Replacing 3-Pole Motors with 5-Pole Motors

In 2000, Marklin introduced the 5-pole motor, which offered better performance than the 3-pole motor used in all Marklin Z-scale locomotives for the 28 previous years. At first, only a few select models were available with the improved powerplant. And since about the fourth quarter of 2000, the old 3-pole motor was phased out entirely.

Luckily, most older locomotives can be easily retrofitted with the newer motors. (The exceptions are the 0-6-0 steam and diesel engines where the motor armature is not removable from the chassis.)

5-Pole Motor Upgrade Table

The following chart lists all (or nearly all) Z-scale locomotives Marklin has produced (either sold separately or as part of a set), and the corresponding model numbers for the appropriate 3-pole motor, 5-pole motor, and brushes. Many locomotives once sold with 3-pole motors are now being sold with 5-pole motors, and with no change to the model number. If you bought an engine recently and you're not sure which motor it came with, open it up and count the poles on the motor armature.

Note that the brushes used in 3-pole and 5-pole motors are similar, but not the same (the model numbers for 5-pole brushes end with a '1'). Most of the 5-pole motors listed below come with a pair of brushes pre-installed; for those motors that don't have internally-mounted brushes, however, you'll have to purchase the brushes separately.

An n/a in the 5-Pole Motor column means that the old 3-pole motor cannot be removed, or that a corresponding 5-pole motor is not available. An n/a in the 3-Pole Motor column means that the locomotive was produced only with a 5-pole motor. (Note that upgrades are not possible for some engines, even though they have been produced with both 3 and 5-pole motors.) Unknown simply means that I don't have a part number yet. You should be able to order any of these parts from any authorized Marklin dealer.
