Hey there!
I just joined the forum, after owning various HO and 1 Gauge Marklin trains for about 10 years. About 8 years ago, I bought an old-stock (brand new) Maxi steam locomotive; one of the standard green, red and black 'Max' locomotives. It's run perfectly since it arrived from Germany. However, recently its smoke generator burned out, and I need a new part. Does Marklin currently make anything that would fit (that I could just order from Marklin)? Or would I have to seek out an old/used part or scavenge another locomotive? Please offer any advice.

Thanks in advance!
Erik

As far as I'm aware the Marklin smoke generators are made by Seuthe.

Seuthe 6 and 7 are for 1 Gauge, and I got a #7 to replace the smoke generator in my Gauge 1 BR78 after someone ran it at an exhibition with the smoke unit on and no fluid in it - it was charcoal when I took the old unit out! It had generated enough heat to warp the smokestack let alone burn the smoke unit out.

Something similar happened to my Maxi; someone was messing with it at Christmas and was running it with the generator turned on with no fluid in the stack. Anyways, which voltage would you recommend? I know you said that you got the higher-voltage one, but would the lower-voltage one last longer or be easier on the locomotive? Is there a disadvantage to the lower-voltage one? Any idea on what voltage the original might be in a maxi locomotive? Thanks again so much for your help!

Cool

The lower-voltage will burn out and selfdestroy rather fast BigGrin

Per.

Cool
