   4) What is the difference between an analog and a digital model?

The analog locomotives are the first to be born on Marklin and operate in alternating current by receiving the voltage from 3 rail: they have a relay inversion pulse, which determines the direction of travel of the vehicle. The engine on these models is very sturdy and the operation is much simple.

The locomotives digital are equipped with a digital decoder (DELTA SINUS MFX) through which the locomotive (or coaches with digital features) communicates with the control unit (f.e.: CENTRAL STATION) from which it receives the necessary impulses for operation and control of various functions (start, lights, sounds, etc..); very important thing is the ability to run from the same track many trains (up to 50), as they are recognized by the address assigned automatically or manually.

    5) What is the difference between a model and Marklin another      oooovendor?

The most marked difference is without doubt that the operation of the locomotives is in AC, and their the stability, robustness, and features. See also the Marklin History.
Many manufacturers have made efforts to create working models also in alternating current: see Rivarossi, Roco etc..
Some Marklin models are designed for

   6) Can I use my analog locomotive on a digital circuit?

The type of operation is different, so you cannot , without adapter, use analog locomotive on an digital circuit or vice versa.

For the tracks the speech is different in that a binary circuit C can be used with a transformer connected to the analog binary gripping current conveniently provided with an adapter.

7) I'd like to approach to the Marklin railroad model, what should i do? 

The possibilities are multiple, starting from a simple binary locomotive and some early arriving to plastic digital extremely complex. The first consideration is choosing the type of operation:

Analog ---> vintage
Digital ---> Current

The substantial difference between the two, apart from the operation, is the availability of the products: for the digital can be easily found in stores, while for the analog are substantially objects of the used market.
For beginners it is always advised to buy a start-set, since it is composed of all the accessories required for the realization of a small circuit.
