Description

This item is an add-on for the Basic Powered Set and does not include a locomotive

The Glacier Express is an international sightseeing train, one of the icons for Switzerland which is familiar to many people in the world. Running through the Swiss Alps from Zermatt to St. Moritz over two separate railways, it travels slowly, making the journey in a luxurious 8 hours so that the passengers can fully enjoy the magnificent Alpine landscape from the train's panoramic viewing windows.

This re-release will represent the train in its post-2006 appearance, with the new large-windowed "premium coaches". It is scaled at 1/150 scale in order to ride on N gauge track, as the prototypical train is a narrow gauge train.

Set includes:

  • Panorama 1st Class Coach B #Ap1312
  • Panorama Bar #WRp3832
  • Panorama 2nd Class Coach #Bp2531
  • Panorama 2nd Class Coach #Bp2533

Model features:

  • Smooth rolling Kato trucks with all wheel electrical pickup.
  • Optimized truck rotation on both locomotive and cars to allow the trains to go around a minimum R150mm (approx. 6") radius.
  • The Ge4/4-III can pull the train up a maximum 5% incline.
  • As this is a Japanese release of a European style train, it will come with factory installed Rapido style couplers.
  • The add-on set is a 6-car book case type, and the basic set can be stored inside.

1 review for 10-1146 Alpine Glacier Express 4 Car Add-on Set

  1. Gareth Holloway (verified owner)

    Another beautiful representation of RhB rolling stock, flawless printing. I purchased with the close coupling pack which enhances the look even more. Run really well. I gave 4 stars as wheel sets do not have power pick ups and there is not the ability as far as I can see to add the Kato interior lighting sets which is a shame as all my other coaches are lit.
