Prototype: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) class RBe 2/4, "Roter Pfeil" / "Red Arrow", 2nd class, in the basic red paint scheme. Road number 607. The rail car looks as it did around 1957.
Model: The powered rail car has a digital decoder and extensive sound functions. It also has controlled high-efficiency propulsion. The powered rail car has a special motor with a flywheel and a cardan shaft to the powered truck. 2 axles powered. Traction tires. The Swiss light code, 3 headlights in the front and 1 white marker light, changes over with the direction of travel, will work in conventional operation, and can be controlled digitally. In addition, the white marker light can be switched to a red marker light. The powered rail car has factory built-in interior lighting. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for the lighting. This powered rail car comes from the factory with a figure of the driver and numerous passengers. In addition, different surrounding sounds can be activated by means of the function buttons. The powered rail car has a double arm pantograph with a narrow contact strip. Length over the buffers 25.7 cm / 10-1/8".
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 ÖBB 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.
