A while back someone posted a link to some very useful pages that would help someone like me get his catenary erection going. I have lost the link and my attempts at search have brought out 100s pages.

This is for older Marklin stuff on M track. I have some period catalogues that will help but I know that there is something better out there.

Many thanks in advance.

Might have been me that did that, I know I've posted these before.

Marklin Catenary System.pdf (1,024kb) downloaded 561 time(s).

Marklin Catenary System for 5100_5200 Series Track.pdf (3,611kb) downloaded 481 time(s).

I've made this topic 'Sticky' so that it can be found relatively easier.

Try it here

(he is writing almost sold out.)

of course they are all used.

I typed the German words "märklin fahrdraht isolierung" or "maerklin oberleitung isolierung" into Google and got all these results.

Hi all,
I would like some help in identifying a Maerklin catenary mast assembly which I purchased 10 years ago.
I would like to purchase a few more, it is from the later 70000 series of Maerklin catenary.
Of course I discarded the rather large box in which it came.
I have checked the PDF download for the 70000 series, and it is one item not mentioned in the list of items in the last few pages.
PDF manual of 70000 series catenary - 88 pages instructions

The mast and section was designed to span two tracks, and you can see it in this photo behind the tree in upper right (sorry mistakenly said left previously).
2 span mast assembly for catenary.

So it has the two hangers assembled ready to take the catenary.
The inner hanger is attached to the mast, and the outer hanger is at the end of a cast horizontal/vertical inverted L section. It is very well designed and made.

Thanks in advance
Kimball

Ah ah found it using google " maerklin cross span".

It is the #74106. The extended outrigger can be adjusted further or closer to the first track.

74106 cross span mast for 2 track catenary

And here is a photo of the real thing I took in December 2018.
It is at Eberbach on the Neckar River, south Odenwald BW.
This one has dual arms at 180 degrees.
And dual outriggers at the end of the arm.

I took the picture of the train, but just happened to include this great structure.
