Model: This is a 2-part add-on car set to expand the class RABe 501 "Giruno" high-speed powered rail car train to an 11-part unit. The cars have factory-installed interior lighting with maintenance-free warm white LEDs. The interior lighting is supplied with power from a continuous electrical connection throughout the entire train. It can only work and be controlled digitally in conjunction with the basic set. The pantograph on an intermediate car can also be raised and lowered as a digital function only in conjunction with the basic set and using the latter's decoder. Both intermediate cars are coupled permanently to each other. There is a guide mechanism in the Jakobs trucks. The train is modelled true-to-scale. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Length of the pair of cars 40.2 cm / 15-13/16".
The 39810 basic set can be expanded to a prototypical 11-part unit with the 43461, 43462, and 43463 add-on car sets.
This add-on car set for the class RABe 501 "Giruno" can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item number 23282.
