Trix 22131 Hobbies > TrainsTrix22131SBB TEE RAm Express Railcar Train with Sound
Prototype: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB/CFF/FFS) class RAm TEE I express rail car train 501 and 502. Diesel electric powered end car, compartment car, dining car, and open seating car with an engineer's cab. Same design as the Dutch TEE train class DE 1001 through 1003. Built in 1957, original version from Era III. Used for Trans Europe Express service in Switzerland, Germany, and the Benelux countries.
Model: The frame for the powered end car is die-cast metal. The train has a digital decoder for DCC, Selectrix, and Trix Systems. This decoder can also be used for conventional operation. The train has a sound effects generator with a powerful speaker. The train also has a 5-pole motor with diagonally offset commutator segments and with a flywheel, centrally mounted in the powered end car. Both trucks are powered through cardan shafts. The headlights are warm white LED's, they will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. The 66719 lighting kit can be installed in the train. The diesel motor sounds, the horn sound, and station announcements in Swiss German and Dutch can be controlled with DCC or TRIX Systems. The train has continuous electrical connections and special close couplings with a guide mechanism between the cars. The engineer's cab in the powered end car has a figure of an engineer. The train has separately applied metal grab irons. The train has a reproduction of a Scharfenberg coupler at both ends. Total train length 1,130 mm / 44-1/2".


In 1957, the Swiss Federal Railways and the Dutch State Railways placed identical TEE diesel powered rail car trains into service for the newly created TEE network. Next to the German Federal Railroad's VT 11.5, these 5 train sets were the stars of Europe's railroads where it was a question of comfort and prestige. These four-unit trains consisted of a powered end car with a performance level of 2,000 horsepower, a compartment car, a dining car, and a cab control car with an open seating area. The powered end cars were built by Werkspoor in the Netherlands and the cars were built by SIG in Switzerland. The shape of the ends of the powered cars and cab control cars reminded people of Dutch designs, and the intermediate cars had the features of Swiss passenger cars. With a total length of 97.16 meters / 318 feet 9-3/16 inches, a train set offered space for 114 passengers in first class and 32 in the dining car. With a maximum speed of 140 km/h / 88 mph, these elegant trains were used on the Amsterdam - Zürich route (TEE "Edelweiss") and Amsterdam – Paris route (TEE "Étoile du Nord" / "North Star"), and later also between Brussels and Paris (TEE "Oiseau Bleu" / "Blue Bird"). Later, these trains were also used as a TEE connection between Paris and Zürich. And, finally later they were used as the TEE "Bavaria" between Zürich and Munich. In 1976, four sets were sold to Canada and ran on the Ontario Northland as the "Northlander" on the route between Timmins and Toronto. The powered end cars were gradually replaced by American FP7 diesels and were scrapped. Five cars are now back in Europe and are waiting for an overhaul to turn them back into the RAm TEE I.


The Dutch version of this model with a digital connector and without sound is available under item no. 22132.
