Model: The locomotive frame, boiler, and tender are constructed chiefly of metal; the engineer's cab and separately applied parts are made of plastic. The locomotive has an mfx digital decoder with motor control. It can be run with DC power, AC power, Märklin Digital, and Märklin Systems. The locomotive has a powerful RE-max motor with a bell-shaped armature, made by the firm maxon motor ag. All of the driving axles are powered. The headlights are LEDs, they will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The engineer's cab lighting and the running gear lights, many other operating sounds, and the acceleration and braking delay can be controlled with Märklin Systems. The engineer's cab has separately applied details and walkover plates to the tender that can be changed (for operation or for display). There is a prototype coupler on the front of the locomotive, a Märklin Telex coupler on the tender, and replacement couplers come with the locomotive. Other parts that can be installed on the locomotive are included: headlight guard bars, coupler grab irons, 1 each locomotive engineer and fireman, as well as the brake rigging for the trailing truck (for display). Minimum radius for operation 1,020 mm / 40-3/16". Length over the buffers 75.0 cm / 29-1/2".
