Comes in clear plastic box.

Bo Bo arrangement with 2 traction tires and electrical pickup from all wheels.

Directional lights - 3 forward, 2 reverse.

The manual German only.

6 pin NEM digital interface is provided.

Couplers are BTTB style however the coupler mountings will accommodate the latest Tillig versions.

Included in the box are two extra traction tires, two extra motor brushes, two extra springs for the coupler assemblies and several detail parts.

Operation is very smooth and relatively quiet. It seems to be geared for faster speeds than Tillig models as initial accelerartion is rapid.

The detail is very good, however; they elected to apply molded on hand rails and grab irons. With so many other separately applied details it is a shame these are left out.

Very nice model! It seems to me that Kuehn tends to manufacture some of his models a little bit too fat, compared to Tillig's Silberlinge cars, his cars are a bit more plump, same thing goes for his type Y/B (70) passenger coaches. His BR 211/242 looks a bit fatter than SIEGEMUND'S/TILLIG'S models and even the former Zeuke/BTTB/TILLIG (last batches manufactured by Guetzold). Which company really uses the real replica from real life. I guess it should not matter that much.
