LINT

FROM PLACE TO PLACE

The railway is the link. What is true in real life also applies when playing with the H0 gauge. A commuter train travels between cities of larger metropolitan regions. Each day, it transports several millions of commuters from one place to another. Now, the Märklin Start up range also makes it possible at the scale of 1:87.

 

THE LINT

To be precise, the Alstom Coradia LINT is part of the family of commuter diesel railcars. As you may certainly know, the abbreviation "LINT" stands for light innovative commuter rail car in German language. In order to make it sound fluent, it is just called LINT.

The one-piece railcars feature a power of 315 kilowatts and a maximum speed of 120 kph. One vehicle offers 52 2nd class seats, eight 1st class seats as well as 13 folding seats in the multi-purpose compartment. 

 

THE STARTER PACK

The starter pack (item no. 29641) features the BR 640 (LINT 27). There is a total of 4 versions of the LINT (27, 41, 54, 81). Of course, it also encloses many tracks and the easy-to-use remote control. The train features light and sound effects! There is the head end signal, the diesel locomotive driving sound and the signal horn.   

 

FOR SMART MINDS

In Europe, the three-light head end signal is a railway signal for the leading railway vehicle.
