The Power House
First the Ties, then the Ballast. The class 260 from Märklin, which is always ready for service, is taking over this work on your layout from now on. Marked by wind and weather, no switching work is too heavy for this powerhouse. In the perfect interplay of an mfx+ decoder and the new slender Telex couplers, the class 260 switches every car exactly to its position. In addition to many digital functions, a coupler procedure is also a component part of the variety of operating options of this model railroad locomotive with its faded paint.
Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 260 diesel switch engine. Ocean blue / ivory basic paint scheme. Diesel hydraulic drive with a jackshaft. Road number 260 535-0. The locomotive looks as it did around 1978.
