Prototype:

Electric Railcar 491 of the German Railways (DB) in Blue and Cream livery. These locomotives were designed for tourist trains running from mountains to open countryside. The roof is mostly made of glass to give passengers the maximum view of their surroundings. These locomotives were aptly named "The Glass train". These units featured twin lamps at the front and rear and do not require any turnaround time as the driver simply gets up and walks to the other end of the locomotive. For power these locomotives have 1 scissor pantograph and 1 single-pole pantograph with double grinding pieces to glide along catenary wires. This unit is decorated to look as it did around 1986.

Use:

Passenger transport.

Model:

This model is fitted with a digital decoder and an extensive sound module. The function buttons can be used to trigger a contemporary welcome message, as well as the announcement of a station, an additional notice for the passengers and the end station (train pass). Controlled high-performance drive. 2 axles in a bogie, traction tyres and all wheel pick ups for smooth running. Built-in interior furnishings. The traction unit is equipped with a driver and a number of passengers. Standard built-in interior lighting. Depending on the direction of travel, changing tri-peak peak signal and 2 red final lights can be operated conventionally and digitally. Lighting with maintenance-free warm-white and red light-emitting diodes (LED). Interior lighting can be dimmed as a digital additional function. Bogies with differently long wheelbases. Used panoramic windows. Suction openings for the ventilation and macrofone on the roof. Version with 1 shear current collector and 1 single-pole current collector each with double grinding piece.
