AKN Class VT 3.09 Powered Rail Bus Set, Era IV

Prototype: Altona-Kaltenkirchen-Neumünster Railroad Company (AKN) class VT 3.09 rail bus motor car and class VS 3.51 rail bus control car. The AKN rail buses were built at the same time as the German Federal Railroad VT 98 classics by the Uerdingen Powered Rail Car and Car Company. However, the AKN units had only one motor setup instead of the two motors customary on the DB VT 98. The unit looks as it did at the end of the Eighties.
