Are you one of those who have Scandinavian locomotives installed on your Märklin Central Station 2, and that misses Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish trains in the selection of train icons? And therefor have to choose either the blank logo or standard icon with the three question marks on it? It’s understandable that Märklin only wants to have their own train models represented in the locomotives icon selection. But they still have a limited number of their locomotives placed on the list, the same applies to cranes, wagons, and other digital equipment.

To me it was just a great irritation – why have the opportunity to have pictures of the locomotives on the controller, when one does not get to add the trains one have and use. At the same time, I had a wish to quickly distinguish different trains of the same type, for example I have four NSB EL18. Moreover, some of the locomotives have two decoder addresses, and it would be great to add a symbols or train numbers on the icons that says something about the decoder / device you want to select.

Therefore I searched for ages on the internet for a way to add pictures onto CS2. And finally, on a forum, I found the solution. So now I have added pictures of all my locomotives into the list of the trains and devices installed. So now I don’t have to read through trains names to find the unit I’m looking for to control. Here you can see how to proceed in order to upload your own locomotive icons (or symbols if you prefer) into your Märklin Central Station 2. Read NB at the bottom first!

Here’s two of my newset model trains in my locomotive collection. I bought them a long time ago, but I’ve been moving and traveling around the last 14 months, so they had been stored at the dealers shop. They became forgotten, untill I got myself installed at my new place, and I finally got them delivered. Two great Norwegian loco from model train manufacturer Hobbytrade. Several hobby stores have had a promotion offer campaign on selected models from this manufacturer, including GLM, Togbutikken, and Electrade. So take advantage of this offer while it lasts.

The model trains are digital with light and sound decoder. Great done, with fine details, like their original models. The trains can be found along the Norwegian railway, the Cargolink often in front of a car transport train, and Peterson* (Swedish) freight and woodchips transport in Østfold. Cargo Link MaK The 2700 is the same locomotive named Di.6 NSB. Peterson TMZ was originally a DBS-loco (Danish State Railways), but after a few years of operation sold to several Scandinavian rail companies. Anyway, two gorgeous models for a norwegian model railway!!
