Hi Marklin friends,

Wanted to share today some photos of a few new sets that I recently purchased, all from the WWII era which here in the US are quite common. They were shipped by US soldiers in Germany usually during the years 1945 and 1946. I bought one set with RS 800 and SK 800 locos and a 418 station. Both locos ran without hardly any servicing required, just a little oil on the gears.

And a wonderful set still in the shipping crate! here:

Will upload some videos of the trains running soon...

enjoy !

Paul

PS. I wrote a quick article on my blog about these sets here: http://marklinstop.com/2015/11/from-germany-with-love-train-sets-shipped-home-during-wwii/

As usual very nice condition. The other PX set is probably the best I have seen. I am assuming they will end up in your personal collection.
