Default I think its a Marklin

Hello, I think I picked up a old Marklin engine and am looking for some details and most importantly where to get the boiler class tube, maybe a smoke stack and generator cover.

Thanks!
Sean

I'm no expert, but I would agree that what you have is a Marklin engine. I have bought glass tubing on ebay for my toy steam engines. Can't help you with the other parts you need.

Thanks, I have seen them, what might be of use is a owners manual that has dimensional information and installation. It would make selecting one of the 4664 of them a bit easier.
Anyone out there in cyber space have one them scanned?
Please feel free to respond !
Thanks,
Sean

Sean,
Even an owner's manual won't help as they didn't provide that information. What you need to do is take a careful measurement of the i.d. of the fittings that hold the water glass. You can use a digital caliper or similar. The size is most likely metric and you'll have to find someone who can supply you with a small piece of laboratory glass tubing (often in metric diameters). Whether it's metric or not, you need the exact diam. that will fit snugly up inside the fitting, otherwise it will leak.

Question Brass tubing

Some of the tubing needs to replaced as it its bent beyond repair. Is there a supplier of model steam engine brass tubing that comes lengths > 12". Ideally it would be coiled and 3 meters.
