The interior lighting is supplied with power from a continuous electrical connection throughout the entire train. The cab and control desk lighting are also each controlled separately in digital operation. Maintenance-free warm white and red LEDs are used for all of the lighting. The pantographs on the F and H intermediate cars can each be raised and lowered separately as a digital function. The train is modelled true-to-scale.
