Translated Description from PIKO: New for 2022: With the models of the legendary rail bus VT 98 / VS 98 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn, PIKO is offering another vehicle with many highlights that is perfectly tailored to use on model railroad main and branch lines. The illuminated side train destination indicators are a real eye-catcher. The railcar is driven by a powerful miniature motor, which is equipped with flywheels for perfect running characteristics, and has a factory-installed buffer capacitor for optimal driving characteristics without sound interruptions. The railcars and control cars can be coupled to one another via electrically conductive close coupling kinematics. The lighting functions of both vehicles, including the lamps above the driver's cab, can be switched separately. Despite the structural design of the railcars and control cars, a clear view through the passenger compartments is possible. The railcar can also be used as a prototype for transporting individual freight cars. The rail bus has a PluX22 interface, thanks to which a digital decoder can easily be retrofitted. The model is also prepared for sound.
