my recently bought Märklin MaK 1206 (37635) came with the standard pickup shoe, which is not very silent. Therefore, I wanted to replace it with a Märklin silence pickup shoe. But first, a picture of the MaK 1206:


In my exchange parts box I have two types of silence pickup shoes:

Märklin E144133 (Link) 1,95€
Märklin E138079 (Link) 2,90€

But the pikup shoe 209217 is very special, both replace versions doesn't fit to the MaK 1206.

But I realized, that it is very easy to use the metal part of the E144133 and replace it on the original 209217. You just have to remove the old metal part and put that from the E144133.

In the following pictures, You see the already converted 209217 and the converted E144133 with the old parts from the 209217.



Now, the MaK 1206 is really very silent, especially because of it's very nice motor.

The Märklin silence pickup shoe is very cheap. Before, I used Roco silence pickup shoes, but they are much more expensive and a bit more wider. Therefore, they don't fit beneath all locos.

This conversion should also be usefull for the following MaK locos:
- 33641
- 33642
- 33644
- 33645
- 33646
- 37626
- 37627
- 37630
- 37631
- 37636
- 37641
- 37642
- 37643
- 37644
- 37645
- 37646
- 37647
- 37656
- 37657
- 37658
- 37659
- 37693
- 37694
- 37697
