The Marklin Engine is an off-the-shelf gauge 1 model used to haul rolling stock in the background of the first season for the sake of creating the illusion of business. It is a German Federal Railways 80 class 0-6-0 tank engine first produced by the German model railway maker Märklin in 1971.

Several years later, as an Easter egg for the older fans of the series, Greg Tiernan included a scrap model of the Märklin engine in a scene at the Vicarstown Dieselworks in Blue Mountain Mystery.
