    Product Features and Details
    HO Scale DC Era III 

    Cogwheel steam locomotive of the Alpspitz Bahn.

    - Can be operated on and off toothed rack tracks
    - Due to its enormous climbing ability on cogwheel track, the machine can cope with extreme differences in altitude (up to 35%) even when space is limited
    - 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.

    - Number of driven axles - 3
    - Coupling - NEM shaft 362 with close coupling mechanism
