This is an authentic reproduction of one of the beautiful Rhaetian Railroad (RhB) "Allegra", to modern rollingstock that is found on the entire network of the Rhaetian Railway system.
Entering service on the famous RhB starting in October of 2009, 15 of the sleek and powerful "Allegra" ABe 8/12 three-unit electric multiple unit cars are now in operation on various routes, often pulling additional freight and passenger cars.
Perfect for service on indoor or outdoor layouts, these replicas feature a sturdy Buehler motor in each of the powered end cars, and can easily pull additional equipment. Reversing LED headlights, a DCC connector, two general-purpose electrical sockets, traction tires and a multi-position selector switch for easy changeover to different types of electrical pickup are standard. All cars feature metal wheels and close coupling, along with superb details that include rear view mirrors, antennas, brake hoses, and snowplows, plus complete driver's compartments and interior details, easily seen and admired thanks to opening doors and working interior lighting.
The limited-run models also feature an new Maerklin developped MTS decoder that provides a full range of sounds, and the pantographs raise and lower automatically to match the direction of travel. The set comes decorated for the 100th anniversary of the Bernina line in 2010,and includes a commemorative booklet with photos and history of the route.
