Description & specifications

Railbus BR 173 002, DR Era IV, with different fronts after the accident

The role model
Unconventional and full of innovations:

The 2nd prototype of the railbus from the former wagon construction company in Bautzen had the potential to become a successful model.

Technical problems in the testing phase and a lack of capacity in rail vehicle construction in the GDR stood in the way. The railcar remained a loner and was retired in 1978.

After an accident on May 11, 1973, the vehicle was repaired on one side with a 5-part window front and painted differently.

Technical Equipment
The model is available in 2 variants. The analog variant has a slot according to NEM 652. The second variant is factory-equipped with FlexDec and offers a significantly expanded range of functions for digital operation with DCC:

- 13 separately switchable light outputs
- prototypical replica of fluorescent tube lighting in the passenger compartment
- illuminated toilet rooms
- Dimmable lower white signal lights
- Signal lighting can be switched on/off for each end
- Driver's cab lighting that changes with the direction of travel and switches off automatically
- RailCom active etc...

The conversion from analog to digital operation is also possible with the analog model, but with a smaller number of separately switchable light functions. There is a suitable slot for this on the roof board of the VT, which is equipped with a jumper plug in the analogue delivery state. This can be replaced by a suitable digital decoder.
