Model: The power car is behind the 1st class open seating car in the 6-car train. It has an mfx digital decoder and comes from the factory with sound functions that can be turned on and off. It also has a 5-pole skewed armature motor with a flywheel, centrally mounted. 4 axles powered through cardan shafts. Traction tires. The headlights (they change over with the direction of travel) and interior lights are maintenance-free, warm white LEDs; the marker lights are maintenance-free red LEDs. The lights will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The train has four different pantographs in an offset arrangement and detailed roof equipment. The train also has separately applied metal grab irons. The engineer's cabs and the passenger areas have interior details. There is a special close coupled mechanical and electrical connection between the cars. Both end cars have pickup shoes, and the power pickup switches automatically to the pickup shoe at the front of the train. The ends of the train have a representation of the Scharfenberg coupler (non-working). Minimum radius for operation 360 mm / 14-3/16". Train length approximately 161.0 cm / 63-3/8".

Prototype information

The EC RABe – A Gray Mouse in Cheese Land. After the end of TEE service and the beginning of Eurocity connections in 1987, the 5 class RAe powered rail car trains now operating as 6-car trains were rebuilt. Second class seating was installed, and the class designation was therefore changed to RABe. These powered rail car trains were given a light gray / dark gray paint scheme in keeping with the EC look, but one that was rather monotone compared to the elegant TEE paint scheme. These trains...

The EC RABe – A Gray Mouse in Cheese Land. After the end of TEE service and the beginning of Eurocity connections in 1987, the 5 class RAe powered rail car trains now operating as 6-car trains were rebuilt. Second class seating was installed, and the class designation was therefore changed to RABe. These powered rail car trains were given a light gray / dark gray paint scheme in keeping with the EC look, but one that was rather monotone compared to the elegant TEE paint scheme. These trains were run on the routes Zürich-Milan and Zürich-Stuttgart and were soon known as "Gray Mice". The trains' age however became increasingly noticeable, and when transformer damage and axle breaks mounted up, they were reduced to TGV feeder service between Bern and Frasne and were retired by 1999. One of the trains was overhauled and restored in 2003 to the original TEE paint scheme; it is now an historic, operational train belonging to the group "SBB Historic".
