Until now I have found three Marklin silent pickup shoes
Code E138079 that replaces E206370 which I think is the most common.
Code E100032 which replaces 7164
and E144133 which I don't know which replaces.

Does anybody know any more silent pickup shoes, or which is replaced by the E144133?

Thank you

I do not know of any others, but I believe the E144133 can be used as a replacement for the E225647.

They fit the new style P8 and the BR 94, maybe more?

A silent pickup from Roco is one that is silent.
A "silent" pickup from Märklin is one that is less noisy than the regular pickups.
Straight regular pickups are much more quiet than distorted regular pickups, so noise level varies a lot.

The silent types have a slider made of thin metal in the shape of a bow.

See Moritz' picture in post #3: the silent slider is mounted to the loco, the regular slider lies next to it for comparison.

How much of a difference does it really make? I'd love to see a video with comparions between silent and standard pickup shoes. I googled a little but found none so I'd appreciate a link if someone knows of such a video.

I would say, it can make a difference like night and day! It depends on the condition of the original pickup shoe, but I think, it is really woth! Especially, the Märklin silent pickup shoe is very cheap between 2€ and 3€, the pendant from Roco is between 8 and 12€ but the Roco isn't better.

I will check, maybe, I can make a comparison video in the next days.
