  • Product description

    Model: The locomotive is completely new tooling. The frame and locomotive body are constructed of die-cast zinc. The locomotive has many separately applied parts constructed of centrifugally cast brass. It also has an mfx digital decoder with up to 32 functions, a built-in buffer capacitor that can be set by parameters, controlled high-efficiency propulsion, and extensive sound functions such as running sounds, blowers, locomotive whistle, multiple stop announcement, other announcements, and warnings. The locomotive can be operated with AC power, DC power, Märklin Digital, and DCC. The high-efficiency motors power all of the axles. In digital operation, the double arm pantographs can be raised and lowered by servomotors. White/red LED headlights and marker lights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. A long-distance headlight function can also be controlled, and there is white LED lighting in the cabs, which changes over with the direction of travel.

    The cab doors can be opened, there are interior details, and one cab has a figure of a locomotive engineer. There are grab irons constructed of metal and many other separately applied details such as builder plates, windshield wipers, whistle and much more. The buffer beams have sprung buffers and separately applied brake lines. A factory-installed, remote controlled Telex coupler is mounted on the rear, and a prototype coupler is on the front. Each can be swapped out for the other type of coupler (included with the locomotive).
    The minimum radius for operation is 1,020 mm / 40-3/16".
    Length over the buffers 59 cm / 23-1/4".
    Weight approximately 6.2 kilograms / 13 pounds 11 ounces.
