Prototype: Steam locomotive, gondola, and a tank car.
Model: The Building Block Train consists of a steam locomotive, a four-axle gondola, and a four-axle tank car. The bodies for the locomotive and cars can be built from building blocks. Kits for a steam locomotive, a gondola, and a tank car are included for this. The kits contain the building blocks for the bodies and stickers for fictitious lettering. The kit for the locomotive also contains a Mobile Power Unit for the light functions and a sound building block for the sound function in the locomotive. The sound building block has running sounds, which can be activated with the light mode "Permanent Light" and played back in a continuous loop. Light building blocks are included with the locomotive kit, and these building blocks light up individual details on the locomotive. The Mobile Power Unit has 6 light functions: permanent light, blinking, dimming on and off, sound-dependent light (such as in the rhythm of your favorite music), lighting in the rhythm of a heartbeat, or lighting with an associated stand-by mode. The building blocks are compatible with other makes of building blocks. A USB charging cable and assembly instructions are included. The frames for the locomotive and cars have peg plates, which are provided with the customary pegs. These pegs invite you to build with building blocks. The frame for the steam locomotive has an mfx digital decoder.
