Prototype: Add-on cars for the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) class RABe 501 "Giruno" high-speed powered rail car train. 1 type D (B9) intermediate car, 2nd class, with a pantograph. 1 type E (B8) intermediate car, 2nd class. The cars look as they did in 2021.
Model: This is a 2-part add-on car set to expand the class RABe 501 "Giruno" high-speed powered rail car train to an 11-part unit. The cars have factory-installed interior lighting with maintenance-free warm white LEDs. The interior lighting is supplied with power from a continuous electrical connection throughout the entire train. It can only work and be controlled digitally in conjunction with the basic set. The pantograph on an intermediate car can also be raised and lowered as a digital function only in conjunction with the basic set and using the latter's decoder. Both intermediate cars are coupled permanently to each other. There is a guide mechanism in the Jakobs trucks. The train is modelled true-to-scale. The minimum radius for operation is 360 mm / 14-3/16". Length of the pair of cars 40.2 cm / 15-13/16".
