Marklin 58284 - Low Side Car with VW Bug
Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) type Gmhs 53 boxcar.
Model: This is a two-axle boxcar with built-in track cleaning equipment. The rails on the track are cleaned by two cleaning blocks installed parallel to each other on the underside of the car. The two cleaning blocks are mounted separately. Minimum radius for operation 600 mm / 23-5/8".
Length over the buffers 31.5 cm / 12-3/8".
Charlie's Tip: The track cleaning car is a car that will make itself useful when you put it in your train. Two flexible cleaning blocks are mounted between the wheel axles; they wipe dust and grit from the rails. Keep the track cleaning car running in your train so that your track remains clean and thus ensures good electrical contact for locomotives.
