How many locos are there? I couldn't find the number anywhere.

One can only guess as to what the current draw was for this.

At the end of the video it are 85 locos.

Perhaps, one ampere per loco?

Impressive. :!: It must of took some amount of engineering work to figure out how to make the towbar and connect it to the locomotives. Is the video going to be used in some form as advertising for the locomotive manufacturer? For those of us not understanding German and unfamiliar with European prototypes, who is the loco manufacturer :?:

No! :!:
Not only!

This was a PR event of Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg.

I guess, it was about two decades ago when Roco of Salzburg (Austria) did the same with a larger number of their H0 models of Austrian series 1020 (former German series E94) pulling their exact prototype which has a multiple of the roll resistance of German series 101.

The second try to move the loco more than 10 meters was with 85 models.

But at the very end they tried to get the prototype moving at least with the force of only a single model—successfully!!! :!:

A single model and a bunch of people....
