Hi all, before I go to Germany (Modell-land) has anybody got a spare U class chimney with spark arrestor they'd like to part with? :)

You will need to say what type - the old screw in type with integrated smoke unit or the new type for the standard 5v smoke unit (loco with plastic valve gear).

My bad, its the newer all plastic with the 5v unit. Saying newer, the loco is of 1989 vintage!

A pity as the old type was a standard part held in stock by most dealers.

Have you asked Chalk if they have one?

The old screw-in type that has a nut on the end is much the same as an earlier Stainz except a little taller because of the additional base to the chimney. Interchangeable though.
Perhaps the new type is also similar to the newer Stains locomotives.
