TRIX 25480 SNCB Serie 1 EpIII DCC Digital Sound. HO In Stock
Prototype: Undoubtedly, the mighty class 1 Pacific locomotives formed the high point of Belgian steam locomotive building. Between 1935 and 1938, 35 units were built as road numbers 1.001-1.035. Their very successful external shape clearly characterized their mighty power. They were used mostly pulling heavy express trains on the route Oostende – Brussels – Liège – Aachen and on the route from Brussels via Arlon to Luxembourg City with an average speed of 80 or even 100 km/h / 50 or even 63 mph. With a performance of 3,400 horsepower, an axle load of 22 metric tons, and a maximum speed of 120 km/h / 75 mph, they occupied a position of honor in international comparisons. Belgian State Railroad (SNCB/NMBS) class 1 express steam locomotive. Road number 1.030. The locomotive looks as it did around 1953/54.
Model: The locomotive has an mfx digital decoder and extensive light and sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion with a flywheel, mounted in the boiler. Three axles powered. Traction tires. The locomotive and tender are constructed mostly of metal. The locomotive has a factory-installed smoke generator. The headlights on the locomotive and tender change over with the direction of travel. They and the built-in smoke unit will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The emergency light on the smoke box door can be controlled separately in digital operation. There is also cab lighting and flickering firelight in the firebox that can be controlled separately in digital operation. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. There is an adjustable coupling with a guide mechanism between the locomotive and tender. The rear of the tender has a close coupler with a guide mechanism and an NEM coupler pocket. The minimum radius for unlimited operation is 437.5 mm / 17-1/4" (Radius 2). The locomotive can be run on a radius of 360 mm / 14-3/16" (Radius 1) if the clearance gauge is ignored. Brake hoses, imitation prototype couplers, and signal holders are included. Length over the buffers approximately 28.4 cm / 11-3/16".
