Friday Night Steam

Something a little bit different for tonight!



Pre - War Märklin locomotive - Abandoned model train - Restoration

This is a R-910 abandoned model train produced by Märklin between 1938 and 1955. I bought it at a flea market. Each part was pretty much seized. The engine was totally blocked and I thought I couldn't bring it back to life... I spent one entire day trying to fix it. The front and rear counterweights were originally riveted then I had to make threads to fix them again. I found some pictures of old labels on the internet. Please watch till the end to see this Pre-war rusty locomotive in action !
