Märklin H0: 37501 S-Bahn Powered Rail Car Train.

ToToTrains price: $410.90/$458.84

Prototype: German Federal Railroad (DB) class 420 S-Bahn powered rail car train. Original version of the 4th production series for the Stuttgart S-Bahn network. The train looks as it did at the end of the Seventies. Road numbers 420 312-1, 421 312-0, 420 812-0.

Model: The train has an mfx digital decoder and a sound generator. It also has a 5-pole skewed armature motor with a flywheel, centrally mounted. Four axles on the intermediate car are powered through cardan shafts. The frame for the intermediate car is constructed of die-cast metal. The lighting is done with warm white LEDs, and it will work in conventional operation. Triple headlights and dual red marker lights change over with the direction of travel. The end cars have a pickup shoe changeover feature so that the pickup shoe at the front of the train is the one picking up power. Lighted destination signs along with the headlights / marker lights can be controlled digitally. There is a close coupler guide mechanism and electrical connections between the cars. The special coupling included with the train allows it to be coupled to other ET 420 units for prototypical operation. The train has factory-installed interior lighting.

ET 420 - Powered Rail Cars with the Status of a Cult. The era of the ET 420 powered rail car train began in Munich in 1972 with the introduction of the S-Bahn service at the same time that the Olympic Games were taking place. In the period following this, the use of this proven, three-part design (whose middle car was designated as the class 421) was expanded to other S-Bahn networks such as Frankfurt and Stuttgart. These were modern, fast units at that time. They were to play a significant role in commuter service and made it easier for millions of commuters to get to work faster. One unit offers space for 448 passengers, of which 194 had to be content with standing room. There is no passage way between the three cars constructed of aluminum, and an ET 420 has two electrical layouts independent of each other, hence two main relays, two transformers, etc. Each car has two power trucks, i.e. all 12 axles on a train are driven by means of nose-suspended, single-axle traction motors. The 67.40 meter / 221 foot 1-9/16 inch long train has an hourly rating of 2,400 kilowatts / 3,218 horsepower and reaches a maximum speed of 120 km/h / 75 mph. The ET 420 can be separated and coupled quickly and easily by means of the Scharfenberg coupler at the ends of the trains. Up to three coupled units are run in S-Bahn service and they enable the flexible use of a powered rail car train configured in this way. The large number of doors, 24 per unit, allows fast boarding and disembarking of passengers and enables short dwell times in stations. Over time, the second pantograph has been removed and on some S-Bahn networks 1st class has been eliminated to increase capacity. The ET 420 was bought in 8 production groups, which naturally differ from one another and which have different paint schemes. The Munich trains originally had a blue window band; the well-known orange / light gray paint scheme quickly spread everywhere. Today, the trains are all in the “traffic red” scheme customary for commuter service. The ET 420 opened up a new, successful chapter in commuter service in the urban areas; for many people it simply is the S-Bahn! And although it was still partially in service, one unit has already been transferred to the Nürnberg Transportation Museum to remain preserved for future generations.

The EC RABe – A Gray Mouse in Cheese Land. After the end of TEE service and the beginning of Eurocity connections in 1987, the 5 class RAe powered rail car trains now operating as 6-car trains were rebuilt. Second class seating was installed, the class designation was therefore changed to RABe, these powered rail car trains were given a light gray / dark gray paint scheme in keeping with the EC look, but one that was rather monotone compared to the elegant TEE paint scheme. These trains were run on the routes Zürich-Milan and Zürich-Stuttgart and were soon known as "Gray Mice". The trains' age however became increasingly noticeable, and when transformer damage and axle breaks mounted up, they were reduced to TGV feeder service between Bern and Frasne and were retired by 1999. One of the trains was overhauled and restored in 2003 to the original TEE paint scheme; it is now an historic, operational train belonging to the group "SBB Historic".

Powered Catenary Maintenance Rail Cars. The increasing electrification of railroad routes also necessitated maintenance vehicles for the catenary wires. Between 1955 and 1974, the German Federal Railroad (DB) purchased 92 powered catenary maintenance rail cars (late the class 701) based on the proven Uerdinger VT 98 rail bus. These powered rail cars have a maximum speed of 90 km/h / 56 mph. There is a rest area between the engineer's cabs that is equipped with a small workshop with shelves, a work bench, and places to sit and to wash. The pantograph on the roof is used only for grounding and to check the position of the catenary wire. The hydraulic work platform has a capacity for up to 300 kilograms / 661 pounds and it can be raised and turned. It offers almost unlimited access to the catenary wire. In addition, there is a floodlight on the roof and an observation cupola. The powered catenary maintenance rail cars were originally painted in crimson until the German Federal Railroad prescribed a striking yellow paint scheme for its maintenance vehicles.
