Fleischmann N 7770001 8-piece Train Set set: Gas turbine multiple unit class 602 DB era IV DCC 2023 New Item
Gas turbine multiple unit class 602 of the German Federal Railway. Consisting of two power heads (one motorised) and six intermediate coaches. ■ Gas turbine version of our popular TEE/Intercity multiple unit ■ 8-part, in line with the prototype ■ Equipped with interior lighting ex-works ■ With sound in both end units Because the performance of the diesel-powered VT 11.5 (class 601) proved insufficient, four power heads were converted to gas turbine drive in 1971, the most striking feature of which was the large air intakes in front of the driver’s cab which supplied the turbine with air. These defects rendered operation of these trains increasingly uneconomical, which is why the multiple units running under the designation class 602 were taken out of service again by the DB in 1978 and 1979. Only the power head 602 003 has been preserved for museum purposes. It can now be found in the DB Museum in Nuremberg.
