    Roco 70442 - Cogwheel Electric locomotive

    Product Features and Details
    HO Scale DC Era III 

    Cogwheel electric locomotive (similar to the class E 69 loco) from the Alpspitz-Bahn.

    - Can be operated on and off toothed rack tracks
    - Due to its enormous climbing ability on cogwheel tracks, the machine can cope with extreme differences in altitude (up to 35%) even when space is limited.
    - Due to the particularly high transmission ratio, it is also ideal for shunting operations on standard lines
    - FLEISCHMANN PROFI plug-in coupling for cogwheel railway operation for replacement is included

    Cogwheel railways radiate an exceptional fascination with the unique combination of mountains, complex routing and numerous bridges and tunnels. The locomotion of the train is based on a cogwheel that locks into a rack located between the tracks, since the standard friction between the wheel and the track is not sufficiently robust for the steep inclines. On cogwheel railway lines that are based on what is called a mixed system and where friction sections alternate with rack sections, depending on the gradient, the tractive power is exerted by the same machine. There are a lot of private cogwheel railways in the Alps, which are very popular with tourists from all over the world.
