There is a new listing today of a large number of Märklin items at Hattons of Wdnes.
I am not sure that they are bargain prices, but much of it is collectable and produced in the last 20 years.

Search for Marklin or at this link Marklin at Hattons
This includes all Z gauge items as well.

Or just go straight to their pre-owned items list for today or at this link Pre-owned at Hattons today
All HO Märklin items in the pre-owned sort function are listed with a grey background (as for all HO) - Z gauge items are listed with a pale green background.

HO Scale - Märklin (ep III and VI, C Track, digital) - 2 rail (USA and Australia) - 3 rail (English Hornby Dublo) - a few old O gauge.

Thanks I have had a quick look. You are right there are some very collectible items.

I think the prices are not bad considering what is there. I did grab the rolling road set but that will be it.

There is a very large additional range of Märklin items added to the second-hand listing overnight.

There are about 30 K83 decoders and a number of current-conductiong coupler sets 72021/72020.
Listed are a large range of locomotive and car-sets.
These include SNCB, SNCF, SBB and DB mostly released in the last 10 years.

I've just been to Hatton's and bought a couple of things from this collection. It's only a half-hour drive for me, and I was very impressed with Hatton's new premises. It's on an industrial estate, and is warehouse-sized.

Main purchase was the 39730 LINT railcar with video screens for the doors. I was not aware of anyone who has one of these with all the video screens working. Mine certainly don't! But this one from Hatton's DOES completely work, as it's never been used apart from (I suppose) for initial testing. So now it has to be kept in a box and not used, or else I'm sure the screens will fail! Viewing for special guests only!!!

I too thought that we knew all the major Märklin collectors in the UK, but I don't know the owner of this collection. Naturally, Hatton's wouldn't tell me who it was, but all the stuff recently listed on their web site is from the same owner. I can tell you, though, that he was a bit of a scribbler! Digital addresses hand-written on the instruction booklets, and labels stuck to the outside of boxes, etc. I will try and clean these off as best I can. I prefer all my things to be pristine!

Anyway, the quality and condition of the trains seem to be excellent, in case anyone else here is thinking of buying anything.

A huge amount of K track and accessories added.
Along with more locos and cars and sets.
Quite a bit of Roco and Fleischmann.

Hi Nigel,
Congratulations on your purchases.

They were doing mail order only.
I believe they opened to shoppers a week or two ago.
Great timing.

Well, now there's 3 items less.....

I'd been wanting some extra cars for my ICE2 train for some time. There were two 43705 sets in this collection, now just one left Wink.

Hattons also remove VAT for us out of UK folks - that surprised me as you don't normally encounter VAT on used items.

Thanks for letting me know about that. Looks like it was put under the incorrect category when it was added - I've had that fixed now!

Hi Alan,
In the past I have found that Hattons list usful items such as decoders and accessories that can be used for HO and Z under the Z section.
So it pays to look.

I am amazed at the work in listing and photographing all those items.
And they are quite accurate in their descriptions and assessments.

As well as the normal online shopping cart, Hattons offer what they call the Trunk.
So if you wish to bundle items over a period (up to 3 months) you can.
It is very good for shipping overeseas, because it amortizes the cost compared to shipping individual items.

You first add items to the normal shopping cart, and one of the options is add those items to a Trunk.
At this point you do pay using your credit card, and the items stay in your Trunk until you are ready to ship.
If you subsequently find that an item(s) in your trunk are no longer wanted, just remove them and your credit card will be refunded.

I have used this sytem very successfully, because I purchase British models as well.

regards

I have to pay VAT on used items when I import to Norway. So the fact that they remove the VAT makes the deal quite a bit better compared to ebay.

So based on your tip one wagon sets coming to norway, from Hatton. but I still have to pay Norwegian VAT (25%) and handling fee.

My parcel from Hattons is with the courier for delivery today, given it arrived in Auckland last Thursday after being posted last Monday (8 days ago).

So, how come DHL can deliver a parcel that goes from Liverpool - Leipzig in Germany - Singapore - Sydney - Auckland NZ - Wellington in 8 days whereas it takes DHL between 3 weeks and 3 months to deliver from within Germany to Frankfurt to Singapore to Auckland to Wellington, and that is paying Premium postage - 80 € for the German parcel and 33 £ for the UK parcel?

The UK parcel was sent via DHL Express, the German ones as a normal DHL shipment.

It must be corrupt, Deutschland über alles, (Germany over everyone), a small comparisment: a letter from Australia to Germany under 50g costs A$ 3.50, a letter over 50g and under 125g costs A$ 8.30,, so if you send 2 letters under 50g you only pay A$ 7.00

Perhaps the flooding in Deutschland is a reason why as well! I received an email from Walthers saying that supplier shipping costs have increased and delivery times are longer.

My parcel from Hattons arrived very quickly. It was the 6 wagon Rollendstrasse set. Beautiful condition but all the couplings and buffer beams are missing. I am hoping that perhaps they have been put into the boxes with the other separate wagons they have for sale. A discussion with Hattons is under way. ☹️

On the other hand I bought a loco from Joes in Germany yesterday. I paid around 12.00 hrs London on the 23rd. It was delivered at my door at 13.16 today. Unbelievable, sent by DHL Express for €19, which is less than the postage quoted in his ebay listings. 😁
