Märklin 37793 TGV Euroduplex High-Speed Train
Prototype: French State Railways (SNCF) TGV Euroduplex (train à grande vitesse) high-speed train, in the version for service between Paris and Munich. 2 powered end cars (TK1 and TK2), 1 bi-level transition car (R1), 1st class, 1 bi-level transition car (R8), 2nd class. Powered rail car train road number 4709. The train looks as it does in Era VI.
Model: This is 4-part basic set. Both end cars (TK1 and TK2) are powered. The train has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It has controlled, high-efficiency propulsion in both powered end cars, centrally mounted. 4 axles powered using cardan shafts in each end car. Traction tires. The train has factory-installed interior lighting. The triple headlights and dual red marker lights change over with the direction of travel. They and the interior lighting will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The third headlight for the French headlight code can be turned off separately in digital operation (light function). Maintenance-free, warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. The cabs in the powered end cars have interior details. The train has separately applied metal grab irons. A powered end car and a transition car are permanently coupled together in pairs and have special close couplings with a guide mechanism. There is an additional guide mechanism in the Jakobs truck. The end cars have a pickup shoe changeover feature so that the pickup shoe at the front of the train is the one picking up power. The interior lighting is powered through a continuous electrical connection through the entire train. Each powered end car has two single-arm pantographs in different versions with a contact strip on one for the DB and on the other for the SNCF. The pantographs work mechanically but are not wired to take power. The train is a scale reproduction. The minimum radius for operation is therefore 360 mm / 14-3/16″, when there is sufficient clearance on both sides.
Length of the 4-part powered rail car train approximately 102 cm / 40-1/8″.
