I was moving a few locos around when I noticed screw under my 3026 f800.The screw that holds the draw bar from tender to loco came undone.I hope I never have to fix one of them again . After spending a good hour trying to figure out how everything went together I unsoldered the 2 wires on the coupler.It might be an easy job for a lot of members but when your hands shake its not very easy.After several burns from the soldering iron its all back together TG Eddie

Haven't we all done that a time or two? BigGrin

I have almost all Märklin and mostly HO, although I do have a small number of Z gauge trains!
I have models from Era I to Era VI, but I try to focus on Eras I & III. Whoops, that one got away from me. Let's just say I focus on cool trains, regardless of the particulars :-)
So many trains and so little time.
