Just purchased this set, believed to be Marklin!

I was looking on one of my favorite sites, Etsy, as the sellers on there sometimes put on some really nice trains, accessories, etc. not to mention some nice shirts, signs, mugs made by some talented people!  Etsy is where I found one of my favorite sets: a small Bing clockwork set!

Anyway, this past week, I purchased this one from someone in Switzerland.  After contacting them and negotiating on the price, I bought it.  This is the photo from the listing, showing everything.  I'll post more when I get it.  Depending on condition, I won't do much to it except make sure it's in good running order.  I like it having the look of it being played with and loved as time went on.  Let me know what you think.  I'm excited to get it!

Thank you very much for the information!  SNCF231E: I have to also contribute and say that you have quite an amazing collection!  I've been looking at your videos on YouTube, and I could watch those for hours!

Once I get the train, I'll post some photos on here, as well as progress on whatever I might need to do with it to get it cleaned up and ready for more years of running and enjoyment!

The set arrived safely from the seller (who was in Switzerland!) and I will post photos this weekend for everyone to see it!

On first look, the locomotive will need some work to get the clockwork in shape for operation.  Is there anyone out there I can send her to for getting it looked at and working?  I know she needs a reversing lever installed, as that's missing (but if it can be set to forward only internally if a new reversing lever is too expensive, I'll do that).

If anyone can help me with that, I would appreciate it!
