Disregard the Galesburg Railroad Days Train Show (s) listed for today. It doesn't happen until June.

Mr.JA - Wed 29 Apr - 07:53

Buyer beware! There is a seller on eBay, buybutlers, that is currently selling some Marklin items. The seller has no clue about Z-scale... no way to test the locos... does not offer returns. :O

southernnscale - Thu 9 Apr - 18:42

Well! Jim29t what was the result of the ultrasonic cleaner bath. Good or Bad?

jim29t - Wed 8 Apr - 11:52

Can I just dump an engine chassis in an ultrasonic cleaner with alcohol to remove hardened Marklin lubricant?
