Prototype: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) class RAm TEE diesel powered railcar train as the TEE "EDELWEISS", with the train route Amsterdam - Brussels North - Luxembourg - Strasbourg - Basle - Zürich. 4-part set in a crimson/beige basic paint scheme. 1 motor car, 1 compartment car, 1 dining car, 1 open seating car with a cab control compartment. Diesel powered railcar train road number 501. The train looks as it did at the end of the Fifties.
Model: This is a 4-part unit. It has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound and light functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, centrally mounted in the motor car. Two of the 3 driving wheelsets in each of the two 3-axle trucks are powered through cardan shafts. Traction tires. The train has factory-installed interior lighting in the compartment, dining, and open seating cars. The triple headlights and dual marker lights that change over with the direction of travel as well as the interior lighting will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The interior lighting in the baggage compartment of the motor car can be controlled separately in digital operation. The engine room lighting in the motor car, the cab lighting in the motor car and in the cab control compartment of the open seating car, and table lamps in the dining car can each be controlled separately in digital operation. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. There is a multi-conductor special current-conducting coupling with a guide mechanism between the powered railcar train units for a continuous electrical connection for the entire train. The train has a pickup shoe circuit with current pickup at the front of the train, either the motor car or the open seating car with a cab control compartment. The train has many separately applied details. The Scharfenberg coupler (non-working) is modelled at both ends of the train. The minimum radius for operation is 437.5 mm / 17-1/4". The train can also be run on Radius 1 if you ignore the clearance gauge.
Total length of the powered railcar train over the couplers approximately 113 cm / 44-1/2".
