This is for a Marklin 8800 Mini Club DB 89006 Black Loco Z Gauge 4-1/2" long I don't know anything about trains.

I do not have the means to test this (100% buyer satisfaction guaranteed) Out of the many engines I have sold

only a couple didn't work. This does need a good cleaning. It is a heavy item for such a small Loco.

OR, if you would like to know the story of the...

Venetian artist and my sister, who owned this and an incredible life lived in the most romantic city in the world,

then sit back in your desk chair and enjoy...
