Märklin 36638 Class 147.5 Electric Locomotive

Prototype: German Railroad, Inc. (DB AG) class 147.5 electric locomotive for long-distance service. Multiple system locomotive without flex panels, built by Bombardier as a regular production locomotive from the current TRAXX generation P160 AC3. Light gray long-distance service paint scheme with “Traffic Red” decorative stripes, in the current IC design. Road number 147 557-3. The locomotive looks as it did starting in July 2018.

Model: This electric locomotive is constructed of metal and includes an mfx digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has a special motor, centrally mounted. 4 axles powered by means of cardan shafts. Traction tires. Triple headlights and two red marker lights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. The headlights at Locomotive End 2 and 1 can be turned off separately in digital operation. When the headlights at both ends are turned off, then the “Double ‘A’ Light” function is on at both ends. Warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. There are 4 mechanically working pantographs (no power pickup from catenary). The side surfaces are modelled prototypically. Length over the buffers approximately 21.7 cm / 8-1/2″.
