Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) commuter shuttle train consisting of a class 23 steam locomotive, type ABnb 703 "Silberling" / "Silver Coin" commuter car, 1st and 2nd class, type Bnb 720 "Silberling" / "Silver Coin" commuter car, 2nd class, and a type BDnf 738 "Silberling mit Hasenkasten-Kopf" / "Silver Coin with Rabbit Hutch End" commuter cab control car, 2nd class with a baggage area.
Model: There is an electrical connection between the cars. The power pickup, the headlights and the marker lights change over with the direction of travel between the locomotive and the cab control car. The headlights and marker lights for the train that change over with the direction of travel and the smoke generator that can be installed in the locomotive will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The locomotive has an mfx digital decoder and a sound generator. It also has controlled Softdrive Sine high-efficiency propulsion and a maintenance-free, compact design motor. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and the tender are constructed mostly of metal. There is a close coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and the tender. A 7226 smoke generator can be installed in the locomotive. The pickup shoe changeover can be deactivated in digital operation when the locomotive is running by itself and the normal headlight changeover can be activated. Only the pickup shoe changeover can be deactivated in conventional operation when the locomotive is running by itself. The headlights are warm white LEDs. The locomotive and tender have close couplers in NEM coupler pockets with guide mechanisms. Brake hoses and protection sleeves for the piston rods are included as detail parts. The "Silberlinge" / "Silver Coins" commuter cars have lightweight Minden-Deutz design trucks with double brake shoes. The cab control car has 3 warm white LEDs for headlights and 2 red LEDs for marker lights that change over with the direction of travel. The 73400/73401 interior lighting kit (2 each per car) can be installed in all of the cars. Total length over the buffers 109.4 cm / 43-1/16".
