Rack-and-pinion loco, for both standard and rack railways
Finely detailed, livered and lettered. Inset windows. Sprung pantographs (not electrically functional). Cast metal chassis. Drive on all 6 wheels, one axle of which is fitted with rack gear wheel (module 0,4). Automatic couplings at each end.
With its extraordinary climbing abilities (up to 25%), this loco can conquer great heights in the smallest amount of space.Its specially low gearing and slow running, mean that the loco is also best suited for shunting work. It can run on both standard or rack track. When running on rack track (cat.-nr. 9119), then – just as on the prototype – the loco should always be on the valley end of the train.
