Model: The locomotive has a close coupler mechanism, the headlights change between white and red using LEDs on the control compartment side, and a function decoder. The peak signal is functional in analogue mode. Length over buffers 167 mm.
New for 2022: Print variant of the EW I 1st class passenger car of the SBB in Era IV with old lettering. With the newly designed PIKO passenger coaches EW I of the SBB, contemporary and precise models of this most-produced Swiss family of coaches are now available, which reproduce all the relevant features of their prototypes with great attention to detail. The case impresses with sharp and extremely precise engravings. The cars have fine paintwork and printing, excellent rolling properties and convincingly take into account all the differences in the respective variants, including the design of the roofs and the folding or swinging doors. Interior lighting can easily be retrofitted to all cars.

Motor cars and control cars must each be equipped with a Next18 decoder for digital operation.
The 594 series by Renfe or TRD (Tren Regional Diesel) is a range of diesel trains specifically designed for regional service. This series was put into operation at the end of the 1990s and improved regional traffic on non-electrified railway lines with a top speed of 160 km/h and much more modern equipment than the old 592 and 593 series, as well as their successors of the old 597 series, which have been in service since was retired in 1995 and which is very similar in terms of number of cars and seats
The 594 series is based on the Danish IC3 train, developed by ABB Scandia, a company later acquired by Adtranz. IC3 trains operate in Denmark (since 1990), Israel and Sweden. The main difference from these is that the originals are built as Motor-Trailer-Motor (MRM) and are articulated (they share the bogie at the crossing of the cars).
The Spanish version was made in Spain under license from CAF. Its main feature is its pneumatic front, which allows easy coupling of the trains. The cab is foldable, allowing full communication between the coupled trains as if they were one unit. In contrast to earlier regional trains, the seats are fixed halfway in each direction.
Finished model made of plastic, with window insert. In addition, a spare wheel and a hydraulic stamp are included for display in some operating situations. The front wheels can be steered to show different construction site situations.

In 1956 MAN presented a new generation of hooded trucks. They were designed as short-nosed vehicles, ie the engine was no longer completely in front of the driver's cab, but was pushed a little way into it. As a result, the vehicles could be built a little shorter than before. The design was formally based on car construction: pontoon shape instead of the previous free-standing fenders and headlights. The motorization took place with diesel engines from our own production, the permissible total weights were between 4.3 and 30 tons. The vehicles were available in numerous versions: (flatbed truck, tractor unit, tipper vehicle, etc.) Variants with all-wheel drive were also available. (Source: Wikipedia)
LNER built some variants of small electric locomotives, such as the ES-1, for shunting and light tasks. This is an impression of one such locomotive painted in BR black with the lion and wheel emblem that uses the always popular and super-reliable KATO Pocketline design. At this affordable price, this locomotive will be very popular with beginners or simply with those who want an interesting curiosity on their layout.
Gaugemaster is pleased to be able to offer this locomotive for the first time in the N gauge as part of the GM Collection range.
A set of stickers with the red buffer beams is included in the box.
