That 3064, is that a v60 or the later 260 version? I still prefer the 3065, i love telex :-)

Kristof


Kristof,

3064 and 3065 are the same livery/class/version. I am note 100% sure, but I think they even have the same road number. That aside, the only real difference between the two is 3065 has telex, 3064 does not. 3141 is the Cl. 260 version in cream and green.

Hey Brandon,

That s true, but there are in both classes 2 versions, the v60 and the v260 (which is more recent). That s why I asked :-)

Hi Ian,

I don't mind the extra photos and that is also why I chose to repeat them. It's really a great looking set!!!

Had it not been that it is from an era that falls outside of what I collect, then I would have been really tempted to try get a set myself, it really looks very tempting.

Hi Per,

Thanks. ThumpUp

I bought the Set as in new condition, with the couplings still sealed in there plastic bags.

So, as yet I've not ran her, maybe on the new layout. Smile

I will need to take some photos of the Set in the display case, like you say, it all looks very nice.

I'm showing my modest collection of BV1's on BW Part III and that's how the photo's were taken.

Hi Panayotis,

Yes, it's a great size for a small layout like mine. Some of my other steamers look a bit out of place in my station or goods yard.

I'm also looking forward to the Br56 which Marklin are bringing out next year.

The Italian one is nice too. I think this is the loco that's been done in the most different nationalities! Maybe someone can confirm or dispute this?

Ian and Jonas:

Nice locomotives. I love the tank locomotives and I really like the diesel switchers, are they both Swedish?

Chris

P.S. This week I bought two engines on eBay, one a few days ago, Marklin 3072 (BR 212) which should arrive today and Marklin 3021 (V200). I was able to get both at very reasonable prices so I am really excited. I have been looking on eBay for sometime for both of these, so I am very happy. BigGrin

The plan is to add Loksound chips to both. Will share pictures and video when I get them.

So my BR 212 arrived today via the USPS. Then engine looks perfect and it runs great. I don't think it was run much as the slider is clean and the when I took it apart it still looked as if everything was new. So here are a few pictures. I now have to order a decoder, as I mentioned before I had planned on going with a LokSound V4 but the motor takes up alot of room, so I am not sure about speaker placement. I might be able to place the speaker next to the decoder, I think I will have to do some measuring.

Thanks everyone, I am amazed it really does look like new and it runs really well well. Kristof, that is what I am thinking either on the top of the decoder or side by side with it in that general area. I will need to make a few measurements to get the right speaker size.

Hey Chris,

I have the same one, an analog version, and you are right, they run really well. It s almost a pity that you will change motors, or will you just use a magnet? Anyhow, I m very curious about the work you are going to deliver!

That's a very nice Br212, Chris! ThumpUp

My own is one of my early conversions, and has a delta decoder. I really need to upgrade it to something newer, as the running at slow speeds is not great!

Good luck with your conversion!

When I do my conversions so far I have always left the three pole motor in the engines and simply added the permanent magnet and ESU Lokpilot or LokSound and in all cases I have been very pleased. This time I plan on replacing the magnet, I will isolate the lights and convert to LEDs, add the ESU Loksound v4 chip and add a speaker. I am hoping to order the chip tomorrow from my dealer and should have them here by next weekend. If all goes well I will have the conversion done by next weekend or so. I will take pictures and post videos.

Ok, I did it again. I just bought another V200 on eBay. ThumpUp That makes two in two days. Woot So I should get both in a few days. I am not sure on the age of the second V200 that I just bought, but the Engine # is V200060. As soon as I get either of them I will post pictures.

I missed out on one of these when they were released in 2008, but when ebay dealer fettsau1 sent me a newsletter saying he had a few of these sets, I couldn't resist. I was lucky enough to get the last one.

This completes my Long Henry collection, as I already have the matching oil fired Br44 for this set, plus 1 Marklin 12 ore car set, 1 Trix 12 ore car set, 1 Marklin 5 car set and 7 non LH ore cars that I put loads in and weathered to match these ore cars. That makes a total of 46 ore cars. I also have both Trix Long Henry Br44's.

Thanks for the kind comments, all.

Ray, I didn't mention about the other 2 Br44's I also have - 37889 'Big Ears' and the Br44 that came with the pipe train set a few years ago.

A friend in our Marklin club also has the LH set, with extra ore cars - I think he has 44 or 48 cars. If we put them together, I guess we could have close to a 100 car train!

I'd probably double head the train to pull 46 cars, but I could also run 2 trains of 23 cars each.

Hi Dave,
Very nice, congratulations ThumpUp ThumpUp join the club. I got this one in 2007, with my new items order that year from LS along with two 46255 sets and thought that was enough. I did intend to order the 37883 but '07 was a big year allready with other items. Later when Marklin bought out 00775 set of 12 more Ore Wagens I ordered those. I missed the Oil fired '44 till I scored one on ebay in 2010, after and also finding another 00775 Set, at a very good price from RJF trains when he was advertising a Walters clearance. That left me with six more Wagens to get to make the 50. Got them last year from fettsau from a 00775 set and I believe he has more. Long Henry becomes a bit of an obsession Scared
One day at a train show some where we'll run the lot (on our AMC modules) !! but probably in two Trains to be prototypical, altho maybe a 100, just to show US & NZR modllers what the DB and Marklin is made of .Wink
Setting up such a train and putting it away would use a big chunk of your day, so I intend to get "Train Safe Travel" tubes for mine. One 270mm and two 240's RollEyes

Lots of very nice Loks everyone, gee you've all been very busy, buying and collecting. ThumpUp Smile
I hope you'll all agree tho, that Ian's 2680 King Ludwig Train is rather nice and a rare find in Digital. Unsure They don't come up too often. ThumpUp
Not that I haven't been poking around ebay myself OhMyGod and there's another "box" on the way from LS. Will post some when I get a chance.RollEyes

Yes he does, that's where I got my 00775 from. I got my 37883 off the forum from Sal (Krokodileman), and the Trix ore car set and 2 Trix Br44's came from johnvandamme. I just recently installed mSD decoders in both Trix Br44's.

Are you converting them to 3 Rail David ?

My 37883 actually came from MiWuLa, they have a big clearout on ebay once or twice a year, and often the prices are quite favoiurable. I also got my 39800 V200 from them. in the same shipment as well as a kit or two & some wiking cars IIRC, it was nearly two years ago.
I probably don't look at the items for sale on the forum often enough Blushing

V200 Arrived in the mail yesterday. See the picture below. Based on a weblink that another member sent to me I think this engine is from the 1980's maybe. In any event another great eBay find, practically no wear visible on the slider and the engine itself is in great condition and it ran great yesterday. I am now waiting for a shipmint of ESU decoders to convert and my other purchases to Digital. I am also still awaiting another V200 in the mail.

Thanks everyone. I can't wait for the second one to arrive, it is only coming from a couple states over but I don't think it has been shipped yet. From the pictures I think the second one might be in need of some minor work, but I am looking forward to giving it a second life.

Hi friends

I see that you all have been very busy buying rolling stock while I have been relaxing in our summer house.

I have only bougt one thing, when I passed by my MMR dealer some days ago.

This was made in 1986.
Looking at the pick-up shoe and the wheels, this has hardly been run. The two front axles are locked.
I will convert it with the 5* motor 60941 and mLD decoder 60962.

Looking at the pick-up shoe and the wheels, this has hardly been run. The two front axles are locked.
I will convert it with the 5* motor 60941 and mLD decoder 60962.


Looks really good, Svein! ThumpUp

Two newcomers added to my collection.
A BR 50 2362 Märklin # 29820 (b) coming from Startset Digital Premium and a BR 98 314 Märklin # 36862. Both run smoothly with MS2, made me BigGrin and wanted to share.

" Every Marklin layout needs a V200, a Railbus and a Banana car", not to mention a few Black and red Steamers, oh and the odd Elok !

CS1 Reloaded, Touch Cab, C Track Modules, K track layout all under construction. Currently Insider
