Default Marklin Parts?

I have a Marklin engine/base that is in reasonably good shape, the boiler however is missing. I've thought about making one.
Are replacements available like Wilesco has?
Other wise, I've thought about just mounting it on a new base without the boiler. Or just selling it. But I'd rather set it going if can find a replacement boiler.

Thanks, Sid

Marklin made many dozens of types and sizes of steam plants, so hard to know what size you need. That said, I've seldom seen loose boilers for sale that would work. Wilesco boilers are entirely different but could work if you don't care about it looking original. Can you post a photo of what's left? It may not be worth the effort and expense.

That's one of their later models from the 40s-50s. Even complete they're not so valuable these days, although the little dynamo is a plus. You might be able to find a Wilesco boiler that could fit if you just wanted to see it run again.

I think then, I'll just mount it on a new base, minus a boiler.
Run it on air.
