Example:Marklin made over 1 million locomotives of the 3000 model.But it takes two different sliders depending on the year made.
If your 3000 was made from 1957 thru 1971; then it has code “*,,A, B, or C” and uses EE Lot 034; Part 7173. Look at the picture in the chart for 7173; you see 2 large locating holes in the slider; your loco should have 2 large pins that fit with these holes.
If your 3000 was made from 1972 thru 1996 (or later); then it has code “D, or E” and uses EE Lot 038; Part 7185. Look at the picture in the chart for 7185; you see that this slider has many of the same dimensions as 7173, but it does NOT have any locating holes; your loco also does NOT have locating pins.
What do the codes mean after the model number?Refers to the year of production:
NOTE!!!The older Marklin HO locomotives (as in codes “*” or “A” or “B”) had a “larger” head screw to attach the slider, and the original slider had a “larger” hole in the copper strip to avoid shorting the current.If you replace the slider but use the original screw, there is a likely possibility that the new slider (which has a smaller hole in the copper strip) will “short” (aka come in contact) with the large head of the old screw when the loco encounters the extra high studs found on turnouts.We highly suggest you use a new model screw (75610) if you are replacing the slider for the first time. Thus when replacing your slider with a new part 7173, we recommend that you also get a new slider screw 75610 which we sell as EE Lot 044.

Timothy Eckert started playing with Marklin HO when he was 5 years old; his father's job with RCA sent him to Germany on a regular basis and he always came home with Marklin trains in his suitcase! One set of used Marklin passenger cars that his parents bought at a garage sale was a set of 351 cars, but the very rare version with the prohibited swastika on the sides. After 20 years of play, it was finally realized how collectible these were, and they were traded for a large lot of K track and signals and cash. Receiving the Marklin SIGNALS ended up being MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than the cash, as this opened up a whole new world of signals and automatic train control (ATC) for Tim. He has spent much time since then building signal controllers, and playing with the finer points of ATC! Eckert Engineering was created with Marklin, Signals, and Digital Power Supplies at the forefront. (Tim's day job as a Engineer in the nuclear commercial power industry helped give him the electrical engineering know-how necessary.) But Tim Eckert has decided that it is time to start a slow turnover of Eckert Engineering to his youngest son, Andrew. Andrew has graduated High School and has enrolled in a local college; he has shown an interest in the Marklin Trains and in the business. So, each day we have the Apprentice learning from the Master yet another aspect of the wonderful world of Marklin Trains!!
