Double Diesel Locomotive.

Product

Model: This double locomotive has an mfx decoder, 2 controlled high-efficiency propulsion systems, a sound effects generator, and auxiliary functions. Two axles powered in each locomotive, with traction tires. The headlights and the lighted number boards will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The diesel locomotive operating sounds, horn sound, bell sound, as well as the acceleration and braking delay can be controlled with the 6021 Control Unit or Märklin Systems....

The diesel locomotive operating sounds, horn sound, bell sound, as well as the acceleration and braking delay can be controlled with the 6021 Control Unit or Märklin Systems. The sound of squealing brakes, and the Mars light in the direction of travel can be controlled with Märklin Systems. The locomotive has a powerful speaker. Both locomotives have special electrical and mechanical connections. There are close couplers in standard coupler pockets at both ends; they can be replaced with American couplers or pilot skirting. Minimum radius for operation 360 mm / 14-3/16". Length over the couplers 47.2 cm / 18-9/16".

Prototype information

Trains in California. The Southern Pacific's Daylight concept first appeared in 1937 with the "Coast Daylight" train between the railroad's home town in San Francisco and Los Angeles. The cars were painted with broad bands in gleaming orange and light red on a dark background; the marvelous "Golden State" class steam locomotives were painted in a similar fashion.

Trains in California. The Southern Pacific's Daylight concept first appeared in 1937 with the "Coast Daylight" train between the railroad's home town in San Francisco and Los Angeles. The cars were painted with broad bands in gleaming orange and light red on a dark background; the marvelous "Golden State" class steam locomotives were painted in a similar fashion. Other trains in the Daylight series followed such as the "Sacramento Daylight", the "Noon Daylight" or the overnight train "Sunset Limited". From 1953 on, the GS-2 to GS-5 "Northern" locomotives (4-8-4 wheel arrangement) as the motive power for the Daylight trains were replaced by diesel locomotives. In addition to the EMD E and F type locomotives, the majestic ALCO PA engines were the chief motive power for the trains. Over 60 of this locomotive design were finally delivered for the SP and its subsidiary companies in the Daylight colors. Locomotives for other trains also ran in this design, which was brand identification for the Southern Pacific well into the Sixties. After that, these locomotives were given a simpler but striking red-gray paint scheme. With the reorganization of national passenger service by Amtrak, several Daylight trains were still run after 1971, but only in the silver standard design and, most importantly, without the famous ALCO PA locomotives. Amtrak did not take these great machines into its motive power roster of passenger locomotives. The Southern Pacific used part of the PA series in freight service and traded part in towards new locomotives.
