language is available as a PDF download by clicking the photo below.  The download file size is 18.3 MB.

 

MINITRIX produces top quality European model trains and accessories.  They are owned by MÄRKLIN, one of the world's most respected manufactures of model trains.  These extremely accurate models feature outstanding attention to detail and cutting edge propulsion systems.  Some models are factory equipped with Digital Command Control (DCC), sound and special lighting effects.  The product line is very large and offers an incredible variety.  Models are available from the earliest days of the railroads all the way through the modern era equipment of today.

Availability:  Items on this page were announced at the beginning of their respective model year and are released a few at a time throughout that year.  Many of the models shown on this page are one time limited editions and once sold out become discontinued.  Customers are strongly encouraged to place reservations for any items they are interested in.

Note:  The pricing shown is not in error.  We regret that we cannot offer a discount on the 2018 Museum Car.  The margin they are giving dealers is beyond razor thin.  In  Europe Museum Cars cannot be purchased through dealers.  They can only purchased at the MARKLIN museum and no discount is ever offered.  It would seem that MARKLIN wants to make sure it is not discounted in the US either.
