Trainset with an electric rack-and-pinion railway locomotive (similar to E 69) and two coaches of the “Seehorn Bahn”.

■ Locomotive for realistic rack-and-pinion railway operation
■ Suitable for the FLEISCHMANN rack track 9119
■ Due to its enormous climbing ability on rack-and-pinion rails, the loco can cope with extreme differences in altitude (up to 25 %) even when space is limited
■ The locomotive is suitable for operation on FLEISCHMANN rack-and-pinion rails but also on standard rails
■ Red LED tail light on right side, can be switched off

With their unique combination of mountain landscape and bold routing featuring numerous bridges and tunnels, rack-and-pinion railways are particularly fascinating. The movement of the train is achieved through the engagement of a toothed wheel in a toothed rack positioned in the centre of the track, as the usual friction generated between wheels and rails is insufficient for the steep inclines. In rack-and-pinion railway of the so-called mixed system, where friction sections alternate with toothed rack sections, depending on the gradient ratios, the tractive force is exerted by one and the same machine. A particularly large number of private rack-and-pinion railways are found in the Alps, and these attract tourists from all over the world.
