TGV POS High-Speed Train

A World Premiere: High-Tech Windshield Wipers!
This new edition of the TGV POS has it all: The windshield wipers on the TGV's large windshield can be activated in the H0 model in digital operation. A coup that will do more than just fascinate model railroaders. The roof has also been corrected or had changes added to it to be in line with the prototype.

Prototype: French State Railways (SNCF) TGV POS (train à grande vitesse) high-speed train, in the version for service between Paris and Southern Germany. 2 powered end cars, 1 transition car (R1), 1st/2nd class, 1 transition car (R8), 2nd class. Powered rail car road number 4415. The train looks as it did in 2012.

Highlights:
- Scale 1:87 reproduction.
- Working windshield wipers, can be controlled digitally.
- Factory-installed LED interior lighting.
- Extensive sound functions.
- Both end cars powered.
- New roof hoods on the transition cars.

Model: The train is a 4-part set. Both end cars (TK1 and TK2) are powered. The train has an mfx digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It has controlled, high-efficiency propulsion in both powered end cars, centrally mounted. 4 axles powered through cardan shafts in each end car. Traction tires. The train has factory-installed interior lighting. The triple headlights and dual red marker lights change over with the direction of travel. They and the interior lighting will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The third headlight for the French headlight code can be turned off separately in digital operation (light function). The headlights and interior lighting are maintenance-free, warm white LEDs and the marker lights are maintenance-free red LEDs. The train has separately applied, working windshield wipers in each cab, and they can be controlled separately in digital operation in the respective cabs (switching function F/R). The cabs in the powered end cars have interior details. The train has separately applied metal grab irons. A powered end car and a transition car are permanently coupled together in pairs and have special close couplings with a guide mechanism. There is an additional guide mechanism in the Jakobs truck. The transition cars have roof hoods. The end cars have a pickup shoe changeover feature so that the pickup shoe at the front of the train is the one picking up power. The interior lighting is powered through a continuous electrical connection through the entire train. Each powered end car has 2 different design single-arm pantographs. The pantographs work mechanically but are not wired to take power. The train is a scale reproduction. The minimum radius for operation is therefore 360 mm / 14-3/16", when there is sufficient clearance on both sides. Length of the 4-part set 101 cm / 39-3/4".
