Märklin 36639 NS Class E 186 Electric Locomotive AC era VI (gauge HO)

The class (E) 186 TRAXX racers can do 160 km/h / 100 mph on the Dutch Railways (NS) and they have not only conquered its high-speed routes but have also found a place in high quality express train service. The V250 HVG trains from AnsaldoBreda were actually planned for service on the Dutch high-speed route HSL-Zuid. E 186 units designed for 160 km/h / 100 mph had to be leased as replacements and they were placed in scheduled service starting in September of 2009 on the route Amsterdam – Schiphol – Rotterdam – Breda. After successful results, there are now plans for all ICRm trains to have PRIO cars with "Sandwich" multiple unit motive power (one locomotive at each end of the train) using the E 186. At present, the NS has available 20 leased E 186 units as well as about 30 newly ordered road numbers E 186 001-045.

Prototype: Dutch Railways (NS) class E 186 electric locomotive. The locomotive looks as it currently does in real life.

Model: The locomotive has an mfx digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has a special motor, centrally mounted. 4 axles powered by means of cardan shafts. Traction tires. The triple headlights and dual red marker lights change over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. The headlights at Locomotive End 2 and 1 can be turned off separately in digital operation. When the headlights are off at both ends of the locomotive, then the double "A" light function is on at both ends. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. There are 4 mechanically working (not connected for catenary power) pantographs.
Length over the buffers 21.7 cm / 8-1/2".
