Starting in 1952, the new class VT 08.5 diesel powered rail cars came into use on the long-distance express network for the new German Federal Railroad. These three or four-part units impressed people right away with their elegant streamlined shape ("Eierköpfe" / "Eggheads") and they had a galley, dining area, a writing compartment, and a mail compartment. Starting in 1953, these comfortable trains with their beautiful shape ran on all the important long-distance lines, whereby they accumulated up to 1,500 kilometers / 937 miles daily. Even on the new TEE network introduced in 1957 they had a chance to prove themselves right from the start because the class VT 11.5 powered rail car trains planned for this service were just beginning to be delivered.

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class VT 08.5 TEE diesel powered rail car train, as TEE 185 "Paris-Ruhr," with the route Paris – Liège – Cologne – Dortmund. 4-car set in a crimson red basic paint scheme. 1 powered car, road number VT 08 509, with galley and dining area (WRPwPost4üm), 2 intermediate cars, road numbers VM 08 516 and VM 08 518, with compartments (A4üm), 1 powered car, road number VT 08 517, with compartments (A4üm). All the cars were first class. Both powered rail cars have the TEE sign at the ends. The train looks as it did around 1957.
Model: The train is a 4-part unit consisting of 2 powered cars (VT) and 2 intermediate cars (VM). The train has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. Different station announcements, train announcements, and dialogs can be activated by means of function buttons. The train has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel mounted in the power car with a galley and dining area. 2 axles powered on one truck by means of cardan shafts. Traction tires. The train has factory-installed interior lighting and cab lighting. The triple headlights and dual red marker lights change over with the direction of travel, will work in in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. Maintenance-free, warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. There are special, close couplings between the cars. The train has built-in interior details. There is a clear view through the engineer's cabs on the end cars. The ends of the powered cars have separately applied imitations of prototype couplers and separately applied TEE signs.
The power pickup changes with the direction of travel so that the pickup shoe on the powered car at the front of the train is picking up power.
Length of the four-part train 114 cm / 44-7/8".
  • Prototypical reproduction of the 4-car TEE powered rail car train TEE 185 "Paris-Ruhr."
