Product description

Model: The locomotive has the new mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, in the boiler. 3 axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. The 7226 smoke unit comes installed in the locomotive. The dual headlights change over with the direction of travel. They and the smoke unit will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. Maintenance-free warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. There is an adjustable close coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and tender for different curves. There is a close coupler with an NEM pocket and guide mechanism on rear of the tender. There is a mechanism in the tender to lower the coal load so that in the operations mode the coal usage can be represented visually in the tender. The raising and lowering of the coal load can be activated with auxiliary function F8 for digital controllers not equipped for mfx+. Protective sleeves for the piston rods, brake hoses, and figures of the engineer and fireman are included as detail parts. Minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Length over the buffers 27.5 cm / 10-13/16".
