Union Pacific har nylig restaurert Big Boy nr. 4014 tilbake til kjørbar stand. Big Boy er verdens største damplokomotiv. Modellen har utrolig flotte detaljer, og leveres i treeske. En skikkelig samlermodell!
NB! Modellen går på R1-svinger, men Märklin anbefaler større kurver. Det kan også bli problemer med signalmaster, KL-master etc. på grunn av det store overhenget på modellen.
Model: The locomotive has an mfx+ digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion. 8 axles powered. Traction tires. 2 each 7226 smoke generators can be installed in the locomotive. The headlight changes over with the direction of travel. The headlight, the backup light on the tender, the number board lights, and the smoke unit contacts will work in conventional operation and can be controlled digitally. The engineer's cab lighting can be controlled digitally. Maintenance-free, warm white LEDs are used for the lighting. The locomotive has an articulated frame enabling it to negotiate sharp curves. It also has Boxpok driving wheels. Steam lines are mounted to swing out and back with the cylinders. There is a close coupling between the locomotive and tender. There is a powerful speaker in the tender and the volume can be adjusted. Coupler hooks can be inserted in the pilot on the front of the locomotive. The locomotive has separately applied metal grab irons. There are many separately applied details. Figures of a locomotive engineer and fireman for the engineer's cab are included.
Length over the couplers approximately 46.5 cm / 18-5/16".
The locomotive comes in a wooden case.
Notes for operating this locomotive: The locomotive can be used on curved track with a radius of 360 mm / 14-3/16" or more. However, we recommend larger radii. Due to the overhang of the long boiler, signals, catenary masts, bridge railings, tunnel portals, etc. must be installed for sufficient clearance on curves. The track must be well mounted due to the heavy weight of the locomotive. The locomotive can only be run through a turntable or transfer table. Products bearing "Union Pacific" are made under trademark license from the Union Pacific Railroad Company.
A passenger car set to go with this locomotive can be found in the Märklin H0 assortment under item number 43617. This model can be found in a DC version in the Trix H0 assortment under item numbers 22014 and 22163.
