Marklin Z Scale F7 Locomotive

The Marklin  Z Scale F7 locomotive is a great piece that many Marklin collectors and just general z scale modelers love to own.  While one of the most common Marklin F7 is the Santa Fe with the red war bonnet, you will find a variety of road names including Burlington Northern, Southern Pacific,  Pennsylvania, Alaska, B&O, Chessie System, Burlington Route and more.   You will also find some variations of the Marklin F7 like a version of the Southern Pacific, the Starlight Express and others that you will only find in a set.  Earlier units had a 3 pole unit while later models have a 5 pole.    So what is the difference of a 3 pole verses a 5 pole motor?  The biggest thing you will note is better low end speeds and a quieter motor.  Marklin changed over to the 5 pole versions completely in their F7’s by the end of 2000.  If you have an older Marklin Z scale F-7, you can change it over to a 5 pole with not to much trouble.

You will also find some Marklin Mini Club F-7 B unit locomotives and some A-B-A sets as well.  You may be able to find Marklin F-7 starter set here and there as well.  The “Meet Me In New Orleans” set actually has a Southern F-7 passenger set along with a 2-8-2 freight set and lots of track and even two controllers!  Below you will find a few of the current offerings of used F-7 Marklin locomotives on ebay or you can click here to find more.
