Finally I hooked a fish once again
« on: August 04, 2022, 09:09:38 am »
During the summer vacations it is extremely difficult to catch anything,
so I am happy that I got this original Märklin 4146/6. This is the smallest version - but just because very beautiful and delicate. I had to fix some things like missing handles, Vaporizer, phillips screws...
but finally I could make a first steam test - It works very well and nice.
Arnold :D

Have some pictures before repair:

  Great catch.  This one did not 'get away'.
You must have been casting your hook-n-bait in
the right 'fishing hole' to catch such a prize.

Kudos,
Wayne

Looks good and runs well. Are you going to add a cylinder cover?
