Could this expansion also be used with TTR Märklin?
Could you even play Märklin deck+map as (well obviously still slightly less balanced) Deutschland if you combined this deck into it?

I'd also like to know this. I'm guessing we might need another train deck to compensate for the slightly odd distribution of cards in Märklin.

I'm thinking of normal train deck (from US,Europe or Nordic Countries), Märklin tickets+this deck. Use sleeves to make the ticket backs look same if playing seriously. No passengers. I imagine it would be pretty close to Deutschland. Maybe. Not sure if I'm sure enough to blind-buy...

Märklin map is technically identical to the one in Zug um Zug Deutschland. I've got both and I can confirm this.
So if you've got tickets from the 1902 (we still don't know the details) and get a typical set of train cards (from USA, Europe, 1910 or Nordic Countries) you can play with Märklin map as ZuZ:D with the 1902 expansion (assuming you replace original tickets with the ones from expansion).
Tickets in Märklin and ZuZ:D are a bit different - 4 are worth less points and there are 10 more short tickets and 6 more long tickets.
And by the way - the bonus for completing the most tickets is 15 points in ZuZ:D instead of 10 in Märklin.

But the Marklin train deck is AWESOME, why would you want to remove that?

Because the whole point of this expansion is a new ticket deck.

To have alternative way to play Germany map, without passengers and without buying TTR Deutschland, which feels lkke ripoff to me, since it's literally Märklin map but just different tickets and no passengers.

I got the Marklin edition

and a Ticket to Ride base game with 1910 expansion.

My plan is to use

The Marklin map for play the Deutschland version
I knew that the maps are not exactly the same (few minor changes between few route colors)

The train cards from the 1910 expansion.

Trains from the original TTR

Instead of 60 wooden passengers (meeples) from the 1902 expansion I shell use color cubes (10 cubes X 6 colors: black, green, blue, red, yellow, white)
I hope to find a way to add this idea (of the 60 passengers that are on the board at the begin of the game) to other map too

I shell scan the tickets cards from the Marklin edition and reprint them after I shell add a different back from the Deutschland version
change the ticket with the different value (4 tickets)
and using graphic editor to add the missing tickets (16 for the Deutschland edition and 29 tickets from the 1902 expansion)

I really doubt that, because during a quick glance, I cannot see any differences when it comes to other thing than pure aesthetics. I actually think they are 100% identical!

I ended up ordering.. I haven't had time to do full comparison yet (so that new tickets don't overlap with Märklin ones), but the maps are same so there should be no problems. Passenger mechanic is better than Märklin one, and you can use long routes without even sleeving since they're dealt separately anyway. This makes Zug um Zug: Deutschland completely redundant in my opinion, even though it does have prettier board than Märklin.

Now you have Marklin edition and Deutschland 1920? You sleeved cards and made it look exactly like Deutschland version? If you did, can you please tell us the difference, which is better for you and why?
