Description: E8 locomotives - whether it comes in a Marklin box or an AZL box, these units were manufactured by AZL in China. z.scale.hobo has tested the coupling using a Marklin drawbar and it works. Once coupled with the drawbar, the locomotives cannot easily be dislodged from each other. We leave this to you to install and store.

All "leading" A units will come with the AZL/Marklin pilot and dummy coupler installed. The tail end of the set of locomotives can EITHER be equipped with a Marklin fishhook style coupler or a standard AZL knuckle-type coupler. This will be specified by the buyer at the time of the order.

Note: AZL's E8A locomotive is not equipped with cooling shields above the vents. The Marklin A unit has them. The Marklin B unit has them. This is not an add-on part, so we cannot provide them.

NOTE: As of Feb 12, 2021, the AZL units are all SOLD OUT and no longer available. We only have Marklin.

DCC with Marklin: The B units can easily take DCC cards. The Marklin A units have a separated light board for the front lights. This is not the same as the AZL units which have a complex light pipe that ports light from the circuit board down to the front of the locomotive shell. Please note that when buying the Marklin unit this will be an issue. You will need to port lighting down to the front via fiber optic tube which we can supply (contact us).

Road#'s Available:
