Piko's weathered livestock set:

My first Piko purchase.



I don't have many livestock cars.
For the price, I found the quality was pretty good and a three-pack made it an easy decision.

Still, it will add variety to the fleet of Marklin pike cars that I've gathered, which was the intent.

Era 1&2? Not much Marklin in 2012.
I had to resort to hunting down some discontinued (and still in stock) items:

I reattached the image. Not a great picture though.
I didn't realise how few Marklin items I have got this year.
I do have three sets on the way, all older items.


The gold trim looks like 'gold painted plastic' - If it was supposed to look like brass, it doesn't.

The roof vent details aren't very good. One has actually come off somewhere.
The Marklin pike cars have a fine trail of soot down the middle and this makes a real difference.

I'm still happy with it and plan to use it but 'disappointing' still, given my initial perception of Roco's quality.

From Trix and from a few years back now, but arriving in the same delivery as the Fleischmann pack

Greetings Jeremy,

The USA set is very nice,there is another similar set too,both sets were issued by MHI in 1992 to go with the blue A-B-A Santa Fe F7 combination.
i used to have both sets,and sold them,some boxcars out of these sets are being sold as single items nowadays,that is how i got the Rio Grande boxcar.
The Pacific Fruit Express reefer is also a good find,the funny thing about this car is that it is not all metal like the others,the sidewalls are plastic,the roof is metalsheet.
Good find!

Paul.

The Trix Orient Express expansion pack.


I got this during the ETS handover sale for abut $120. Here in Australia, the Marklin version is still available for $300
I picked up a "new" Marklin 42754 from Ebay last christmas and this set was supposed to match it.

I didn't realise how much the colour differed between the 2008 issues and the previous version.
Oh well, both sets were well discounted and are still great models and along with the S2/6 in grey, will form my interpretation of a CIWL express.

Thanks, there's another 10 cars on the way from Mr Fettsau.
Marklin's limited selection this year made choosing Brawa easier, despite the extra cost.

Luckily they didn't put out too much either... so I'm still within this year's budget.
Unlike last year...

Hi John,

in hindsight, the 'disappointment' probably comes from having way too much Brawa and Trix, which sets the bar pretty high.

It came out of the box feeling a bit cheaper:
The gold trim looks like 'gold painted plastic' - If it was supposed to look like brass, it doesn't.
The roof vent details aren't very good. One has actually come off somewhere.

But its still something I'll use, largely because of its novelty.

I don't recall seeing a Pike Speisewagon anywhere and definitely not one in red.

The only thing I've seen that is close is a green Brawa car with a 'half kitchen' at one end.
It wasn't a Pike and was also twice the price of the Roco.

Hi, all!
Some additions to my humble beer car collection.

Märklin set 48774 has arrived with three beer cars.

My favourite beer is Jever - and I also like the dark green design:
Jever beer car

The second car is from Flensburger:
Flensburger Pils

The third one in yellow for Holsten Bier:
Holsten Bier

The fourth car is from Piko (54895) and it has many small holes because I did not yet install the small plastic parts from the goodies bag:
Püls-Bräu
Regards
Tom

I spent months emailing various retailers around the world who still had this set listed as 'in stock'.
No-one had it. Very frustrating.



Once this second hand set showed up at Maddog, I ordered it.
Haven't seen another one since. If it has any wear, I can't tell. At half the original retail price, who cares?

The mix of different car bodies along with the coal-load and weathering really make it a nice set.

This car has no rear coupler. I think I will install a decoder to turn the light on and off.

Nice Wagon Svein! I was looking at one of those in a shop on Friday and nearly bought it, but decided on some other wagons instead. As I will show in my next posts.

Just a couple of little items to share today;


Marklin Shell Tank Car

UserPostedImage

UserPostedImage


Marklin Cargo Selbstentladewagon (48100)

UserPostedImage

UserPostedImage


and finally, I managed to buy three additional Eva Tank cars for the Marklin Eva Tank set 2855;


UserPostedImage

UserPostedImage


Here is the original set, which I purchased from great Forum contributor Krokodileman, the diesel loco has been converted to digital by Sal before sale at my request;


UserPostedImage


The really interesting thing about this set is the history that is known, as you can see from the above photo it comes with the original America Warranty card, better picture here;


UserPostedImage


which as well as containing orientation instructions shows, that this set, was made in Germany, shipped to America, sold to someone, Sal then purchased it from someone (maybe the original purchaser ??!!??), it was then digitised and sold to me, and shipped to the UK. It is interesting to know the interesting and complex history that some items have, and how they come to be in someone's possession.

Enough I have hi-jacked this thread too long..........................back to 2012 purchases.................

Ray,

I am not sure. I have searched for the tank cars as a separate item as I was under the same impression as you, but so far found nothing. The seller sold them as an add-on to the set, but sadly they came unboxed and so it is hard to fathom without the boxes. It is always preferable to be able to buy boxed items, but unfortunately with ebay you have to take whatever comes along.

Hello All:

A couple of weeks ago I purchased a new Locomotive (the insider BR 03.10 from Marklin). The coaches needed for Express train D265 Basel SBB - via Wuppertal - Hagen were Marklin's 43969 express coach set. The coaches in this set, although nice, are not the proper length. Fleischmann offers similar coach types, however they are no longer being produced and my dealer can only bring the Luggage coach in at this time. He did, however, have these little gems from Roco. They are now residing in my Coach yard.

UserPostedImage

UserPostedImage

UserPostedImage

I gotta say, I'm a "dyed in the wool" Marklin fan, but these coaches has made me a convert. Longer lengths are the way to go from now onThumpUp

My dealer does have another 2nd class and a Roco rendition of the baggage coach, but the dining coach of proper length might be a problem.

IMHO the Roco coaches have much better detailing (especially the interior details, but also on the outside). It's not the length that makes the big difference.
My 303 mm Trix coaches (coming from Märklin dang soon now) have the same simplified interior as the Märklin 282 mm coaches.

You don't notice length or details on a running train so I will keep my shortened M* coaches.

Tom

Happy customer of Roco, Piko, Fleischmann, ESU, Brawa, Liliput, Rivarossi, Lima, ... - and will happily continue to buy locos that run well out of the box. I'm also happy with 95% of my Märklin items, but will avoid a few cost-optimized items made 2011 or later.

Hi Tom:

You do make some very, very good points sirBigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

However... I will agree to disagree about not noticing the longer lengths when the coaches are running. Details, yes, but lengths no. Even at speed, the longer coaches are apparent.

Oh, I'm not going to stop buying the Marklin product, but from now on, I'm going to be a little more discerningSmile

Shorter than scale coaches are not a deficiency, but a deliberate compromise for the majority of modellers who don't have the space for longer stations and broader radius curves.

For me, the shorter coaches are essential.
