Maintenance-free LED's imitate the light given off by the glowing slabs. A built-in movement switch trips the electronic circuit automatically when the car is in motion. After the car has been left on a siding, the glowing light will go out in a few minutes. This keeps the battery from running down unnecessarily in a yard for example. The car can be used on both AC and DC systems. The batteries (type AAA) are not included.

Prototype information

Steel slabs should lose as little heat as possible on the way from the steel works to the rolling mill. Otherwise, the slabs would have to be reheated at great expenditure of energy. For that reason the steel slabs are protected to a large extent against heat loss with thermal hoods during the transport process. Imitation of the glowing steel slabs.
