The blue box.

Visitors at Märklin will see what appears to be a simple blue box everywhere they turn. This inconspicuous box is the product of more than two years of joint development from Märklin and SSI SCHAEFER. This unique box is the solution for transporting the high-quality yet delicate products safely through production. Anyone who experiences the dedication with which the employees replicate every detail of the historical trains can easily understand why both companies invested so much time and work in creating this simple yet brilliant carrier system for transporting the locomotives. Today, roughly 10,000 blue boxes reliably circulate through Märklin’s production. A robust slot and screwdriver system developed specifically for the Swabian company firmly holds the small models in place during transportation. This is a solution which can be quickly fitted and emptied.
