Marklin C Track Plans

The Marklin C track plans were developed specifically for HO scale trains that were produced by Marklin way back in the mid-1930s. This type of trackage is most notable for its “three-rail” system. This is a popular choice of model train beginners choose to start with and we offer three track plans that you can choose from.

If you’re a railway enthusiast and you want to create a track specifically for Marklin trains, you have come to the right place. We will give you the inspiration you need to build your own model layout and ideas on how to incorporate HO scale buildings and details to make your track stand out.
