1936: Märklin 2677, a smaller two-person version. The two-seat version has a pair of figures sitting opposite each other over a bench-style table, and unlike the four-seat version 2678, there are no green splashes at the corners of the base to suggest vegetation – the two-seat version was "dual use", and could be fitted inside some of the shorter Märklin coaches to provide interior detail.
