VT 2.09 DR diesel railcar, era III, AC version, incl. PIKO sound decoder
- Novelty 2019 -
With the newly designed model of the rail bus VT 2.09 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn, PIKO meets a frequently mentioned wish of many model railroaders for a modern, detailed and also operational execution of the well-known piglet tax.
After the development of the innovative control logic of the DB rail bus, for which PIKO received the Golden Track 2017, it now seems logical to implement the widely used counterpart from East Germany with a corresponding logic and attention to detail.
The railcar is driven by a powerful miniature motor, which is equipped with flywheel masses for perfect running characteristics and has a buffer capacitor built in ex works for optimum driving characteristics without sound interruptions. The drive acts on both axles of the railcar. The railcars and control cars can be coupled to each other via current-conducting short-coupling kinematics. The lighting functions of both vehicles can be switched separately, allowing a clear view through the passenger compartments. For example, the traction unit automatically registers whether a control car is attached and then switches off the lighting between the vehicles.
The factory installed PIKO SmartDecoder 4.1 Sound for PluX22 of the latest generation masters the data formats DCC with RailComPlus, Motorola and Selectrix and is mfx-capable. The built-in loudspeaker is precisely matched to the rail bus. Many typical locomotive noises such as engine noise, signal horns, brake squeal and other switchable functions can be called up individually. With adjustable individual mapping. The taillight can be switched separately.
Sound is also possible in analogue mode - only engine sound.
