Prototype: French State Railways (SNCF) TGV Duplex V 150 (train ā grande vitesse) high-speed train, in the version for service and composition as a 5-part powered rail car train for the world record run on April 3, 2007. 1 powered end car (TK2), 1 transition car (R8), 1 intermediate car (R4), 1 transition car (R1), 1 powered end car (TK1). Double anti-roll shock absorbers on the trucks, powered end car TK2 without a pantograph on the roof, altered cab windows, and a one-piece hood. Only powered end car TK1 equipped with a pantograph. Powered rail car train road number 4402. The train looks as it did in 2007.
Model: 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 with a flywheel in both powered end cars, centrally mounted. 4 axles powered through 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. Powered end car TK2 prototypically has a pantograph removed. Only powered end car TK1 has a pantograph. 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. The TGV Duplex V 150 high-speed train comes with a consecutively numbered certificate of authenticity. Length of the 5-part powered rail car train approximately 125 cm / 49-1/4".
