This is a beautiful, big heavy engine. I decided not to take it off the board to test because I didn't want to risk damaging something. This offering looks new to me.
The specifics of this set, as per the Marklin web page. 2 axles powered by means of 2 motors. Except for a few separately applied parts, the body and frame are made of metal. The locomotive has doors that can be opened. The roof is made of plastic.
The locomotive has 2 pantographs. It has a built-in digital high-efficiency propulsion for operation with DC power, AC power, or Märklin Delta/Digital.
