Prototype: Freight train consisting of a steam locomotive with tender and two animal transport cars.
Model: The train has a battery drive and magnetic couplers between the individual cars. The locomotive and tender are a permanently coupled unit with a built-in battery holder. The locomotive has 3 speed levels in forward and reverse, 3 sound functions, and dual headlights. In addition, the locomotive has a water-based smoke generator so that the locomotive can steam from the smoke stack. Train length 57 cm / 22-7/16". Contents: The set has 21 sections of curved plastic track (R1), 7 sections of straight plastic track (length 171.7 mm / 6-3/4"), 4 sections of straight plastic track (length 188.3 mm / 7-13/32"), 2 sections of curved plastic track (turnout curve), 1 left turnout, 1 right turnout, and 1 crossing. An easy-to-use Märklin Power Control Stick is also included. Different farm animals, a rerailer, a model of a tractor, and 4 AA and 2 AAA batteries are included with this set. The train can be operated in 2 different frequencies thus allowing another battery-powered train to be operated with this set at the same time. This set can be expanded with the 23300 Plastic Track Extension Set.
This starter set can be expanded with the Farm (item number 72212) into a fun-filled farm themed play world.
