Sorry Kristof, I don't. These are not precision motors. They are the type used in many other types of toys and even in devices such as shavers.

My guess is that they are made in the far east, but I could be wrong.

Thanks, Did you see '37773' sticker on 37770 box?



Hello Steven, yes it has a 37773 sticker on the box.
I guess I should post it in Me & My Trains perhaps ? Wink

Hi all,

My latest Loco.

Don't know much about it, apart from it's number 146 from a 555 production run....a nice touch is that the number is on the Loco.

Fabrice,

In the last photograph may I ask the angle of the slope you are using?

It looks like it exceeds the Marklin recommended angle, and if I am correct do you have any general running problems, such as loss of traction?

Many thanks

Hi Glenn,

It's kind of you to worry about my layout, but it's only because I didn't hold the camera horizontally!Blushing

The slope of the ramp is below 4% (3.88% exactly) so it should be in the norms. No loss of traction noticed until now.

Cheers
Fabrice

Hi all!

Here are the pictures of the 2 latest locos.
39412: Very heavy loco with SDS and all sounds including the "Zurück bleiben bitte". Very good running charecteristics. Pulls my 4390 set without any hesitations. I just had to buy it since I still miss a correct model to pull the 4390 which I bought 14 years ago at Turberg in Berlin.
36825: Very detailed and impressive model. The traction power is terrible. It couldn´t even pull one of the S-bahn cars without showing bad traction. But the cars have pickup-shoes and are therefore heavy to pull.
