Hi all,
Please could the good folk here advise me on how I should go about purchasing
replacement tyres for numerous locomotives with different wheel sizes. I have
too many old locos in my"collection" without boxes and cannot access them
readily. However the few that I was able to, have loose or missing tyres. Two I have
identified are a 3050 and 3054. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Best
Jay
PS: Does Marklin sell an assortment of tyres?

I think there are at least 6 different sizes for H0 models. I'm afraid that will make it difficult to combine such an assortment.
Märklin dealers should be able to get the tyres for you in bags of 10.

Older catalogues have lists with frequently needed spare parts (pantographs, tyres, sliders).

You can find PDFs of catalogues here:

You can find a service manual here:

I agree Tom. I ordered a package of each from Marklin last year. I have an varied collection, and they fit my Fleischmann, Piko, Roco, and Marklin models.

From memory 7152, 7153, 7154 are, I think, all you need for old analogue locos.

3050 and 3054 are listed as needing 7153, what you need is the Marklin Service Manual or whatever it is called that has a good service parts list for older stuff. I can't find a link to it at the moment but someone will help.

There also is 7151.

A useful, but incomplete list on the Märklin site:

I use heat shrink tube, 2x shrinkage, stretched over the wheel. Don't actually heat shrink it as it then has a more varied wall thickness. I have found it pretty bullet proof other than one time with an excess of gear oil lubricant where I accidentally had a massive excess spill everywhere. I cut off the width with a 10A scalpel blade, being Z gauge getting the exact width is critical, down to 0.1mm tolerance. I am very happy with the result.

The 4 basic types gof tyres for Marklin are 7151, 7152, 7153 and 7154 as previously suggested. The most common tyre used is the 7153, fits all the diesels electrics etc. The other 3 types are rarely used. With the recent loco additions , Marklin have introduced about another 5 types. There tend to be for the very large drivers. For instance the Danish loco 39591 uses tyres E359876, which are just for this particular loco.

Some iconic Märklin locos like #3000, BR 216, DHG 500 use the 7154.
The bigger steamers like the pr. P 8 use the 7152.

Rarely used? Sounds opinion-based.

It is practical based that I quote the usage on. I repair Marklin every day and the number of packets of 7153 I use is far far more than the others even combined. Just putting in an order to Marklin for 10 packets of 7153 and not the 3 other types. 7151 never use it, 7154 is probably the next used, due to the 3000 (CM800) loco servicing, the most popular old Marklin loco ever made.

Few years ago, I bought 1 package of each 7151, 7152, 7153 and 7154 and for my needs until now there is always one that matches.
I had to replace one of those packages because it went empty, but I don't remember which one it was.
I didn't have to replace any tires in the most recent locomotives. When I buy an old one in ebay the probability of have to exchange tires is 50% or more.

Regards,
Miguel
Mostly Märklin H0.

Hi Jonathan, Micheal4, David and Tom
Thank you so much for Keeping this topic alive. I am still in the process of sourcing the tyres and the links provided
by Tom has proved to be a great resource for more than just the tyres. Using Micheal4's recommendation for the 3050 and 3054 I ordered the 7153 for now.
My nephew who is in Germany has already left for South Africa so unfortunately I'm too late to add to the list. Plan B. Jonathan your idea is just too brilliant.
Now because I cannot identify some of the locomotives that I have this is going to be a temporary fix (or is it permanently temporary :) )
David I do not have any of those exotics, just 70s and earlier(all analogue) that I'm going through.
Dear friends
Thank you all
Best
Jay

Wheel rubbers age and become hard over time (it's the same with car rubbers). Once the package with new rubbers is opened, they also start to age (though slower than on the model in use).
I then sprinkle them with talcum powder and seal the package well with scotch tape.
Another good way to preserve it is with glycerine, I drip a little glycerine into small closed containers, which keeps them elastic.
Excessive lubricating oil can reach the rubbers and then destroy them as well.

Glycerine is also great for cracked feet. In Australia Coles and Woolworths sell it.
