Bringing up a theme regarding tenders metal or plastic from Märklin.Well known firms that are dealing and
repairing Märklin stuff sometimes refearing metal tenders as plastic.Always is this concerning the tenders from RM800 visa
FM 800 and the tender 809 that are used on the G800 and some F800.
I think there is some misanderstandings here.I have never come across tenders from FM800 that is metal and
the other way around RM 800 that is of plastic.Have anyone of you come acoss one?
I,ve told that these tenders are made of a mixture of Aluminium and Magnesium,they certently
don;t react to a magnet so people then think its plastic.
It maybee contains a overweight of Magnesium because exposed to air,it will produce a white powder.
This is allways where the paint is off.This has nothing too do with zinkpest as often said.

Regards kaav800

The tender on the left looks like an RM800 tender, and they are all metal.

Hi kaav800 (it can't be for first nameBigGrin )
Märklin made all its tenders metal until 1952 or 1953
So definitely G800 (BR 44) and RM800 (BR 24) have metal tenders and also early F800 (BR 01).
Later models of the G800 and F800 had exact same tenders made of plastic while the RM800 was replaced with the FM800 (loco and tender bodies made of plastic Later to become the 3003).
Interestingly around that time the DA800 went the opposite way in 1955 with a plastic loco body while later (from 1956 onwards) it was made of Zamak (tender remained always made of "Thermoplastik").
Cheers
Jean

Yes, I can confirm that RM800 early versions had metal tenders and latest version had plastic tender. FM800 had always plastic ”FM 809” tender. F800 latest version had ”normal looking” plastic tender. It was also made with a rivet plastic tender but only for one year. Earlier versions had rivet metal tenders.

Hello folks !!


Thanks a lot for replays!
I did not know that there ever was made a plastic tender for the RM800 but there is allways something new to learn.
