Hey guys,

I have a Weinert 7226 kit gathering dust because all the instructions are in German and I've assembled maybe a third of it but then it gets too complex for me to figure out with googles inaccurate translations.

I had a friend who was going to translate but after 12 months it still hasn't happened - so just wondering if there are any friendly Marklin users fluent in German that could translate a page of instructions for me when they have some free time?

I can e-mail the scanned page at your leisure.

Thanks.

In case you didn't do it yet, I suggest you try other translator like DeepL. In general I prefer its translations.
Mostly Märklin H0.

The trouble with most translating software is that technical language can easily lose its meaning in the translation. It's much better if somebody fluent in both languages and the hobby makes a translation.

Oh yes very true. We just dicussed here the word "crane hoist" I never had heard the word before.

https://www.marklin-user...n-on-railway-crane-hoist

A major point is, even in the standard dictionaries you do not find these words.

Anyway, I found your "1:87 Track barrier for C100 track, illuminated, functional - Weinert 7226" at Weinert's website. Very strange, there is a second one with the article #72261. This 72261 costs almost twice as much as the 7226. I do not see any differences except the price. Do you know other differences? Which one do you have?

I did not find a manual about this track barrier on Weinert's website too. But finally I found one at MSL. This manual referrs to these 3 track barriers. I guess the difference is the mechanical versus the electrical propulsion.

Here the heading of the manual:
" Attention - It is essential to read the instructions completely before starting construction
Construction manual for the track barriers with the drive with servo motor
Order no. 72321Gode 75
Order no. 72311Code 83
Order No. 72261 Code 100"

This PDF file contains 6 pages. Which one do you want to be translated?
CS 3 is a controlling station from Märklin - not a central station.

It was PDF wasn't sure if it could be uploaded here and could have tried when I got home and had access but I have already been contacted by e-mail.

In any case John (River6109) already contacted me and offered to translate and I have sent it to him.

Thanks TEEWolf for your offer to help.
