Model: These TEE "Rheingold" cars are completely new tooling. The cars look as they did around 1970. The roof shapes, side walls, underbodies, and skirting are specific to the type of car. The trucks are Minden-Deutz designs with brake shoes or disk brakes, magnetic rail brakes, and separately applied generators. The vista dome car (type ADümh) has 8 roof windows. The car roofs can be removed from the cars. The hump-backed dining car also has working table lamps. These four-axle express train passenger cars are not available separately. All of the cars have detailed interiors and built-in interior lighting. A 60960 on/off decoder can be installed in the cars. The cars have guide mechanisms for the couplers in order to provide close-coupled car spacing. The cars are ready for installation of reproduction prototype couplers. Minimum radius for operation 1,020 mm / 40-3/16". Total length over the buffers 225.0 cm / 88-9/16".
The class 103 electric locomotive, item no. 55103, is an excellent complement to the Rheingold cars. Three additional Rheingold cars are available under item no. 58038.
