Model: All of the cars have factory-installed LED interior lighting with warm white LEDs. The open seating car has factory-installed marker lights. All of the cars come from the factory with current-conducting close couplers. The interior lighting and the marker lights work only in conjunction with the humped back dining car from the 43882 set and they can be turned on and off digitally using a decoder. The specified sequence of cars must be maintained for this purpose. The roof shapes, side walls, underbodies, and skirting are specific to the car types. The trucks are type Minden-Deutz with brake shoes, magnet rail brakes, and separately applied generators. The train destination signs are imprinted on the cars. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Total length over the buffers approximately 85 cm / 33-7/16".
Motive power and an add-on express train passenger car set to go with this car set can be found in the Märklin H0 assortment under item numbers 39126 and 43882.
