The long-distance headlights, the cab lighting, and the sound effects of the blower motors, as well as the direct control (acceleration/ braking delay) can be controlled with a 6021 Control Unit or Märklin Systems. The Central Station can be used to activate the sounds of the relay system at work, cab radio "chatter", the sounds of couplers engaging, and the "clickety-clack" sound of the train running on jointed rail as well as turn off the sound of squealing brakes. Large American design pantographs. Length over the couplers 28.0 cm / 11".
The sounds of pantographs being raised and lowered, the sounds of the relay system at work, cab radio "chatter", the sounds of couplers engaging, and the "clickety-clack"sound of the train running on jointed rail can be controlled with the Central Station as operating and surrounding sounds specific to the model.
