Märklin H0 26001: Märklin Mobile Vision

Video Goggles with an Elastic Headband. The video goggles are powered by a 4.5 volt battery pack (3 each of AAA/IEC LR03 batteries) and have a service life of over 45 minutes on a battery pack. The field of vision is totally sealed by a comfortable foam ring. The images received are projected by 2 LCD screens directly onto the eyes and thereby give the illusion of a movie screen. A built-in gyro sensor controls the direction of the camera in the train by movements of the wearer's head. These goggles can also be connected directly to a DVD player for watching films. A headset included with the goggles gives stereo sound. Miniature Video Camera. This is a high-resolution color video camera with a sender frequency of 3.4 gigahertz. Power for it is picked up directly from the track (digital operation only). The low level light effect is extremely high and is caused by automatically switching to the black and white mode (similar to the human eye). The camera can be adjusted to the desired focus area by means of tweezers available in most stores. ICE 2. Prototype: German Railroad, Inc. (DB AG) class 402 InterCity Express, three-unit train set. Model: The powered end car has a digital decoder. There is one intermediate car and 1 cab control car. The pantographs can be raised and lowered but are not wired to take power from the catenary. Train length 76.5 cm / 30-1/8". AV Cable for DVD Connections. The AV cable enables you to transmit the images sent from the train to a personal computer or a television with an AV input. This cable also allows connections to a DVD player so that you can use the goggles to watch DVD films in a cinema format. Case for Transport and Storage. A high quality case with a foam core for transport and storage comes with Märklin Mobile Vision. The Märklin Mobile Vision system can be transported safely and stored in this case. This opens up the possibility of running on the layouts of your model railroad friends.

Highlights:
High-Resolution Video Camera with Low Light Level Effect Amplification.
The camera has a transmission range of over 30 meters / 98 feet even when the train is in a tunnel. The goggles are a new design with a closed field of vision for a real "cinema experience" and a movement sensor to control the camera.
The camera has an operating period of over 45 minutes.
It is immediately operational.

New: Märklin Mobile Vision. The Adventure World of Model Railroading Right from the Engineer's Cab. With the new Märklin Mobile Vision you can run on your model railroad layout right from the engineer's cab. It's real easy, place the train on the track, put on the goggles, and you're ready to go. A high-resolution miniature video camera built into the cab of a Märklin ICE model films your layout directly from the vantage point of the locomotive engineer and sends the images simultaneously to a new design of video goggles by means of the latest video transmission technology. After just a few moments you are immersed in the beauty of your layout, you see details from a totally new perspective, and you ride along as if you were personally in the engineer's cab of the locomotive. The camera transmits very high resolution images at distances over 30 meters / 98 feet, even when the train is in a tunnel, with little low light level effects – because in this situation the camera switches to a black and white mode just as the human eye would. This black and white mode generates images even in minimal light conditions that still have a sharp contrast. Another element supporting the reality of the train in operation is the movement sensor built into the video goggles; this controls the camera at the head of the train. A simple movement of the wearer's head to the right or the left causes the camera to turn in that direction also and allows you to see scenery and buildings along the route. The recorded images can be transmitted to more than just the video goggles. They can also be sent digitally to a personal computer by means of an AV cable included with Märklin Mobile Vision. At the computer the images can be cut, processed, and sound can be added. The image received can also be shown on a television with an AV input.

Furthermore, a web platform for Märklin Mobile Vision is planned to be opened starting in the spring of 2009. This platform will make it possible for you to use your Märklin Mobile Vision to run on layouts all over the world using this technology. All you will need is a normal DSL connection.

Price: Will not be available until 2009

Red Arrows in the Network of the Swiss Cross. The Swiss Federal Railways placed the famous class CLe 2/4 Red Arrows into service at the end of the Thirties. The range of services required of these lightweight powered rail cars extended from express service to regional use right on up to prestigious excursion runs across the Gotthard route. The 7 Red Arrows were all a credit to their name, but with their maximum speed of 125 km/h / 78 mph they were head and shoulders above the rest of the rail services in Switzerland, which had to make do with 100 km/h / 63 mph. The lightweight construction was also trailblazing as was the compressed air mechanism for opening and closing the telescoping sliding doors. The widely spaced trucks and the low-mounted body was designed to guarantee quiet running for these units with their weight of only 33 metric tons. Both streamlined hoods concealed the oil-cooled transformer and the two traction motors wired in series. There were two engineer's cabs in the passenger area, in which the engineer could do his job sitting; the bench next to him provided seating for 2 more passengers, who enjoyed a perfect view down the track. These powered rail cars were initially designed to run alone and therefore did not have the usual coupler and buffer equipment - this equipment was not installed until after World War II so that a lightweight freight car, for example, could go along. Despite expectations that were not completely fulfilled, the Red Arrows quickly became popular with railroad passengers and in some cases, or so it has been told, they were downright stormed. Up to 200 passengers would crowd into these cars, which were authorized for 100 passengers (70 seats and 30 spaces for standees). Mostly due to the excursion runs, they could be seen in almost every corner of the Swiss Confederation and reached a high level of recognition among the public similar to that of the Crocodiles. The Red Arrows underwent several rebuilds during their active service life, new technical features were installed, and they were given new class designations several times; the first unit was retired and scrapped in 1966 as the class RBe 2/4. By 1974 there were 2 units left on the SBB's roster, of which one was sold to the OeBB and was run for several more years in an unusual blue paint scheme. One powered rail car still exists today as an historic unit and harkens back to the time of the Red Arrows in the service of the Swiss Cross.

DC wheel set for the boxcar 2 x 70 0580.
