I realise this is a very old thread, but something does not quite make sense.Yes, however you need to swap out the axles for solid Marklin units otherwise you will create a short.
Thanks Joe - that makes perfect sense!You are right, Bergie. Running two rail cars on Marklin track wouldn't create a short but running Marklin or any other three rail cars on two rail track would. The same it true for O gauge. Two rail cars can be run on three rail track without any electrical problems.
