    That looks really good! I’ll bet with the weight it’s a great runner too!

    Gerd,
    Did you make the decals yourself? Nice paint job.

    Joe,
    The brass weight will be helpful.

    Pulls quite well, but slow speed control is not great and top speed like a Shinkansen.
    Yes, always do my own decals

    Or the docks and wharves of a large East Coast city. I can see it resting on a car float on a switching layout. It looks fantastic. Great job. Jim

    Bruce,
    Why yes they do!
    This is one my dad gave awhile back. I picked up several more last time I was visiting.

    So for the chassis, I got one of the new ones with the can motor from Marklin set 81701. (The new photo grey 0-6-0 Marklin-88001 with the new valve gear has a horizontal can motor and won’t fit under the shell, but the trainset versions will) The new can motor versions are much quieter than the 5 pole open frame motor version. They also have a new capacitor. The new trainset version fits just fine under The Z Makers shell.

    So mine runs well and quiet.

    Thanks for sharing that! I am impressed. Seriously looks like marklin upped their game with that new motor. You can see the smoothness right off the bat.
